Hasbro – Keeping us Unplugged and Tuned-in One Game at a Time
When I think of Family Games Night, the very first thing that pops into my head is Hasbro. With such an extensive catalogue of games, they literally have a game for everyone of every age.
What I love about the selection of Hasbro games is that they are always coming up with new, fun and original board games, but they keep the classics. Yahtzee, Monopoly and The Game of Life are still there, albeit in updated versions. Hasbro stays relevant by bringing us the classics we love and the characters we adore, while continually bringing us new and unexpected favourites. Hasbro makes us WANT to spend time together, away from our phones and tablets and social media. Good, old fashion, timeless Family Games Night!
We have some of the classic games, and I believe all of the Junior Games. We also have a nice selection of the Hasbro dice games My 9 year old is outgrowing the Junior Games, so I figured it was time to update our collection a little bit!
Pie Face Ages 5+
My youngest two LOVE Pie Face. They don’t particularly want to follow the rules, but they have a great time playing. Pie Face is my youngest sons FAVOURITE game, and part of that is because it is a good excuse to eat whipped cream! This is a really fun and easy game to play, and if you don’t have any whipped cream (or don’t want to use it), you can use a damp sponge (sponge is included in the box).
Speak Out – Ages 16+
I don’t think I’ve laughed SO hard in a really long time. Speak Out is absolutely RIDICULOUS (in the best sense of the term). Trying to figure out what my son and husband were saying with the mouth piece in was beyond hilarious.
None of us could guess with any accuracy, and what we ended up with were sore ribs from all the laughter! I honestly haven’t had so much fun in a really, really long time.
Monopoly Token Madness – Ages 8+
There is nothing better than a classic game of Monopoly. Monopoly is timeless, and its no exaggeration when I state that we have a nice variety of Monopoly board games. My favourite version of Monopoly though is the classic version with the classic rules.
What I like most about the Monopoly Token Madness is that it IS the classic version of the game, with a bonus of 8 of the current golden tokens.
The classic tokens are all there, which is perfect because I am always the thimble. I AM ALWAYS THE THIMBLE! I am always the thimble.
So, with Monopoly Token Madness, I can continue to be the thimble, but my son can be the Golden Penguin. Its a win-win situation, and everyone is happy!
Clue – Ages 8+
Clue is one board game that I have never played . We play The Game of Life, Yahtzee, many versions of Monopoly, Candy Land, Trouble, and more, but I have never played Clue until the other night. Crazy story, but totally true!
Clue truly is the Classic Mystery Game! Six guests, six suspects. The latest addition sees a NEW suspect with the addition of Dr. Orchid. Dr. Orchid replaces Mrs. White after a 70 year run. Dr. Orchid holds a PhD in plant toxicology, and marks the first time that a female Clue character has had a job outside of the house (Mrs. White was the maid/chef).
After my youngest two sons were in bed, my 9 and 19 year old sons sat with me to play Clue for the very first time. Tux thought he was the fourth player, and seemed a little upset when we didn’t include him.
I am genuinely drawn to the Classic Games, and Clue is no exception. I really enjoyed playing this with my family. It was fun using our minds and solving mysteries together (against each other) and my 9 year old son was pretty thrilled when he won. It was Mrs. Peacock with the dagger in the library by the way!
Jenga Classic – Ages 6+
For any Family Games Night to be complete, you have to have Jenga. We have the Jenga Quake, but what we didn’t have was the original that started it all! What I like most about Jenga is that there are no minimum players required to participate. That means if Hayden or Kristopher want to play on their own while the rest of us play Monopoly, they can.
As with my favourite Hasbro games, Jenga is classic and timeless, and one of those games that stands up to the test of time. There are no electronics here. What Jenga does possess is good old fashioned fun that keeps up unplugged and tuned in, even if it is just for half an hour at a time!
Hasbro Games can be found anywhere board games are sold including Toys R Us, Walmart and Amazon.
You can find Hasbro online, or on social media!
