Best Games for Family Game Night

One of the hardest things about getting a game night started up again is picking the right game. If you have been out of the game scene for a while, there are tons of new and exciting games out there, but the classic games still hold a special spot in our hearts. Family game night is one time that the whole family gets together without screens or technology. Here are some of our favorite games to play at game night!

Another fun and silly game for the game! Yeti in my Spaghetti is easy to play and is similar to games you might have played before when you were younger, but with a new twist. You place the noodles across the bowl and then put the Yeti on top. Everyone takes turns removing one noodle at a time, taking care not to let the Yeti fall in. If you make it fall in, you lose!

This game is excellent if you have four or more players. You have to work together with a partner to get around the board. It is a quiz-like game that tests you in different sections so it can challenge both you and your kids. Some parts have you drawing, singing, spelling, or acting out clues. It is an action-packed game that is sure to create fun memories!

Another great game that can challenge your children. It requires them to think critically and use some number skills. It is a game that requires minimal set-up and is reasonably quick, so is perfect for a game night that might need to be shorter than usual or as a good warm-up game.

Scrabble

Most likely better for older children, Scrabble is a classic but is still a favorite. Try to score the most points while laying down words on the board. It is great to get the competitive side of your children and helps to teach vocabulary.

Apples to Apples

Kids will love this game! It is fast-paced and is a great warm-up game if you want one. It is a game of “What am I?” and helps children work on deduction skills and also how to describe things. Another game that incorporates learning seamlessly into fun!
