4 Fun & Engaging Games for Friends Game Night!

The season to rejoice is here again! 

Time with family and friends are so precious and should always be filled with fun and laughter to build even closer bonds with each other. Maybe this year we can do it without any of the digital devices we are so hooked on to..... Below we have our recommendations that will bring lots of fun to your next friends game night!


The Empathy Game

This is the perfect game to divert people from small talk to focus on what is truly important and personal. This game lets you pick a card out of three categories-- "Who is...", "Memory" and "Imagine", which vary in the nature of questions asked.

How to Play:

1. Roll the category die to decide which stack to take a card from.

2. Take a card and read the question out loud.

3. Take your time to answer the question and try to give your listeners a context. for the story you are sharing.

4. When you have finished the story, roll the engagement die.

5. Give listeners some time to think and jot down their thoughts.

6. All listeners share their answer, one by one.

7. Pass both dice to the person to your left and repeat the steps.



Do remember to set the boundaries of sharing such that everyone in the room is comfortable to not go overboard. Players should all prepare paper and colour pencils to take part in the ‘Engagement' portion of the game. The game ends whenever players decide to. A debrief is encouraged at the end of the game.

Specially designed for the pre-reader and early learner, My First BANANAGRAMS utilizes lowercase letters that help children cultivate the love for the English alphabets and even spelling. Also included are combo-letter word building tiles, which are the first step in word creation. With multiple mini games, My First BANANAGRAMS creates a step-by-step play-progression towards ultimately learning how to play a full game of BANANAGRAMS.


How to Play:

Start by placing all 80 single letter tiles facedown in the center of the table. These form the majority of the words to be used. Each player takes 15 single-letter tiles. The objective of the game is to be the first to use all your letters in a connected word grid without a spelling mistake, proper noun or abbreviation. There are also multiple ways to use the tiles to progress your preschooler in their reading skills. Like spelling your name, placing the abc’s in order and letter matching.

Going Going Gone!

Beware! This may break friendships (just kidding!) because of the auction format. Thirty-six masterpieces are up for auction. Are they bargains to be snapped up or over-hyped drains on your finances? You’ll never know unless you bid!


How to Play:

In this board game for up to six players, you travel the world as an art collector scouring the auction houses, visiting art fairs, and making private deals in search of elusive artworks to complete your collection. The winner is the player with the most valuable collection and the most cash in hand at the end of the game.
