Adding a little something new to your family game night routine is exactly what this winter needs. From utter nonsense to a royal roundup, we’ve found seven awesome games to play with the kids. Scroll through the album below to find your new favorite. 

This new family game is filled with silly phrases that require silly voices, and guarantees lots of giggles! There are 50 Accent Cards (Pirate, Side Mouth Talker, Chewbacca) and 450 Phrase cards (No Taylor, I cannot just shake it off, The first rule of Pancake Club is syrup on the side), so there is an endless amount of combinations to act out. Players are encouraged to improvise—the best performance wins the round!

Ages: 8 & up.

Available at target.com, $19.99.

Cobra Paw

Your ninjas-in-training will compete against each other in an “ancient” stone-snatching game that requires speed and concentration. Players take turns rolling the dice, and quickly grab up the tiles that match the image on the dice. The first player to grab six correct tiles is the winner! Can you become a ninja of the Cobra Paw?

Ages: 5 & up.

Available at amazon.com, $14.99.

Catch the Fox

Help the sneaky fox get away with the whole henhouse! Roll the dice, add more chickens to the fox’s trousers, and then give his head a push. When he can’t hold one more clucker, his pants will drop. Then, whoever fills their coop the fastest, wins! It’s fun and easy enough even for preschoolers to master.

Ages 4 & up.

Available at target.com, $19.99.

OK Play

OK Play, the new and exclusive Target game is like an off-road version of Connect Four. In order to win the round, players must make a line of five tiles. And, because there’s no game board, players can send play pieces off in random directions and repurpose old pieces to keep the game going. The game is made with bright plastic tiles and comes attached to a handy carabiner, making a good option for travel.

Ages 8 & up.

Available at target.com, $16.99.

 

Royal Roundup

Brave players must choose a horse and travel the winding roads to save princesses, knights and collect precious treasures that they may find along the way to the castle (players choose a route based on the location of the most valuable items). Kids will strengthen their math skills and will be introduced to basic strategy—the player with the most points wins!

Age: 5 & up.

Available at amazon.com, $19.99.

Not Parent Approved

It’s like Cards Against Humanity, but for the whole family. Settle down for an evening of gut-busting laughter when you and your crew choose a wacky word as the answer (the seven in your hand) that best fit the question cards. So, a Superman cape, dissecting frogs and vampire bunnies might all make the cut—and the possibilities are endless!

Ages 8 & up.

Available at amazon.com, $24.99.

Shark Bite

This new game from Pressman Toys is a real catch. No batteries are required, and even little who don’t read can master the rules. Simply roll the dice, go fishing and look out for the shark! You never know when he’s going to take a bite. The game comes with 1 hungry shark, 12 colorful sea creatures, 1 fishing rod, 1 die, 1 sticker sheet, and complete easy-to-follow instructions.

Ages: 4 & up.

Available at amazon.com, $16.99.
