Toys “R” Us, Hasbro and Duracell Family Game Night and a $50 Toys “R” Us Gift Card Giveaway!

*I received compensation for this post. All my opinions are my own and not swayed by outside sources.*

For my family, there is truly nothing better than sitting down and having a fun filled Family Game Night. Each Friday night, we pick out our favorite games and set off to play for hours at a time. Some of my favorite games that we play are from Hasbro. Hasbro is a Rhode Island company, so of course I will support whatever games they come out with. We tend to buy our family games at Toy “R” Us and power them up with Duracell batteries. We buy Duracell all the time, because in my opinion, you can never have too many batteries.

In the world of technology, sometimes it is great to just unwind with a fun filled family game night. While Family Game night is all about having “fun,” it also promotes essential skills, helps kids build self-confidence and creates lasting memories. This past Friday night, we had family game night with two of my all time favorite games, Operation and Simon. These games are absolute classics and I was so happy to introduce them to my children.

DSC_0480My kids seriously sat on our living room floor for hours playing these two games. I could not believe how good Hayley was at Simon. She even beat me and her dad! Operation was another fun game and even Zane enjoyed it, despite the fact he wanted the doctor’s nose to buzz. It was the perfect way to cool off inside and get the whole family involved.DSC_0482

This summer, be sure to take advantage of the beautiful weather outside, but at night, do try a fun filled family night with great Hasbro games available at Toys “R” Us. Make sure to stock up on Duracell batteries, so you will never have to stop playing your games. It is so important to carve out family time and there is no better time, than this summer. Start a family tradition of playing games and you will see how interested your kids will be. There is never a better time than the present to have Family Game Night!DSC_0485

Toys “R” Us is the perfect one stop shop to pick up your favorite summer games. When you’re at Toys “R” Us, don’t forget the batteries though! They ‘re often required, but not included with the game, so you’ll want to have plenty of fresh batteries, like Duracell Quantum, on hand. Did you know that Duracell Quantum batteries:

o Have Hi-Density Core™ Technology for unbeatable long-lasting power

o Only battery with PowerCheck™. Instantly check your power level at any time

o Have Duralock Power Preserve™ Technology. Guaranteed for 10 years in storage

Win it: One winner will receive a $50 Toys “R” Us Gift Card and Duracell Quantum Batteries to start your game night.

  51. Stephanie Bondlow says

    My version of the ideal family game night is me, my hubby, my 7 children, just playing good games like Scrabble and Uno, and Checkers, and just laughing and having good family memories. Chips and Dip is a must.

  52. Tiffany Hartwell says

    My ideal game night would be a game of monopoly where someone doesn’t flip the board over! haha

  53. Angela Kinder says

    We already have the ideal game night (for my family at least): 2 different games, plenty of tea (since our family doesn’t drink a lot of soda), snackables, and fun music! We rarely turn on the TV while we play games so that we don’t get distracted.

  54. Debra S says

  57. Sara says

    We haven’t really introduced our son to board games yet because he is so young, but I think candy land will be his first and that will be fun. We will probably order some pizza and make a night of it.

  62. Candace B says

    My ideal family game night would be finding a game everyone likes to play. With my children being different ages, it can be difficult to find games that are not too easy for one and too challenging for the other. So, it would be ideal to find a game that offers enough to both children where neither is frustrated or bored with the game.

  63. Melissa says

    My son’s favorite game is Sorry and I can’t wait to introduce him to other classics like Life and Monopoly.

  64. Christina Strapp says

  71. Lacey j says

    Ideally playing games together (whatever ones the kids wanted!) with snacks, and a movie, hot chocolate and snuggles before bed

  77. Jessica A. Nirri says

    I love board games a lot but hardly ever play .. Maybe every 6 months .. Cuz I’ve got no one to play with.. My daughter Is almost four and its just her and I .. My mom works a lot and my brother is a teen.. My grandma would play but most games we have are not much fun for just two people .. My mom and my bro an I used to play white a bit we would play “Life” “family feud the board game” the older one like 80′s or 90′s version I adore that game and “scatagories” and more but these days she has no time. As a kid my grandma and grandpa and I would play a few times a week a number of diff board games.. From German board games (German grandma) to card games like “canasta” and “uno” board games like “clue” “monopoly”,” operation” “bed bugs” and many more.. I just got four games for free about a year ago all pieces still there too ! I’ve never played any of them though .. But if I won this I would make my mom play and my brother and I would keep them For my daughter and I to play ! I adore board games and a perfect game night .. A fantasy game night actually .. would be my grandpa visiting from heaven , my daughter so my GPA could meet her.. My amazing grandma , my dad and me .. Playing at GMA’s table a number of different games .. Spending hours playing different games .. Laughing.. Reminiscing.. Making jokes .. Eating .. Drinking a little too much by the end of the night .. Wow that would be fun ! If I won this I would put it to good use and mark a weekly game night on the calendar..!

  78. Danielle johnson says

    Homemade mini pizzas everyone can make followed by our favorite board game with some snacks then a real good treat for dessert then a movie.

  79. Ann Fantom says

    My ideal family game night is a night where everyone would win at least one game and there would be no crying for the losers!

  80. Deb Ford says

    To make it perfect we’d need some take out food so I don’t have to cook, and a night where all the kids are free so that we can spend quality family time all together.

  81. Rebecca Orr says

    Games that make me think and/or laugh. I like trivia games like trivial pursuit. And word games like Scrabble and Boggle. I also like games like Apples to Apples because it makes me laugh. My fiancée likes card and dice games. He taught me to play canasta a few weeks ago and we have been enjoying it.

