Our favourite board game... Or I should say board gameS, as there are several expansion packs, are the Ticket To Ride series of games. We actually first discovered it via the iTunes iPad app. I'd been thinking about getting the app for a while, in the end I decided to go for it... and we were hooked.
...then followed the boardgames. So much fun! I love strategy games :)
For Christmas we got Mum & Dad Ticket To Ride USA. And day 27th in my Christmas album features the premiere for their new game and the evening we were teaching them how to play. We played several evenings in a row after this :)
