a new collection...





At our place, we recently made a decision to have a no TV zone. It has been a few months and I must say we have barely even noticed a void. It is a lovely feeling to fill the spare time with baking, reading, music, walks, chatter or whatever else we feel fit!! Last night I thought it would be a nice idea to pop onto eBay and take a peek at what was on offering in the board game department. Wouldn't it be great to fill a cupboard with a collection of retro board games and puzzles, as an alternative for the time once spent in front of the box. I was so excited by all the options I found, some familiar games and others I had never heard of. Scrolling through the pages brought back many childhood memories, as we made our choices for our new games cupboard.

What is your favourite board game?


All board games and images above found via eBay.

oh my, families ties board game!! I seem to remember we had two copies of this game in my house as a child. Don't ask me why, we must have loved it!

oh i didn't know there was a family ties game! that was definitely a favourite tv show, but my fave board games as a kid were 'game of life' and 'trouble'.
can still hear that loud pop of the plastic dome...

I think my favorite game is the game of Life. I remember it so fondly from when I was a kid, and now my own daugther wants me to buy it for her!
