Fun Family Games Gift Guide

in , , , , , , by Linda A Kinsman, Monday, November 07, 2022

Even though Halloween was just seven days ago, I decided to start sharing my gift guides today, so that you'll have ample time to consider the products and make an informed purchase decision. I wish we could slow the holidays down and not push them out right on top of each other, don't you? To that end, I'm starting this year's guides off with a fun family games gift guide that just might come in handy for all your gift giving needs year round.

Game Night Fun!

Fun Family Games Gift Guide

My thanks to each brand who sent me a complimentary game to try out. It was loads of fun discovering new games. I'm using affiliate links in this post, which means I may receive a small commission should you make a purchase. Thank you.

What game should we play?

With these fun family game options, the hardest part may be deciding what game to play. And if you've got some competitive family members, you may have to rock-paper-scissors to decide who gets the winning vote! I'm going to list my game suggestions by age first, starting with the youngest: 3+.

Bold Made- An Old Maid Upgrade: Fun for the whole family, especially girls

Ages: 3+/Play Time:15 min/Players 2-4

Bold Made game

The Goal? End up with the Bold Made Card! 

Bold Made was awarded the Best Children’s Product Award by Tillywig and I can see why. This fun remake of the out-of-date game, Old Maid and I am here for this upgrade! In this updated version, Bold Made flipped the script from Old Maid to Bold Made women. With 40 beautifully illustrated cards you'll learn about women such as:

Georgia O'Keeffe

Temple Grandin 

Malala Yousafzai (I've got a blog post about her here)

Ellen Ochoa 

Isabel Allende

Billie Jean King

There are multiple ways to play such as Bold Made - Old Maid upgrade, for 2-4 players is perfect for kids 3+ and  takes about 5 to 10 minutes to play, making it perfect for shorter attention spans. Bold Made Advanced, for 2-4 players, is great for kids and adults 7+. This version takes 15 to 30 minutes to play and is loads of fun! Use this link to purchase Bold Made.

Taco vs Burrito:  Perfect Family-Friendly Party Game for Kids, Teens & Adults

Ages 7+/Play Time 15 min/Players 2-4 

Taco vs Burrito game

The Goal? Build the weirdest, wildest meal! 

This wildly popular and surprisingly strategic game was created by a 7-year-old and has taken the card game industry by storm. It's just one game, but there are five ways to play it making it fun and fresh each time you play. It may sound easy to build the weirdest meal, but when your opponent gives you tummy aches or uses the trash panda card, your dreams of winning could be dashed. With 24 food cards and 32 action cards, the fun combos are almost endless. Use this link to purchase Taco vs Burrito.

Don't Go Boom: Card game for kids to have an explosively good time

Ages 7+/Play time 25 min/ Player 2-6

Don't go boom game

The Goal? Get the lowest possible score!

Don’t Go Boom is easy to learn and is played in three, fast paced rounds. It's perfect for kids ages 7 and up. Action cards help players strategize the best moves so they don't go boom! Points are totaled by adding up the numbers of each player's minefield cards at the end of each round. Bombs in your minefield can be diffused (lowering your score) by matching numbers on your cards so you have the lowest score after three rounds. Use this link to purchase Don't Go Boom.
