Fun Family Game Night with the Gods of Greek Mythology

It's Friday night, the popcorn is popped and you have a choice...binge watch Netflix or have family game night? If you are anything like our household, Friday night is pizza night, so some form of activity is the better choice. Looking through game options, we at Tolmee realized that while there may be endless choices in games, those choices become limited when you want to incorporate education and history. 

There should be no surprise that Tolmee found such games in Greece, a country considered to be the cradle of Western civilization and steeped in rich history. Our friends at My Greek Games are committed to making family game night entertaining and educational by creating fun games grounded in learning all about the ancient Greek gods and mythology. 

You may find it is hard to choose just one. After all, each one provides a rich experience of its own. 

Odyssey: A Snakes and Ladders Game

Odyssey is a board game that will take you to mythical places you haven't even dreamed of. With your fellow sailors you will get to taste magical fruits, dine with giant Cyclops, meet beautiful witches and visit enchanted places!

Domi is an amusing picture recognition and number matching game for kids and adults based on dominoes. The 28 cardboard cards have lively, minimalistic, colorful sketches, featuring 7 of the most significant ancient Greek gods and heroes.

My Greek Games is an ethical and responsible small company that creates whimsical, bright and eco-conscious games for children and children at heart. The artists of these creations say that these games are “Inspired by Ancient Gods and Played by Modern Heroes”. We at Tolmee agree and suggest backing away from the remote control and having some fun with the kids. Take the popcorn and head over to the dining room table with a selection of games that will make each family member a modern hero!
