Welcome to Best Family Games!
Families have been playing games since the dawn of time. It's a great way to bring the family closer together, educate kids and give them a competitive spirit. Let's not forget that it can also be a lot of fun!
If you're here to get some ideas for your next family game night, or even if it's just for an upcoming party or family gathering, we'll do our best to help you out. This is a subject that we really love!
Setting up a Family Game Night
By far, one of the most asked questions we get is, "How do we set up a Family Game night at our house?"
While there's not a single, correct answer; there are a few tips that we can give you if that's something you want to do.
1. Set up a scheduled time and date to do your family games. For example say you decide you are going to have a game night every Monday at 6:00. Announce it over dinner a few days in advance and then keep reminding everyone on the preceding days. Get some dialogue going about what game everyone wants to play. Make it interactive!
2. Find some games to play! If you already have some old games stanched away in the closet, this is a great place to start. If you don’t, never fear! That's what best family games is here for! For less than the price of taking the family to a movie, you can buy a game that will continue to entertain for months, if not years! We've made it our mission to talk about the best family games on this site.
3. Set someone in charge. I recommend you rotate this responsibility to give everyone a try. It not only fosters discipline and responsibility, but also lets everyone feel in control of the family game night and gets them invested. If they know they're responsible for picking out the game, getting the table ready and cleaning up, they'll take the occasion more seriously.
4. Be sure to announce the family game night before it actually begins! If you are planning to have a game night at 8:00, don’t go into your kid’s room at 7:59, turn off their computer, and drag them out. Give them early warning so they can finish whatever it is they are doing and then come.
Keep in mind that the game you play doesn’t matter as much as the fact that you are all getting together and bonding as a family. You can always play the classic games like monopoly and clue, or you can play some lesser known games like Settlers of Catan and the Catch Phrase game.
Of course you want everyone to enjoy the game and that's where we come in. We'll do our best to show you the best family games for your next family game night! So what are you waiting for? Let's get started!
