I was moved to list the games I have taught to and enjoyed playing with my wonderful wife of 15 years and daughter of 11 years. John was right. You may not have a whole life with them, so cherish every moment. Here are the games that have had the biggest impact on my family. I love every moment I get with the two most amazing ladies in the world.

People, please post any fond memories you have of the games below, or anything else that makes you smile when you think of the time you spend with love ones. It is precious.

Oh this was an experience! We could not get enough of this one! My daughter and wife were invested in this one. Wanted to open a new window, place a new sticker, loved loved loved it! We played 18 fantastic games over three months. Worth every penny times ten.

Season one was epic. Season two no less so. 24 games long, it has earned a place as the best overall gaming experience I have ever had with my family. We were scared of losing, joyus when we won. I loved the look on my family's faces when that final momentous decision was made. Truly something.

I love trying to steal or at least share cities with my wife and daughter. I say I am renting an apartment in their 'town'. They hate it with a smile. 30 plays and counting.

My daughter has won almost all of the 14 plays we have of this, our favorite Ticket to Ride map. Pennsylvania. She has lapped us before. She loves it. And so do my wife and I.

Now this one was a hard sell at first. Theme was a bit more mature for my daughter (no worries dads, the game is fine, just a bit 'world has ended')and the mechanics were new to my ladies. However, it has quickly risen to the top of a go to list for family game night. Wow is this fun! And my daughter rules at this game. 22 plays in, we still love it.

What a wonderfully cute game. 9 plays in so far. You get to live a life and tell a story, with a fun game wrapped around it. My daughter loves to show how her yoga class prepares her for a job at the United Nations, while showing off her coin collection. I of course and busy wooing a significant other who wants me to go skydiving (for the insurance money) and my wife is busy running for mayor and being an astronaut on a starship! The stories are endless, and so are the fun moments with my family. They don't realize we are telling our own story while playing the game as well. When we reach old age in the game, you can do less and less. Remember that everyone. Play with your family now while you still have actions left to take!

What a fun game. We love creating stories about how our residents love to live across the street from a slaughter house or land fill. And why people would love the car dealership next to the school! 18 plays of this and going strong.

This game is so stressful for my wife and daughter, but they both love to cook so here we are 8 plays in. We have won 50% of the time. A tricky game of real time worker placement in a crowded kitchen. Super fun and funny. My daughter laughs so hard as I go crazy trying to get the steak done and the soup cooking and shopping for fish.

This was the first cooperative game for my ladies. An early addition to our family collection. We have slayed so many orcs and goblins and trolls we lost count. And we love going toe to toe with the big baddies. Haven't played in a bit, but we have 6 plays logged. I love thinking of those early times we started gaming. Good times.

Now this is a game that brings out the laughs. The art work is funny, and we love saying 'you didn't really want that mine did you? Or that swamp? Or that mountain?' 9 plays of this and a family favorite. This is a Friday night fun time.

My second favorite game of all time. A truly wonderful game. My daughter could not get enough of this. She loves pushing the envelope. More powers! MORE POWERS! We have played with 5 hidden EACH! Certainly a weekend game due to length, but what a ride! 6 logged plays, but many more not counted. And countless laughs and surprises.

A wonderfully quick card game we play after dinner and before our family walk. Just when you think you have them down for the count, they change the rules on you! Smiles all around. 41 plays so far.

29 plays of this. Oh how we like to tease each other. 'Yes, I need that card, but I WANT that card with more of your tokens on it!' Perfect for pre-homework gaming.
