Once settled in, we have a great suggestion of games for your entire crew below.



Enjoy a Simple Hand of Uno


Looking for a family-friendly card game for the younger audience? Deal out a game of Uno! Uno is a simple game where you match your hand of cards to the card dealt in front of you. If you don’t have a color or number card that matches, keep drawing until you do. To try to beat the players next to you, strategically use cards like draw 2, wild cards to switch colors, draw four, or reverse! Once down to one card, call out “Uno.” This signals to the other players that you will go out the next round if you can and they should try to get rid of any of their high point cards like wild cards. If the player does go out, other players have to count how many points they have left in their hands.


Declare War with a Game of Risk


Want to tackle a game with a bit more moving pieces? Consider playing Risk. The objective of the game is to conquer the world by taking over all the territories on the board. To set up the game, you will section out a designated number Infantry to each player depending on how many players are participating (each gameplay can have 2-6 players). Once players are giving their initial territory and infantry, players declare “war” on each other by battling it out with 3 red dice (the attacker) and 2 white dice (the defender) until a territory is won.

Try out your Vocabulary with Taboo


Don’t want to play a game involving numbers and math? Test out your vocabulary with Taboo. In this game, players try to get teammates to guess the word on their card without using any of the words listed on the card that helps describe the word. For example, if the word is “Pink” the cardholder can’t say the word “color or flamingo,” but they could say something like “favorite starburst.” If you use one of the words on the card you will be buzzed and will lose the turn. Players will keep the cards they guessed correctly and the team with the most cards wins!


Test your Knowledge with Trivial Pursuit


Have a minimum of 2 players? Trivial Pursuit is a great board game where the winner is determined by the player’s or team’s ability to answer general knowledge and popular culture questions. The great thing about this game is you can purchase the board game or create your own questions catered to your friend and family’s knowledge base. Want to challenge each other about the last decade? Create questions that ask about popular tv shows and famous actress Instagram posts over the last 10 years. 


Play a Game of Pool at the Club House


Looking to play games that don’t come in a small cardboard box? Our community amenities feature a relaxing jacuzzi, a brand new tennis court, a state-of-the-art fitness center, and a clubhouse with a pool table. Perfect for a one on one game or a couples game, Pool is a great game for all ages. Rack up the balls and dive into the common game of Eight Ball. After someone breaks the rack and pockets a ball of either stripes or solids, each team will try to pocket all their designated balls (stripes or solids) into the pockets before the other team. During the game, players that continue to make the pocket can keep going until all their balls and the 8 ball is gone. Did the ball miss the pocket? Teams must then alternate every shot missed.
