Maria goes live every other week, taking turns between her author Facebook page and her private Empowering Kids with Character Facebook group. For this week’s video, Maria shared some of her family’s favorite games and you can watch the video here.

Who doesn’t love games? I mean, I know there are some people that don’t, but I am like Maria – I LOVE games! I was so excited to hear she was going to be sharing some of her favorite games! Are you ready? Ok, here are two of the games she recommended in this week’s video!

  • Tenzi – with the original set, you can only play with 4 people BUT we were able to find this off-brand set on Amazon and you can play with 10 people! I am positive you can play with as many people as you want, as long as everyone has 10 dice (and each set of 10 is a different color). This is one of my son’s favorite games!! He also loves to introduce his friends to this game and it’s always a hit!
  • The Scrambled States of America Game – this game encourages players to quickly find a state that ends in a certain letter or find a state’s nearest neighbor. It’s challenging and also creates a learning atmosphere (but do your children even know?)!

Tell us – what are some of your favorite games? We want to know!
