1. Cluedo Harry Potter
Cluedo Harry Potter is a variant of the classic Cluedo. Thus, the material is entirely revisited and based on the Harry Potter theme with the addition of revolving rooms, secret passages, trapped doors, and even spells! And the game contains 1 board, 6 identity cards, 6 counters, 29 Help cards, 32 Evil cards, 21 Mystery cards, 1 detective notebook, 40 Pathfinder tokens, 6 Suspect tokens, 6 Object tokens, 1 confidential case, 1 green die, 1 black die, 1 sticker sheet.
In this edition, a student has gone missing at Hogwarts; the game’s object is to find the person responsible for the disappearance, the place, and the spell or object used in the disappearance. Players move through Hogwarts Castle, the Forbidden Forest, or Malfoy Manor. In addition, you must thwart the dark forces that want to make you lose the fairy dust.
2. Just One
Just One is a cooperative word deduction game. That is, all players play to achieve the best score! Together, they have to make one of the players, called the “active player”, guess a mystery word by writing a clue on their easel.
The player who has to guess the word keeps their eyes closed while the other players write a clue on their easel. However, the objective is to choose an original clue, different from the other players. If there are duplicates, all the pegs with the same clue will be deleted before the active player can see them.
At the end of the game, the scores are calculated according to the number of mystery words found. Therefore, the player who guesses will have fewer clues to find the mystery word! This game is cooperative in the sense that you must try to find as many cards from the deck together to win.
3. Family Trivial Pursuit
Trivial Pursuit Family is a general knowledge game. This new version allows the whole family to learn and make many discoveries while having fun, thanks to its 2400 questions/answers. The principle remains the same as the classic version.
The goal is to be the first to fill in your pie chart by answering the 6 categories of questions correctly and obtaining the corresponding pie charts (triangle). We all have memories of endless games of Trivial Pursuit because the questions were very/too difficult. This is not the case with this version: it contains cards suitable for children and other cards ideal for adults. So you can play a game in only 30 minutes.
Werewolf is a game played with a large family, ideal when cousins are around. The game’s goal is to mimic the life of a village one night when werewolves decide to attack the villagers. You need enough people to play the inhabitants of a village, including villagers, a werewolf, a witch, a fortune teller…
Debates about the identity of the potential werewolves ensue. The game ends when the villagers unmask all the werewolves or the opposite happens: all the villagers are eliminated. It is a game that stimulates creativity, memory and creates a sense of community.
Classic, timeless, a family companion since 1935, Monopoly is a board game for children and adults. It develops patience, strategy, business sense, and all that in a good mood. Several versions have been published over the years, but the principle remains more or less the same.
Always ranked among the best board games, this board game puts you in the shoes of a real estate expert: buying, renting, selling will turn your fortune in a few hours. The game consists of a 40-square course, land that you can acquire, and on which you can build houses and hotels to rent to passers-by. The games can be endless, much to the delight of the family.
