There’s a whiny wi-fi goblin that likes to rear his head in our house from time to time. We’ve mastered the art of turning the router off, which effectively puts the goblin to sleep, but his young allies get all whiny about it. So, we’ve been playing more board games as a family to try and fill the void. LOL. Whether you’re trying to vanquish a whiny wi-fi goblin, or just trying to spend more time together as a family, here are some board games your family will love!
