My friends and I love to get the families together to play games. We love it so much that we hold a monthly game night where we get together for good food and good times. We recently played and reviewed the popular board game Battle of the Sexes as part of a review of the Family Game Night promotion at TimeToPlayMag.com – a game which pits the guys against the girls to see who really knows more about the opposite sex and whether gender stereotypes are true. Each turn the guys or girls will be asked trivia questions that are typically considered common knowledge for the opposite sex. Do you think the guys in your life will know more typical girl stuff than the girls will know typical guy stuff? This game is a fun way to find out and it was interesting to see what typical girly or masculine stuff we each knew – and how much we didn’t!
We had a blast playing Battle of the Sexes and it was harder than it looked! The game play is pretty easy – with a short and long option to choose from. We played the quick version, which is good because it took us a long time, between answering all the questions – some harder than others – and keeping our young kids entertained in the next room. We found ourselves quickly getting competitive and contemplating which questions we did or didn’t think our spouses could answer, which led to a lot of laughs! In the end, the girls finally triumphed but it was a hard battle and the guys easily could have taken the cake at any time. We will definitely look forward to playing this game again.
Do you have family game nights at your house? It’s a great way to get the family together to spend quality time – or groups of families together to reconnect with good friends or extended family.
