Why board games at Christmas?

No one really knows the answer to this, but rest easy knowing you're not alone. Research by Mattel shows that nearly half of families (46%) will have at least one row over board games during the Christmas period – as 57% have caught someone cheating, a study has found. A poll of 2,000 adults revealed that board games are a Christmas family tradition for 57%, with an average of four games being played over the festive season.
