Of all the board games, my favorite is scrabble. I used to play this when I was still in college together with my co-student assistants assigned at the Father's Quarter of the school. Even the priests played with us sometimes.
I helped my son play but my daughter is so independent that she refused to help. At the end though, I helped her strategize in placing some of her tiles which ended up her winning. I love the fact that not only they are learning the game but they are also learning things like accepting help from someone from time to time.
