Family Game Night has caught a lot of flack for being a lame way to force a connection with your family. We’re really sorry to hear that because we love a Family Game Night! So many hilarious inside jokes, memories, and friendly competitions have come out of game nights, we can’t imagine not having it. The best is when you can expand your game night to include other families and it gets to be a really wild time. Let yourselves go, lean into the rules of the game, and have fun.

What do you do at family game night?

Well, it’s pretty simple. You play a game! We usually give each family member a turn to pick the game so everyone feels like the leader at some point. Introducing someone to a fun game can be a really fun but kind of nerve-wracking experience. Be sure to fully embrace the game and its rules and not make someone feel silly or bad for picking it.
