great board games for families.

I am a huge fan of board games.  Huge.  I have yet to convince Viktor of their import in our lives, but the kids are finally old enough to appreciate their mothers’ mad skills.

Mad skills.


I think however, when the kids open up a package to reveal this Mythbusters board game on Christmas day, they might wipe the floor with me.

I don’t know if it’s unhealthy or not but my kids are Mythbusters obsessed.  Charming knows what ballistics gel is and routinely requests C4 for special holidays.  He also wrote a love letter to Kari Byron, and I’m not even kidding.

Look! It’s Adam Savage and Jamie Hyneman.


And Buster!  With a catapult!

Holy cow, I don’t even want to think about the things that will fly around my kitchen come Christmas morning.

  2. Celeste :

    hey, I’m sort of Mythbusters-obsessed myself. (I actually just finished watching the episode from last night that I TiVo’d.) and – I love boardgames!!! I’m thinkin’ I must have this. ;)

    • Petit Elefant :

      It’s kind of the perfect combination for you then, eh?
