Playing Card Games Strengthens Family Ties, Says WSJ

A recent Wall Street Journal article confirmed what we here at Bryant Park have suspected for a long time: there are many more benefits to playing games than just having fun. We are proud to offer 45 different games at our Games Cart, from card games to board games. The Games Cart is open daily from 11am to 7pm, so Family Game Night can strike at nearly any moment!

According to the article, the following are benefits that you can reap from playing games with your family:
  • Games teach math, memory, and strategic thinking skills
  • Games allow children an opportunity to win against parents and older siblings, building confidence
  • Games offer a chance for friendly rivalry and conversation that strengthen family ties
  • Games can be enjoyed with players of different generations
  • Games are an interactive alternative to solitary video games 
  • Games help young children practice following rules, taking turns, matching, and counting

This group is reaping the benefits of playing games together.
