This party game series will create endless fun and inside jokes you’ll repeat for years. From games where you draw silly images to trivia to games where you can share your best jokes, this is a witty and hilarious game that will bring out everyone’s competitive side while being family-friendly and chill. Grandma may need to borrow your iPad, though.

With cute graphics and fast-paced gameplay, this six-player game for the Nintendo Switch will have your family and friends addicted. There are a ton of mini-games to choose from, and most don’t take a lot of mechanical skills, so all age groups and skill levels can take part in the chaos.

Mario Party Superstars

Mario Party Superstars is the newest addition to this iconic party game series. You can choose a classic Nintendo character and either play a ton of mini games or jump into some popular maps from throughout the series’ history and compete for stars. While simple and silly, you may end up with some full-fledged rivalries so be warned if you plan to steal a star from your aunt.

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe

If you want to get some competition going, break out Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. You can have up to eight players, making it the perfect game for a big holiday party. All ages can enjoy this colorful take on a racing game, which can be a fun-filled item-heavy laughter-fest or an intense drifting-focused competition with a prize for the winner. Make it whatever you want!

Moving Out 2

With silly characters and exciting challenges, Moving Out 2 is the perfect game for family members who want to have a bit of fun. Chaos, if you will. This is a teamwork-based game that can have up to four players working together in a crazy environment to get some seemingly mundane tasks done. For example, you may need to help move a couch together. But all around you are whimsical creatures and moving obstacles.
