We have a closet in our house entitled “The Game Closet”. An entire closet dedicated to storing our games and puzzles.
Playing games is a great way to unwind together and connect as a family.
Here are our current favorite board games.
Clue – A classic, I remember playing Clue when I was a child. It is a game that requires a little bit of luck and a little bit of logic to figure out who committed the crime.
Risk – This game has also been around a while. It is my son’s favorite and will definitely keep a family busy for a LONG time! The game board is a map of the world and the object of the game is to take over the world! (evil laugh)
Cranium – Cranium is great because it is like four games in one. As you move around the board, you might get to answer trivia questions, spell words backward, draw a picture with your eyes closed, act out a character, or sculpt something with play-doh. This one usually has us laughing until we cry at some point during the game.
Cranium Cadoo – Similar to Cranium, but on an easier scale for younger players. It includes several different types of activities to keep things exciting.
Settlers of Catan – This one is my favorite as it requires some strategy, but doesn’t take as long to play as Risk. You build settlements and roads using the natural resources collected from your lands.
Uno – Not a board game, but we love playing this fun, easy card game. We have a deck in the camper and another one in the house!
