1. Aquarius

Aquarius is like Uno meets Elemental Dominoes, where players try to connect 7 of their secret elements on a central board. This game had a bit of controversy when it first came out in 1998 but we think all the rainbows are wonderful.

Qwirkle is one of the best family games on the market today. It’s like scrabble but with shapes and colors. Players choose 7 tiles at random from the bag and try to match up the shapes by making rows, either by color or shape. You score points for the number of pieces you are able to place . If you can place a piece completing a row of 6 different shapes say “QWIRKLE” and score double the points!
