The new Facebook page will act as a community where fans can interact, read tips and recommendations and take part in quizzes. Each month the Family Game Night page will highlight new Hasbro games.

According to a 2010 survey, commissioned by Hasbro, eight out of ten Americans said they enjoy playing board games and 39 per cent do so at least once a month.

Ted Riedel, senior director of marketing at Hasbro Games commented: "Today's tech-savvy parents are heading to Facebook to share photos of their family, catch up with friends and relatives, and share their interests.

“Because many families regularly have family game nights at home, Hasbro's Family Game Night Facebook page provides a great resource for families to share their favourite family game night experiences with the larger community, as well as learn about ways that they can make their family game nights an even more exciting occasion."
