Best Family Games (According to Instagram)

Sharing is caring!

Social media has a lot of faults, but it also has the potential to strengthen a community and open your eyes to new things. Recently, I asked my Instagram community for their favorite games and… you definitely delivered! I debated how to share the list of games and a blog post seemed the simplest way for the quantity shared. So, without further ado… The Best Family Games According to Instagram.

Instagram’s Favorite Family Games

I sorted the games below in alphabetical order. I’ve also included numbers of players and the recommended ages, although I think you can get away with playing with slightly younger kids than is recommended if you provide guidance on the rules and reminders of the steps to take.

Here are Instagram’s favorite family games:

Family Game Night Basket

There’s no arguing that family games are a great way to make memories and strengthen family bonds. For the past three or four years, I’ve put together a Family Game Night Basket for my kids for Christmas. It’s nothing fancy, just an empty amazon box wrapped in festive paper and stuffed with some games and snacks.

This upcoming year, based on the recommendations above, I plan on including Ticket to Ride, Taco Cat Goat Cheese Pizza, Exploding Kittens, Azul, and Sushi Go.

I chose those games based on the recommendations and the names. Kittens, cats, tacos, and sushi are all VERY popular in our house, so these games will be fun AND my kids will get a kick out of the names. Oh, and Azul had a pretty box. That’s important, right?

If your family has a favorite game that didn’t make this list, I’d LOVE to hear about it! In fact, I’ll add it in after you comment. Drop a note below and let me know!
