Entertaining Family And Friends With Board Games

My husband and I love board games. We love two player games for when it’s just the two of us, but we also love playing board games with our family and friends. Endless Games offers a variety of games that are suitable for all ages. They are unique board games that offer a great balance of fun and education. Playing board games with your family can be a very constructive way to spend your time. If you set up a weekly “game night” it will give your kids something to look forward to and it is a great way to spend quality time with your kids. Board games are beneficial for children in helping them understand strategy, taking turns and how to be a team player. Here are some ideas from Endless Games for entertaining family and friends with board games.

For the Kids

Cupcake Race is a great game to get your little ones involved in game night. For ages 4 and up, Cupcake Race takes you through the process of baking a cupcake. With cute colorful game pieces, as you progress in the game you “Mix it, Bake it, Frost it, Top it!” Completing a cute cupcake in the end. Kids won’t even be concerned about who is winning because each of them will get to make their own cupcake throughout the game and that’s more fun for the little ones!

ZOOPANIC is great for ages 3 and up. Helps kids learn their animals as they help the animals in the zoo get back into their cages. Your kids will love looking at the pictures of the animals. 2 or more players.

A BEE C Match Game is a letter matching card game for all ages. You don’t need to know how to spell to play this card game. You just have to match letter to letter and collect 7 cards to win. This is a great game for on the go, taking it to a friends house or to the grandparents house. Ages 5 and up, for 2 players.

For the Teens

Anger Management is for ages 14 and up. This game is a silly way of turning your anger around. You get to laugh about all the things that make you angry. You’ll realize that getting upset is not worth it in the end. Each player has to answer questions like, “which player is most likely to complain about a minor injury?” They write down either their own name or another players name. Depending on how many times you are “picked on” you move your Rage-O-Meter. Who ever goes from “Perfectly Calm” to “Absolutely Steamed” is the winner.

Name 5 is Endless Games best seller. In Name 5 you have 30 seconds to name 5 of something. For example, you would be asked to name 5 orange fruits. This game is meant to be played in teams. The first team to reach the end of the board wins! Ages 12 and up.

For large Groups

Family Feud I don’t think this game needs much of a description. It is a perfect game for a family game night, especially on holidays when everyone is gathered together. Your family and friends will enjoy answering the survey questions from the popular game show.

The Game of Scruples is a new game from Endless Game. Look out for it on their website. This is fun for an adult party. You are asked questions that you’ll have to think twice about answering honestly.

For the Newlyweds

The Newlywed Game is a classic game that is entertaining for couples. Show off how much you really know about your significant other and laugh at the things you don’t know! It’s still fun even if you aren’t a newlywed. There is always something new to learn about your spouse. Being reminded of things about your spouse can reignite your love as well. 18 and up for 1-4 players.

Even if you have a set of games your family loves, adding a few new board games is always a good idea to keep everyone engaged and interested! So as you plan your game night, checkout Endless Games for some endless family fun!
