Top 5 Games To Take On Holiday
We’re about to embark on our first European holiday away this year. We are travelling with six friends to the Algarve for some well-deserved rest and relaxation in the sunshine. As there’s quite a few of us going away, we always take some games with us to play in the evenings. We usually go to a villa or a cottage, so it’s lovely to sit out in the warm balmy evenings and chat, laugh and play games. Here my top 5 games to take on holiday and some of the ones I’ll be taking this year.
I love card games and Uno is one of my favourites. The idea of the game is to get rid of your cards the quickest and it’s about matching colours and numbers and utilising power cards so you can do this. It’s a great game for kids and for adults.
This was a card game my other half bought me for Christmas. The playing cards in Exploding Kittens are really well humoured and the graphics on them are great. The aim of the game is to avoid drawing the exploding kitten card out of the pack. It’s really addictive.
Good Cop, Bad Cop
This was a game one of my friends brought along to our mini break to Norfolk last year. Good Cop, Bad Cop is where the players are randomly sorted into goodies and baddies and your aim is to take out the opposite team’s chief, which is either the Kingpin or the Agent, depending on whether you are bad or good. We played for hours and it was so much fun.
This is an age old favourite with us. I bought my Jenga set from a bootfair about 10 years ago and it has come away with us ever since. We have a few rule benders in our midst, so we all have to sit about a metre from the table so no one can be accused of wobbling the table.
This is made by the same people are Uno but is a much longer card game. You have to win 10 hands before the other person to be the Phase 10 champion. Each hand you must win is made up of different criteria. It’s addictively frustrating as often you can be so close when the other person wins. I’m currently the undefeated champion of Phase 10, but who knows what will happen on this holiday?
What do you think of my top 5 games to take on holiday? What other games do you take on holiday with you? Are there any there that you might consider for your next holiday?
