I have so many fond memories of playing games as a child and then as an adult with my children (both when they were children and as adults).
I remember as a child being taught how to play dominoes by my Grandmother... she also taught me how to play Gin Rummy. Now both of these games require extensive concentration for the scoring mechanisms that go with them... and I learned those too.

But as adults we love Scattegories and new domino game we were introduced to: Chicken Foot.....
I still love a good old fashioned game night.....
