Does anyone else look forward to that slow moment after the main festivities have taken place during holiday gatherings when you can grab a game and make fun memories? With Thanksgiving just around the corner, be sure to have a few of these up your sleeve. Tried and true along with kid-tested, here are the winners from a family and friends poll I conducted.
Some of these board games are my favorites too. Anyone think a Clue-themed party in full costume sounds exciting? The middle one is “To Bethlehem” a wholesome, historical and little bit of educational fun too.
From trivia to all-out hilarity, most of these can be enjoyed by young and old alike.
I have many fond memories of Uno and SkipBo in the dining room and on my parent’s bedroom floor (I think we played back there waiting for our Nintendo turn on their TV). Later, during band years, I got hooked on Spades (check out the rules here). If you’ve got some numbers at a family gathering, you can have a whole Spades tournament. Lots of fun!
Check out these easy to tote with you games for a quick party pick up while visiting family for the holidays.
Let me know, do you have any that your family turns to year after year? I’m just starting my own game collection and would love some that stand the test of time.
