5 Quick And Easy Board Games For Family Game Night

Imagine this: “You’re” cozied up in your RV after a long day of exploring, the rain gently tapping on your roof, and your family gathered around, ready for some bonding time. Sounds perfect, doesn’t it? Hello there! Steph here, your friendly RV adventurer and family fun guru. Remember those nights of playing board games during camping trips? I sure do! Here’s a list of quick and easy board games that are not only perfect for family game night but also RV-friendly. Ready to dive into a world of dice, cards, and laughter?

1. Uno:

Ah, the classic game of colors and numbers. Uno is as compact as it gets and the rules? Simple enough for even the youngest players. Plus, the thrill of throwing down that ‘Draw Four’ card? Priceless!

2. Connect 4:

Build it up and watch out for the trap! Connect 4 is a tactical game where “you” aim to get four of your colored discs in a row. It’s compact, quick, and requires a bit of strategy.

3. Codenames:

Divide your family into two teams and compete to see who can guess the words their teammate is describing, trying to avoid words that belong to the opposing team. It’s a game of wit and vocabulary, and it’s compact enough for any RV cupboard.

4. Guess Who?:

“Is your person wearing glasses? Do they have a beard?” Narrow down the mystery face with yes or no questions. Guess Who? is a fast-paced game that’s been a family favorite for years.

5. Qwirkle:

Think of this as Scrabble, but with shapes and colors. It’s all about matching tiles and scoring points, and it’s perfect for those who prefer visual strategy games.

RV Game Night Tips from Steph:

  1. Storage Solutions: Use zip-lock bags or small containers to store game pieces. This saves space and ensures “you” don’t lose any parts during your travels.
  2. Portable Versions: Many board games have travel or mini versions. Opt for these to save on space.
  3. Outside Play: If “you’re” camped in a scenic spot, why not play outside? Lay down a mat, grab some snacks, and enjoy your game with a view.
