Family Games Appropriate for the Kids—and Actually Fun for the Adults!
Who said game night had to be a snoozefest?
After 17 repeat viewings of Frozen, are you ready to let it (i.e. your sanity) go? A clever age-bridging game could be just what you and the kiddos need to put some quality back into quality time.
Some games with a player limit offer extension sets, so you can add a participant or two. Perfect for when you’re hosting a bigger group, like your friends and their kids.
If you find a game you really like and want to play it without the children, Exploding Kittens and others have R-rated versions for when the little ones are in bed. Or, in reverse, the OG saucy game, Cards Against Humanity, offers a family version.
The great thing about cards, as opposed to board games, is that you can stop playing at any time. And for games like Kids Against Maturity or Cards Against Humanity: Family Version, parents can censor anything that’s still a little too cheeky for their liking. (For example, if you’re not particularly down with fart jokes, you’ll probably want to pull some cards from the deck.)
