Family Board Games

If you follow the Bates, you know that Gil and Kelly and their 19 kids are always looking for ways to foster quality family time. While they love playing sports (football is a favorite for the guys), they also enjoy gathering indoors for board game competitions. Here are a few of their top picks:

BANG! (Ellie's favorite)
Boom Boom Balloon (Judson's favorite)
Ticket to Ride (Erin's favorite)

What are your favorite board games?
