Uno or Crazy 8s
These two games are timeless. They are multi-player card games in which the first player to get rid of all of their cards wins. Players are each dealt seven cards, and take turns taking from the deck. Every family has their own set of rules for playing, but these two games are the best for easing everyone into some fun. If you don't want to buy a deck of cards, you can also play them online or for free on any mobile device in the app store.
Mancala is a two-player game in which the goal is to move as many pebbles as possible from the two rows into your home. The rules of this exciting game explain how you can move and take pebbles. Be strategic to win the game; don't leave your pebbles open to your opponent's sneaky hands!
Put your acting skills to the test and see if your friends and family can guess what you're acting out before time runs out. You can play by downloading a mobile charades game onto a device, buying game cards, or creating your own. To make the game more engaging as everyone plays, invite players to suggest topics and difficulty levels. Even the children will have a good time playing this simple and enjoyable game!
Similar to charades, Taboo is an exciting game where you have to have people guess a word without you saying the word. In this game, teams are split in two, and a player from each team gives clues to their team members so they can guess the word or phrase. But here's the trick, though talking is allowed, certain words are considered "taboo’ and cannot be used to give clues. The rules of the game are simple, but it's harder than it seems!
To play Jenga, you need a sturdy surface. Once you’ve found your base, you organize the blocks. Then each player takes turns removing block pieces from the bottom of the stack and placing them back on top of the stack. Whoever makes the pile crash loses!
