Can the whole family enjoy Carcassonne?
Absolutely. If you can match one tile to the next, then you can play Carcassonne. And everyone loves taking part in building the board as they go. Every time you play, the countryside takes on a different look and delivers a new experience. It’s never the same board twice.

We’ll also warn you that there are expansions for Carcassonne. We’ve picked up a few ourselves and they’re fun to play too. In fact to do this board game video review, we had to pull those pieces aside since we keep them all bundled together.

You dont want to play monopoly every day but when you do it occasionally, it's actually pretty fun.
same with other board games. once at a restaurant/bar in the area where you play darts, i sat with some friends and we just played chess for about 2 hours.
give it some twist if you want, to make it even more fun or competitive.
other friends of mine play poker regularly. good time to eat dinner together, probably potluck, and then enjoy each other's company using chips or real money (pennies and nickels level).
