Family Game Night

We can only spend so much time looking at our phones, scrolling Facebook and Instagram for the 100th time, only to see the same pictures and videos we did 20 minutes ago. It’s just as important to distance ourselves from constant social media as it is to practice social distancing.

We hope you have some favorite games that take your mind off things. Here are some of our favorite games to play with our quarantine buddies!


  1. Spoons 
    A fan favorite, and the best part is that you don’t need anything fancy. Just enough spoons for everyone playing and a deck of cards! For the official rules we recommend this video.
  2. UNO 
    UNO is another family classic. Don’t underestimate the power of the game… this will bring out the competitive side in every member of the group.
  3. Scrabble 
    Just like the app Words With Friends… but face to face and much better.
  4. Puzzles
    For those of us that may be alone during these times or just don’t like traditional games, puzzles are perfect. They are a perfect way to unwind and keep our minds focused on something other than the media.
  5. Mancala
    The perfect game for a pair of two! Cozy up on the couch after a long day of working from home, grab a glass of wine and unwind with a mellow game of marbles.
  6. Monopoly
    Talk about getting competitive! The game can last forever, so is a great option when you have a lot of time to kill. Bankruptcies, jail visits, and property taxes are sure to show each other’s true colors.
