Family Time Fun ~ Giveaway Closed

One lucky reader will win a Gather 'Round Restaurant Game!

Our family is really big on always eating dinner together even when we are super busy. So I was really happy to review one of their games. Food and games my 2 favorite things! We had a blast playing this at dinner table. (Now if only doing dishes was a fun game!)

Here is some information from their website:

Spending fun, quality time with your family is more challenging everyday. Soccer practice, homework, weekend errands, office work...all seem to get in the way of a family enjoying each other's company.

As a father of two young children, I had the same problem and wanted to find a solution. So I decided to take advantage of the few evenings a week that I had dinner at home with my wife and kids. We started playing word games at the dinner table while we ate.

We quickly discovered that these simple games added extra fun to dinner, opened everyone up to conversation (even the kids), and extended our time together by 10 to 15 minutes. As the weeks went by, we realized that we were enjoying more quality time together, without even trying.

I'm happy to share these games with your family. Some of the games are educational, some are silly, some help start good conversation, but all of them are fun for the whole family. Hopefully you'll discover the same wholesome family fun that my family has.

We do Pizza Night but I never thought of including family games in that. What a great idea! I see they have a game specifically for Pizza Night.
