Family Game Night: Favorite Family Board Games

We LOVE family game night around here and that’s why I’m so excited to share that we have partnered with our friends from HABA to bring your our top picks for favorite family board games this holiday season.

Staying connected with our kids as they grow older is a huge goal of ours, and we find that family game nights help to keep us engaged and interacting with our kids. Plus, they provide great entertainment through the holidays and other gathering times.

Nothing beats giggles and friendly competition around the table. While these family games are certainly fun ALL YEAR ROUND, National Games and Puzzle Week is also just around the corner (November 18-24, 2018) so make sure to be ready by adding a few of these additions for your game shelf, perfect for all ages and stages!

While I’ve listed suggested retail values on the games below, we will see many hot deals on them through the season, so make sure to check the widget at the bottom of this post which should show you current pricing. I noticed that some of them are already over 1/2 off! Here are our picks for great gift ideas for kids this year:
