Suggestions for Games to Play With Adult Children

My three sons and 2 daughter in-laws will be here in the beginning of January. We found that the plane flights were twice as many frequent flier miles or money at Christmas. We will celebrate Christ's birth then. We usually also have "game" night and I am looking for something new to purchase and play with them. They are all in their 20's and 30's. Any suggestions for new games that would be fun to play with them would be appreciated.

Phase 10 is a great game. Me and my family ( all adults) play it often. Its a card game. You can find the Phase ten cards in most wal-marts in the toy aisle where the games are at. also, Yahtzee is fun

Apples to Apples is a pretty fun game to play. I am in the age group you mentioned and my friends and I have a game night every so often and that is the game we play and it gets everyone talking and laughing.

My family enjoys a game called Apples to Apples. It is a fun word association game that you can play with a lot of people (of varying ages, too). Everybody receives a hand of cards with a descriptive word, a single separate card is flipped over by "the Judge" and everybody chooses one word card out of their hand that goes best with that card. It will often get silly because some people won't have a card that fits so you may get some funny descriptions. The Judge chooses his/her favorite word. Whoever submitted that word wins that round and gets the flip card. Depending on how many people there are, whoever has the amount of cards stated in the directions, wins. It was well worth the money because we love it and play it all the time!

We love to play 5 Crowns and Sequence. A lot of fun. Some people don't play games with face cards, but as long as we aren't gambling we think it is great and we have fun.

Dominos is a fun group game. There are many variations so it doesn't get boring. We also play Phase 10 and Uno.

I'd have to chime in with the chorus and suggest Apples to Apples as well. It's a great game for family and guests.

I bought it recently for our family and it's always a hit when guests come by or just with family. You can try it out at www.playyourredcard.com and try it out before you commit to it.

Hope that helps!

Any of the Scene It games are pretty fun. You need a tv and DVD player to play it. You guess different things about what ever the game is called. Like if it's regular Scene It then all the questions are about old and new movies. Some will be a scene to watch and others will be a question. Another fun game is Cranium. Some questions you have draw, some you have form some playdoh into something, and there are other things to do too. I'm 25 years old too. So, hope that helps.

Cancellation Hearts is a good card game for any number of people, Children and adults. You will find the rules by going to "google.com" Nothing to purchase but two decks of cards.

This one involves alcohol to get even the shyest person involved, but its called ENCORE and its a singing board game. Say the word is "beach" and you go back and forth in teams and sing as many songs as you can with the word beach in it. It really is alot of fun. Our family loves it.