  82. Terri Moore says

    my ideal game night would include my family and some friends. lots of good food and laughter. it would teach us how to have fun even if we lose!

  83. Dawn says

    My ideal family game night would be a family friendly video game and a big bowl of popcorn! I have a teenager and a 2yo, so finding a board game they both like and the toddler could play could be challenging

  84. Carlene R. says

    My ideal family game night would me me, my husband and my children all sitting together around our fireplace, eating junk food and taking turns playing every family members favorite game. We used to do this regularly before we had to sell our home and move in with family while my husband is looking for steady work. Now we never seem to have “alone family” time because we have other family members around always. Not that that is a bad thing, but sometimes you just want to be with your family.

  85. Nesca Crespo says

    I think an easy game to play with the kids that they enjoy is Monopoly. Everyone pretty much gets the concept and the game can last a while. It also teaches them how to deal with money and counting.

  86. jenn giannetto says

    my ideal family game night would include the kids version of monopoly. the adult version has always been my favorite game and i would love to introduce my son to monopoly

  87. polly says

    We always love having Game Nigh when our 5 year old grandson spends the night. He would play games all night long!

  88. says

    My ideal family night. A crock pot dinner or take out so I am not stuck in the kitchen cleaning up or cooking. Everyone sitting in the family room around the coffee table playing a team game. That way, the young ones have a change of winning and we don’t have to dumb it down. Real fun!@

  89. Ashley C says

    My ideal game night would be lots of homemade baked goods, chips and dip, and everyone getting to pick their favorite game for us to play


  90. Angela P. says

    Mine would be with a lot of yummy snacks, ordering takeout so Mommy doesn’t have to cook and just having a good time with my family playing favorite childhood games.

  91. Kara Griggs says

    My ideal game night would be to play games with the kids like Sorry, trouble, operation. We could eat candy and popcorn.

  92. Lori L says

    My family loves playing Apples to Apples. Its great because there is not a lot of set up and all ages can play. We always get a good laugh too

  93. Katie T says

    For me, it’s ideal when we can get my husband to play. My son and I really enjoy playing games, but he doesn’t, so when we get him to play, it’s wonderful!

  94. Dorrie Turner says

    Game night would include have a great meal together at the table, playing some yahtzee, maybe jenga or sorry then use those batteries for our Wii remotes and play competitive Wii Sports!!!

  95. Megan K says

    Ooo… we love family game night! Either Okey, ImaginIf, Apples to Apples, or Bounce! And of course some good snacks to go with! ;)

  96. Michelle S says

    My ideal family game night would be Tuesday evening spent playing Monopoly and The Game of Life. Thanks for the giveaway!

  99. Claire Rheinheimer says

    We used to have game nights, I don’t remember the last time that happened. We love UNO and my husband likes Monopoly but I don’t. I’d love for my oldest to stay the weekend and all of us sit at the table and play and talk.

  100. Lisa V. says

    I just getting together with my daughter and her husband. They both like playing games, but wish everyone like the word games as much as my daughter and me.

  101. Peggy E says

    My ideal family game night would be with my kids and grandkids. There would be lots of fun, food, and laughter!

  102. CJ Godfrey says

    Our game night would be setting up our large tables with different games on them and having a ton of snacks along with prizes for the winners.

  103. Diane Hamel says

    My job as a child therapist is to teach low income families how to play together. Teaching them about a family fun night is part of my job.. Awesome when it works…

  104. Brigitte B says

    Its just me and my teenage son in my household now. So our game night is more digital now consisting of pizza and a video game of his choice.

  105. Katie Rose says

    If we’re talking us and the kids it would be after the 2 year old and baby are in bed for the night, we’d have some drinks and a small snack and play a variety of games (unlike the usual 400th round of whatever is their current obsession..) without a meltdown. The no meltdown part is key for me.

    If we mean my siblings and I, I guess I’d have to say the same thing (including no meltdowns!) just that the games would be recommended to ages 4-8 ;-)

  106. Sacha schroeder says

    My ideal family game night would involve everyone in my family, we would laugh, have snacks and no one would get upset if they lost. LOL!

  107. Sherry Eckman says

  109. Jamie Brigham says

  110. says

    The ideal game night is when everyone is off from work and Carol and Heather are over here with us and we all just get into the game with good food and snacks. Just chatting and sharing and usually laughing a lot.

  111. Amy Honious says

    My ideal family game night would be actually completing a normal game of monopoly with hubby and the 4 kids without fighting, lol. All of my kids are now grown, but this game has been banned in our house for many years due to conflict….

  112. Jill Myrick says

    My ideal family game night would be a night when all of my children both young and older are present to play. It would involve pizza, games and we would end the night with popcorn and a movie.


  113. clynsg says

    With the different age ranges in the family, the ideal game night would have to involve several types of games–maybe Candyland for the little kids and a competitive video game for the older ones. Myself, I would prefer a game of Uno!

  114. says

    An ideal family game night for us is when everyone is home, grandma and grandpa are visiting (they love games), and no one has anything at all to do on their agenda, so we can just relax and play.

  115. Brandi Goolsby says

    I would love to do a fun family game night with a new Xbox Kinect game. Maybe Wipeout? I have been wanting to try that one for awhile now. If we did an active game, versus a board game, maybe I wouldn’t feel so guilty about Family Pizza Night. ;)

  116. Yolanda S. says

    Pizza, popcorn, ice cream and lots of different games we all like. NO PHONES, NO TV and NO COMPUTERS!

  117. Stephanie Galbraith says
