Game Night Fun!

The weekend is here and we are ready for it! Nothing like rounding up friends and family for some food and fun! I never tire of playing games and with the variety of available games out there you shouldn’t either. I’ve even found out that there has been a new spin put on some old classics.

Uno now has blank customizable cards (where you write in what you want the player after you to do) and a card that once played causes you to swap hands with another player. (I was not ready to trade in my three cards for fourteen but it happened lol)

I hadn’t played the board game Sorry in eons and after getting a new game around the holidays we noticed that there are some changes to this game as well. You no longer need to pull a 1 or a 2 to get out of start, the slide areas on the board are now color coded with three colors each so you can only slide if your token color is one of the three on the slide bar and you now have three tokens of each color instead of four.

In my world classic playing cards are a must. Gin, rummy, hearts, spades and more can all be played using a regular deck of playing cards. So if having a large array of games sitting around isn’t your thing you can still have quite the variety of games at your fingertips as long as you have cards on hand

When it comes to snacks there isn’t much that my crew won’t eat but Lays Classic Potato Chips are always a crowd pleaser. Plain, dipped, partially crushed lol it doesn’t matter we love these things. Our current thirst quenching favorite would be the flavored waters by Nestle! With orange, grape, lemon, wild berry and more there is definitely something for everyone with this brand.

We haven’t cracked into the Zombie Opoly yet so that one is first in line for this weekend. What games do you all like to play? Have you noticed any changes with old favorites?

  1. Game nights are great and something we do quite regularly as a family. Sushi Go and Exploding Kittens are both proving quite popular at the moment, although the boys recently found my (very old) copy of the Judge Dredd board game and a fantastic time was had by all.

    I have to admit that I do like the look of Zombie Opoly.


  2. There are lots of board games we love to play in our school time but now we don’t 😦 play any. But this game Sorry looks quiet interesting I would love to play this game.

  3. My son is completely obsessed with connect 4 and sorry. He’s still little but gets super competitive. We need to do a family game night.

  4. Ahhhh, game night. Now that it’s just two of us, and one of us is a teen, we haven’t done game night in forever! The changes to Uno sound really intriguing. My favorite, besides cards, has always been Monopoly though.
