I hate Candyland. It is a never ending preschool game but now I don't think I will ever have to play again and I am an ecstatic. No more endless reshufflings of the deck as I try in vain to get all the dreaded picture cards to the bottom of the deck. It never works because someone always pulls the damned lollipops. So then I try stealing the cards out of the deck and the kids get suspicious. (Don't judge me.)
Enter Jenga. I LOVE JENGA! It has a start, a finish, and my kids can all play it. They think setting it up is fun and they don't cry when they lose because it makes a big loud noise.
I love my husband for suggesting it as a Christmas gift and for freeing me from candyland.
