Games for Kids

When was the last time you played a game with your kids? I love games, any kind of game. For a dad, it is a great way to interact with your kids. There are even some good ones online where everyone can play together. I made a list of all the games I like. What are your favorites?

Board Games:

Monopoly - probably the best board game of all time. What a great way to learn capitalism :)
Risk - another great one. Even better to learn world domination :)
Catan - great game. learn about trade, strategy, resources.
Shadow Hunter - a new game I played recently, a bit gory, but very interesting.
Pandemic - I like this one because you all work together to save the world.

Card Games:

Poker - Good game to learn how to read others and anticipate.
Gin Rummy - Easy to learn and fun
Uno - Classic, fast paced, easy to learn
Dominion - a great game that can change each time you play.
