Do you play games with your kids?
If so, which ones and how old are your children?

I love video games, but most of the games I love are rated M, so I can't play them while my children are awake, which doesn't leave a lot of time to play anything. So, I've started playing co-op games with my son (7). We love the LEGO games.

Recently, we bought Skylanders, which has a cool concept. You buy figurines that you use to choose which character to plan in the game. My son LOVES it.

Neither are very challenging, but it's nice being able to play games, period, and spend time with my son as well.

Minecraft is a family favorite at my house right now. My kids are 11 and 14, but my 4 year old nephew plays (not very successfully though) as well, and really enjoys it.

Thanks to Jaidynsmum for my new siggy!

Not yet. It is something we look forward to when they get older though. Although Jasmine already likes to help me design patterns for Sims3 and loves to watch me play Civ5. We've even taught her about some of the different leaders and nationalities because of Civ5. She's a real little historian!

Lucy likes to watch me play WoW. She loves to cheer me on. "Yay Mummy! You did it!" after each and every kill.
