Getting together with your family for the night can be all kinds of awesome. Actually getting everyone in the same room can be a tricky part, as teens usually want nothing to do with anything that seems remotely fun with their family. But once you’re able to corral everyone together, choosing the activity shouldn’t be the hard part. Some people love to put together puzzles, but that can be tough to do as a family. Others would rather watch a movie and that’s fine too. But a family game night opens up so many possibilities, as there are so many games for you to play. There are all kinds of games, including card games, board games, word games, and even just shooting some hoops in the driveway. We’ve found five of the top supplies you’ll want for a stay-in family game night and written about them below. Take a look and plan out your next night together.
