BIG KIDS (Ages 7+)
Ages 7+
Trap and capture your opponent by placing
your disks on the board. “Sandwich” at least one of your opponent’s pieces to turn their disk to your color; but look out, your opponent will do the same to you!
Trekking the National Parks
Ages 10+
Experience the U.S. National Parks in a fun and competitive way. Players compete for points by claiming Park Cards and collecting trail stones as they race across
the country experiencing the wonders at each of these magnificent landscapes.
UNO Attack!
Ages 7+
If you are a fan of UNO, you’ll love the new UNO Attack! In this game, the rules are the same, but with a twist: when you must draw, the card shooter may not shoot any cards or it will stream out several cards, keeping you in the game longer.
Ages 10+
Build settlements, cities and roads on an island by spending and trading resources. Accumulate points during play (you need 10 to win) by building, having the longest road and the biggest army and more.
Exploding Kittens
Ages 7+
Players take turns drawing cards until someone draws an exploding kitten and loses the game. There are a few twists to help you avoid exploding along the way. Russian roulette sort of fun.

challenge your child’s reading skills. For example, when playing trivia, the kids each take turns reading questions that may be about subjects that are new to them. They practice their read-aloud skills and might learn new information too.
Create great family
Perhaps the best reason to add a family game night to your schedule is enjoying quality time together. While doing
so you will create wonderful family memories as you laugh together and enjoy some healthy competition. Kids are sure to look back on this family tradition and appreciate that you made time to set aside
the distractions of life and enjoy the time spent playing together.
When planning a game night make sure to be realistic. Playing games for several
hours every Saturday night will probably not work for most families due to busy schedules. Plan a night where everyone is free and choose a game that can be played in a reasonable amount of time that will keep everyone’s interest as well as be fun for all involved. Game night doesn’t have to happen every week, try for once a month or every six weeks. Put game night on your calendar and adjust plans to protect that time from other engagements. The time you put into family game night will be worth the bond your family members will build and the memories you will share.
Ages 8+
This classic detective game has players solving the mystery of who done it at the mansion. Players move from room to room using deductive reasoning to find out the contents of the confidential file in the middle of the board.
   The Game of Life
Ages 8+
In this game, players can make their own exciting choices as they move through the twists and turns of life. A spinning wheel makes the play fun as do the little cars you use as your game token and the pegs you use for people.
Ages 13+
In this hilarious game, players have to complete activities in each of four sections to win, calling up creativity, trivia knowledge, word scramble ability, impersonation skills and more.
