Games teach us the value of teamwork, build skills, engage the mind, and bring out the competitive side of us. They can build fondness for each other as you laugh and compete. They can build admiration as your spouse demonstrates their skills and strategies. They can also help you build problem solving skills. Who knew you were building all that in your marriage by having fun playing games together?
If you don’t have a game system, choose a board game or card game, or any type of game. The prize you set should be something fun, intimate, or creative. Stay away from prizes that one would not want, such as chores. — Oh…and be sure to rejoice whether you win or lose.
