By the end of the busy week, our whole family looks forward to a relaxing weekend. Fridays (and sometimes Saturdays!) are for games and homemade pizza. It’s like we hibernate together to rejuvenate our energy from the week. Our closet is filled to the brim with games, yet we are always looking for new ones to add to the collection!
When we went to Frankenmuth right before Christmas, we packed two new additions for our hotel room game night: Wazabi & Yogi. They’re great games for the whole family and fun, yet they don’t take all night. Perfect for us! Both games are available on Amazon or at your local game store.
Wazabi is a dice game with cards. Every player starts out with 4 dice and 3 cards. Each card gives you a game move, but you can only use them if you roll a certain die. I will admit: Wazabi does deliver it’s claim as being a “spicy” game. The girls are so funny because they get SO into retaliation against each other so they can get rid of all of their dice. If they’re not going against each other, I’m their prime target.
Yogi is great because it can be played as a family or alone..and it forces you to get up and moving. Each card will give you a move to either hold a card a certain way (like between two fingers) or twist your body a certain way. The best part: you have to keep the moves from allll of the cards you’ve drawn throughout the game. This is not a quiet game–it gets pretty hilarious! I’ve even used the fun cards to stretch for a break from working at my desk.
For game nights, we always love to have a snack or two–usually popcorn. Lately, I’ve been making our coconut oil popcorn with the Trader Joe’s Everything But the Bagel Spice and Ranch…it’s a salty sweet combo to die for!
For the popcorn:
- 1/2 cup popcorn kernels
- 1 Tablespoon coconut oil
- Ranch Popcorn salt & Trader Joe’s Everything Spice
After popping the popcorn in the coconut oil, season with the spices to taste.
