2016

Looking for an escape from reality?  It’s fun to play family games or even check out for a bit and play video games.  Here are some great choices for those of you who like to play games.

ekExploding Kittens is the latest rage in card games and we can see why.  This off the wall idea is a really family friendly game that will have everyone rolling.  I mean if you love cats and goats, why not try it out and try to be the last man standing?  Make sure you pick up the regular edition for the whole family, the NSFW one is just for the adults!

Now you know I can’t have a holiday gift guide and NOT include something Harry Potter related.  Check out the classic CLUE game, but Harry Potter style from USAopoly. Clue has always been one of my favorite games, but it’s made so much better when it is set at Hogwarts and you could be Harry , Ron, Hermione or other favorite characters trying to solve a mystery and find magic spells, all the while playing with a moving board that can reveal secret passages!  A great family game to pick up this holiday season!

Once the kids go to bed, break out the latest version of a favorite party game: Telestrations After Dark.  This is the adult version of the hilarious party game that so many have grown to love.  It is completely inappropriate and funny and will have you in stitches!  Great for a night in with a bunch of friends!

 

 

We also have some suggestions for new releases if gaming in the virtual world is your cup of tea.

Just Dance 2017 is a blast and so much easier for more people to join in, since they can sync up their smartphones and join the dance party!  Loaded with great songs, both old and new, that will keep your heart rate up, grab some friends and dance the night away!  I love Don’t Stop Me Now from Queen, which is always a great tune to get your blood pumping. Just Dance is one of my very favorite games to play with my kids, especially in the cold winter months when it is so nasty to go outside.  We can stay active and laughing indoors, spending family time together.  Can’t recommend Just Dance games enough!
