I'm not a huge fan of board games but a few years ago someone gave Naiya the classic favorite - Candyland. I never had this game as a child so, unlike some friends of mine, the thing holds no sentimental value for me and, frankly, I find it rather boring. I suppose board games can help children learn to follow instructions, instill patience and teach them that sometimes there are winners and losers in life. I don't know... I'm just not good at enforcing the rules when we play and often the game degenerates into something it was never meant to be.
