Top 10 Family Board Games for Dads and Kids

I grew up playing Pit at all kinds of parties and youth activities. And it is still a lot of fun, but you will have the most fun with a larger group. In Pit, the participants simulate a trading pit where trader try to assemble all of the cards of one type of product. You trade with other players trying to get a full hand of wheat, barley, oats or another commodity. Thrown into the mix is a “bull card” which acts like a wild card and a “bear card” which, if you have in your hand, you can't win. Shrewed trading is the order of the day. The first one to assemble a full hand of all the products is the winner.

Interview: Are the kids alright after all?
You're hanging with your homies at the crossroads when you spot a plain-clothes nark. Do you: (a) pull your baseball cap down over your eyes and your hoodie up over it, and try to mooch off down an alley, or (b) hijack that suburban car waiting at the lights with a "Baby on Board" sign to make a rubber-burning getaway?
Whatever - it's only a computer game: one rather like Grand Theft Auto. The one parents tell the kids is destroying their morals and rotting their brains. But perhaps if they listened to many academics and educationalists, rather than newspaper columnists, they would find that these specialists see a neuro-learning revolution going on in computer games.

My kids and I have been inventing board games and we're getting more sophisticated, how can i market them?

Well first of all you need to develop a business plan, which will help you with all the questions you have right now.
The business plan will direct your efforts to research those answers you're seeking, also will show you if your board has probabilities ( Good or Bad ) of selling your product.
I don't have the link for a tutorial web page that will help you devise your business plan, if you contact me this monday by yahoo, with pleasure I'll give you the web site ( Because I have it in my office ;p ).

Why was clue the board game invented?

Clue was invented as "Cluedo" in the United Kingdom in 1944. The game's original title is a ploy on Clue, (it's technical title) and Ludo, a game with a similar dice play strategy. It was invented as a way to pass the time with friends while waiting out air raid drills in underground bunkers and shelters. Nonetheless, it has remained a popular game.
