Any day is a good day for games........but when you're snowed in with everyone and have that opportunity for even more game time with the whole family, what do you play? Here's some we got in the past two snowy days in CO.

If we only had this many sets!!.......we could have had the biggest battle ever! However, we got in about 6 good games with the 3 sets we have - made it much easier to leave it all out and set up new games rather than packing it and unpacking it from one weekend to the next.

This one seems to take us longer than Risk so it is appropriate with the time given to get in at least one game.

Good standby for a snowy day - haven't got to it yet - probably later today (after creating this geeklist sounds good).

Both my son (1st grade) and I got a snow day today and we played a bit of Pirateer in the morning. We planned to play Africa after lunch, but by lunchtime the two feet of snow that had fallen yesterday had entirely melted from the streets, and he suggested we see Robots instead. Sigh.

We were going to visit some friends Saturday evening and decided not to. If we did, we'd have a lot more interesting games if we were snowed in over there.

We haven't played this seriously all the way through before. It has more strategy than I first thought. We gave my son 10 extra vouchers as a handicap and he won the game.
