The Perfect Family Game to Play for Father’s Day!

Step aside newlyweds, this game is all about dads! Celebrate Father’s Day this year with a fun game the whole family can play. If you’re familiar with The Newlywed Game, then you’re ready to go!


How to Play:

Each person needs a dry-erase board, marker, and small cloth for erasing. If you don’t have boards, make a SUPER EASY one using a picture frame or sheet protector. A piece of paper works just fine too! Have dad and kid sit next to each other (where they can’t see each other’s answers) and be ready to answer questions. We rounded up 30 questions to start off with… pick out the ones that best fit your child’s age or come up with your own.

Game host could arrange questions from easiest to hardest, assign points, break questions into rounds, etc. What’s great about this game is that it could be played a variety a ways! The ultimate goal is to be able to match with Dad’s answers.


Game Play Variations:

  • For little ones: Instead of writing on a board, little ones could shout out answers.
  • For multiple siblings: Assign points to each question and let siblings go head-to-head.
