Remember the times of family game night?
Well maybe not. It may have been before you were born. Back in the 60’s and 70’s board games, or board game night was very popular. Yes, TV’s were invented and people were huddled around a smaller off color Television, but they were actually together watching those programs.
Before getting into ideas for family game night, here’s what can typically happen because of this media filled life that we all are part of.
Do you ever run into issues with watching football instead of spending time with your family? Does your wife want to do other things with the family, being outdoors and getting a nice seasonal experience this time of year?
Some families go ahead and watch a game together and love it!
What about those who are not naturally inclined to sit and watch a whole game, so would rather be doing other things when at home such as watching videos on their tablet?
Well, there are a couple options with some new and some not so new ideas. I will surely welcome your comments even if it does not pertain to one of these suggestions..
Ideas for Family Game Night
#1 Go ahead and get a board game.
Thats it! You know what to do with that.
#2 Watch a football game together.
As mentioned simply watching a game in the fall together can be a real challenge for ones who are not ready to invest the time into something they are not so passionate about.
#3 Play Fantasy Football Together.
This option takes quite a bit of setup, but it can be done when planned ahead. You would just have to find a non-season long league. Downsides could be many such as lack of understanding of the game of fantasy and many more.
#4 Play the FireFan App
There is a unique chance for interaction once downloading the app to follow along in a structure that allows you to pick your team, set up just a couple pre-game setting and just play a half of football, or a whole game, calling simple strategic moves for both teams that move them down the field, or stop them cold.

While the board game is good for some, allowing one to multi-task for those of us who are football gamers, the app will allow a change in how time is spent for parties of people who want to interact in the 21st century, which should be the best thing since sliced bread, or at least the television itself.
