Our Favorite Family Games
As the temps drop, my crew start eyeing the game cabinet after dinner. And being the cool mom that I am, I try to keep it stocked with new and exciting games that everyone can enjoy. We have been enjoying a fresh batch of games and think that your crew would also enjoy them.
This giveaway for a family game night pack is sponsored by Chickapig, Educational Insights, and University Games and hosted by Mom Does Reviews.
About the Family Game Night Pack Sponsors:
An exciting, fun-filled strategic board game where chicken–pig hybrids attempt to reach their goals while dodging opponents, hay bales, and an ever-menacing pooping cow.
We’re play enthusiasts. We aim to create experiences filled with sheer joy and uncontrollable laughter. We are champions of curiosity and those “eureka” moments of discovery. In addition to inspiring creativity, imagination, good sportsmanship, and out-of-the-box learning, our inventive line of kid-powered toys and engaging games are packed full of fun, designed to delight, and are certain to satisfy kids’ natural curiosity.
University Games was founded by Bob Moog and Cris Lehman. Bob and Cris always loved playing games with their families, and grew up thinking that fun and learning were a part of everyday life. As adults, they recognized a developing niche in social interaction and learning games for adults and children, and that is how University Games began on April 1, 1985. The company philosophy has always been to offer games that encourage social interaction and imagination through gameplay, with learning sprinkled in to season the game.
About the Games in the Game Pack:
- Chickapig has you racing across the board to reach your goal, but in the meantime you have to avoid the other players, bales of hay, and a pooping cow. Yes, you read that right! It’s easy to pick up but also requires some strategy and to be able to think a few moves ahead like chess. What is a chickapig? It’s a hybrid farm animal made of half of a pig and half of a chicken. And in this game, you are herding a flock of chickapigs around the board.
- Tumball is great for ages as young as 5 where you are stacking white beads on top of the hanging balls. You must be careful with each turn you take, because if the hung balls start to separate and open, then the white beads will tumble and you have to pick them up. The player is the first one without any white beads left over. I love that the instructions aren’t difficult and anyone can just sit down and play. While this is mainly for the young ones at home, I have caught my older kids or other adults playing it and having just as much fun!
- I SPY Dig In is another great game that starts at the age of 5. There’s a bucket in the middle with various objects; every player is given a card with 6 objects and you have to “dig in” the bucket to find each one while the timer is running. The first player to get all 6 of their items before time runs out is the winner! The kids don’t have to be advanced readers since the cards are visual pictures for them to match the items to. Color does matter, not just the right object! Again, it’s a quick and fun game anyone can sit down and pick up without a bunch of confusing rules to explain first.
- Kanoodle Head-to-Head Oh my!! It’s great for kids or adults, and we’ve even played it in teams before. Each player has a puzzle to complete with the color pieces, then they must also fit the remaining pieces onto the board around the puzzle ones. The first player then pushes the button to upturn the other players board! And these aren’t just single pieces either, they are shaped together to be three or four in a row, or shaped like a L. There’s no timer, you just have to be faster than the other person. First player to wins 5 puzzles wins the game. There’s no reading involved, but definitely uses your spatial reasoning and logic skills! And with over 80 puzzles, you can keep playing over and over without learning the patterns.
