Wanna keep your teens interested in family night?
It certainly can be tough finding things to do with your teens that you both enjoy. Often times someone has to compromise at least a little.
Not with these games though! This list includes games everyone will appreciate.
Here are my families picks for some of the best games out there if you have teens.
7 Awesome Games to Play With Your Teens
1. Blank Slate
This game is one you can just pick up and play. The game lasts about 30 minutes and the rules are simple. Using mini-whiteboards, you write down words to complete a phrase. If your word matches that of other players, you score. The player with the most points wins!
2. Brain Fart
First off let me just say this game uses a timer shaped like a brain that should make you want to buy it already, but if that’s not enough, keep reading. Basically, the brain shows you a letter, then you roll the dice to find a category. You must yell out words that begin with the letter and fit into the category. Easy enough, right?
3. The Awkward Storyteller
This game reminds me of story dice we used to use when the kids were little. We would spend hours making up crazy stories together, those were some good times.
The storyteller in this game selects a card to begin the story. Other players use cards to ask the storyteller questions, which when answered, create the story. No game is ever the same. This one is sure to make you laugh!
4. Monopoly for Cheaters
Monopoly is a favorite around our house, but we do have a little cheating happening when one player in particular plays as the banker. So this game is perfect for us! No more angry players!
This game is unlike any other – players are encouraged to cheat! Cards and rules offer suggestions for ways to cheat and the player with the most money wins. The catch is to not get caught!
If you love games where drawing pictures are involved, this one’s for you. Players take turns drawing what they see, then pass the books around and guess what they saw. It’s an updated version of the old game telephone. Super fun game for all ages.
We love playing this game! It can seem a little complicated at first but watch the Youtube video that explains the gameplay and you’ll be building in no time.
Build your civilization by trading, selling, and strategizing your way to victory. Players collect resources needed to expand their colony. The player who gains 10 victory points first wins. Takes about 60 minutes to play. The cool thing here is they have so many expansions for this game, you’ll never get bored.
7. Dungeons and Dragons
Dungeons and Dragons is a game like no other! We have played many campaigns in our house and have very fond memories of it. The game takes a lot of preparation and time to play. It isn’t one you can just pick up and play quickly.
That is partly what makes it so fun!
Build a character you love then role-play as that character. The more real the character is to you, the better the game will be for everyone.
This starter kit gives you everything you need to start playing this amazing role-playing game. Beware this game is addicting and campaigns can last days, weeks, or months. This starter set campaign is meant to be played in approximately four 2 hour sessions.
There you have it! Our top 7 awesome games to play with your teens. Which one will you try first?
