A family favorite card game involving an auto race. Players play in teams and have to try to thwart the other team or teams as well as moving their own car along the road. Lots of fun!

Set Card Game

Review:

My sister was the family Set-meister when I was growing up, and anybody else was just a distant second. In fact, she usually managed to beat the rest of us put together! Despite routinely getting my butt whipped, however, I still enjoy this game. It’s not only fun, it’s great for building visual perception skills.

Set is also fairly flexible. We play standard rules with older kids, teens, and adults, and simplified rules with younger kids, such as having to match only one of the four different factors (number, color, shape, and shading). It can also be played solo.

My rating: (4 / 5)

I’ve heard great things about the original Fluxx, but this version specifically for families also gets good reviews and sounds like it might be more appropriate for us, since our kids are still young.

Our go-to family card game. Similar to rummy and simple enough to be playable by kids, complex enough to be fun for adults. My parents are on their third deck by now!

If Spot It! Alphabet is as fun as the original Spot It! it seems like a great way to help teach the letters.

A fast paced card game that builds visual perception and was a huge hit with my daughter in particular. There are several different variations.
