Game night can be an absolute blast in any home. We enjoy playing together as a family (my son isn’t quite old enough to fully participate, but he does love watching) as well as when having guests over. It’s a great social activity that is easy on the budget and fun for all.
One of my favorites as a child (and a grown up child) is Candy Land by Hasbro! I have fond memories of playing this for hours with my brothers because to the bright colors, candy theme, and zany characters. That’s why I was so excited to see that they have updated this timeless board game with a 3D version! My son is playing with the cute pieces as I type this and I look forward to soon being able to teach him how to fully play this wonderful game. As for now, I use the candy land road pieces to teach him colors!
For the grownups and older children, I recommend Electronic Catchphrase (also from Hasbro). This one is great for get-togethers at your home or on the go. It’s all there in the battery powered hand held device. It keeps score automatically and includes over a thousand phrases.
Board games are much more interactive than a movie or videogames and something the whole family can enjoy. I love these two titles, but visit Hasbro’s website for a whole slew of other great options!
This review is based strictly my opinion. Others may have a different opinion or experience with the product listed above. Hasbro provided the products, and I provided my honest opinion. No other type compensation was received for this review.
