Family Game Night

Family Game Night

There was a time when people stayed at home and played board games with their family. This photo is from the archives of The Carrom Company that made this game, known as the "Carrom Game Board" or just "Carroms". Many versions of this game were made over the last 100 years in the Ludington, MI, factory, which is still in business.

This is a Model K board made between 1939-1941. A rulebook that came with all the boards was filled with dozens of different games that could be played on both sides of the board.

This photo was used for promotional purposes and I would guess it is from the mid to late 1940s. (My family owns The Carrom Company today.) View full size.

Game nights STILL happen

We still have game nights at our home. As a matter of fact, our boys often REQUEST this and they are both in college!
