6 Pro tips for a smarter family game-time: TIP#3

April 10, 2018

Give them an opportunity to explain the strategies they come up with, and share their insights on the rules, principles and qualities of a game you share. Ask questions like: what can you tell me about this game? what do you like about this game? How did you know to make that last move?
