Tip & How-To about Games
In our family we are very competitive. When it comes to games that have sand timers like boggle and taboo things can get a little out of control. Recently we took to using a digital timer to time rounds in our games. We have found that having a timer that makes a sound when the time runs out is a lot more accurate than relaying on someone else to be watching the timer throughout the entire round.
Since we adopted the habit of using a digital timer there has been a lot less fighting over round length and the axiety of losing the timer that came with the game. Most games with timers say in the directions how long the timer runs for and with apps like "Game Timer" you can preset times for 1 minute or how ever long you want the rounds to be. Granted for games like Chess you will have to find a special made app because they count time up to total up the time each player spends on their turns.
What ever you choose to use keep it fair and keep it fun. Happy playing!
