Fun Games For Young Children

Posted on August 9, 2021 at 9:06 am

The truth is, any parent wants to make their children’s lives fun and enjoyable. But how can we do that in the sense of games with younger children who may not be able to play them properly?

Well, let’s think about it, what is fun for us is completely different to what is fun for children. For us, what is most enjoyable is playing the game correctly, and competing to win. But for children, this does not matter at a young age. What is enjoyable for them is completely different. They much prefer being creative, they prefer just messing around and attempting to play the game in the way they think is right.

So, at such a young age, to make any gaming times enjoyable for children, think about them. Try to make it more enjoyable for them rather than yourself. Let them come up with their own games for you all to play. Let them make up their own rules and you go along with the fun. This will not only be enjoyable for the young child but will become enjoyable for the family as you will see the joy on their faces.

Alternatively, if you do want to have a competitive games night that is fun for all of the adults, there are ways you can still do this. Consider buying your children an alternative game, one that is more suitable for their age range. This way you can play your game correctly and competitively whilst your children are still able to have fun with a game suitable for them.

Finally, just remember it is not always about the adults having fun. Changing the game slightly to suit the younger participants needs is ok. You can change the rules. Just because rules are there does not mean you can’t change them to suit your own needs. So change the rules and have fun!

We all know families, you can’t help but be competitive with each other. There is nothing anybody loves more than beating their family at any game around. Any family game night in our household is always made into a competition. So, what are some of our favourite games to play as a family?

Mario Kart
A staple game to play in our family is Mario Kart. This is one that the whole family can get involved with. It is one of our favourite console games to play. With you being able to race against each other on a large variety of tracks.

Another popular game in our household is Monopoly. This board game is a classic to play amongst families across the nation. With you being able to compete with each other on owning the board and being the last player standing. This game can last a while and will not be suitable for younger players due to difficult rules and small pieces.

With summer fast approaching, sports are a great game to play as families for getting out into the sunshine. Some of our favourite sports to play include football or running races. If you have younger children it can be fun to do egg and spoon races or obstacle courses.

Quiz Nights
Another game you can take part in as a family is quiz nights. One option is hosting your very own quiz night, where you create your own questions and compete for a prize. Another option is finding an online quiz, which can be found in console game form or live quizzes. These will bring out the competitiveness in every family.

All of these are great options for a family game night. Let us know if you have any other games that you enjoy for family game nights.

A Guide To Among Us – Imposter

Posted on February 12, 2021 at 3:55 pm

Over the past couple of months, we have been looking deeply into a worldwide popular game known as Among Us. So now it is about time that we take a deeper look into the role of the Imposter, sharing with you a guide on how to be the best imposter you can be!

To begin, the role of the Imposter is to kill as many crewmates as they can without being caught out. To win the game you must kill enough crewmates before they complete all of their tasks or discover who the imposter is!

Being A Great Imposter
The time has come, where we share our secrets on how to become a great imposter. This is the role everyone wants, and when you get it you need to be the best you can be. Follow our tips to watch yourself win every game!

1- Fake Tasks
The best way to be an effective imposter is by faking that you are doing tasks. This is easier said than done if you are new to the game. Essentially you just need to hang around the area where tasks are normally placed, so other players assume you are completing them.

2- Venting
Venting is an excellent way for the imposter to move around the map quickly and effectively. This is good for if you have just killed another player, or if you want to sneak up on a player. You must remember the vents will move when you are in them so people may become suspicious.

3- Moving The Blame
If people begin to suspect that you are the imposter, you need to create your own story that is believable allowing you to shift the blame onto another player. If you are a great storyteller this will work in your favour, if others believe you over the player being truthful.
