When I was young, my family played board games, card games and dice games all the time. Monopoly, scrabble, rummoli, yahtzee, spite and malice were all regular additions to our kitchen table.
I knew that when we had children, I wanted to continue that. We started playing Candyland with Mr. J when he was young, and snakes and ladders as well. As he got older, we bought Guess Who and Connect 4. He would play The Game of Life with hubby and we broke out the game "Sorry" a few months ago.
It's a little difficult to play games with Mr. K around - he doesn't have the focus or attention for the game, and he ends up getting bored and destroying our progress. It's best (for the time being) to just play when he is asleep or busy with either myself or hubby and the other one plays a game with Mr. J.
I am a big Monopoly fan (while hubby is not) I also really enjoy Scrabble, and am excited for when the kids are a bit older and can play the regular version. For now, we play Scrabble Jr.
