We love ourselves a good board game. Mel’s Kitchen Cafe not only has the best recipes, but the best games too! Here a link to all of her gift guides. Her games have the same reputation as her recipes: we’ve never tried one she recommended that the whole family didn’t love!! (The non-game ideas are awesome too by the way!)
Her most recent post included Telestrations. I’ve seen it before, and had it in my wish list even, but when it was at the top of her Top 20 games of all time list, I didn’t hesitate to pull the trigger. It’s basically a drawing game of Telephone!
What we love about this game:
- Everyone can play and it’s the same fun level for all of us. (All players just have to be old enough to read and write)
- Easy set up, there aren’t a billion pieces
- You can play for hours, or 15 minutes
- We laugh really hard…and who doesn’t like to laugh really hard??
