Every year it gets to Christmas, all the board games come out, we have a fantastic time playing with them together as a family and they are then packed away again not to be seen for another year.
This year however I made a pact with myself that we would dedicate one night a week to all get together as a family and take a few hours to connect through the fun of board games.
We are so preoccupied with ourselves all week and get lost to the world of social media most evenings that I felt it really important to have some screen free time and just concentrate on each other.
Sadly I think the days of relaxing Sunday afternoons filled with roast dinners and quality family time are dwindling due to the fast pace of today’s world and it is something I would like to try to keep hold of in our family.
The only problem we have is our family spans such a large age group that it can be tricky to find something that everyone has fun playing and is going to keep everyone engaged.
University Games kindly sent us a game called Yeti In My Spaghetti that seemed a perfect way to kick off our games evening.
The game is set up really quickly by laying the strands of spaghetti over the top of the bowl and then balancing the yeti on top.
We then took it in turns to try and remove the stands of spaghetti one at a time without letting the yeti fall into the bowl.
The only issue we had was the youngest two got a little excited when the yeti fell and decided that that the person to make it fall the quickest was a much better way to play!
This was a real all rounder that would be great to play as a family or so easy to follow that it could be set up and played by the little ones on their own.
* we were given this game for the purpose of this review and they are all my own, honest opinions.
