Chelsea Clinton reveals details of family game night: "My mother is very good in Scrabble...in Boggle, my father is probably better"

Coming up this evening at 9, Piers Morgan welcomes Chelsea Clinton for an honest and entertaining series of interviews that touch upon everything from politics and foreign affairs to her family's feisty game nights.

"We generally are a card playing family," says the women who spent the breadth of her teenage years living in the White House. "We play Pinochle, Spades, Hearts, all the variants of Rummy."

Admitting that individually, Chelsea and both her parents – former President Bill Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton – are all "deeply competitive," the 33-year-old notes that the Clinton competitions yield results that are of "pretty equal distribution," with each of the former first family winning roughly 33 percent of the card games played. However, when the genre switches, each Clinton has their own strength:

"My mother is very good in Scrabble," she tells Morgan. "In Boggle, my father is probably better."

In typical fashion, the host presses for more:

"Your dad is the best Boggler in the Clinton family," he asks, seeking supreme clarification.

Chelsea humors him:

"Probably the best Boggler," she reveals. "My mom is probably the best Scrabbler."

As for the woman who studied at both Oxford University and Stanford University?

"I do really well in the traditional board games: Backgammon, Checkers."

On the edge of his seat with every intimate detail, the "Piers Morgan Live" hosts remains fascinated:

"Interesting. I could talk about this for hours," he declares.

Watch the above clip for more of specifics from the Clinton family game nights, and for the entire interview with Chelsea Clinton, watch CNN at 9.
