Game On

Our crew is easily amused, so laughter rings throughout most of our family time together.

Last night was no different as we sat down with snacks (aka: junk. food.) and two of our favorite games – Great Dalmuti and Apples to Apples.

*note: if your family likes card games, I *highly* recommend Great Dalmuti. It’s easy to learn and even young kids can learn the strategy quickly. The cards are also beautiful and full of character.

Our family also loves games like Pass the Pigs (who doesn’t love throwing tiny pig dice around?), Phase 10 (another great card game, though I admit it can take a long time to play), and Farkle (yay dice!), and love discovering new games like the ones we played with family and friends over the Winter break – Set (will probably be our next game purchase!), Spot It (VERY fast-paced, and fun), and Sort It Out (cool trivia game – you will learn something!).

Tell me: Does your family have Game Nights? What do you love to play together?

    I got Spot It in a white elephant gift exchange this year, and we just played it with friends on New Year’s Eve. I loved all the different ways to play. Reading the directions sounds totally boring, but it was fun and fast.

    • I don’t know about the group you played with, but when we played Spot It, our group got *really* loud! 🙂 It was definitely fast, and a little chaotic, with some yelling (and lots of laughing) going on.
