Puzzle Games

This is where your old Tetris skill come into play!  I don’t know about you but I was pretty good at leveling up in Tetris and feel it has given me an advantage to some of these games.  To test your building capabilities and how well you can fit things into a small space you’ll love Azul, Get Packing, and Rhino Hero.

Family Puzzle Games

I hope you were able to find a new game to try with the family!  You can find all these games at most major retailers and online at Amazon.

      Skip bo holds so many good memories for me it was the first card game I learned as a kid! I would love to teach my kids it to really great bonding game!

  1. i don’t usually write posts or comments on articles but your blog was so convincing and is written with such diligence i had to praise. great work !

  2. jeannine glen on

    we had two games that we played all the time. first was monopoly and the other one was yatzee. i love game night.

  3. Tracy Taylor on

    Our family loves monopoly, enough that we have at least five different versions of it! I love that it is the first thing my kids pull out when they have friends over.

  4. I’ve always loved Monopoly. The geek in me prefers the Lord of the Rings version over the traditional one, but I’m always up for a game of Monopoly, no matter which version. 🙂

  5. We generally go through phases; right now our favourite is Ticket to Ride. But Monopoly is always at the top of the list.

  6. PayDay! As a child it taught me how to budget my monthly money and pay bills which were great life lessons to learn! And is still a favorite today 🙂

  7. Jenny Wilson on

    Right now my favourite board game is 7 Wonders Duel which I play between myself and my husband. We have a toddler and an infant so we rarely get out alone together but this board game gives a chance to have a little fun when the kids are asleep!

  8. When we have lots of time love a good game of risk. We have a toddler and an infant so we rarely get out alone together but this board game gives a chance to have a little fun when the kids are asleep. My favorite board game is Monopoly. well, just because everyone in the family can play that game.
