Games for Rainy Days

Family Video Games

No one enjoys being stuck indoors when it’s raining, especially with nothing new or exciting to do. Rainy days are more enjoyable when you have a fun game to enjoy with loved ones!

To help, we’ve put together a selection of games to help bring the fun indoors and keep the family occupied in unfavourable weather. 

Make Some Noise

Bop It

Bop It is a game which tests your listening and coordination skills as you pay close attention to the different commands. Play solo or with friends and contend with the quick pace and tempo as you make it further along the game. Simply match the command with a twist it, pull it or bop it action, making sure your reactions are fast to stay ahead of the game.

Sometimes it’s fun to go back to basics and not over complicate things with too many rules. Hungry Hungry Hippos is a classic game that doesn’t grow old and will add some much needed entertainment to rainy days. Get ready for a feeding frenzy, where the aim of the game is to chomp on as many marbles as possible – whichever hippo eats the golden marble wins. It’s as simple as that!
