Games, Games, Games

When we have family gatherings we like to play games. Catch Phrase is a favorite, especially when the Redding clan get together. Advantages of game playing:

It is a lot of fun
A great option to TV
Creates togetherness
Builds memories
Strengthens reasoning skills and a whole lot of other skills
Releases energy and tension with a whole lot of laughs
Is not dependent on travel or electricity
Is economical entertainment
Wholesome
All ages can enjoy game playing
Most games do not require a huge time commitment

Why not try some game playing this weekend or this evening?

Games we own- these are not in any particular order - Catch Phrase, Life, Risk (2 versions) Clue(2 versions), Scrabble, Worst Case Scenario, Dominoes, Chess, Pick Up Sticks, Cards, Solitaire Frenzy, Pretty Pretty Princess, Stratego, Monopoly, Boggle, Bibleopoly, Battle Ships, Hang Man, Cranium, Rubiks Cube 4 and 3, Probe, Parcheesi, Masterpiece, Chinese Checkers,Yahtzee, Sorry, Poker cube, HiQue, I Spy, Tourist Toss Up - West Virginia, Upwords (2 Versions), Sudoku, Uno, and a few I am sure we didn't list. Remember we have a game closet still stocked in WV and a stack of games here in Washington.
