Floor is Lava

Not at all affiliated with the hit Netflix show but you should watch an episode and then play this. It's like Twister but with less physical contact between players. And there's a cooperative version!

Kids lose their minds over this game - they just have to find someone willing to play it with them. It's like spoons meets dodgeball.

5 Minute Dungeon

Work together to defeat the bosses. Each player picks a deck to play with and you frantically play cards to get to the boss card at the end of the stack and defeat it within the most intense 5 minutes of your life. You can ditch the 5 minute play time and just play for your own best time when playing with younger kids.

Family Charades

I love family games that are more about the experience than the end score, they're so much less likely to end in a fight. I highly recommend using the reverse charades cards, where the group acts out a clue and one person guesses.

Pandemic Rapid Response

Cooperative game! It's all the fun of Pandemic but compressed into a 20 speed game. It is an intense 20 minutes, you need to be paying attention the entire time or you'll lose. It gets less stressful after you've played a few times.
