Five on Friday - Game Night Edition



 
Grab your favorite snacks and get ready to have a ball! Here are a few of my favorite games to play on family or friends game night!
Each team has two minutes to sound out three puzzles. The puzzles, contain small words that, when put together, make a word or phrase. For example, "These If Hill Wore" when pronounced quickly sounds like "The Civil War." Another example would be "Eye Mull of Mush Sheen" quickly spoken it sounds like "I'm A Love Machine." There are two levels of difficulties: easy and hard. The faster the puzzles are answered, the more points the players score.
 
Catch phrase is one of my family’s favorite games to play. The game is played in two teams. The goal for each player is to get their team to say the word or word phrase displayed in the disc. One member of a team starts the timer and tries to get his or her team to guess the displayed word or phrase. When the team guesses correctly, the other team takes its turn. Play continues until the timer runs out. The team not holding the disc when time runs out scores a point. They also have one chance to guess the word or phrase, with team members allowed to confer; a correct answer earns a bonus point. The first team to score 7 points wins.
 
It’s the opposite of Catch Phrase. Instead of one person giving the clues to the team, the team is giving the clues to the person holding the phone to their head. It is a great app that everyone should have for an impromptu game night!
 
 All you will need are a pair of headphones that cup around your ear so you can’t hear the other person. You can either make a list of phrases or just come up with them on the spot. One person will put the headphones on their head with loud music playing so they can’t hear the other person. The person without the headphones will mouth a phrase or word to their opponent. The object is to try and figure out what phrase or word the other is saying withouth hearing the words. Here are a few great examples!

Each players take turns removing one block at a time from a tower constructed of 54 blocks. Each block removed is then balanced on top of the tower, creating a progressively taller but less stable structure. The game ends when the tower falls, or if any piece falls from the tower other than the piece being knocked out to move to the top. The winner is the last person to successfully remove and place a block.
 
I hope you are inspired to have a family or friend game night tonight! Have a great weekend!
