“Modern Family” Game a winning gift for TV fans

Need a gift for that TV fan on your list? Try the Modern Family board game from Pressman Toy. Based on the hit ABC sitcom, the Modern Family Game is suitable for ages 10 and up and can be played with two or more players.

Players move their “families” — Pritchett, Dunphy or Pritchett Tucker — around the board. Players collect tokens along the way for things like correctly answering questions about the show, correctly guessing a charade, or discussing an interview topic.  The interview cards include questions like “Is it more important to listen or to offer good advice?” and “Is it OK for a parent to read their kid’s journal?” (You might learn a few new things about your friends.) Once a player has their scorecard filled with tokens, they have to get back home to win the game.

There seem to be enough ways to be at least slightly competitive in the game if you’re not very (or at all) familiar with the show. Though with the popularity of the series, it shouldn’t be hard to find someone to play with. And like the Modern Family characters who find themselves in awkward, uncomfortable and funny situations, the players will have plenty of opportunities to embarrass themselves, all in the name of good clean fun.
