Family Game Night

Not playing a game tonight, fighting off a migraine at the moment.

But I was curious  about how many of you out there on this cold Sunday (in Chicago at least) are spending your time.  Or more to point, how many of you all have a family game night?
If you do what do you play?

Around here the old Dungeon! board game is a fave.  But we also play a lot of Scrabble and Monopoly.
I have gotten my wife into a few games of D&D before, but it's really not her thing.
I never gotten her to play Ghosts of Albion despite all the time I spent on it. ;)

Speaking of family games.  Just decided that we are not going to Gen Con this year.  Might go to Gary Con, but don't really know yet.  I am hoping some con opens up locally that I can take my boys to.

We don't do RPGs (although I've been thinking it would be fun to learn) but we love family games! Monopoly is R's face and D has recently gotten into word games. Have you played Qwirkle? It's a great visual puzzle/strategy game.

Yvonne, thanks it did get better!

Jody & Beth, I should pick up something for you guys as a "starter kit" to try out.

Never played Qwirkle. I'll have to look it up.

It's sad, but even though my wife and I run a gaming store, we don't have a family game night. Part of that is that during the week, we're only all home together on Wed night (after family Tae Kwon Do).

I have started a D&D Next game just for my 2 youngest though.

We'll play trivia or Scrabble. If we're pressed for time, we'll just grab a deck of cards.
