It helps start a dialog between parents and their children. Games teach life lessons, friendly competition, and rule following. Family game nights also promote critical thinking, team work, and problem solving. Playing a game together as a family encourages so much positive growth and development. Actually, it’s also a great way to bond and make memories together that the whole family will always cherish.

As a mom and some one who works in our school systems, I really love products by Blue Orange Games. These games are terrific because they’re creative, unique, and just plain fun! Mindblock is one of our favorites and a classic go-to for Family Game Nights.

This game promotes math skills, encourages children to use their attention and focusing abilities, and cultivates critical thinking. However, your kids will have so much fun playing Mindblock, they will have no clue that they’re learning as well!

Basically, this game is Rummy with stacking blocks. Each player will create sets and runs by combining blocks that range in height from 1 to 7. Sets are made with 3 or 4 blocks of the same size, but different colors. Runs are made up of 3 or more blocks of the same color in consecutive order. But, you will need to stay on your toes, think ahead, make important decisions, and keep track of what’s on the table. Playing Mindblock brought us lots of laughs, deep thought, and fun!

Topicubes is seriously an absolute blast to play with friends and family! We like to bring this game out also when we’re having holiday parties.

Actually, it’s a great game for kids and adults to play together. The Topicubes game promotes language development and creativity. Players roll 10 dice, 5 with a letter, and 5 with an illustrated topic, and race to find matching words. A winning matching word must start with one of the letters showing on a die, and must belong to one of the categories showing on a die of a different color.

Tumble Maze is a game made for one player, however our family has turned it into a family event.
