We have determined the secret to a good game for our family is it must adhere to a few criteria. First it must be age-appropriate (duh). Second, it must allow for at least 4 players so no one is left out (more if possible). Third, it must not be boring for the adults! This past Christmas we found one that fit the bill: Magic Feather by Wiggity Bang!
Aptly described as “A Nutty Rumpus of a Game for Kids & Families”, this game is much more than just rolling dice and moving around a board. In Magic Feather, you play an animal of your choice and race around the neighborhood doing silly tasks and answering wacky questions.
Make your way across the board trying to collect your Magic Feather and to the end spot where you then must complete a challenge on the Story Card to win. But along the way are movable nutty Crows that will block your path. Fortunately the board is not linear, so there are multiple paths you can choose to move on as you make your way through the neighborhood.
Intended for ages 7 and up, I can see allowing players as young as 5 or 6 enjoying the silliness of the game play. The package supports up to 8 players, so if you have an larger family or a family gathering planned, this would be a good solution to keeping everyone entertained. Pick up a copy on Amazon for around $15 shipped!
