W5- Family Fun: Game Night


Each and every day we enjoy each other’s company, whether it is a snuggle in the morning or story time at night, or playing with the remote controlled helicopters, or even watching/playing jeopardy together.  Tonight we had planned on having game night, and decided to finally try out the game “Stratego!” 

We had never played this game before and were excited to try it out.  We got out the pieces, read all the directions aloud, and began our adventure in “capture the flag.”  It was the boys against the girl…with Charles being the leader of his team.  We hadn’t really developed a game strategy, but that is definetely why the game is named “stratego,” because it is all about strategy.  I lost the game, but it was a lot of fun and I have a few new ideas for next time we play to see if I can’t defend my flag better for Round 2. 

There are so many great games out there, ones for all types of people and with all sorts of themes.  I encourage you to take your family to the game section of a store-Barnes and Noble has a great selection, as does Target, WalMart and Toys R’ Us.  Happy playing!!!
