Now that the holiday season is over and we are partied out, I can offer my expert advice on fun games to play. My disclaimer is that I am NOT your typical game person. I can’t shuffle very well and I can’t ever remember the rules to most card games but I am an awesome person with perfect opinions. And with that, here is my guide:
GAMES THAT I HIGHLY RECOMMEND YOU NEVER PLAY
*Settlers of Catan
Nothing personal with the above games (actually it is), but they all require too much TIME. Fun games should not take longer than 15 minutes and they also shouldn’t require enough brain power that you’d miss something if you had to go change a diaper, make a sandwich, or carry on a conversation with someone across the room.
FUN GAMES I RECOMMEND FOR ANY PARTY:
*25 Words or Less
*A to Z
*Anomia (new find from faraway sis)!
*Catchphrase (wouldn't be conference weekend without it, though I think I have most of the categories memorized by now)
All the above games are fun word-speedy- yell out games that make me break out from my demure nature. They’re great for a group and can often get those other demure people involved.
So go return the that Settlers of Catan expansion set Auntie Beulah bought you, and invest in some of my game suggestions.
(Of course, if you really are angry that I dissed some of your faves or wondering why I didn’t recommend SkipBo, then you and Hub can get together for game night anytime. He’s up for anything. As evidenced by the fact he played High School Musical Monopoly Jr. with the kiddies…..bless his heart.)
