Games Ideas : Happy Families

Happy families 2The first Saturday back from our summer holidays in Spain, we resumed our weekly family board games night, to hour eldest daughter’s great delight. 🙂 We introduced to her our brand new Happy Families game that we had got for her over our holidays.
As a child, I had always enjoyed this game and it had been on my games shopping list for a while.
We had one of those great family times and all thoroughly enjoyed it.

Age: 5+

Pre-requisites: Deduction skills; Reading skills can come in handy too.

Number of players: 2-5

Game play:

  1. Give out 5 cards to each player.
  2. The rest of the deck of cards serves as a “pool”, sitting in the centre of the table.
  3. Playing clockwise, the youngest player starts by asking another player of his/her choice for a card s/he needs to complete a family in his/her possession. If s/he gets the card in question, s/he gets to request a new card from the players. Otherwise, s/he gets to draw a card from the pool.
  4. As families are reunited, they must be placed down facing upwards in front of the player. The player with most reunited families wins.

      1. We all have so much to learn from one another. :). That’s why I enjoy it when people share their tips and experience on this blog. There is so much that can be done to help our little ones learn their ml and it is an ongoing process throughout their childhood.
