Prism & Light - Games -250



Play one of the listed "light weight" games.


In the tabletop game world, defining a game as "light" means that while it will be fun, it doesn't require a lot of time or deep thought. While light games can be played strategically, everyone playing, regardless of skill, usually has a fair shot at winning.

Casual Game Revolution provides a great definition for light (or what they call casual) games, stating that

"A casual board (or card) game is played in under an hour, set up and taught in under 10 minutes, and requires some light strategic thought. Casual games are not specifically marketed to children, but can be enjoyed by anyone from older children to adults."

1) Choose and acquire a light game to play from the list below.

Before buying a game, consider borrowing from friends or renting from a local gaming store. That being said, all of these games would be great additions to your library and are worth owning. 

King of Tokyo- You're not the only giant monster in town! But will you be the last one standing?

Hanabi- A card game with a fun twist! All players can see your hand of cards... that is, all players BUT YOU!

Forbidden Desert- Work as a team to escape before it's too late!

Munchkin- Delve through the dungeon, slay monsters and pick up treasure. Yes, it's nerdy. Yes, it's awesome. 

Apples to Apples- Great game to play with a big group with a good amount of kiddos mixed in. (Less fun with just adults!)

2) Play the game you chose!

3) Take a photo that documents your game experience and post it to Instagram, Twitter, or our Facebook Group. If posting to Instagram or Twitter, use the tags with the tags #questscouts and #tabletopgames. (As always, using a non-private account is best so we can see what you're up to!)
