I'm part of a fairly large family (there's 8 of us kids when we're all there) with 6 spouses and 9 cousins - my nephews/nieces), and when we get together we often enjoy playing games together...we grew up playing games quite often on Sunday afternoons and holidays (like Scrabble, Upwords, Boggle, Rook, and such). Larry has since introduced us to many of the newer games which are generally much enjoyed.

Here are some of the games we enjoyed this Thanksgiving...

This has become a favorite card game of two of my brothers (John and Philip), and we're getting some of the nephews hooked on it too! We wound up playing 3 rounds of this...and Josh quickly learned that life is miserable when you're down to one card and you're playing behind someone who's been paying attention to what you've been picking up. I enthusiastically passed on this lesson to him much as Larry taught me this lesson a couple years ago when he taught me this game...it got to the point where after the second game, Josh changed seats so that he was playing after someone else...I think part of the reason our family enjoys this game is that we enjoy "hosing" each other when we can!devil I wound up winning one game of this and just missed out winning on the first round...while Tyler (who switched with Josh) wound up winning by a landslide on the 3rd round.

My brother John recently picked up this light card game, and we played 2 rounds of this. I'm still not convinced how much skill/strategy there is in this game, but I managed to fare pretty well, winning the first game and just losing the second.

This is one of our family's traditions when we get together...there's almost always a group that plays this game (usually I'm a part of it). This year I wasn't in the group as we had already started playing R-Eco. And for those of you who play Rook, the ONLY correct rules to play by are with rook ranked at 10 and a half and you have to play trump if you don't have the color led! There are those in my family who disagree...and I'm not sure which rules they were playing by yesterday...

We managed to squeak in one round of a nine player game of this right before supper rolled around...There was some early confusion as to who the saboteurs were and who wasn't, but it became quite apparent about half way into the game...thought the saboteurs had won as we went into the final round of cards, but we managed to loop around to get the gold with about 4 or 5 cards left...

Several of the nephews pulled this one out after supper and we managed to get through 3 of the 4 rounds before it was time to head home...Zach, Tyler, Sam, and eventually Kimberly played this game. The boys all enjoyed it immensely, with Zach telling his dad that he HAD to get this game!
