One of the many joys of the holiday season is the time you get to spend with far-flung family. No school, no going to the office, no shopping—just hours to wile away with your children, grandchildren, nieces and nephews, and other loved ones.

To make this time a true bonding experience for all the generations, what’s better than playing low-tech games as a family? But you may need to jog your memory on how to play these favorites, including much-loved card games, fun indoor contests that’ll get everyone off the couch, and competitions that’ll break up long car drives. 

So hit pause on the video consoles and play these easy-to-learn games instead.
