    I really like some of the points you made about why it’s good to have family game night. You’re so right that as we get older and technology grows we disconnect from our families more and it’s always good to be with them. I like what you said about it being a good way to make memories. Memories are apart of who we are, and it’s important to have good ones. Also, great game suggestions and I like how you talked to other people about their family game nights, it goes to show that every family is different!

    Yes! Playing games can be great to connect and have a good time with your family. And with being busy at school it helps to just sit down and enjoy the company of your family.
