  • Favorite Family Friendly Game?

    I LOVE playing games with the kids, and now that the youngest is 11, we are ready for some different games (no more early childhood types). We play Yahtzee and Uno already, as well as various Sequence games, but do you have any additional ideas? What's your favorite family friendly games? (and I should tell you we have banned Monopoly in our household because we are apparently a cut throat group and this game goes on WAAAAYYYY too long!)

    Mexican Train, a game that you play with Dominos, and Phase 10.

        Set. Well, I love Set but my husband hates it because it 'moves too fast'.

          Scrabble & Monopoly are probably my kids' top 2 to play as a family. We've also started teaching my 9 year old cribbage but the 5 yr old boy is SO not ready for that one! He does like to play scrabble- he needs help sometimes but it's really fun to see him trying to sound out & spell his own words!

            Y'all are amazing! I'm adding these to my Amazon cart now. We are on Spring Break and doing a stay-cation so this is a good time to play games!

                Krista we did all of these when the kids were younger too! And they loved Qwerkle and Sliders too!

                  Like I said Aime, we had to ban Monopoly. It just took too long and they got evil with each other charging higher rates. Most of it was in fun, but not all!

                    Have you tried Monopoly Deal? We haven't played Monopoly for the same reason - it took too darn long - so I LOOOOVE this version. It's a card game, conceptually the same, and takes 15-30 minutes per game. Definitely check it out if you did sorta like Monopoly.
