Family Game Night is a great way to connect with family and friends! Game night can be a regularly scheduled thing at your house, or may be something spontaneous, but either way it’s a great way to have fun together, have some laughs, and enjoy a little competition.
One of my favorite parts of our extended family vacations is when we all sit down at night to play some of our favorite games! We usually start with a big group game that everyone can join in and then as it gets later and kids’ bedtimes start to come around we usually find a couple different games for smaller groups!
The best games we have found are the simple ones that make people connect. Sometimes these can be ones that have been made up or some that have been passed down and played for years! My nieces and nephew have a few games that they can’t wait to play when we are together, and every year it’s a different one who cannot wait to be old enough to be a part of the fun! It’s easy to have a great game night! Just add some family and friends, some yummy snacks, and a great game!
Utter Nonsense is a board game that was created based on a game that had been made up and played for years! It always brought the founders so many laughs that they had to share it with others. It was such a success that they decided to make a family version for kids ages 8 and up! This silly game combining accents and crazy phrases is a great way to get everyone laughing!
Here’s a little more about Utter Nonsense:
Utter Nonsense: Family Edition is a hilarious, family-friendly card game where players combine silly voices with even sillier phrases to create sayings that are just plain ridiculous.
•The game contains 50 Accent Cards and 450 Phrase Cards which players combine and act out. You don’t have to be good at accents and the combinations don’t need to make sense. Players are encouraged to improvise and make the phrases their own because the best performance wins the round.
•Age 8 is the suggested starting point so that kids can read the cards, but the humor is appropriate for all ages. Both kids and adults will have fun playing the game!
•Sold exclusively at Target stores and online, beginning June 18. Retails for $24.99
I look forward to the time that my kids are excited about Family Game Night at home and even on vacation with extended family! I love to connect through laughter and competition!
