Thanksgiving Break? How about a Family Game Night? These games would also make great Holiday Gift Ideas!

The holidays are here! Thanksgiving is this week and soon it will also be time for holiday shopping! I don’t know about you but I am looking forward to a few days off from work and school. We already have a few things to do such as the movies and hitting up the Mall. But, it’s also a great time to enjoy family time and playing games together is a fun thing to do!

Here are a few of my new favorites!

This one is quite unique and great for Cat lovers too!

Cat Crimes (8+): “Who’s to Blame Logic Game” is a single player puzzle with a loveable cast of characters! Each of the 40 challenges presents a crime and a series of clues to help solve it. Stashes easily in backpacks or the car for road trips. Winner of a Parents’ Choice Gold Award and National Parenting Product Award. $12.99. I just love this one, especially for travel and road trips!

This next one will be a real hit with both boys and girls and it’s really a lot of fun to play! I know most kids will love it simply because you can play it in the dark.

Shadows in the Forest (8+): “Play in the Dark Strategy Game” is a thrilling, immersive play experience that brings a distinctive twist to game night – you play in the dark! Promotes cooperative play, strategic thinking, light and shadow physics. As seen in Polygon and TrendHunter. Winner of a Techlicious Best of Toy Fair and National Parenting Product Award. $24.99 Now available in Target stores nationwide!

This next one is perfect for two players! I think even the Teenagers will like this one!

Laser Chess (8+): “Beam Directing Strategy Game” is a two-player game that combines the spatial thinking skills of chess with the high-tech fun of laser beams. Promotes STEM learning, light and reflection physics. Winner of multiple awards, including a National Parenting Product Award, MENSA Select and Parents’ Choice Silver Honor. $39.99

Look for them this holiday season!
