14 – The Family Gamers Podcast – A Thanksgiving Stuffing of Games!

Thanksgiving weekend allowed a lot of time for gaming! We talk about what makes a good game to play with “non-gamers”, or at least to family members who think they only like traditional big-name games.

Things to look for in a gateway game for your family:
Simple rules – But not necessarily simple strategy
Some familiarity (theme game) – Appeal to their interests!
Games that don’t require consistent commitment (party games)
Cooperative games
