Who’s Keeping Score?!
We are a game family. There’s truly nothing better than playing boardgames with your nearest and dearest in your Christmas PJs while the fire is going and the hot cocoa is spiked! Playing games is definitely one of the best ways to make memories AND get the entire family involved.
Below are a few of our favorite games to play with family… so hopefully you can stock up on a few before you head out of town for the holidays!
6 Fun Games To Play This Holiday Season
Giant Playing Cards
Over Thanksgiving weekend I posted an instagram story of our family playing a classic game of spoons with GIANT playing cards and a bunch of wooden spoons from the kitchen. I must have received a 100 DMs asking what we were playing! Honestly, I had to laugh, because it was just spoons… but it was actually a lot more fun with giant playing cards and big spoons. I’d highly recommend getting a deck!
Okay, so this is Ryan and his brothers’ FAVORITE board game. I’ve actually never played because they get so intense when they are together playing that the rest of us kind of just watch from afar. But one of these days I’m going to learn how! And truthfully, I love eating popcorn and watching the boys duke it out over “trading sheep for wheat”! haha!
Puzzles are the most underrated game of them all. I LOVE A PUZZLE. Ryan’s family has a puzzle table that is always out and I think it’s so much fun. Plus, if you are feeling overwhelmed by all the family… the puzzle table is always welcoming. ha! No, but seriously, you haven’t lived until you’ve stayed up until 3 a.m. finishing up a puzzle!
