5 favorites {no. 4} family game night edition

Linking up with Hallie and friends for five favorites on this winter Wednesday!
(Sorry with the alliteration...I couldn't help myself!)

Michael & I love to have game night. Sometimes it's just the two of us, and sometimes we play games with another couple or two. We also love to play games with our families when we visit them.
Today I thought I'd share just a few of our favorites.

{1} cranium
We just love to play Cranium! Whether you have a word worm, creative cat, data head or
star performer card, there is something for everyone in this game.
(If you know how to play this game - the creative cat cards are my favorite and Michael excels in the data head cards. Humdingers are not our strong suit!)

{2} taboo
This is definitely a top favorite game of ours. If you've never played, the object of the game is to get your teammates to guess a particular word without saying any of the five "buzz words" on the card. This game is especially fun to play with people you know well. Then you can be creative and personal when trying to get your team to guess the word.

{3} euchre
I did not grow up playing euchre, but knowing how to play was pretty much a necessity to be a part of Michael's family. They play all. the. time! When I was first learning the game I was still so nervous around his family - it did not help me pick up the rules quickly. But! Now that I know how to play, I must say, this game is a lot of fun.

{4} settlers of catan
This game is on the list for my dear husband, Michael. He just got this game for Christmas, and he was pretty pumped about it. I confess that when he used to play this game with his college roommates, I never even tried playing because it seemed particularly nerdy. However, upon giving it a chance, it's actually a fun game! There's a lot of strategy involved, and games can get long, but it's worth it. (Also, it makes my husband happy. And that makes me happy!)

{5} suspend
We got this Melissa & Doug game for my sister-in-law, Malissa (age 11) for Christmas. When we played it with her over the holidays we had so much fun that we ended up getting one for ourselves with a gift card. It's a balancing game with a Jenga-like energy - fun for all ages!

Have you played any of these before? What are your favorite games? I'd love to hear!

  1. I have tried to play euchre so many times... I just don't get it. Settlers of Catan and Taboo, however. Favorites. :)
