Our family is a big fan of playing games together. We laugh, we cheer, we tease, we play, and we have fun. Like a lot of fun. We recently amped up our family game night and turned it into a little bit of a party. A little Family Game Night Party with invitations and all.
I mean the invitations was stuck to the door and just for our boys, but they were impressed nonetheless.
I felt invitations and a Family Game Night Party were necessary because we were going to game it up and play Monopoly Plus on the Hasbro Game Channel. The Hasbro Game Channel is the place for family game entertainment on leading game consoles, featuring Hasbro's most popular games Monopoly, Risk, and Trivial Pursuit. Starting this fall, the Hasbro Game Channel will be available to download on Xbox One, video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, and PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system. All games will also be available for download individually on the Xbox 360 games and entertainment system from Microsoft and PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system.
We have previously played Hasbro's Family Game Night on our XBox 360, and we LOVE all of the games. Since we have a family game night addiction, we were pretty obsessed with Hasbro's Family Game Night. So we were really excited to play Monopoly Plus on the Hasbro Game Channel. Family games are in the genes. Both The Hubs and I both come from families who play games. We are gamers, you could say. Ha. Some of my favorite memories of my family include playing games. Now we are making memories with our own kids.
If a Family Game Night Party and some Monopoly Plus don't make memories, I don't know what will.
So before we got our Monopoly on, we needed to have a little party.
This little game night party was so easy to throw together. I gathered some snacks I had in the pantry.
I used some party stuff that I had hanging out in the closet, and I rounded up a few other party supplies from the store.
I used the monopoly property cards from our traditional game. I hung them up on the wall with some washi tape.
I found these cute mustache plates, reminiscent of Mr. Monopoly, at Target in the party section. I paired them up with a fun patterned napkin.
I even made it a special occasion and whipped up some red Kool-Aid. Man did that make the boys happy.
To get ready for our Monopoly Plus marathon we needed to load up on the snacks.
Fuel up dude. Fuel up.
I am pretty sure this face says I am ready Mom!
This one says Don't bother me I am eating.
Snacks and napkins in hand, we were ready to play.
To say that we enjoyed the game is an understatement. Monopoly plus brings all the traditional aspects of traditional Monopoly to life with a pretty awesome 2D board and colorful 3D graphics. Another cool thing is that Monopoly Plus let us choose our favorite House Rules to customize gameplay.We could all play since the game plays up to six players.
My boys love board games. They love video games. Basically that means that Monopoly Plus was a big winner.
Most family game nights are pretty casual and impromptu. We love it that way. However, it was fun to make a special occasion out of a family game night. My boys felt pretty special getting a Family Game Night Party. The party took hardly any effort on my part. The excitement and enjoyment they had was completely worth a little extra planning.
