Ellen DeGeneres plays it with her celebrity guests and you can bring it to your living room for hours of hilarity. No one escapes from looking and sounding ridiculous when they wear the big-mouth mouthpiece and then try to read out what’s on their card. A funny guessing game for all ages.
Yes, a game that’s not made from plastic! This award-winning family game consists of wooden tiles featuring different shapes in various colours. It’s all about matching up colours or shapes to collect points and you lay them out in domino-style rows. The beauty of this game is in its simplicity. We love!
it’s a race against time with this less sedate board game. You race opponents up and down the board by swapping and collecting as many cards as possible before the game-timer runs out. A good one to amp-up flagging energy levels!
An oldie but goldie and we never get bored of this one. It’s just a good old-fashioned describing game (just don’t say any of the words on your card!).
Beat the Parents
A kids vs adults battle of trivia that’s totally designed to outwit the youngsters and baffle the parents in equal measure.
you could almost call this one a vintage game as it’s been around many, many years now. The latest version has updated names, faces and fashions but the family-fun levels remain the same as you try to figure out your opponent’s chosen character.
A treasure hunt on a board. The aim is to navigate the maze and find the treasures, but it’s not as straightforward as it seems when the tiles shift and your path is interrupted. A classic for ages 7+.
Set some time aside and throw yourself into a game of Monopoly that’s suited to all ages. Rather than London landmarks, players can buy a zoo, bowling or sweet shop (and other various more kid-friendly things). The concept is the same as the original game but infinitely more accessible for youngsters.
