Monopoly has been a staple in American homes since the 1930s. This game employs a strategy that is simple enough to be grasped by some of the youngest children in the family. It also helps to build math skills. A game of Monopoly is a great way to spend a chilly afternoon with every age group.


A relatively new game, Spontuneous combines teamwork with a love of song. Gather children as young as eight with the adults to sing their way through to victory. Families who play Spontuneous don’t have to have a great talent for music. They simply need to be able to think of a song to sing or shout.


Anyone who can spell can play Scrabble. Matching wits with only the smallest element of luck can be fun for those who like to stretch their brains. This is a great board game to play on teams as well. Adults and children can play as pairs, which helps the youngest around the board learn about spelling and vocabulary.

The Game of Life

Life’s choices are put to the test in the Game of Life. This classic board game takes players through college, marriage, home ownership, parenting and, in some cases, lay-offs and lawsuits. It’s a simple game that relies primarily on a spinning wheel to determine the fates of the players’ lives.

Candy Land

Candy Land is the sweetest game on this list. Players simply draw cards, follow the color coding and try to make their way to the end. It is just as easy as it sounds, but it is rarely over as soon as you might think. With sudden movements to previous areas of the board, a game of Candy Land can last and last. Even the youngest in the family can enjoy this color matching game.


Introduced as 1966 as “the game that ties you up in knots,” Twister is a fun game for anyone who wants to get close and personal with their family members. The concept is simple. One person uses a spinner that directs participants to place a foot or hand on a dot. It doesn’t take long before mayhem and laughter takes over.

Trivial Pursuit

When you are looking for a game that lets you show off your knowledge while also learning a thing or two, look no further than Trivial Pursuit. It can be played individually or as teams to even the odds between children and adults. With plenty of different versions to choose from, families can bask in Trivial Pursuit games that focus entirely on sports, Disney, Star Wars, pop culture, specific decades and more. Perhaps the best choice is the family edition, which has questions for all ages.
