We are a BIG game playing family. In part, because we decided that we needed to just Turn The TV Off. Really, there are so many better ways to pass the time we share together. Ways to have quality time. And by utilizing non-screen activities, our days seem to go so much better too. Attitudes improve immensely. And while we spend many hours enjoying the outdoors in the summer. I find that playing a variety of fun family games is probably our favorite past time. This includes a rousing game of hide and seek! (Side note: If you haven’t played hide and seek as an adult, do it! We have so much fun playing this with our kids. When they are really young, it’s just hilarious. But as they get older, it becomes really challenging!)
Fun Family Board Games & Unique Games
But we also love to utilize board games too. And one of our favorites is from Winning Moves Games. My husband, Mike, and I have actually been playing it since we were newlyweds. But now, the kids love to get in on the fun. So I was really excited to partner with Winning Moves Games to share a variety of fun family game options with you, including this favorite.
Fun Family Games
When we first got married we’d spend each evening, after work, playing a variety of games. It was a cheap and fun way to spend the night together. And boy did we have a lot of fun. One game that made the rotation several times a week was Pass The Pigs. Another was Monopoly. Of course, there were others as well but these were both staples for us.
Pass The Pigs Fun Family Games
I recently discovered that there is more to the Pass The Pigs line up than what we used to play. While the classic game is still alive and well, Winning Moves fun family games has expanded. They have a variety of options now that the whole family loves to play.
Pass The Pigs BIG PIGS
The spin on this Pass The Pigs BIG PIGS version is that the pigs are BIG! So while the play is the same, the oversized foam pigs add a whole new dimension.
With a lightweight foam construction, the pigs are easy to toss. And the best part is that they can be played indoors or out.
If you’ve never played Pass The Pigs BIG PIGS (or any Pass The Pigs version), the goal is to get to 100 points. Players take turns tossing the pigs and score points based on how they land. On your turn, you continue adding points until you pig out, get an oinker, or stop tossing. Most of the game is luck but a little bit of skill and brains in knowing when to stop rolling too.
We actually took this particular BIG PIGS version along when we went to visit family at a campground this past weekend. It was a big hit! Everyone was super curious about it as nobody had ever seen the BIG PIGS.
It’s definitely a game that we will be playing again and again. And, this version comes with a bigger score pad, travel and storage bag, and the two large pigs.
CLASSIC Pass The Pigs Fun Family Games
This is the version that people are most familiar with. Just as in Big Pigs, players toss the mini pig dice to score. Everything is the same but this version travels easier and is great for carry-on luggage. (We’ve taken it with us on several of our vacations! Perfect for airport entertainment.)
Truly a classic party game that can be played in about 20 minutes or less. Great for kids or adults alike! It’s always been a hit with everyone we’ve played with.
Pass The Pigs PIG PARTY
With a slight spin on the Classic Pass The Pigs Game, Pig Party can be played as classic or against other players. To play in compete mode, this game can accommodate 2 to 4 players.
Each player takes a set of matching pigs. Flip one card and then all the players begin rolling at the same time. The first player to get the roll on the card gets to score. And the game ends when a player racks up to 100 points total first.
This Pass The Pigs Pig Party game also does incorporate bonus cards too, which really helps add points to your score. I like how it comes with a zippered carrying case as it makes taking along to parties and family gatherings super easy.
Growing up, my sister and I played Monopoly all the time. But especially when we’d spend the week at my aunt’s house. We’d set up the board in the back bedroom and play with her two older children and nephews. It was SO much fun! We were completely obsessed with the game. And now seeing my own children enamored with Monopoly brings back so many memories.
Our 7 year old especially loves the game and is in the midst of a game with our other kids every week or two. They also love setting up our spare table and benches so meals won’t get in the way of their play. So when his birthday creeps up here in September, I am beyond excited to surprise him with the Winning Moves Games Monopoly MEGA!
All the fun of this timeless game but in a mega way! The game board itself is 50% larger than the regular. And there are twelve more spaces on the Monopoly MEGA version too. Which includes nine additional properties. Some more fun additions are skyscrapers, where players can earn “mega” rent. And there’s even $1,000 bills now!
Plus, if you’re in a hurry, players can utilize the speed die and bus tickets for quicker, more intense, action. Play an entire game in 90 minutes or less if you want! Or forgo the speed die and play regular if you’re not in a time crunch.
Geared for ages 8 and up and 2 to 8 players, I’m super excited to play this on an upcoming family game night.
