    Christmas

    I need some ideas for family oriented gifts for the holiday season. My kids are asking for a gifttrap. Anyone know if this is good for my teens? Help me please!

    I think GiftTrap is a good social game, and it''s family friendly. I googled it and found a link for it, I thought it might help you. http://www.gifttrap.com

    According to google, it seems to be a board game about competitive gift giving.

    I haven't played, but they claim it is appropriate for all ages.

    I'd think if they like "get together" type board games, they'd enjoy it.

    i don't know if you guys have an xbox 360, but I know they just released Scene it with special controllers for that system. Sounds pretty cool. Has anyone played that game? Are the questions pretty cool, or are they cheesy?

    Any of the "get together" type board games would be fun! Most of them are age appropriate for teenagers, I think.

    We are board game folks here! Here are some of our favorites:
    Scene It (any addition)
    DVD trivial pursuit
    Apples to Apples (this is my absolute favorite...and it is even more fun, when you have a "generation gap" between players)
    Mad Gab
    Catch Phrase

    Other gift ideas for families (bear with me, I don't have teens...just thinking back to my teen years):
    Event tickets to something fun for the family
    Movie night basket (with popcorn)
    Anything related to what they are into. Art (art supplies), sports (gym membership, or tickets, etc.).

    they also have a version that is a little different that runs on your DVD player.
    If you do have a 360 Rock Band is totally not crafty but SUPER fun and gets everyone involved...
    what are your kids into?

    Another good one is Scattergories. We've played a variety of different games at family get-togethers, but Scattergories is the most popular, especially with the teenagers.

    I also really love "fill or bust" I remember playing when I was really young so I think it is good for most ages.
