My family discovered this one about ten years ago and we’ve been playing it ever since. Like scrabble without the board-it’s quick, easy to learn and fun to play for an impromptu family game night.

Two to six people can play this creative-thinking game, also mentioned numerous times by our readers as a great family game.
One of my personal favorites. This game can be played with up to ten people and as few as four. It’s just fun and can be played in 30 minutes when you only have time for a quick family game night.
Trivia game for ages 12 and up. It’s you against a box of rocks. Let’s see how that goes.
This is a card game that my teen and his friends will play for hours. Think: old school “Dungeons and Dragons” without the dice and much more hip.
Let’s face it: we all love Monopoly but no one has time for the board game version because it’s endless. Monopoly Deal is the perfect way to play Monopoly: it’s a fast paced card game version. But don’t worry: you can still own Boardwalk and Park Place.
The game is wildly popular and we think it must have something to do with the title – kittens? exploding?
