Great season of games

Over the course of five Christmas celebrations, we had the pleasure of playing several games I had never played … This, after I was grumbling about the lack of fun new games.

If you are looking for a fun time with friends, I suggest cracking open any of these games.

1. Last word is my favorite new game. It turned a room of strangers into a crowd in stitches with a few good inside jokes.

2. Set is a game I watched from afar. All the left-minded people in the room, all different ages, really got into this matching game.

3. Farkle was a great time. The math-minded can focus on odds and the rest of us can just gamble and roll the dice whenever it feels right.

4. Mexican train dominos is a good game where you can go from being in the lead to dead last in one round. Everyone has a chance to win.

5. Scrabble is an oldie but a goodie. No cheating and looking at the dictionary between turns!
