My tribe loves playing family games. And now that we are all together at home every day, we look forward to stepping away from the news, the laundry and schoolwork for a bit just to connect and have some fun. If you’re looking for the same for your family, here are a few games to get you started. You’ll be happy to know that all are winners of the National Parenting Product Awards.
For a fun twist on musical chairs, try Butts Up, where you fess up about things you’ve done, stuff you like and things you wish for. For cat lovers, Catventures Game will have you answering questions about cats and acting out the silly things they do.
Your tweens, teens and fans of the classic movie “Jaws” will enjoy its game namesake JAWS, a suspenseful tabletop strategy game. Or, if you want some fairytale magic mixed in with your suspense, take family game night to a new level with Disney Villainous: Wicked to the Core board game, where you get to take on the role of a Disney villain and strive to achieve your own devious objective.
If you love word challenges, Jabuka will have you quickly twisting letters and transforming words. And for those who want to get out of their heads and just dance (with a twist), Mad Moves will have you performing ballet as a T-rex or maybe limbo like a baby.
So, put the dishes away, turn off the computer and the TV, get the games out and have some fun!
