Our family loves playing board games together. Almost nightly we play at least one board game to wind down the craziness of the day. I’m more than happy we have a to of board games now that we’re all stuck inside during these crazy times.
If you don’t have a stock pile or are in need of some new family games I have happily put together this post to help out. All of the games you can get on Amazon and most are on Prime Same Day shipping so you can get them by tonight to start playing.
Best Family Board Games to Beat Cabin Fever1. Disney Villainous – There is a main game plus 3 expansions. This is a 2-6 player game for ages 10+. We’ve had younger players (7 and 8) play too but keep in mind there are a lot of complicated moves so it may just take some extra explanation and the game might go on longer than usual. Game objective is different for everyone since everyone plays as a Disney villain and the most wicked wins!Ticket to Ride – In this fast-paced board game, players connect iconic North American cities and build your train routes to earn points. Players must compete to grab the best train cards and routes before their opponents. 2-6 players and recommended for ages 8+.Horrified – Work together with your fellow heroes to defend the town against the onslaught of Frankenstein, Dracula, the bride of Frankenstein, the Wolfman, the Mummy, the invisible Man, and the creature from the black Lagoon.
