Phase 10

Phase 10 is a long game, so you need to have several hours to play all the way through.

Rummikub

My kids love this tile game. It is a tradition in my husband’s family to play Rummikub with his grandmother.

Game night is a great way to enjoy family time with your kids. It is a great bonding time that my kids ask for each week. They love that time together. Of course, they are really competitive, so that may be part of it. But anything you can do to keep in touch and involved with your kids, the better. Now that my kids are older, they are beating us at some of these games. That makes it even more fun and challenging for us too.

    Thanks for the great suggestions! My husband I were just saying we need another game. Well actually HE said it. We play a lot of Boggle and I always win so he just wants a game HE can win! 🙂 My girls are into it also so it’s great because it keeps them off the electronics for a bit.

    Family game night is such a great way to get the family together, not only to play games but to just talk to each other. Thanks for dropping by!

    Thanks for the great ideas! My husband and I love playing games. Our oldest just turned 3, and so far we have Candy Land, Hi Ho Cherrio, and Sneaky, Snacky Squirrel. I can’t wait until the kids are older and we can play more advanced games together! Pinning this for the future 🙂

      It’s so fun when they get old enough to learn strategy and they get the harder games. You’ll get there before you know it. Thanks for stopping by!

    Ticket to ride is great. I like the complex ones over breaks, but it is too much for a random evening for me!

      You’re right. Short card games are better for us for a quick game. Thanks for stopping by!

    I had Rummikub when I was a teenager. (I bet Mom still has it, in fact!) I always loved that game.

      Rummikub was a family tradition at my husband’s grandmothers house. That is where I was introduced to the game. Thanks for stopping by!
