Are you a board-game family? Call us!!!

Remember board games? Clue, Monopoly, Battleship, Taboo?

Some people still gather the family around these non- electronic games for a night of family fun. If this is you — call us!

Our Country Living issue of Mankato Magazine in August will take you back to a simpler time.

And, as such, we want to feature families who choose Cranium over XBox, Blokus over Wii, Sorry over Playstation.

E-mail Nicole Smith at nicolere­, or call Amanda Dyslin at 507-344-6388, or comment on this blog post.


  1. Ashley and I still play Monopoly all the time. My favorites board game is called "Shrieks & Creaks" from the '80s. It included a cassette tape with scary messages from a vampire host named Simon Shriek. You had to listen to the cassette in order to receive clues and directions on how to escape a haunted castle. It's super kick ass. :)

  2. Neat! Mine was something like Dream Date. You either ended up with a big nerd, or a big hunk. I'll tell Nicole Smith she can call you for the story. : ) If you know of anyone else who board games it up, let me know.
