Hi! My name is Paige, and I like games – outdoor games, group games, family games, just fun games. Because, hey, who doesn’t enjoy having fun and laughing with family and friends? I grew up in a big family (the oldest of six kids), we had lots of cousins, and playing games was always a big part of my childhood and family reunions. I was also very involved in a youth group during high school, where we often played fun group games to get to know each other and have a good time.

Over the years I’ve played dozens of games, and eventually I started keeping a list. That list on a Word doc on my computer eventually turned into this blog, where I thought that maybe I could share some of these games with others.

Another reason I started this blog is to help families have more wholesome, quality family time, because I especially believe that quality family time is essential to having a happy family. Read more about ways to strengthen families.

So if you’re planning a family reunion, throwing a party, entertaining bored kids, or just getting together with any group of people looking for some fun, I hope you can find the right game here.

If you have ideas for new games, comments, or suggestions, I’d love to hear them! You can contact me here.

Me and my family! My husband Joshua and our children Carson, Annelise, and Grace

As for just a little bit more about me (if you’re curious), I’m married to the best husband and dad in the world, who proofreads all my posts, is the webmaster and designer behind this site, and is my best friend and companion. We have three kids, and they keep us both busy and happy. My faith and religion are very important to my life. I studied English linguistics and editing in college and worked for a bit as a technical writer at an awesome educational children’s software company. Now I am a full-time mom. I’ve struggled with postpartum depression over the last few years, which has been at times very difficult. I’m grateful to friends, family, creative outlets like this blog, and mostly my husband for helping me through this tough trial. I often wish my life had more ice cream in it (can’t ever get enough ice cream), but I am very blessed and grateful for my life.

  1. So happy to have found your blog. You saved me with classroom parties this year. I’m excited to try some games at home with my family as well. Thank you for taking the time to share all of your great ideas!

  2. Dear Paige, I just wanted to say THANK YOU for all of these wonderful games! Your site is so cheerful and easy to navigate! I just became a mentor to an amazing 4th grade girl and I’m looking for fun activities we can do together. As I’m reading through your games I am really excited to share them with her during our meetings and also with my two boys (2nd and 4th grade) at home! I am also a substitute teacher and I am excited to have a new resource (back-up-plan) for those days when we have extra classroom time and not enough “work” to do! 🙂 Many blessings and thanks to you!!! Amanda

  3. This is a great site! I work with children at a church and am always looking for fun, simple, engaging game ideas. Yours is the best site I’ve seen! Thank you, congratulations, and keep it up the good work 🙂

  4. Greetings from Quebec, Canada! I’m really happy I came across your page- great ideas and a sense of family here. You should have a donations page! Keep up the great work!!!

  5. Thank you for the free word-lists! You saved me a lot of time!
    Having my son’s Birthday, this’ll be used for a Pictionary game for the parents!

  6. Game words: First love you game “Game Words”. I work at a drug detox and use the app to play game and relive stress. The patients always thank me for doing my group with your app. I noticed 2 weeks ago that when i tried using your app on my Iphone 6, when I try to change the difficulty level or the game i want to play it won’t let me. I think this started when one of the updates happened. I have tried to delete the game and reinstall it on my phone but nothing seems to fix this issue. I didn’t know if you were aware of this problem.I was wondering if you could look into this problem for me. Thank you for your great game and time with this.

  8. Hello Paige,
    Greetings from France, somewhere near a wood in Paris
    What a nice blog! I found you today, and I will try out your action Charades in my English class tomorrow (adults, first time! Up till now I’ve been teaching kids)

  9. Paige, as an English teacher I’ve found this website absolutely marvellous! Thank you so much for all the material and ideas. I’ll even play some of these games at home with my family. I’m sharing the site with all my colleagues. Have a great New Year!

  10. Hello Paige,
    I surprised a group of teenage robotics club members with your Science Lab Escape Room game this evening. Great job on the game. The kids really enjoyed it. Totally worth the $25. The clues were great, the graphics were great, the theme was great and you tied the whole game together nicely. Nice touch having the clues on the web sites. Very well written and thought out. Instructions were clear and easy to understand. I give you 5 stars!

  11. I love this website! I work in the UK, using play and creativity to help families and communities. I also just love playing games with my own family. There are quite a lot of games here that I haven’t heard of before, which is really fun, and there’s a such a strong sense of fun in the way you write about them. Thanks 🙂

  12. Hi Paige!
    I just discovered your website today and it is AWESOME! I’m a Speech-Language Pathologist who works with kids all day, and many of your games will be perfect for me to work on speech sounds and language at a conversational level. Thanks for taking the time to develop your Word doc into a blog that can help families and professionals alike! 🙂

  13. hi! I found your website last night and was hoping to purchase one of the escape room packages for two birthday parties this month – one party is a group of 10 year olds and the other party is a group of 8 year olds. What do you recommend?
