So I have found my new favorite board game, by a long shot! This game is seriously perfect for our kids. This week I played this game with our sons, ages 7, 6 and 4 and my nephew played it with me, too… age 5. I think that we played this a minimum of 6 times on vacation. I kid you not. It is my new favorite game for family game night!

- Studies have shown that having a high emotional quotient boosts career success, relationship satisfaction, leadership skills, health, humor, and happiness.
If you land on the red cards, they are action cards. Some examples are: Jump on one foot, balance your game piece on two fingers, do 20 jumping jacks, have a staring contest, or this one…
