Fun Family Board Games. Nothing brings a family together like playing games. Put the phones away and connect with each other -- plan a family game night! Here are some of this year's fun games for kids of all ages. 


$19.99; 8+
The Monopoly Chance game is the high-stakes, card-flipping version of the Monopoly game—and it only takes about 20 minutes to play. Instead of moving a token around the board, each player receives a token deck with Cash cards, Bankrupt cards, and strategic cards that lend an edge. Roll the die and flip over up to that many cards. Play it safe and flip over just enough cards to "cash out"—or risk it all for the big bucks. But watch out! One too many flipped cards could reveal a Bankrupt card.

Sloth in a Hurry

Sloth in a Hurry
$23.99; 5+
A fast-moving improvisation game for all ages that combines creative thinking and a sense of humor. A player draws a WHO card, a WHAT card, then spins for HOW, and briefly acts out the combination. Sometimes challenging, always a lot of fun.

Monopoly Scrabble
$32.44; 8+

No dice are included in this ingenious mash-up of Monopoly and Scrabble. Instead, you move your token ahead by the number of points you scored in the word you just played. For example, on your turn, you play the word FUN in the Scrabble potion of the board. That is worth 6 points - but instead of keeping score - you move your Monopoly token ahead 6 points along the outside of the board on the Monopoly track.

UG Rainbow Picnic Box

The Very Hungry Caterpillar Rainbow Picnic Game
$19.99; 3+
Helps young children practice color recognition, patience, gross-motor skills and vocabulary. Draw a card and choose a colorful food item from the picnic that matches. Be the first to fill your rainbow with six different colored foods and win the game. Creativity and curiosity are two key building blocks for a lifetime of learning, this game is designed not only to amuse and delight but to inspire fun, playful discovery.
