We play no less than three of those games every day, so I just decided to leave them piled up there for now.
I got the nostalgia versions of Sorry and Candy Land because I liked that they came in durable, tin boxes and thought they might hold up longer than the cardboard-boxed versions. My family and I used to play Sorry quite a bit at one point in my childhood, so boy is it a trip to play the same game with my own family now!
My brother used to get SO mad if I drew the Sorry card and sent him back to the start. I think I remember the Sorry board flying across the room at one point- LOL. Steevenson starting crying the first time I did it to him too, but thankfully, after a heart to heart about board games being just for fun, and showing him how quickly things can turn around in these kinds of games, he only did it that one time. Now any time I draw a Sorry card he’ll say, “It’s okay, Mama. You can put me back to start.” before I even decide if I want to. 🙂
He’s such a sweet boy. Still a builder, too. He loves K’Nex …especially with his Daddy.
I highly recommend them if your kiddo is bored with Lego sets. The K’Nex set that they’re playing with in these photos has enough pieces to make 60 different things! We bought ours on Walmart.com and you can find many more sets for all different age ranges there.
He decided to make the frog today. 🙂
His 8th birthday is coming up (November 23rd!) and I’m thinking about surprising him with a few more board games I used to love. Remember Clue? Gosh, that was my favorite! I think it might be little over his head right now, but I noticed Walmart has a junior version, so I might grab that one instead.
What were your favorite games as a kid?
