Family Game Night can be such fun! We’ve got some games that will definitely become some of your new family favorites!
Memories of family game nights are very close to my heart and no doubt close to many of yours as well! They bring so much laughter, love and -we’ll call them- debates! My husband has many stories similar to my own, family game nights and family game…. debates…. Haha. They’ve definitely fostered some healthy competitiveness! This comes out during game play, as well as in the workforce. That has proven itself quite beneficial career wise!
New & Fabulous Game Night Games!
In this Zoo, there is a love for crossword and word search puzzles, so the natural first game choice was Wordsearch! We had a lot of fun playing and I love that the new puzzles can be stored underneath the cover so they are stored neatly! With 16 different puzzles and up to 4 players, the game can be played in the game night rotation for quite sometime without players being able to start memorizing location. Even if there’s a player who is really good at remembering, finding a word that crosses theirs means you get to take the word they found! I am hoping that they eventually come out with new packs for it but it’s going to be quite some time before we will want new puzzles. This game is great for both puzzle lovers and competitive family fun!
The next game we played, ages 13 +, is Stuff Happens. This one is a hilarious way of competitively rating bad day crap. Great for those who love the one up game, i,e., “today sucked, I stepped in a puddle and ruined my new slacks walking into the office”…. “that does suck, I got a flat tire and tripped on the sidewalk, my knee is bruised and swollen….” Ah, gotta love the one up people! haha. Don’t worry though, you can’t win the game on sheer misery, you have to rate the cards on the misery scale provided correctly to win. I’m thinking a game where one has to tell the story of how the crazy thing happened before it’s rated is in order! This one is for 2+ players and comes with 200 cards, so I’d say it could house games of a ton of people! Easily good for 10 people, I wish we’d had this when we worked at the Children’s Home! Our girls would have loved this!
Last but certainly not, are the Spicy Games. Oh, how I love these! Not only are they super cute, but they are great quick games for picnics or vacations! They are the perfect size to stick in your purse so you’ll have them when you need to kill time! Say, a layover or camping trip? Each of the games are essentially dice games but with a spin on them to spice them up! I really couldn’t pick a favorite, so you’ll have to pick on your own. They don’t require a ton of space to play and you can play pretty much anywhere! A fantastic coffee table game anyone can play and find room to store without problem!
