Important Rules and Regulations for a Successful High-Tech Family Game Night

Important Rules and Regulations for a Successful High-Tech Family Game Night

I hope you’ve enjoyed this series on how to create a high-tech family game night. Today I’m wrapping up the series with a few important guidelines worth keeping in mind for any family game night:

  • Good sportsmanship pays. Gaming isn’t about sour grapes. After all, everyone’s ultimately a winner.
  • Play nicely together. Set up a system so everyone takes turns, and gets to experience titles for an equal amount of time.
  • Praise kids’ performance. Win or lose, any time they give it their all, it’s a job well done.
  • Encourage teamwork. Join forces to surmount obstacles or shut down opponents.
  • Avoid trash talk. If nothing else, it’ll keep kids from sassing you after kicking your sorry butt in a rematch.
