Things change a lot when you have kids. Including your social life… shocker, right? I mean, we can’t just go out every weekend and to be quite honest, we don’t want to. Been there, done that. But just because we have kids doesn’t mean we don’t like to have fun with our adult friends. Those nights are important!
Instead of going out to eat somewhere or frequenting the bars, we spend a lot of time at our house or at our friends’ houses laying low. Good food, good drinks, good company. That’s all you really need anyways, right?
And of course, you need some good board games. And while we have our favorites, it’s sometimes fun to switch it up and try something new. So at one of our recent adult game nights, we introduced Codenames: Deep Undercover.
Codenames has been a hit since it’s release but this spin-off version is for adults only. It features new art, words, and mature play. You can see some of the cards up there but I can assure you, there are some real hidden gems in the pack.
How do you play? See those cards up there? The “Spymaster” has to have his/her team guess which cards are their assigned cards by giving one-word clues. Of course there are other rules like, your clue can’t be a card that’s out and if you can, you want to try and use a word that can help them guess more than one word. To be honest it’s a little more complicated of a game in the beginning. But once you get the hang of it, it’s super entertaining and easy peasy! There are even blank cards so players can write in their own words. Which as you can imagine, can take things to a whole other level. `
Why is it important to have adult game nights after kids?
Gives you a chance to relax.
Strengthens relationships with your friends and spouse.
Gives you something to talk about other than your kids (I know, we love them but…)
Stimulates your mind.
