Bored? Try Some Classic Board Games

Bored? Try Some Classic Board Games

At Cravings Gourmet Popcorn we believe that nothing goes better with popcorn than family game night! And, nothing goes better with family game night than classic board games.  In honor of National Games and Puzzle Week we celebrate some of the greatest games of all times.

How many of us learned our first lessons on how to play by the rules by hopping our Gingerbreadman game piece back and forth on the colorful path to Rock Candy Mountain in Candyland?   Or, when we got a little older, enjoyed the twists and turns of Chutes and Ladders and the reversals of fortune that come regularly in the game of Sorry? 

Who can forget the whodunit game of Clue and solving murder mysteries that involved characters like Colonel Mustard and Miss Scarlet?  Was it with the candlestick or the rope?  As we got a little more sophisticated, so did our games – marathon games of Life and Monopoly fine-tuned our understanding of economy, planning, strategy and negotiation. 

For the more cerebral nothing satisfies like a challenging word game of Scrabble or a speed round of Chess? 

Or, if you are in the mood for an evening full of giggles and laughs, pack up the board games, pull out the Twister spinner and spread out the colorful floor mat and let the contortions begin! 

Don’t forget the Cravings Popcorn to top off family game night.

Cravings Gourmet Popcorn is located in Old Town Lansing, the hippest area of Lansing, Michigan.  Cravings Gourmet Popcorn can be purchased online and shipped to anywhere nationwide.
