Games, cereal, gift card . . . oh my!


Get ready to go retro!

Big G and Hasbro are going retro to bring back family game night and, to help spread the word, I have a giveaway for you! But first, let me tell you a little about the deal. This spring, the two companies are putting out their products in retro packaging, using designs from the 50s through the 80s.

They have all sorts of retro board games -- Parcheesi, Scrabble, Clue and Risk -- that have been re-released in "vintage" formats, only at Target. I was sent a package with Parcheesi, a game I'd never played. It was pretty easy to figure out so my 5 year old and I have played it several times. 

Board games are a great way to spend family time together. If I ever suggest playing a board game with my older son, his eyes light up. It is interactive in a real-life way and I think kids appreciate having that time with their parents.

So, I try to play games with the kids when time (and energy level!) permits. Now, with the retro Parcheesi, we have another game in our rotation. Fun!
