Board games and card games can be great sources of fun, frugal entertainment for the whole family.
You can find used board games (hopefully with all of the pieces intact) at garage sales or thrift stores for a great price.
Even if you decide to go out and buy a board game new, sometimes you can get a great deal–especially now during the Christmas gift-buying time.
Hasbro has a deal going on right now (it was in recent Sunday coupon inserts) where you can get rebates on select games.
Right now, we’re limited to two-player board games. Some of our favorites include: Scattegories, Scrabble, Sequence, Monopoly, checkers, and Guess Who? (haven’t played that one in ages), Connect 4, and Clue.
Some of my favorite multi-player board games include the above, and Apples to Apples, Twister (sort of a board game…not really), Boggle, and Mouse Trap.
If you have a deck of cards, you can play a ton of games. I recently learned how to play Euchre, a four-player game (can you believe I’m a Hoosier that just now learned?!), and other games include Go Fish, Hearts, and War, to name a few. If you’re all by yourself, you can play Solitaire.
What are some of your favorite board or card games? How often do you and your family play them?
