Frugal Game Night
The great part about having a family game night is that it’s a very frugal way to enjoy quality time with your family. It’s even a great way to enjoy not only your family, but also your close friends.
How To Keep Game Night Frugal
Family game night doesn’t have to be expensive. You don’t have to run out and buy each of the games on this list. Consider borrowing a game from a friend or asking for one of these games as a Christmas gift from your in-laws.
One year, we had our Bible study group over for a Christmas party. Our Christmas parties always seem to include playing the White Elephant Game and this particular year we had a theme for the gifts – to re-gift a family game that you didn’t play anymore. It was a blast! We had so much fun stealing games from each other and then we all got to go home with a new family game night game!
Bargain Ways To Enjoy New Family Games
- Find games at a thrift store.
- Look for games at garage sales.
- Buy used games on VarageSale, Mercari, or Facebook Marketplace.
- Ask for a new game as gifts for birthdays, or Christmas.
- Borrow from a neighbor or friend.
- Make your own games.
- Play virtual games.
- Host a Family Game Night Swap with a group of friends, and trade games.
- Find a Buy 2 Get 1 Free Sale (Target does this a couple times a year). It’s a great time to stock up!
