Blogmas Day 16 – Board Games

So I’m writing today’s blog when I really should be proof reading my literature review and cutting it down by 50 words to reach my 6,000 word limit. But the day this post goes out is the day I’ll have my work handed in and I’ll have finished my first term doing my masters degree.

Today I’m going to tell you about a few of the games we love to play at Christmas as a family/

Trivial Pursuit


Now I won’t pretend I’m any good at Trivial Pursuit – partly because the edition we have at home is quite an old version and I’m a bit young for some of it! But I always team up with my brother or my dad and then I do OK 😉



Rummikub is quite an old game and I’m not sure how many people will know about it, but its basically a number game. Not too difficult though. It’s all about sequencing your tiles by number/colour to get rid of your tiles first.



This game is great fun. It is really hard to explain but basically you get a set of statements, all of which give you clues about words. The answers to the sets of statements you get are all linked in a way and you have to work out how. Its so much fun and the first team to get cards spelling out LINKEE win.

Other games we like to play include: Articulate, Cranium and Game of Life.

Are there any games that you like to play with your family?
