Get your Game On with HASBRO

We have an entire cabinet overflowing with board games, yet we’re always looking for more to add to our collection. We use them throughout the year; whether we play as family, with guests or classic fun for the kids. It’s a great opportunity to unplug, visit, connect, and simply have a change in routine. Unless you routinely have game night and in that case – great for you! 

So, it may come as no surprise that board games are top gifts to give at Christmas, they are just one of those items that people rarely buy for themselves despite meaning to. 

You can bet that HASBRO released some new games in 2015. Here’s just a very small sampling of new HASBRO games perfect for gifting, rather than daunting lists, let’s keep it simple. These three would cover fun for the entire family!

  37. We definitely do not play often enough. It is so hard to play as a family with a 14 mth old.
