Game Night Fun!

Finding it hard to entertain yourself during the winter? Yeah, I think we’ve all been there. If you’re an outdoor family like we are, the winter months can be boring and sometimes lead to expensive outings. One of our favorite things to do is GAME NIGHT!

Invite some friends over, make some fun finger food and enjoy these games.

8+ People

Taboo

(4+ Players)

It may sounds like a taboo game to play with lots of people, but this game gets your competitive nature flourishing and a some good laughs in. The object of the game is to get your teammate(s) to say the word without using 5 commonly used words to describe it. The team that has the most points at the end of the game wins!

Example:

Word: House

Cannot Say: Live, Residence, Address, Home, Family



Apples to Apples

(4-8 Players)

In our group you can follow the rules or make up your own. The object of the game is getting the judge to choose your card (we base it on what answer made us laugh the hardest). Whoever gets the most green cards wins! 



6 Players

Risk

(2-6 Players)

Yup. This game made the cut. I used to think it was a game for nerds but in reality it’s quite fun. You should have at least one experienced player at the table to explain the rules. I like to describe it as a mix between Monopoly, Catan, and Freeze Tag. Not a game for those looking for something quick but definitely something that will make you feel accomplished in the end.

The object of the game is to take have the strongest army and concur the most continents.

Deer in the Headlights

(2+ Players)

This game is a great game to play where you can chat with your comrades. Make sure you read the rules carefully and don’t roll more than 1 deer in the headlights! The object of the game is to get rid of your cards first. Those remaining with cards will have them count against you in points. The one with the lowest points wins.

Phase 10

(2-6 Players)

Bring out that card game from your childhood and give it life again. Race your competitors to completion of all 10 phases first. You’d be surprised just how much fun you can have playing this game with a good beer in hand.

4 Players

Catan

(2-4 Players [6 with the expansion pack])

Talk about obsession! Takes one game to get the hang of it, but once you do you’ll want to play it every time you and your friends are together. The object of the game is to get to 10 points first. Gaining resources and building the longest road is key – but watch out when the number 7 is rolled, you could lose more than you bargained for.

I’d love to know what games you play for game night!
