Do you want to find fun ways to spend quality time with your family?

Whether you are thinking about playing games with your kids or already plan regular game nights, our family game night challenge is an excellent way to hang out together.

Family Game Night Challenge

What is the family game night challenge?

It's a free challenge to encourage and inspire playing games together as a family. Participants may join our Positive Family Gaming group where we will discuss different types of games and exchange family game night ideas.

Participating is a great way to create a regular family game night or get back into planning them. Connect with your kids while helping them build skills at the same time!

What is the time commitment for the family game night challenge?

That's up to you! This challenge is self-paced, so you can work through the checklist in the way that works best for you. We suggest at least once a week for about 20-30 minutes.

What games are needed to complete the family game night challenge?

No specific games are required to take part in this challenge. There are themes (like travel or animals) and types of games listed, such as a card game or dice game. There are lots of different board games and video games that can fit for each square on the challenge printable.

This makes the challenge accessible to more families because you can use games you already own. You can even make up your own games!

We will be providing suggestions and recommendations as well in case you want to add something new to your gaming rotation.

We are a family of gamers. Mom (Darcy/Syrana) and Dad (Brian/Sideshow) have been gaming for as long as they can remember back when you only had a joystick to use and saved your games to cassette tapes.

They've been gaming together since they met in 2002. Sometime after 2006, they both started playing World of Warcraft and did that for many years. They started this blog, originally called Sideshow & Syrana which has now transitioned to the new Stay-At-Home Gamers site, while keeping all of the original content.

Starting in 2010, two more gamers came along (now known as Princess Boo and Mr. X) and they are now old enough where they both enjoy playing games and watching others play games. They are both excited to have others to watch them play their favorite games. Come along with us and let's enjoy these games together!
