Jan says: In less than three weeks, my family, including children and their partners, will be gathering in Seattle, WA for 12 days. After various days in Seattle sightseeing and in Bellingham seeing family, we will travel to the coast of Washington State to spend three nights in a large rented house. With nine adults (from almost 20 years old and up), I am thinking that we need to have some activities pre-planned–like GAMES! (Any ideas will be appreciated.)

So this Friday Five is about games, so play on ahead. . . .

1. Childhood games?

  • Scrabble
  • Clue
  • Checkers
  • Chess
  • Battleship

2. Favorite and/or most hated board games?

  • I loathe True Blue.
  • My favorite is Balderdash.

3. Card games?

  • Spades or Hearts

  • UNO Attack!
  • Poker
  • Gin
  • Shanghai Rummy
  • Solitaire

4. Travel/car games?

I always read. Tho my sister and I would play a game on who could spot the most out-of-state license plates. Of course that means keeping track of which state you are in….

5. Adult pastimes that are not video games?

We have Taboo!, Scrabble, checkers, Yahtzee, and plenty of decks of cards. You could do some sort of crafts or have a scavenger hunt.
