Our Favorite Classic Family Games

Thanks to Minute Maid® Pure Squeezed for sponsoring this post. Click here to see more of the discussion.

As a family we are always trying to find new games to play but we always end up going back to our favorites! My favorite types of games are the ones that have simple instructions, can be taught quickly to any guest and can involve a wide range of ages. There’s only so much Candy Land I can take without seeing double gumdrops.

    Here are our favorite classic games that we come back to over and over again....ones that stand the test of time. Click through the gallery!
  • Apples to Apples 2 of 8
    Apples to Apples
    Apples to Apples has always been a favorite and it's an easy way to involve a large number of people! We love that it involved imagination and creative thinking. It's a very non-complicated card game. $18.99 at Amazon
  • Blokus 3 of 8
    Blokus is a great game of strategy and math skills...and there's even a version for small kids. It keeps the whole family on their toes and we joke that we get smarter every time we play (I think we do!) $19.91 on Amazon
  • Modified Scrabble 4 of 8
    Modified Scrabble
    We've started playing Scrabble as a family. With my six year old we've made a few modifications so that she can easily play it (click here to download the scorecard). $23.99 at Amazon.
  • Uno 5 of 8
    Uno was my favorite game as a kid. It's easy to pack for travel and easy to simplify for all ages. $6.71 on Amazon.
  • Oversized Checkers 6 of 8
    Oversized Checkers
    I inherited one of these marble labyrinths from my grandfather and I still love pulling it out. It's hard even for the adults but we'll sit there for hours trying to get the marble through the maze! $19.99 on Amazon.
  • Marble Labyrinth 7 of 8
    Marble Labyrinth
    A jumbo checker game is great when the weather is nice! Take it to the park! $14.37 on Amazon.
  • Connect Four 8 of 8

    Connect four is always a blast! We even have a little mini travel version I throw in my purse. $22.95 on Amazon.
