Family Game Night Part 3: The Showdown

Family Game Night Part 3: The Showdown

It’s time for part three in our fam­ily game night series! Last week, we shared a col­lec­tion of deli­cious snacks and recipes for game night. Now we’re ready for the big show­down! We invited over a fam­ily of friends for a lit­tle friendly com­pe­ti­tion and wanted to share all the awe­some fam­ily fun we had.

Family Game Night Part 3: The Showdown

Our friends Sun­shine and Kevin Black brought their cutie pie kids over to chal­lenge our crew. After some stretch­ing and a pep talk, we munched down on some seri­ous snacks and started the play­time. The older boys loved adding some tiger stripes for extra ferocity.

The kids were really excited to have their best pals over to pay the Wii U and enjoy the com­pe­ti­tion. One of my favorite aspects of the game Nin­tendo Land is that the matches are all fun but fairly short. That way, the change ups could stay fast and furi­ous. Every­one always felt like they were involved.

We split up the couches into makeshift bleach­ers for the big night. It’s easy to for­get how much room your liv­ing room has until you move all your fur­ni­ture and really start to play. The sta­dium seat­ing added some great inten­sity to the night.

They had a ton of fun in Nin­tendo Land as they cheered on their broth­ers and sis­ters! Most of the games require a good amount of team work and with it being so cold lately, we were happy to have a nice warm night inside with some snacks.

Mur­phy was intent on stay­ing safely hid­den while the oth­ers ran around Nin­tendo Land try­ing to find him. The Wii U Pad con­troller has its own screen so hide-and-seek games are super fun. The find­ers use the tv and the hiders just use the pad screen. Genius!

All that fun with the Wii U makes you thirsty, so Mur­phy slurped up a berry smoothie. After he pow­ered up, it was back to the Bat­tle Royale! We had so much fun with our friends and hope they’ll be back soon for another awe­some fam­ily game night.
