I see Family Games as Games that can be played by the whole family… ages about 8 and up… that are entertaining for adults and kids.
This includes (but is not limited to) Cooperative Games, Classic Board Games, some strategy games, dice games, memory games.
Our family is huge on gaming, and we have multiple generations playing at once. These games must engage, but not overwhelm.
