Ideas for family games night

by Developer Designer 21 Nov 2022

With the hustle and bustle of everyday life, it can be hard to find quality family time. One way to make the most of your time together is by grouping up and getting everyone involved in a night full of family activities – and what better way to do that than with a good old-fashion board game?

Here are a few options we like to keep handy.

My First Board Game

Featuring a cute pink pig that you won’t be able to resist, My First Board Game asks you to throw felt dice around and watch which of the six colours comes up. From there, all you need to do is find the corresponding-coloured card and tick off various tasks that you’re instructed to do.

As the pig gets hungrier, the whole family can enjoy stacking food up and feeding it to him, only to tuck him into bed once he’s sleepy. All of this action makes for a great way for little kids to learn about various sounds – like songs and animal noises.

The Epic Fail Game

The Epic Fail Game is a collection of challenging cards that teach kids and adults skills of mindfulness, creativity and resilience. 

The ultimate aim is to show players that failure is just a part of the journey, and that the actual joy comes from how inventive you are.

Designed with behavioural research in mind, The Epic Fail Game engages logic and rational thinking to inspire challenges from all angles. From testing your senses to refining your motor skills, this is one for the entire family.

The product features 20 group playing cards, 10 brave new day cards and a booklet to guide everyone along the way.


This one is all about how speedy you can be. The aim of SLAPZI is to be the first to match all the picture cards to their rightful clues. Every player is given five double-sided cards, with clue cards placed upside down in the centre. The first player to eliminate all of their picture cards by matching with the correct clues wins.

The best part is that there are multiple ways to play, so the kids will never get bored.


Kezao is a game of observation. The aim? Get rid of all seven of your cards BUT you can only do so by discarding them as the dice says to. With 60 cards to go through and four dice to dictate your game, this product is a winner for ages six and up.

Mobi or Mobi Kids

This game challenges you to solve mathematic equations as quickly as you can, and then connect them in grids based on crossword designs. The first to connect every tile wins.

While this one is great for the whole family, it’s a little more challenging than other options, so we recommend Mobi for ages 8 onwards, and Mobi Kids for those under this bracket.

Which of these favourites will you try this family game night?
