Great family board games - June 2017 edition
I bought this for the hubby for Xmas and we played it a lot over winter.
If you are a fantasy fan this game is super fun. Based off a Dungeons and Dragons theme but a fraction of the time and none of the work that goes into creating a traditional D&D campaign. You move through the dungeon, battling monsters by rolling the dice. Gain treasures and valuables to help you defeat creatures on your travel. The characters in the game to choose from vary in skill level. You get a breakdown of what rooms, or levels, are best suited for your character. You don't have to stick with those rooms, but it makes for a more fun game if you have a couple young kiddos playing. My 9yo loves this game and he was able to pick up on it pretty easily. The 14yo also enjoys being a dark wizard and killing monsters. Awww... so much like her Dad.
Game time is about an hour.
If you have not played this game you are missing out. We have the "family friendly" version. Make sure you choose the appropriate one. The adult on says right on the box "NSFW Adult Only". The cards are super fun; beard cat, taco cat, exploding cats, a pig-a-corn.... so much funny happening. It's a card game where you hope to not pull an exploding cat from the card pile, if you do I hope you have a diffuse card. The game is from the creator of The Oatmeal.
Game time is 20-30 minutes.

Man Bites Dog
This is an inexpensive, travel friendly, short game. It's perfect for the nights where the 10yo really wants to play a game, the hubby and I are just exhausted. It funny and the rules are easy to follow. Everyone gets cards, you create a newspaper headline and keep score. There are "rules" that if the headline doesn't make sense you don't get points. We are flexible with this, as the point it to have fun but we do try and make the headline make some kind of sense.
Game time 10-15 minutes.
