Mario & Sonic at the London 2012 Olympics for Wii

Last night was family game night for our family.  It’s a frugal way to spend time as a family and have fun.

We have family game night a lot, and sitting at a table playing board games is always fun.  But, being active is so much  more fun! We love challenging each other in games where we can jump around and look a little silly.  Plus, there’s something about being active that makes you even more motivated and gets the game even crazier.  And, it tends to get you hyped up enough to add some well-meaning smack talk, which in our family results in laughter.

I’ve always been a Nintendo fan and love the kid-friendly games that don’t involve severed body parts, blood, and other unmentionables found in so many video games.  Mario and Sonic at the London 2012 Olympic Games is definitely one of those!  That was our game of choice last night.

If you need a last-minute gift idea, we love this game.  It’s one of this year’s hottest games and Sam’s Club has Mario and Sonic at the London 2012 Olympic Games in stock in store and ready for pick up for your Nintendo Wii.
