Make Your Next Family Game Night FUN With Goliath Games @GoliathGamesUS #GoliathGamesUS
In this fast-paced era of technology, sometimes it feels as though it gets harder and harder to just sit down and have family time but thanks to companies such as Goliath Games, a funfilled night of laughter and good old-fashioned family fun is as close as your game closet-that is if you’ve stocked your game cabinet is filled with the great selection of games for kids of all ages.
As a mom, grandma and educator I know how important it is to carve out time each week to just sit down and be a family and there’s no better way to do it than with Family Game Night. Playing games together is the perfect way to connect with your child and open the doors to casual conversations, laughter, and fun.
Playing games together give students the perfect venue to practice those all-important math and critical thinking skills without them ever knowing that they’re going it but most importantly, it allows you to create ever-lasting memories that will last long after the game is put back into the box. My greatest memories of my children’s childhood were sitting around playing the classics board games with my kids and now that tradition has been handed down to the next generation. And let’s face it, is there anything better than the sweet sounds of a child’s laughter when they bring their game piece home as you hit another “skip a turn square”? It is the sound of that laughter and silliness that will stay in your heart long after the night is over and that you will remember in the years to come.

Thanks to our friends at Goliath Games, we got to try out a wide variety of the very best in the latest incarnation of today’s board games and the girls could not have been more thrilled. From such classics as “Greedy Granny” to “Googly Eyes” and puzzles from Shopkins, there is nothing better than seeing the eyes of a child light up not just from the game, but more because they have your undivided attention. Here’s a look at just a few of the games we were lucky enough to test out:
Greedy Granny– Take the treats without making a peep with Greedy Granny! Granny loves her sweets, but she’s not so great at sharing. As she snoozes, spin the treat wheel to see which sweet to swipe.
Be quiet…one wrong move will wake Granny up and send her teeth flying! Be the first player to collect one of each of her treats to win the game! For 2 to 4 players, ages 4 and up.
Googly Eyes- Googly Eyes is the hilarious family game that challenges your vision and leaves you googling for more! Put on the zany, vision-altering google eye glasses and start to draw while your team tries to guess what you’re drawing. Is that an igloo or a turtle?
A birthday cake or a fortress? Players take turns drawing and guessing, so everyone gets a chance to wear the glasses. The glasses come with three sets of lenses that range from mild changes to mind-blowing fun, so no one can see (or draw) straight–your vision will bounce off of the lenses. Googly Eyes is a fun twist on classic drawing games that lets players of different ages and skill levels compete on equal terms, since the goggles make it fun and challenging for everyone. Unlike any other drawing game you don’t need to be an artist, and the rules are simple. Just roll the die and move–the space you land on tells you which color lenses to use (easy, medium, or hard). Then pick a card, set the timer, and start drawing. If your team guesses correctly you get to roll and move again; if not, then you stay where you are on the board. The first team to reach Finish wins. For 4-16 players, ages 7 and up.
Paint-Station– Get ready to create with Paint-Sation! Each of these self-contained paint pods includes 1.4 ounces of paint. Simply touch your brush along the specially-designed bristles, and you’re ready to paint! But if you turn the pod upside-down, the paint won’t drip out! Moms and kids will agree – this paint is Paintsation-al!
Photo Pearls– Transform your photos into unique works of art with Photo Pearls! It’s super easy – all you have to do is upload your favorite photo to the easy-to-use Photo Pearls app to “pearlize” your photo. Then, start assembling your piece of art with the key provided and watch your picture emerge right before your eyes! A wonderful alternative to puzzles, Photo Pearls is a great stress reliever that will leave you with a show-stopping piece of art. For ages 7 and up.
Pop The Pig– Pop the Pig ® is an international preschool classic that is adored by millions of children–it’s the #2 best-selling new kids game of the last five years. Kids spin the spinner, pop a hamburger into the pig’s mouth, then pump his head. The more they pump, the more his belly grows until . . . pop! Kids love the suspense as they watch his belly grow; the player who makes his belly burst loses the game.
Shopkins– From every little girl’s favorite little shoppers, also including in our Goliath Game extravaganza box were a wide variety of Shopkin themed products. From the fun Shopkins Pop ‘N’ Race Game to the Shopkins World Vacation Game and the ever-popular Shopkins Happy Places Moving Day Board Game as well as Shopkin’s Surprise Packages and art supplies, it was every child’s idea of a perfect afternoon.
Make your next Family Game Night one filled with laughter, fun, and memories that will last a lifetime, give your family the gift of togetherness and make it a gigantic Goliath Game Night-your kids will thank you for it. Goliath Games are available at Amazon, Target, Walmart, ToysRUs and at Goliath Games!
