The Northwestern ran an article talking about how board games where a big hit this holiday season.

There were a lot of your average mass market games mentioned, but a few hobby games were mentioned also. Gift TRAP, Apples to Apples, and SORRY! Sliders where also mentioned as gifts received.

During the winter months, it’s great to have games as indoor, family entertainment.  It’s also nice to see that in world where more and more kids want more and more expensive, electronic, gifts, that board games still have a place in the gift giving season.
