    I have read a few times about family game nights. I love family game nights. My son and I love playing games, however my husband does not. Anyway I thought I would start a forum to see what others do for family game nights? What games do you and your family like to play or what other ideas do you do for family time?

    Apples to Apples has a kids version that is really fun. My family loves Uno, too.

    • #137570

    The children in my home range from 3 to 16 years old. Any games that all ages could play?

  • #21009

    I have a 7 and 11 year old. Their cousins introduced them to the domino game Mexican Train and they love it.

  • #21297

    I’m reading a lot of fun games here.
    I would say a game for 3 to 16 year olds may be Uno Moo game. My sister just got it for my niece who is three and she loves it. Instead of cards the pieces are in a barn and they are a round ball, and the game still uses colors but on the balls are different animal faces, so you can either match color or animal. It is a cute, fast game.
    My family and I just started Boom Blast Stix. It is like Jenga in which you are stacking the piece, however if you put a piece on wrong or it gets too heavy in a certain spots the piece jump off the platform around the room. It is a fun game, and is a pretty quick games. We like doing a lot of card games too. Bicycle Cards has an app that will give directions to new games. Are current favorite is Palace.
    Thanks for all who is sharing and will share. Its fun finding out different games we can do with our families!

  • #132732

    We use to get a brown lunch bag and fill it full of different kinds of little candies. Then we would play Chutes and Ladders,Candy Land, Bingo or Charades and the winner would get to pick two pieces of candy from the bag that way it encouraged everyone to play.

    We LOVE family game night but we tend to get a bit too competitive!! Monopoly, parcheesi, yatzee!!! All of our faves!!

  • #133238

    With the kids getting older it’s been more of a challenge to get a family game night in order but there is a local mystery shut-in company. They plan everything and you get locked in until you solve the mystery as a team by finding clues … Fun times I assure you and it’s easy enough for our youngest as well

  • #136588

    May sound crazy , but the simple game of hide and seek, we as adults have a ball watching how the younger ones try to hide , the best one is behind a plant , being they can’t see you they think you can’t see them,they are hilarious. As they get older They get better, the challenge of them finding the perfect hiding spot will help improve their balance, and coordination . but when you get down to it it is funny to see and play in. But don’t forget to set some ground rules on where or how they could hide.

  • #136595

    Our family loves hoot hoot owl, don’t wake up daddy, zingo, and recently the Shopkins and lol games

  • #136690

    These sound amazing.

  • #136723

    We play Mariokart, MarioParty, Skipbo, Uno, Ticket to Ride, Life, Monopoly, matching games, and Candyland. I have a 5 year and 10 year old, so we mix up the games to ensure everyone can play games that are on their level. We usually have music going in the background, and have snacks as well. It’s one of our favorite weekly activities as a family.

  • #136777

    My family and I like to play card games. We play memory with the younger ones, go fish, old maid, rummy, and uno. With the older ones we have played hungry hippo, battleship, connect 4, and we play some Xbox one games with them. They love it when we get involved with that.

  • #140288

    I have been wanting to start a family game night for a long time. I am just stuck on what exactly to do. I have a 11 year old son, 9 year old daughter, 2 year old son and a 10 month old son, so I cant seem to figure out something where they will not argue or complain over the game. (being to babyish or to hard for the other, I can figure something out for my younger children to be preoccupied, but with my older ones, it is a struggle.

  • #140562

    try Backgammon , every men love it

  • #140607

    Looks like such a great event!

    We love peaceable kingdom games like Out Foxed and Gamewright games like Feed the Kitty. We are a big gaming family. These games are great for cooperation building games. A great one for teen and adults a like is Escape the board game. It is limited to only 10 min of game play which is measured by a audio track with minimal set up after the first time. There are tons of modifications that can increase the difficulty of the game. (To note we have something like 175 board games, so these are the best non-hasbro game recommendations.)
