Fun games that can be played with cards are Fo Fish, 31, Crazy Eight, Chase The Ace, and so on. Gathering with adults only? No problem. Layout some beverages, dress the tables and put on a bow to lead a game of Poker or Rummy. You can make it even more fun by adding a money-betting element to it.
This one can bring loads of fun for a longer period. What more, at the end of a talent show, you might even be surprised by the hidden skills some of your family members have. Make each family member perform a talent in front of the rest. If some of them are shy or not sure of the talent you can help them by giving them ideas. After all, it is not a real competition. However, you can still keep small prizes for everyone who participates.
