DH is not a games person but I came from a family that played card games like pontoon for buttons, half pennies and pennies at Christmas!!
Over the years we have gathered commercial games to play with the family at Christmas and with friends very occasionally. This game called Cranium we bought having had great fun with friends when we stayed with them in Canada but hasn't been played very often here :(
Last Christmas I bought Cluedo crackers in a sale (yes before Christmas!!) and New Year's day we had a family with older DGC for a meal and we played Cluedo and we had great fun and have kept the cracker box and the pieces to play again sometime???
