Hilarious Party Board Games for the Family!

A special thanks to my friends at Goliath Games for sponsoring today's conversation!
We are always looking for ways to keep the kids entertained and playing nicely with each other, especially in the Summer when the days feel eternal, instead of dozing off to a screen.  

One of our all-time favorite pastimes, that never fails to bring a smile or get a laugh out of us is playing one of the hilarious board games from Goliath Games. Since we are in a teeny apartment, we opted for a change of scenery, in the form of our outdoor lounge space. It was the perfect way for us to relax and get some beautiful sunshine in the process!
The two games we've been obsessed with lately are Greedy Granny and Build or BOOM. They are both winners, in my opinion because they are suspenseful, fun, and require a good amount of stealth in order to win. These games keep you on the edge of your seat and the rounds are quick (only taking a few minutes), which any parent can appreciate!
In Greedy Granny, the object of the game is to take Granny's cookies from her platter without waking her up, if you do she jolts awake sending her dentures flying.  It's quite surprising, I think I shouted the first few times I woke her:D! The first one to steal all four varieties of cookies from Granny's trey wins the game.
Madison thinks it's hilarious when Granny's teeth go flying and always loves to be the one to shove Granny's teeth back in her mouth. 
We've been playing Goliath games for years, what I like about them is that they make board games that really have a WOW moment. My youngest daughter is particularly obsessed with all of their games, these are the only games that she can play on-repeat without complaint (she usually outlasts all of us because she can't get enough of them)! 

Another thing that I appreciate about most of their games is that they are kid-powered and I don't have to worry about replacing batteries (because that is the bane of my existence)!

These gifts make great gifts because you can pull them right out of the box and start playing with them. I highly recommend these for school aged kids!

What I love the most about these cute Goliath Games is that my kids are always so engrossed by them that they forget all about their electronics (which is always a win in my book)! 

What are some of your family's favorite games?
