Sardines, a fun game for large groups
This is fun hide and seek game for large groups so it’s perfect for family reunion. Just think of “Sardines” as the opposite of “Hide and Seek”.The object of the game is to find the person hiding and hide with them. “Sardines” is best played in a large area with many hiding places such as a campground, large yard, field, or park.
How to Play Sardines
First choose someone to be “it”. “It” hides while everyone counts slowly to 20. When they’re done counting everyone hunts for the “it”. When they find “it” they hide with him/her until the last person finds the hiding group. This person now becomes “it” and hides.
Sardines is especially fun with big families and groups. It is a fun game to play in the dark. There is no advance preparation needed. Sardines is a good game to keep in your game repertoire to play when you need a filler or when you need a game for the kids in the family so the adults can get a little down time- just don’t forget to “seek” for the kids after they “hide”.
My family consists of 8 adults and 4 children 6 years and under. We like to get together for family game night every Friday. We make homemade pizza and play games. We have some fun games that we adults like to play but we’re always on the look out for games that the kids can play.
Our latest find is Pengoloo. It’s a very simple but well-done memory game.
There are twelve cute wooden penguins with a hollow space to hide one of twelve brightly colored eggs (2 each of 6 colors).
Players roll the dice to determine what color eggs they are looking for and then look under two penguins. If they get a match, they get to keep it; if both match, they get another turn; otherwise, it’s the next player’s turn.
The first to get 6 eggs wins, or the one at the end with the most eggs.
Our little ones, and the big ones too, had a fun time playing this game for family game night. The game is very sturdy and I think that it will last a long time. It costs under $25.00 and you can purchase it by clicking on the link below or in the family reunion helper store.
