board games, family, fun,

After a particularly stressful week, Saturday night we decided to “un-plug” as a family and instead play a board game- no movies, no video games, no mobile devices. There’s just something in the simplicity of doing something that doesn’t involve electricity that really brings the family together. {The Amish may be on to something}.

After debating which board game we wanted to play and miraculously deciding on one we all agreed on, I realized we have quite a few family favorites. Here are our family’s picks for top 5 best family board games:

We don’t do this as often as we should but every time we do it makes me thankful for the simple things in life like this.

I would love to hear any of your favorite games to play with the family… I am always looking for new ones to add to our collection!



  1. We always enjoyed playing UNO. I so miss those days!

    • UNO is one of my personal favorites too!

  2. Not a board game, but Max likes charades. We also love take one, a riff on Scrabble.
