Around The Table Games Review and Giveaway

Spending time together as a family is a top priority in this house.  Finding games that the entire family can enjoy together can prove to be difficult.  Especially when your children are several years apart in age.  Around the Table Games open the lines of communication and provide hours of entertainment.  



When it comes to our children, communication is the key!  I love the fact that Around the Table Games easily opens the lines of communication and learning.  It's fun for the entire family and it's a valuable learning tool.  You learn things about every member of the family while laughing and having a great time.

Around the Table Games are fun, unique and portable.  Perfect for at home, in the car, at camp, while on vacation or at sporting events.  

They are small enough to take anywhere!  They offer a variety of games, perfect for any family.  


  • Family Talk 1 and 2
  • Buddy Talk
  • Teen Talk
  • Grandparent Talk
  • Camp Talk
  • Family Tin: Parent Talk and Grandparent Talk

There are also Bilingual versions of Buddy Talk and Family Talk.



Camping is one of our favorite family activities.  I chose the Camp Talk to share with my children, ages 7 and 10.  It is attached to a flashlight and carabiner clip that includes 50 camp related questions.  

Camp Talk would be perfect for summer camp or family camping trips.


Sample Camp Talk Questions:
  • If you designed a camp for kids, what would it be like?
  • What’s the funniest or most unusual nickname for a counselor you’ve heard?
  • If you wrote your own camp song, what would it be about?

You can see by the photos below just how much FUN my kids had playing this game for the very first time.  After all,  picture is worth a thousand words and so is a BIG smile!














    WIN IT:

     ONE lucky Being Frugal and Making it Work reader is going to receive an Around the Table Game of their choice

    I like the camping one. My family and I enjoy going camping so this would be an ideal game for us to play around the camp fire!

    I like the Double Deck Tin Family Talk & Grandparent Talk. My kids are still young & talk to us but it is always good to work on keeping the lines of communication open.

    This would be a great game to take to a restaurant to kill time! I think I'd choose Grandparent Talk.
