There are many games that require and/or encourage the use of various language skills. 
    Here are a few of my favorites:
    20 Questions       Apples to Apple      Boulderdash     Scattergories     Taboo     Tri Bond     Mad Libs 
                                  Headbandz        In a Pickle           Bubble Talk      Man Bites Dog     Moods 
    I hope you have fun playing these games with your friends and family!
