The thing about giving board games as a gift is that they can get a bit dull after a few rounds through. Once kids have played a game six or seven times, they know the drill. Keep things in a constant state of chaos (the mother-approved kind) by setting the kids up with a Hasbro U-Build Game. These games take the basic components of Sorry ($10), Battleship ($15), Mousetrap ($15), Monopoly ($15), and Connect 4 ($15) and break the board into movable, connectible blocks, allowing players to construct a new board each time they play. We promise these games won't wind up collecting dust on a shelf since every time the box gets opened there's a new board waiting inside, and building it is part of the fun!
