5 Best Board Games for the Whole Family

For most of the week, your family is likely hustling through work and school while scarfing down a quick dinner before homework and bed. These fun family board games will encourage your entire crew to hit the pause button for a few hours and make room for memories that’ll last a lifetime. You’ll be grateful to have a game on hand that doesn’t require technology and that everyone in your fam can agree on.

From classic games like Candyland to newer favorites like Watch Ya’ Mouth, the family board game options today are nearly endless. My family has had a board game night every week for the past year, and we’ve discovered some great family games. These are our favorites, created with the help of my two kids, aged 8 and 11. We didn’t include board game classics that you probably know all about (or own), like Clue, Monopoly, Connect 4, Scrabble, Operation, Chutes and Ladders, Battleship, Jenga, Guess Who, Pictionary, and Risk. Check out our list of the Best Board Games to Play Over Zoom for other ideas.
