My kids love to play games and are always asking to have family game nights. However, because of our busy schedules during the school week and sports activities that fill our weekends, we don't get to do them as often as they’d like. Last week they were off school for the entire week for Thanksgiving Break so I knew it would be the perfect chance to spend some quality time together playing one of our favorite family games…Hedbanz by Spin Master Games.
This game is geared towards kids ages 7 and up, but even our 4 year old can get in on the fun. The basic idea of the game is that each player wears a headband and a card is placed on the headband. Everyone can see the card except the person wearing it. It could be a food like pizza, an animal like a cat or even a household object like scissors. By asking questions you try to figure out clues that help you guess what your card is.
For our game night we gathered around the table in our playroom and immediately the laughs began. It’s so funny to see what everyone’s cards are and we love laughing and encouraging each other as we try to guess what we are.
Some of the objects seem so simple to the others that are seeing it, but when it is on your head sometimes it is the hardest to figure out.
I would definitely recommend Hedbanz to any family looking for a game that is fun for all ages and one that provides ample smiles all around. Out of a closet full of games this is always the one we go for! It was so nice for us to have an evening with no TV, no electronics and no whining…just good old fashion family fun.
I feel like we are always going in a million different directions so it was really heart warming for us to all be focused on the same thing, having fun, bonding as a family and making sweet memories. Even our dog, Walker, got in on the fun last night!
Spin Master Games, the creator of Hedbanz, also offers other family fun game options like Quelf and Would You Rather. In the game of Quelf players use creativity and imagination to answer crazy questions and perform silly stunts. Would You Rather is a game full of dilemmas and difficult choices. It asks bizarre, imaginative, hilarious and sometimes disgusting questions.
Hedbanz and the other games by Spin Master are available at retailers like Amazon, Target, Wal-Mart, Kmart and Toys R Us.
