How Movies Influence Family Game Night

If you are part of a family that enjoys playing board games on a regular basis, you may always be on the hunt for the next game night hit. However, it can be difficult to find games that everyone loves that are also suitable for the entire family. Keep reading to discover how movies, particularly children’s movies, influence family game nights everywhere.

Just Challenging Enough To Keep Everyone Interested

A lot of games that feature popular themes or characters from movies tend to be either a special edition of a board game that already exists or is the same board game every time with no change to the format or inclusion of any special rules. However, there are times that that is not the case. With the game based off of the Skydance Animation movie, “Luck” for example, the game has a fresh concept while incorporating a lot of elements that are popular and recognizable among any age group. Keeping a game challenging enough to be interesting for all parties involved is quite the task, but it can be done wth enough dedication. Just do not make it so challenging that nobody wants to play it.

Feature The Whole Cast Of Characters

As much fun as it could be to play with something like a shoe or a colorful token, sometimes the incorporation of the characters from the movie is everything. The kids will be delighted at being able to recognize the characters and will be more invested in the game. The adults will be happy with the gameplay and with the fact that the kids are not getting bored and running off to do their own thing. Plus it is easier when you are trying to help younger players put their piece in the right spot. Instead of the next red space, for example, you can tell them to put it where their favorite character is holding a flower.

Full & Colorful

Simplicity is not always in the cards when it comes to designing a board game, and in some cases it can be the worst idea. Board games need a lot to look at, especially if there are really young players involved. Having a full and colorful game board and pieces can have everyone involved and engaged for hours on end. However, it is important to not make the game board so busy that people cannot find where they are supposed to go, or so colorful that it makes their eyes hurt. While it can be difficult to find that perfect balance, it is worth it to hunt for a game that does the balance justice, even if you end up having to pay a little more than you thought you might have had to.

Board games continue to be a popular form of entertainment in households around the world, and the silver screen does find its way onto a lot of board game shelves as a result. Keep this article in mind when you are on the hunt for your next board game so you can bring home the best family game possible.
