    Games evening entertainment

    When in Aruba and it is after dinner........the troops are all settled in but still to early for bed.


    LCR a dice game is always fun and there is an opportunity to win $ or when playing with kids, candy or candy and $

    FARKLE is also a dice game that is much fun. We have not played for $ or candy but I am willing.

    Do you have any suggestions for family fun games?

    We're big Yahtzee fans. Easy to play and even the little kids get in on the fun. Love playing LCR for $

    I like monopoly. Or a game called "mens erger je niet" - something to get everyone involved is charades. enjoy the games.

    Our family's favorite games are Uno (it's a card game) and Jenga (you'll have so much fun). These games are great for spending time with children and adults.

    Games in Aruba?
    We saw a few families at LaCabana and at Costa Linda, poolside playing what looked like Rummikub.

    Families with younger kids, it is probably a great idea to pack a few small games to have in the room for after dinner.
    Not much action for kids in the evening.

    We played a lot of Rummy (cards) on our last trip since it was during the pandemic and we stayed in more. We love Uno too but its not as fun with just 2 people.
    The best trip is the next trip. Anxiously waiting to book something.

    I love Rummikub! When we go to Florida to visit my sister, we play Rummicub while enjoying our happy hour drinks.

    We like to bring Phase 10 when we have a group. My husband and I love trivia, so we always bring a stack of trivial pursuit cards for the evening when we sit on the patio and just read them to each other.

    "Cards Against Humanity" is, without a doubt, the funniest game on the planet. Not for kids.
