    On the rare occasion we do play a board game, it is always Aggravation. Love it!

    I grew up playing aggravation with my grandmother on a board made by my uncle while he was in school. Such fond memories. My husband and I play cards or yahtzee every night after supper and enjoy the time to unwind from our day.

      Kris, good to see you on here! And that is so nice that you and your husband do that every evening…I sometimes feel that society has become so wired, so internet-driven…time spent playing games like that with one another has to be great for a relationship!

    I grew up playing Aggravation as well. We had a board for 4 players and one for 6. I have one of the boards and I believe my brother has the other. It’s a great game because even fairly young children can understand and play. What great memories it brings back! Hundreds and hundreds of hours trying to “aggravate” one another lol

Her favorite? Scrabble! Every night we play a game of Scrabble. She loves word games….and so do I. She’s also learning the game of Chess from her Uncle.

    Carroms is an old board game we played many many years ago. The board fit over the top of a card table, with net pockets in the corners. Playing pieces were ring circles you tried to get into the corner pockets. I feel like this is really showing my age even knowing about this game. I still have the board my parents had.
