Let’s be honest, the best kind of games are the ones that are easy to play and that are stress-FREE. I don’t want to fight with my kids. I don’t want to see them cry. I don’t want anyone to have any sort of meltdowns during our time together.

It’s all about having fun, right? So, I opted for games that weren’t too complicated.
