I raised 3 sons, and Tuesday night was Fun Night. They could choose one board or other game. They took turns for 3 weeks. The fourth week, we played Charades. Sometimes we would vote on allowing blank paper to be drawn on for clues in Charades.
My boys span 10 years, and we continued to play until the youngest (and last one home) was tired of it, about age 12 or 13. They still talk about that now and the youngest is 30. Games and a few treats, what could be better to keep the family close. I was a single mom working 2 and sometimes 3 jobs, so this was especially important to us.
