Family game night has been something that our crew has enjoyed for decades. Now that several of the crew are married and have their own children, they are now having family game nights too. We always have so much fun! My favorite games are the ones that all ages can play like the Top Trumps. Even if the little ones can’t read the facts and information about the topic, they can read their numbers so they can participate.
Everybody loves Top Trumps. They’re fast-paced, super competitive, and easy for anyone to pick up and enjoy. They’re also a great tool for teaching and learning; whether it’s teaching kids the size of jungle predators or introducing them to the history of the USA through the US Presidents pack. Whether you’re into Volcanoes or Star Wars, US History or Harry Potter, there’s a pack for you!
For 2018, four new decks of games are being released. They have a strong focus on STEM learning. The new decks for 2018 are: Sensational Science, Terrific Technology, Extraordinary Engineering and Peculiar Problems.

Pulling together all the greatest Marvel characters, as well as some of the lesser known heroes and villains, will have you recalling stories from Guardians of the Galaxy, the Avengers, Ant-Man and Spiderman.
You gotta love games that are also educational. Having fun is important, but fun and learning combined really elevates a game in my eyes. These decks are played sort of like the game of war. The one with the highest number on their card for a certain category wins all the cards for that round. The game is over when one person has all the cards.
In addition to playing the decks as games, each card is packed with information that has captured the attention of my little one. She has been reading all the cards in all our packs and coming back with questions. I have to admit that I have had to refer her to one of the older siblings more times than I care to think about but I am not up to date on my Marvel characters or the latest invention in this or that field of Science.
I think that these decks of cards are great. They not only encourage learning, they are easy to take with us and each stack comes in a plastic carry case to keep all the cards together when not in use.
So whether you are looking for new games for family game night or if you are looking for ways to encourage learning through the favorite characters of your little one’s heroes, Top Trumps has the deck for you. And if you are like me, you know, not current on all the players names in the super hero world, grab a deck and spend some time reading them. You will be surprised at how much information your little ones know and how excited they will be when you can talk to them about their interests.
