We will be travelling for six weeks over the upcoming holiday season so I am stocking up on family card games to take with us, knowing that each time we are stuck waiting in an airport or the kids are tired, cranky and bored I will be so thankful for the distraction!
This list of family card games features not only some of our existing favourites but also suggestions collated from more than 200 suggestions from followers of Childhood 101. It nicely complements our other family friendly games lists – 25 fun, family board games and 15 games for preschoolers and kindergarteners.
15 Fun Family Card Games
Think quick is this fact acting game all about the order of the food chain! Some cards will be “eaten” while others can be saved! Who will be crowned the winner of Chomp? Great for ages 6 and above!
How quickly can your eyes adjust to the various sizes on the cards to try and find a match? Dobble will challenge your eyesight and your quickness so be prepared to look fast to find the match! Great for ages 6 and up.
7. Snappy Dressers
An extremely unique card game where literally every single card can be played on top of one another, you just have to figure out how and why they are connected. Snappy Dressers is great for ages 7 and above.
8. Exploding Kittens
Seriously fun and perfect for cat lovers, Exploding Kittens will have everyone in your family laughing and scratching their head. While the name sounds silly, this game does take some planning and strategy! Suitable for ages 7 and above.
