It’s New Year’s Eve! Can you believe 2012 is about to draw to a close? It has been an amazing year that seems to have gone by all too fast. 
New Year’s Eve has a whole new meaning now that I am a parent. Gone are the days of heading out on the town to parties. Babysitters seem to be available any day but New Year’s Eve. It’s all good though. I think I have come to love enjoying a quiet New Year’s at home with the family.
In prior years, we would spend New Year’s Eve ordering in Chinese take-out and watching a movie before tuning into New Years Rockin’ Eve. This year things will be a little bit different. My children are no longer infants, so I want them to join in on the fun.  We’ll be heading out to dinner for the evening to a nice local family restaurant, and heading home afterwards to have a family board game night. We’ll be playing Hasbro classics like Guess Who?, Battleship and Words With Friends.
Zynga Words With Friends is a board game that I was recently introduced to by the fabulous PR team at Hasbro. I had never played it online, but I knew many friends who did and loved it.

“Have the wordiest fun right at home with the new WORDS WITH FRIENDS game, based on the addictive online game! Take 7 tiles and create words vertically or horizontally that connect to previous words when it’s your turn. If you use all your tiles first, you get to add the points from your friends’ remaining tiles to your own score. Do you have the words to win? Find out when you play the classic WORDS WITH FRIENDS game!” – Hasbro Canada

As a lover of Scrabble, Words With Friends is great for me! It’s like an unstructured game of Scrabble. I love it. The game can be played with 2 to 4 players. The board game comes with the game board, 104 tiles, 4 tile racks, tile bags and rule sheet. The one thing I wish the game also came with was scoring sheets. Make sure someone in your group is good with math, and that you have paper and a pen on hand to keep score when you sit down to enjoy a hilarious evening playing this game among friends!

My husband and I played Words With Friends for the first time earlier this week. It was a nice spin on a classic board game, which we have now happily added to our board game collection. It’s not a game I could play too often, as I think the concept although addictive may grow old fast. However, that is just my opinion.

If you are looking for a new board game to pick up for a family game night, check out Zynga’s Word With Friends. You won’t be disappointed!

    With a 2 1/2 year old we are all about games like Candy Land right now. I honestly can’t remember the last time I played a more “grown up” board game! Might be kind of fun…..

    Games are fun! Maybe we’ll do a game tonight 🙂
    Snakes and Ladders is my sons favourite as it was mine when I was a wee one.

    My hubby and I love word games and board games too, so I’ll have to check this one out. Our girls are starting to get old enough to be interested in games too (just barely!). 🙂

    I’ve heard so much about the Words with Friends game but I’ve never understood what it was. It sounds like fun. My parents are huge scrabble fans so I’m sure they’d like to play the game with us.
