    What are your favorite games/ board games to play. We are planning an "every other week" game night and I want to get ready for it. We will at times invite kids my kids ages between 12 and 14.

    I thought this could also be a good place to share unique Baby Shower or Bridal Shower games too. At the last baby shower I planned I did the poopie diaper game and it was a riot. 10- numbered diapers with mysterious foods on them and with pen and paper everyone had to guess what each diaper had on it. The chipotle ranch dressing one yielded the funniest "grossed out" faces of all. lol I also had a game where you give each person a white disposable plate and a crayon. They must put the plate on top of their head and draw a baby, the mom to be judges the best Picasso baby drawing. :) So please share your favorite party games and board games. I have lots of prego friends right now and I'm going to need some new games.

    So fun! There are cards with what appear to be nonsense words but are actually phrases that are well known and you have to decipher what they really are--it's a hoot!

    We're Yahtzee and Parcheesi fans. I love Trivial Pursuit and Scrabble. The Furry Guy is into strategy games like Othello, Abalone, and chess.

    I missed out on playing a lot of the more popular games, but it's never to late! The only thing I remember playing is Monopoly, Life, Connect four, Battleship and a few card games. :) I want some good ones we can play in big groups. I will look up Yahtzee and Parcheesi. Mad Gab sounds great too. I trust you guys if you say these are fun! :)

    This sounds nice and wholesome! My Kids own almost every Disney movie so they would probably enjoy it too. I'm assuming you act out characters? I will look this up too. Whoohooo!!

    Cranium is a good one. I think you have to have atleast 6 people to play it.

    I purchased "Fact or Crap" the other day and we played at our last game night with friends.
    Even the kids liked it and understood it. I got it at Toys R' Us so it wasn't a "bad" game.

    My daughter played "Smart A.." at a friends house a couple of weeks ago. She liked it so much she has been looking for it ever since. I have only found it online so far.
    Not sure what it is about I will have to ask her. She told me and I have forgotten!:confused:

    Love Scene it - any version, we have the Disney edition and Movie edition. There's about a dozen different versions.

    Also love Cranium, Mad Gab, Dominoes, and UNO.

    Our group of friends play telephone pictionary. You get a sheet (or square) of paper per each person in the room. So if there are 12 people each person should have 12 pieces of paper. Write a phrase like 'singing in the rain' on the top page (everyone picks their phrase and don't tell the group). You pass the stack to the person to your left. They look at your phrase and move it to the bottom of the stack. On page two they draw your phrase (or their interpretation of it). The the stack is passed again. The third person looks at the picture and then puts it on the bottom of the stack. On page three they write a phrase they think describes the picture. Basically on odd pages you write on even pages you draw. Your stack goes around the room and eventually gets back to you. It's funny at the end b/c everyone explains their stack. So 'singing in the rain' could be drawn as a man with an umbrella with a music note. then it could be interpreted as a man getting struck by lightening. it's really funny and can take up some time depending on how many people you have. You can limit the topics to 'movie titles, storybooks, showtunes'.

    Ditto on taboo! love it & works great for small or very large groups.

    We got the kids giant spoons for Christmas. Played the same as regular spoons. My kids love it (4,6). My husband isn't a game person and he'll even play. I ordered ours on-line. Of course you could also play with a regular deck of cards and kitchen spoons.
