We just started something new in our family.
Each week our family participates in our own "Family Game Night".
And now was a great time to begin something like this especially in the shape that the economy is in. Save money by staying in and enjoying quality time with the family.
It's nice to shut down the computer and turn off the tv at least one night each week. I'll admit, I have been enjoying myself and feel like a kid when the game is over!
Do you have Family Game Night at your house?
If not then I highly encourage you to start this tradition.
Hasbro has some great ideas and tips for hosting your own family game night.
Here's how we have been doing ours.
The day before the event we put every one's name on a piece of paper, fold it up and place it in a bowl. One person then draws from the bowl. The name that gets chosen gets to pick out the game for game night.
This ensures that there is no fighting!
*Of course, you have to make sure that the games are age appropriate.
Some of our favorites are:
*Memory has always been a classic and when you add Spongebob and all of his friends and it's definitely a party!
SpongeBob SquarePants Edition is just like the classic four-in-a row game with a Bikini Bottom twist. Stack the yellow SpongeBob SquarePants on top of the pink Patrick checkers upwards, sideways or diagonally and be the first to yell CONNECT 4! But watch out, your opponent can block out holes or an entire column using the SpongeBob blocker
We actually played Pictureka for the very first time this past week and it was a HUGE hit! I must say that I have gotten quiet competitive at this game.
The game consists of game board tiles in which you have to place them together on the table. Players then take turns rolling the dice, selecting mission cards and trying to find objects fast or first. Three different card decks keep the game exciting – players either have to find a matching image or objects that fall into a category like “things that can fly”. At times the game board may even rotate or change sides. This is a game of finders keepers and you must do it FAST FAST!!
Be on the lookout for the special EASTER edition of Pictureka. It's the perfect gift to go inside of any Easter basket.
All games mentioned are under $20, with the exception of Pictureka! (it is $22.99)
So as you can see....
With Hasbro games, You do not have to break the bank to have a good time!
Come back next week as I will be sharing some more game tips and great game ideas.
*There will also be a giveaway!!
