Do you love board games? Well, I do! I am known to keep Bananagrams in my purse and whip it out
appropriate inappropriate times during coffee dates or when waiting for a meal at a restaurant. Mr. Bird and I also sometimes relax after Little Bird goes to bed with a quick game. And I love hosting game nights! If you are looking for some good board games, here is a list of some of our favorites!
Bananagrams! Similar to scrabble, but speed and flexibility are key to mastering this word game. Great for 2 players, but you can play with up to 4.
Dixit A family game for kids ages 8+. A low-key story picture guessing game. For 3-6 players.This is a favorite of ours, and we have yet to find friends or family who doesn’t enjoy it.
Forbidden Island A collaborative everybody wins together or loses together game. Another low key game, however, this one involves thinking and strategy planning. For ages 10+ and 2-4 players.
Ticket to Ride A game similar to Monopoly in which there can be multiple strategies to succeed. Using cards/tickets you will build your train from destination to destination. A great game for 2-5 players and my guess is age 10+
Anomia I have friends who LOVE this game, and friends that hate this game! It is a fast-paced, word/symbol association game. I think its one of those games that if you think a certain way you enjoy it, and if you don’t, you hate it. I for one, LOVE IT! For 3-6 players.
Sushi Go A quick, fun and quirky card game where you try to combine cards to create sushi combinations for points. It’s a quick play. Ages 8+ for 2-5 players.
Last Word! This is a super fun party game! It is recommended for ages 14+ and 2-8 players (although you can play with ANY number of players if you have coins or tokens to use as score pieces). This is similar to a hot potato word game. Fun, easy and great for a crowd!
