Restaurant Games - May 2020

We like to go to restaurants and play games. Like a Panera or coffee shop, we don't this at a steak house or something, we're super classy people (obviously). It's tricky because they need to be portable, quiet, and somewhat reasonable to play outside. Here are some winners!

Spot it Jr.! Animals

Spot the matching animal first! An ideal game when you're sitting outside a restaurant with a bored child and want to avoid caving to screen time. It's super portable and easy to play with toddlers but ages well, my older kids still like playing it.

Get rid of your cards first while playing them in ascending or descending order. Very compact with quick rounds of play, it's a card game though so be careful in windy conditions.

Red7

Highly strategic game where you are trying to be the last person standing. You can play your cards as a new rule or as part of your hand. We discovered that this is not a lake game for people who want to have a drink and relax, this is definitely a thinking game. We love it!
