Here are some of our favourites, which we think make the perfect way to relax after a exhilarating day on the slopes.
Who wants to be a Millionaire?
This classic board game is fun for all the family. Based on the famous TV show where host, Chris Tarrant, puts players in the hot seat to ask them twelve questions and see if they can make it to a million. For lovers of general knowledge this game is great, with easier, multiple choice questions and helpful hints such as ‘ask the audience’ and 50/50 which makes it one that both children and adults will love. The game boasts over 2000 questions and you can take it it turns playing ‘host’ so everyone gets to join in. It’s easy to play in teams so you can help out the little ones too!
In the Logo Game you’ve got to be clued up on your products to play! Simply look at the logo and correctly guess the product or company of some of the UK’s most well known brands. Another great game to play in teams, this will keep the whole family entertained on those cosy evenings in your relaxing family chalet.
Sshh! Don’t Wake Dad!
This game is great for families with younger children and will sure to give you lots of laughs. The aim of the game is to reach the fridge and win the chocolate cake without waking Dad! Using the exemption cards, players can avoid pressing Dad’s alarm clock so as not to disturb him. With funny electronic sound effects such as Dad snoring, the clattering of pans, and the shriek of the cat as you tread on his tail, this is sure to have to everyone laughing the night away, and a game that the children will want to play again and again.
This is the perfect game for a night of silly family fun. Here players must attempt to put together an edible meal out on the place setting, but if you make a terrible combination that might cause a tummy ache, you’re in trouble! A hilarious game for all the family and the perfect way to unwind after a day on the slopes!
This is another fantastic food based game that is perfect for children aged 3+. Here children can learn all about food and cooking in this fast paced, action-packed game of family fun. During the game players must assist the chefs in the ‘crazy kitchen’ by helping them gather everything they need to make a delicious meal. The winner is the player who collects all their ingredients first and manages to correctly spin the spinner in order to be able to ‘cook’ it. This is the perfect family board game to work up an appetite before sitting down to your own, rather more sophisticated three course meal, with specially designed menus for children too!
All of these fantastic board games, plus many more are available in our family skiing chalets, and with games to suit all ages, and a wide variety of game types, you are sure to find something your whole family will enjoy.
