One of our favorite things to do together as a family is play games. We try to have a family game night at least once a week, but sometimes more. In the summer, I spend a lot of days just playing games with the girls. Yes, like the whole day. It is so much fun and great family bonding time. My mother and niece were visiting this summer for a few weeks, and we spent a lot of time checking out some new games. These few really stood out as great family games. So if you are looking to add some to your collection, check these out!
Bouncing Bots (RoosterFin)
I could tell right away that Bouncing Bots was going to be a lot of fun. I will warn you now though, it can get loud and crazy. For us however, we love when loud and crazy happens during our family game time. Players will be bouncing their bots all over the place. Little ones do need to be careful as they can hurt when they hit you in the head. Over all though, this game is a ton of fun! You will find yourself celebrating when you hit the 3 pointers. My niece, who is 11, really enjoyed this game and said she wants to play it with all of her friends from school.

Utter Nonsense: Family Edition
This game was so much fun to play! My entire family was laughing so hard we could barely breath. I shed a few tears once or twice as well. My 11 year old niece just loved this game and said it would be a great party game for kids around her age. If you are looking for a game that will have the whole family laughing, this is it!
Utter Nonsense: Family Edition is a hilarious, family-friendly card game where players combine silly voices with even sillier phrases to create sayings that are just plain ridiculous. The game contains 50 Accent Cards and 450 Phrase Cards which players combine and act out. You don’t have to be good at accents and the combinations don’t need to make sense. Players are encouraged to improvise and make the phrases their own because the best performance wins the round. Age 8 is the suggested starting point so that kids can read the cards, but the humor is appropriate for all ages. Both kids and adults will have fun playing this game!

This game is a ton of fun! We all had a blast trying to be the first to collect 5 coins of 2 diamonds. My niece said that she would like to play it with her friends – and even asked my sister to buy it for her after playing! My 6 year old loved this game and asked if we could play it every day. It is great because it makes her think and use her brain to crack the code, while still being lots of fun.
Calling all top-secret spies! Safe Breaker from YULU Toys is a new electronic game that combines spy skill, memory and a little bit of luck, challenging players to crack the code and break into the safe. To start the mission, players pick a card and turn the safe combination to the corresponding number shown. Next, use the fingerprint scanner to test the number. If the light is green, the safe will release some coins. If the light is red, connect the spy listening gear to the safe to hear a top- secret clue to deduce the correct combination code. Clues include mathematical chances and luck elements, allowing for a new experience each round. BEWARE! Players who release police coins will alert the police and must return all their coins to the safe. The spy who collects the five golden coins or two diamond coins first, wins the game.
