84. Our Family’s Favorite Games

Powered by RedCircle

Board games and card games can be such a great way to have some frugal fun! Best of all, once you’ve invested in a game, you can play it over and over and over again — without ever spending another dime!

In this week’s episode of the podcast, Jesse and I share our family’s top five favorite games. We had a very hard time narrowing the list down to just five, but we did it (well, we did mention a few other favorites at the end, because we just couldn’t help ourselves!)

The games we picked are ones we have played again and again and again. They are great for group games and most can be played with 4-6+ people.

In this episode, we also talk about Jesse’s 23&Me DNA test results (and why I don’t want to take the test!), a book recommendation from a reader, a video that had me smiling, and how Jesse is getting free coffee every day.

In This Episode: 

[00:33] Who’s ready to chat about our favorite games?

[01:15] Panera’s coffee is once again saving Jesse’s life. Listen in to find out how to get it FREE all summer!

[04:00] He also got his 23andMe results back and they were, um, interesting.

[07:35] What’s saving my life? Another YouTube video!

[09:20] Schindler’s List is also a book and it was recommended to us by one of our amazing listeners. 

[13:08] Who’s ready to talk about games?

[13:39] First up, Dutch Blitz, the card game — probably at the top of our list.

[15:07] Next is Double Ditto, a game my parents introduced us to.

[16:14] Another one is Ticket to Ride… which is Jesse and the kids’ favorite.

[18:36] I love Mad Gab — especially when played with a group.

[20:15] Last but certainly not least is Phase 10, a game we played a lot in our early marriage.

[22:06] A few more games that didn’t make our top 5 list.

[26:34] What are your favorite games?
