Marcia Miller's Reflections & Resources

Glorious Games!

Board games are great for all ages, and a fun way to spend some time together.

We love all kinds of games.  Over the years we’ve enjoyed a variety of board games, card games, and dice games.  Here are a few of our favorites:


Oh Scrud!  Word fun with cards

Apples to Apples: The Game of Hilarious Comparisons!

SET: The Family Game of Visual Perception

Muggins! Analytical Aerobics for the Mind

Yahtzee: The classic shake, score, and shout dice game!

The Settlers of Catan: A Game of Discovery, Settlement and Trade

Lewis & Clark Exploration Card Game

Into The Forest: Nature’s Food Chain Game

Monopoly: The Fast-Dealing Property Trading Game


These friends are playing Apples to Apples: The Game of Hilarious Comparisons! This is an especially good game for group gatherings. We like to have lots of games available for whenever friends get together.

Bananagrams is a marvelous word game for all ages. Usually it's a fast-paced game, but sometimes we play a slower game in order to have time to find longer, more complex words just for the extra challenge.
This was a cooperative Bananagrams effort, with everyone working together to create one large collection of anagrams using all the tiles in the pack.
Aadrial and Ben enjoy a classic game of Monopoly.
