The best part of growing up in a family with three kids and a house ful of cousins was the massive game closet that inevitably develops as a result of birthdays and holidays. And now that we’re all grown up, get-togethers still aren’t complete unless there is at least one deck of cards on hand. Even now, my siblings (and their spouses) and I tend to be a wee bit competitive — doesn’t everyone trash talk while playing gin? We’re always looking for new games to play. If you miss the game-playing days of your youth, there’s no time like the present to bring them back.
