No More Small Pieces!

One of the things any mom can agree on is that toys with small pieces are the bane of her existence. This includes legos, building blocks, board games of any kind, and generally anything small enough that will go unnoticed until you step on it and nearly kill yourself trying to keep it from becoming permanently lodged in your foot.

This is one of the many reasons I absolutely love some video games. I’m not talking games with zombies, shooter games, or anything like that – especially not games that suck you in until you’re three shades paler than white and need an IV just so you’ll get some nutrition…I’m talking about video games designed after board or table games that can be played as a family or by yourself.

Here’s a list of some of the games that have been adapted to video games. Some of these, my family has and plays together on our computer, Sega Genesis (yes, we have one that still works), and Playstation 2 systems…

  • Life
  • Monopoly
  • Backgammon
  • Scrabble
  • Bingo
  • Parcheesi
  • Yahtzee
  • Family Feud
  • Clue
  • Uno
  • Dominoes
  • Cribbage

I’m sure there are way more titles available out there, these are just ones that came to my mind quickly, and that have already shown their ability to keep my feet injury-free. Are there any favorites that I’ve missed?
