Whether you’re a chess champ or the King of Clue a Family Game Night is a fun-filled way to spend quality time with your parents and sibling and also spark a little friendly competition between you and the people you love the most. Find out how to host a family game night!

Tell Me When and Where

Before you face off against your toughest and closest competitors, make sure you pick a night with the best turn out. It can be hard between work and hobbies for family to find time for each other sometimes, but if everyone is on "board" they’ll find a way to bend their schedule or make time to be included.

Invite Away

When planning a game night don’t forget to invite your grandma, your cousins, anyone who might be interested. The best game nights are when everyone is into it! Even if it’s a family game night you can include anyone you like, for example neighbours, family friends and BFFs.

“Bored” Vs. Board Games

We all have our favorites when it comes to board games, but remember, your fave might not be the same as someone else’s, especially if you happen to be a superstar at it! Make sure it’s fair by picking games everyone can enjoy and vetoing those that maybe only one person likes. And always make sure you have more than one, if your first game turns out to be a bust it’s great to have a back up!

We Suggest...

  • Apples to Apples
  • Balderdash
  • Clue
  • Catch Phrase
  • Monopoly
  • Scattegories
  • Cranium
  • Pictionary

Tips and Tricks

You’re set and ready to go, but there are still a couple of things you can do to ensure that everyone feels like a winner at family game night! Help your parents whip up some snacks so you can all munch and crunch during the games.

Also, everyone likes to be on top, but it’s a good idea to not take the games too seriously. A little competition is healthy, but family game night is all about having fun with loved ones! If you have a younger sibling struggling to keep up, try teaming up with them or (even if it’s not fair) letting them win a round.

If you want to truly make it a “family” game night create your own trivia game by using knowledge about your family to quiz to each other!
