Family game night is a tradition that will never get old. However, finding games that each family member will enjoy can sometimes be a bit tricky. Luckily, we’ve got a game for everyone on this list! From classics like Monopoly and Trouble to laugh-out-loud games like Speak Out and The #UpsideDownChallenge Game, your family will never be bored! Check out the list below and get ready for a night full of fun.

1. Clack!

In this simple game, players all take their turns at the same time, scrambling to stack up magnetized discs in the right order. All it takes is a roll of a die and a keen attention to detail, making this an easy-to-understand yet incredibly fun game for everyone in the family, regardless of age. Up for the challenge?

2. Unstable Unicorn

In Unstable Unicorn, you’ll use cards to create the ultimate unicorn army. Be the first to collect all seven cards with each superpower to make a mighty unicorn. This multiplayer game is great for big groups, so gather those family members and start collecting those superpowers!

3. Disney Villainous

It’s time to give the Disney princesses a break and let the villains have their time to shine. In Disney Villainous, choose from one of six iconic Disney villains. Each villain has their own board and tasks to complete before they can win. The goal? Complete your mischievous assignments and become the worst villain. This might be the only game where it’s good to be the worst.

4. Trouble

You’ll want to have your reflexes ready for this one. Pick a piece or join a team to race around the board. The first one to get home wins, unless they get bumped and run into some trouble! This game is great for family members or any age.

5. Speak Out: Kids Vs. Parents

Now, let's see if you can do this one with a straight face. In Speak Out, kids and parents face off to guess funny and unusual phrases. Sounds easy, right? Think again. The players have to wear cheek retractors, making everything very difficult, yet incredibly hilarious. Give it a shot and see if your family can master Speak Out.

6. #The UpsideDownChallenge Game

The #UpsideDownChallenge Game will be a hilarious hit during family game night. Each player must complete a set of challenges, but there's a catch. You must wear special glasses that make everything appear upside-down. The special glasses make the simplest tasks, such as writing your name, a major challenge.

7. Hedbanz

In Hebanz, one player is tasked with guessing the picture on their head. The drawback? You can only ask yes-or-no questions. This family-friendly game keeps the categories and the board pretty simple so everyone can get involved.

8. Richard Scarry's Busytown - Eye Found It!

There's a lot to discover in Richard Scarry’s Busytown. Thankfully, that’s where your family comes in. Join Huckle Cat and Lowly Worm on an adventure through Busytown to find hidden clues and objects. When you are done with the game, continue the adventure by reading about Huckle Cat and Lowly Worm in Richard Scary’s Busytown book series.

9. Flying Sushi Kitchen Game

It’s time to channel your inner chef at the next family game night! The Flying Sushi Kitchen Game requires a lot of skill, and creates even more excitement. In this wildly fun game, each player must pluck flying sushi out of the air before time runs out. The first player to gather an order above $25 is the winner. Better start working on those chopstick skills!

10. Battleship

Battleship is the best game for a two person, head-to-head contest. This updated version of Battleship makes the game even more dramatic with sounds and lights. Don’t worry, it’s just as good as the original.

11. Monopoly

It really doesn’t get more classic than a family game night spent playing Monopoly. Challenge your family to see who can buy the most properties and earn the most money. There are loads of different versions of the game out there, and no matter which you choose, you can count on a little family drama. Just make sure all of your debts are paid off! It is bound to get pretty competitive.
