Family Game Night

We can only spend so much time looking at our phones, scrolling Facebook and Instagram for the 100th time only to see the same pictures and videos we did 20 minutes ago. We should spend this time distancing ourselves social media and spending more time connecting with the people we are face to face with.

There’s nothing like a good old fashioned bored game to get the family feeling alive again! I bet you forgot about all those games tucked away in a closet somewhere… now is the time to dust them off and start some friendly competition with your quarantine buddies!

  1. Spoons 
    A fan favorite, and the best part is that you don’t need anything fancy. Just enough spoons for everyone playing and a deck of cards! For the official rules we recommend this video!
  2. UNO 
    UNO is another family classic. Don’t underestimate the power of the game… this will bring out the competitive side in every member of the group.
  3. Scrabble 
    Just like the app words with friends… but face to face and just overall better!
  4. Puzzles
    For those of us that may be alone during these times or just don’t like card/ board games puzzles are perfect. They are a perfect way to unwind and keep out minds focused on something other than the media.
  5. Mancala
    The perfect game for a pair of two! Cozy up on the couch after a long day of working from home, grab a glass of wine and unwind with a mellow game of marbles.
