Thanksgiving is coming up (for us Americans, anyway), which means a lot of us are about to spend a lot of time with our families. When my family gets together we like to cook, eat, laugh, eat, and play a whole lot of board games. Then we eat again.
So, in the spirit of two of our favorite activities, let's get our game on!
Scrabble ALWAYS makes its way to our coffee table during the holidays:

And it stays on the table for days because we all take hour-long turns. I'm serious. One Christmas, I played a game of Scrabble with my aunt that lasted two and a half days. (And I totally won.)

I love how the tiers and floating pieces add dimension to a traditionally flat board game. Very cool!
My aunt and uncle just informed me that Settlers of Catan will be a big part of Thanksgiving this year. So I guess I should figure out what that is.

Meanwhile, I'll just eat these adorable cookies.
Here's an old favorite:

Chinese Checkers is kinda like that game at Cracker Barrel where you have to jump the pegs, right? Except it's much harder and doesn't come with dumplings?
Ah, here's a game I'm very familiar with... on the computer. Mah jong!

Unfortunately I have no idea how to play this in real life, though. Anybody want to teach me? Or make bracelets out of the tiles with me?
This colorful cutie has nothing to be sorry for!

That's "sorry," as in, "I'm sorry for eating all of the leftover pecan pie."
Here's a perfectly piped way to show the meaningful moments in a couple's life together:

So sweet! And I'd play this game a lot more if "GO TO JAIL" was always replaced with "GO TO JAMAICA."
Here's another couple who thought outside the box:

Yep, guys. That's really cake.
Make room for a childhood favorite:

This cake makes me hungry, hungry!
And another kids' game everyone loves:
It even has gum drop mountains!
Of course, if you can't decide which game to play, why not play them all?

Just remember: be nice, let your little brother win, and never - NEVER - sell Boardwalk.
