Its wintertime!

Just like me, you must also be looking for family games to play at home. Don’t worry I have already done a lot of research on best family games to play at home. It’s that time of the year when we don’t want to go out and have fun rather sit home and have some quality time with our friends and family.

However, just sitting at home and gossiping make things boring. To add crunch to the gathering, you must plan some games with your family. So, here are top 10 best family games to play at home.

Top 10 best family games to play at home

Treasure hunt

The game I played the most when I was a kid. This is among the best family games that one could ever suggest. To play this game, 10-12 people are sufficient.

How to play?

First teams are made. There can be 2-3 members in a team, depending on the number of members present in the house. The organizer of the game hides all the stuff in different corners or places of the house. The things the organizer hides must be written on the piece of a paper.

The copy of the paper with the item names is then handed over to every team. When the game starts, all the players are given the hint of the places where the items have been hidden.

This goes on for every item. The team to collect the maximum number of items in the given time wins.

Dumb Charades

Dumb Charades

This one is the most played game in gatherings. The game is all about explaining the people about a movie or a song without uttering a single word.

How to play?

Just like other games, the teams are made. Then the person of the opponent team gives a movie name to the team deciding to enact first. The person who has been given a name of the movie has to enact.

The person cannot speak a single word while he tries to explain the movie name or song name. He must do it with actions, there are few signs to suggest whether it is an English movie or a Hindi movie. If the team of the performer guess it right, then the team wins.

Ping pong game

Ping pong game

In this game there are only two teams. Plastic glasses are placed at both the ends of the table set up in the triangular formation. There is a drink in every plastic glass. Each team gets few tennis balls.

How to play?

Players throw a ping pong ball across a table to make it land in the glass of the opponent team. If the ball lands in the glass, the member of that team whose glass is being target must drink whatever is placed in the glass. Then the glass gets removed. This process continuous until a team among the two eliminate all the glasses from the table.

The 1st team to eliminate all the opponent’s glasses wins.

Pass the parcel

I am sure everyone remembers this game. We used to play this game in every party and event.

Pass the parcel

How to play?

Now, there are 2 ways of playing this game. 1st one is to select an item that has to be wrapped as a gift. Use as many newspapers as possible you can use to wrap the gift using a lot of tapes. Make sure its hard to tear. Sit in a circle with your family members and play a song. For playing and pausing the song there should be someone who is not a part of the game.

When the song plays, rotate the parcel. As soon as the song pauses, the person with the parcel has to open it and when the song plays, he has to start rotating it again. The process continuous. The last person to remove all the newspapers and take out the item out wins.

Truth or dare

Now, this game makes the atmosphere interesting.

Truth or dare

How to play?

You have to sit in a circle and rotate the bottle. Wait for the bottle to stop rotating and look for the person on whom the bottle stops. Anyone in the group can ask the targeted person whether he wants to choose truth or dare.

If the person chooses to dare give him a dare, and if he opts for truth ask him anything and he must be true with his answer.

Ludo

Everyone knows about this game; the game needs no special introduction. There are 2 choices in ludo game. First one is the house game, where the person to get in house with all 4 pawns wins. The other one is snakes and ladders.

I am sure I need not to give the tutorial of the game.

Cards

Cards

This game is everyone’s love. Have nothing to do? Play cards, bored of your work? Play cards, want to take a break? Play cards. This card game is very common. Card games are played with a deck or pack of cards.

There are several card games but the most popular one is Solitaire.

The other popular card games are poker, rummy, crazy eights, and much more.

Scrabble

Scrabble is a word game. You can either play this game on the scrabble board or on your mobile phone.

How to play?

You must set up the board. Decide it who wants to start first. Each player then draws tiles, and every player gets a turn to place the word on the board. Build on the existing word on the board and make sure you make words with maximum alphabets.

This way you’ll earn more scores. Scores of each word are written on the letter of the scrabble. After the game is finished, calculate the score and the player with highest score wins.

Never have I ever

Never have I ever is a question game.

How to play?

You must sit in a circle and begin with ‘Never have I ever…” and raise question. For instance, never have I ever- bunked a class.

If anyone from the circle has done it, the person has to raise a finger, if not them don’t don anything. Continue until at least one person has 3 fingers up. The person with 3 fingers up is out. The last one to stay wins.

Musical chairs

Musical chairs

Another game that does not need any explanation. You just have to set chairs in a straight line and play music. Assign a person to play and pause music.  When music starts run around the chair and when it stops sit on it.

If there are 8 people keep 7 chairs so that 1 person is left out. Continue this and the person to remain till the end wins.

I felt nostalgic while writing about all these games. You must also recreate all your childhood memories and enjoy these beautiful and exciting games with your family. These were the top 10 best family games to play at home.
