Our family’s 3 generations gathered last week and everyone enjoyed playing Tripoley, Corn Hole and Bowling on our old Wii console. There was also a jigsaw puzzle and darts. It really encouraged laughter and togetherness. Wish we could all get together more often than every two years.

Before the advent of game consoles and software games on desktops, handhelds, and Internet, we gamed with boards (Life, Monopoly, Parcheesi, Risk, Scrabble), cards (bridge, hearts, Mille Bornes, pinochle, spades), dice (bunco, Yahtzee), and dominoes (42).

Double nine Mexican train dominoes. My two sisters and I live in San Diego and they always have me keep score. I usually win, and no, it is a coincidence. We used to play with our stepmother but she moved back to Iowa.

My family loves charades. The last time we were all together (Dec. 2019 😲), we played but made our own rules and without teams. A great memory was made - it was my turn to perform, and I was given the word "cash" to act out. It took over an hour for my family to get it! They were so close - kept saying "dollars" "bills" "money" etc. They finally got it when I did a sounds-like signal and then scratched my arm to indicate rash. It finally clicked for them after that. We had a big laugh about it, and it still makes me laugh when I think about it now 🤣

Charades are great!  It helps my shy friends and relatives to come out of their shells and just have lots of fun!
