My family doesn’t have a lot of traditions, but there’s one we stick to every year when the holidays roll around: buying a new game for us to play on Christmas Eve. It can be a card game, board game, or any other type as long as we’re all spending time having fun together.
Opening the game together on Christmas Eve also helps to distract us from thinking about the presents that are still under the tree that we’re just dying to unwrap in the morning. Plus, depending on how rambunctious we get as we play, it’s also a great way to tucker us out early so we can wake up bright and early the next day. If your family is anything like mine, you won’t have any trouble letting your competitive side bring plenty of excitement to any game.
Of course, you don't have to wait for the holidays to have a family game night. Each of the games below would be a blast for everyone — young or old — to join in all year round. Keep reading to see all the fun games you and your family can enjoy together!
