The most popular posts from January had parents looking to relieve the tedium of long hours indoors with their kids. All the top three spots go to games for kids, whether it was solving a mystery sleuth style, placing their odds on the dice for football, or practicing math skills with a card game.
Clue Junior: In this spin on the classic whodunit game, players collect clues to solve the mystery of who ate the cake, at what time, and with which drink. The first player to guess correctly wins. Kids and adults alike can move any of the brightly colored figures on the board, meaning parents avoid arguments when two kids want the same piece. The picture-based clue sheets help kids who can’t read yet figure out the puzzle, making this a great game for a wide variety of ages.
Nifty 50: All kids need for this game is a standard deck of cards. Each player gets four cards, and rearranges them into two double-digit numbers. Using addition or subtraction, players try to get as close to the number 50 as possible. The person closest gets one point, and anyone who gets exactly 50 earns two points. The player with the most points when the deck of cards runs out wins.
Football Peg Game: Can’t wait until September for more football fun? If the big game left you feeling unsatisfied, host your own game with this wooden pegboard set. Players take turns rolling the dice. Each roll corresponds to a football play, from first downs and touchdowns, to fumbles and incompletions. Packed into a tiny board that can go anywhere, players compete to score the highest number of points.
