Family game night basket ideas

7 years 1 month ago #150976 by mconnery
I am in charge of putting together a "family game night" basket for our fall festival auction. I will be getting Apples to Apples, Farkle, and Pictureka along with a puzzle or 2 but I was wondering if anyone else has any favorite games (or any other fun things) that they would recommend including?

Also, my creativity is at a standstill right now and I can't come up with a catchy name for the basket - family game night has been used too much before and I'd like something different. Any ideas?

Thanks!

Bananagrams, or just about anything from GameWright.

Mconnery-

How about Quiddler and Scrambled States or America games -- both perfect sizes for baskets. Love bananagrams, mum24kids!

For names for the basket, here are some I have seen at auctions:

Old Fashioned Family Fun Basket

Memory Making Basket

Family Time Basket

Anyone have some more creative names?

Instead of using a basket, You could put the games in a bucket, and you have a Bucket of Fun.

We've also included in our Family Game Night basket a gift card to Hollywood Video, playing cards (Old Maid and a regular deck), microwave popcorn and movie candy.
