My kids are finally to the age where family game night means more than Candy Land and Chutes and Ladders. But it’s been a bit of a challenge to find fun games that don’t bore mom and dad to death. I headed to Amazon to find 20 fun family board games to help inspire all of us to play more games. We own some of these and others I just think look great.
1. Beat The Parents Board Game: Kids vs. Parents?? I can’t think of a kid who wouldn’t love the chance to take on mom and dad!
2. Pictopia-Family Trivia Game: Disney Edition: I love anything with trivia and add in Disney and it looks like a great family board game.
3. Reverse Charades: This fun game promotes creativity and gets more people in on the action!
4. Brain Quest Smart Game: Kids answer age appropriate questions in a race to spell SMART – Science, Math, Art, Reading and The World! This one is a little more educational.
5. Jenga Classic Game: My daughter just got this for her birthday in July and it’s a ball! It’s inexpensive to buy and everyone can play it making it a great game if you have many ages of kids in your family.
6. Educational Bugs and Insects Board Game – Bugs N’ Slugs – Learn About All That Creeps and Crawls: Learn all about creepy crawls with this fun educational game.
7. Spin Master Games Disney Hedbanz Board Game: We have a different version of this game and my kids CHEAT like crazy when we play! But I laugh so hard because they are just so funny when they do it. One of the best family board games we own!
8. Ravensburger Enchanted Forest – Family Game: I bought this game a few years ago for my then 6 year old and it was a bit over her head. But she’s grown in to it and now it’s a family favorite. This is perfect for a princess loving girl!
9. Spin Master Games – Moustache Smash: We don’t own this one buy my kids are begging for it! I have to admit it does look like a little mindless fun that will guarantee some laughter.
10. Disney Pictionary Game: Not much I can say about how awesome this game looks!
11. Disney Fibber: My kids love a game with glasses and this one looks super cute and fun!
12. Frozen Olaf’s in Trouble Game: Another Frozen spin on a classic – Trouble! My kids call it “Double Trouble” and have been playing this one on their own for years.
13. Spin Master Games – Shark Mania Board Game: For families who love Shark Week! Sharks, pirates and treasure make this fast paced skill game fun to play.
14. Spin Master Games – Boom Boom Balloon Board Game: Stick pokey things in to a balloon without popping it – sounds right up my son’s alley!
15. Clue The Classic Edition: Clue is not like it used to be! It’s amazing how the “classics” have changed – even when they say it’s classic. This is still a family favorite, but I think it’s best for 8 and older.
16. Monopoly Junior Game Frozen Edition: Any of the Monopoly Junior games are great for a family game night! Of course, Frozen is super popular right now but we also have the standard edition and love it.
17. 5 Second Rule – Just Spit it Out!: This one looks like it would be hilarious to play as you have 5 seconds to to name topics that fit in your category.
18. Game of Life: An updated version of the classic game that’s always a hoot for family game night.
19. Tall-Stacker Mighty Monkey Pegs and Pegboard Set: This game teaches colors, spatial recognition and develops fine motor skills – all while having a ball! I think the whole family would love this.
20. World of Disney Eye Found It Board Game: Seriously – a 6 foot game board!! How can that not be fun?!
21. Sushi Go: This is the newest addition to our game collection and we love it! Even our 7 year old son can play (and win!). It’s a pass and go card game that’s easy to take on the road, too.
