Inspire Some Friendly Competition With These Fun Family Card Games
Looking for a new way to spend some time with your family? Try a fun card game! Not only will it keep your kids off screens for a little, but it's also a great way to get everyone together for some quality time. And because cards are naturally small, these games are highly portable — you can play them in the car, at a restaurant (who hasn't needed a distraction for antsy kids?), or just at the kitchen table. So whether it's a classic or a brand-new game you've never heard of, there's something here for every family. Scroll through to find your perfect family card game!
Get the entire family to compete with Taboo Kids vs. Parents ($17, originally $20). Kids play against parents in the race against the clock to get as many words as possible! It's a fun take on the game — the best part might be the squeaker that's used to squeak at the person who uses a forbidden word.
Lastly, there are a bunch of fun games to play with any deck of Bicycle Playing Cards ($3). Some of my favorites include Crazy Eights, SlapJack, Bluff, and President. It can also be fun to set up a tournament where you play one or multiple rounds of a game every night for a week and keep track of who is winning!
