Quality Family Time with Teens
Nowadays, it’s getting harder and harder to have Quality Family Time, especially if your family is growing up and long past those precious bedtime stories. We have found the start of the weekend to be the perfect time to do something special together. We often plan an activity and tempt the kids with a special dinner and snacks to munch as the evening progresses. One of our favorite activities we all love to participate in are these strategic and fun-filled Disney board games.
Our current top three strategy board games voted by our kids and enjoyed by all are Disney Villainous, Disney Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs: A Gemstone Mining Game, and Codename: Disney Family Edition.
In this epic contest of sinister power, take on the role of a Disney Villain and strive to achieve your own devious objective. Discover your character’s unique abilities and winning strategy while dealing twists of fate to thwart your opponents’ schemes. Find out who will triumph over the forces of good – The Worst Takes It All!
Playing as favorite evil-doers like Maleficent, Ursula, and Captain Hook, players will take on the role of the Disney Villain and plan their schemes methodically in the way of their Disney Villain to reach their objective before everyone else. Set traps, wield curses, leverage your allies, and most importantly, be cunning!
- Player Interaction: While Villains play within their own story, interaction occurs throughout the Fate Action. Using the Fate Deck, players can thwart their opponents from reaching their objectives.
- Caters to: A wide range of skill levels. Familiar and well-loved characters coupled with mid-level strategy makes this an approachable game for a large range of skill levels.
- Replayability: Once you’ve mastered one Villain’s strategy, try to master the other five. Numerous combinations of villains playing together make for a different game experience every time.
There is also an extension pack called, Wicked ToThe Core. Playing as favorite evil-doers like Hades, Dr. Facilier, and the Evil Queen, players will take on the role of the Disney Villain and plan their schemes methodically in the way of their Disney Villain to reach their objective before everyone else.
Play Disney’s Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs Gemstone Mining Game and push your luck as you collect valuable gems from the mine and earn bonus points by discovering gem combinations from Snow White objectives. Based on the popular Quartz gameplay by Passport Studios.
Three to seven players take on the roles of the Seven Dwarfs, who are working diligently to mine gems to trade in for Snow White Pie Points.
The game includes 84 Coin Tokens, 81 Cards, 68 Plastic Gemstones, a Wooden Day Marker, 7 Experience Tokens, 7 Dwarf Tokens, a Cloth Bag, 1 main game board, and 7 Dwarf Mining Carts Player Boards each showcasing your favorite Dwarf.
- There are seven types of multi-colored ‘gems’ to mine for: Topaz, Amethyst, Emerald, Sapphire, Ruby, Diamond, and Obsidian.
- As one of the Seven Dwarfs, you’ll mine for jewels that will either stock you up for success or have you saving your strength for more rounds.
- Collect different combinations of gems in your Cart to try for the best haul of the bunch! Mining is as easy as pulling a gem from the provided Mine Bag, but watch out for whammies! For instance, Obsidian is worth zero points, and drawing two of these undesired items turns into an ‘accident’ that sends you home empty-handed
In this nostalgic themed and fast-paced game beware of your friends as well as the dangers that lurk in the mine which could force you to return home empty-handed. Have the most Pie Points after five days in the mine and you win!
The Disney family edition of codenames combines the hit social word game with some of Disney’s most beloved properties from the past 90 years.

They give clues in the form of a code word that will hell their teammates find these Disney Treasures.
Be careful not to decipher a code incorrectly or you might help the other team. It’s a race to identify all of your team’s Treasure Code first.
Codenames: win or lose, figuring out the clues is great fun. Add a wealth of Disney treasures and it’s simply a terrific time!
These games are about having fun together as a family.
The strategic component allows everyone to be equally challenged which is part of the fun playing a game with older kids.
