5 Games to Play at Your Next Family Get-together

Jason Rader

The holiday season if fast approaching that means many family get-togethers with parents, grandparents, siblings, cousins…..the list goes on. Sometimes there can be some down time and we thought we would put together a list of fun family board games!

1.    Bananagrams Anagram Game

This game is an all-time favorite that can be enjoyed by anyone. We chose this because this game needs no pencil, paper, or board. Fast and fun. Players race against each other to build crossword grids and use all their letter tiles first.

2.    Scattergories Board Game

This has become a family favorite over the years. You have one minute to write as many words as you possibly can. Sounds easy, but each word has to start with the letter you rolled on the die and fit into one of the categories listed. Your letter is "S" and your categories are: desserts, car parts, athletes and articles of clothing.

3.    Time’s Up!

This new and popular game will be fun for the whole family – even grandma. The Time's Up Deluxe game is a fun party game where each team has to identify famous individuals based on the clues given.

4.    Pictionary Board Game

This one is great for Adults and the younger ones. It comes with 2 levels of clues so that everyone can participate and enjoy. Pictionary is the game of quick sketches and hilarious guesses.

5.    Apples to Apples – Party Box

Similar to Pictionary, this is a game of comparisons! Like the name of the game, you compare - Apples to Apples! Deal the cards and select the card from your hand that you think is best described by a card played by the judge. Each round is filled with surprising and outrageous comparisons from a wide range of people, places, things and events. Includes over 1,000 cards so it is sure to keep your family busy this holiday season.

Have fun and Happy Holiday’s!
