Step Away From Screens With the 19 Best Family Board Games


imageIt’s good to take a break from screens every now and then.The great outdoors has plenty to offer, but there are times when you’re stuck inside for one reason or another (like a surging pandemic).Board games are a fun way to gather everyone around the table to engage in some group escapism.

My family has had a board game night most weeks for a couple of years now, and we’ve discovered some great family games.These are our favorites, created with the help of my two kids, aged 9 and 12.
