I just love this site, Winning Moves Games. They have so many of the games I played when I was younger. Games I want to share with my kids and grandchildren. When I was looking over the games they had to offer, so many good memories came back of playing them with my cousins, siblings and family. I know back “then” we didn’t have smartphones, computers and so on, so we relied on other things to keep us busy. I remember many times laying on my aunt’s living room floor playing Sorry, Trouble, Life and Risk (I never got Risk, but it was fun to be a part of it.). My Dad’s favorite game was Clue and he always won.
As you see I picked out some of my other favorites. It was a hard choice as there were many I would have picked, but that just leaves me some to get at a later time.
My first favorite to play as a family was Yahtzee, I still remember my Dad shaking the dice while saying, “Baby needs a new pair of shoes”. You can tell that made a big impression on me because I am in my mid-40s and that was when I was probably 11. The game you purchase on Winning Moves is the exact look of the box we had, as well as the cup. This dice game was introduced over 50 years ago, and still to this day is played by many. Ages 8 and up, 2 or more players.
The Classic Yahtzee game comes with the same styling as the original game.
This set comes with:
- the original aluminum rimmed dice cup
- five dice
- bonus chips.
If Yahtzee isn’t your thing, then you may enjoy another one of our family favorites. DELUXE PIT® could be the game for you. It is a fast moving card game. I am including the video because I cannot explain the excitement you will feel while playing this game. I will be honest, when this was played at my Aunt and Uncle’s house one night, I cannot confirm or deny that my cousin broke their kitchen table. I just can’t say enough about this game as far as fun is concerned. Check out the video below. Ages 7 and up, 3 to 8 players. Comes with 74 Casino-Quality cards, silver colored bell and illustrated rules.
Winning-Moves also has games for smaller kids. They carry Candyland, Chutes and Ladders, Hi-Ho! Cherry-O, just to name a few. Two of my favorites are Crocodile Dentist and Uncle Wiggly. Crocodile Dentist has changed in size since I was younger, as I would play with my younger sister. Instead of having to pull out the teeth with a ‘dental’ tool, you now just have to push in each tooth before his jaws snap shut. Please note that you will want to try it before you allow a small child to, that way you can show them how it works. When his jaws shut you lose. Poor old croc has a tooth that’s bothering him; pretend to be a Dentist to help him out. Press the wrong tooth and he’ll surprise you. No loose parts. A classic, just in the smaller form. Ages 4 and up, 1-4 players.
Until I went to Winning Moves I had not seen Uncle Wiggly since I was just a kid. I loved this game and always enjoyed playing it. It is a classic child’s first reading game. The first player to get their Uncle Wiggily piece to Dr. Possum’s office wins. This game is for children ages 4-8, 2-4 players and it comes with the board, four “Uncle Wigglys”, rhyme cards, and the rules.
Last but not least the classic Rubik’s Speed Cube. Endless hours have been spent for years on the Rubik’s Cube. All of the time spent trying to get the cube back to its original same color patterns on all 4 sides proves to be difficult. Once a person has ‘conquered’ the cube, the next step is to see how fast you can do it again. The Rubik’s Speed Cube is a variation of the original because with this one you can customize your cube! Adjust the spring tension, lubricate the moving parts and unleash your inner Speed Cuber! Ages 8 and up, 1 player. Comes with 1 Rubik’s Cube, cube stand, lube injector with lube, lube injector cap, mini screwdriver, 6 metal washers, 6 metal springs and instructional manual. You can now get your Rubik’s Cube on!

All of these games are so fun, including Yahtzee. They still make such high quality game boards.
We love playing games. We always have a great time and we all are competitive!
love all the games have not played yahtzee in years. I want to start a game night with may kids and grandkids in the fall
Great nostalgia, and time to play games! Coincidence galore too. My relatives are visiting for the first tie from across the country (haven’t seen them in more than 15 years!). And guess what we all sat down and did tonight? Played board game! And when my cousin arrives tomorrow with her husband and young daughter, we had discussed what games to play!. Perfect timing. 🙂
Great ideas on games–a good variety keep family game night interesting!
our deck of Pit cards is pretty old, we could use a new set with a new bell too!
I remember playing games when I was younger with my parents. Lots of these games has been around for a long time
I would play these games with my grandchildren i would play games with my grandmother such good memories
All of these games bring back so many memories!

Rubik’s Speed Cube looks like a lot of fun.
awesome games no tablet or computer needed
I really love the games. I think having a game night brings the family closer, These games are awesome and so is the review,
Thank you Jane.
Family game night is a night to look forward to in our home. We would welcome the opportunity to add to our collection of games!
I would love to get the crocodile game or uncle wiggly, there are few games that look fun for a smaller child when I’m in the store and I think my almost 4 year old would have these serve him well as transition to game night games. Also, his older brothers could still play and help him out without having to stand over them if I am busy.
I have never played Pit but I have heard so many good things about it! Our family loves board games, so this would be perfect for us!
I love the retro look of the Yahtzee game!
My daughter, my husband and myself love to play board games!
my kids are now old enough to play yahtzee
I LOVE CLASSIC GAMES. THEY ARE SO FUN TO PLAY WITH FAMILY AND FRIENDS. I AM HAPPY TO FIND OUT ABOUT WINNING MOVES GAMES.
I like the Uncle Wiggly game I’ve never seen this one before. I bet my son would have fun play this game.
We love family game night. It is so important to spend quality time with your family. We love sorry, trouble, life, guess who and so many more.
I love having a “family game night” with my family whenever possible. It gives us the chance to have fun and spend quality time with each other.
My daughter and I are Yahtzee addicts! We force anyone that visits to play too. We both would love to try the speed cube!

I have wonderful memories of playing these games with my parents and I would love to play them with my kids1
We have at least 1 family game night a week with my grandkids. They would love these games
Games were such a huge part of my childhood. My dad was sick and couldn’t to many activities, but he could play games. We spent so much time playing games and being a family. Now that I am a parent, we play games too. It is such a great activity, and everyone gets involved.

What a great site! They have all my favorites I played when I was younger. I loved Aggravation and Payday. We enjoy family game night, how fun it would be to share these games now with my son?!
I loved the Chutes and Ladders game when I was a kid, I still love to play Yahtzee!
i’d love to get yahtzee to play with my kids
Wow! They have some really neat games to have for our winter time family game nights. I like a lot of them.
my grandkids would love this,they love playing games at my house
I could really use this to entertain my grandchildren when they visit.
We have family game night once a week and I know it is something that we (especially our kids) will always remember! I like all the winning moves family games; my favorite is Crocodile Dentist.
I love the game pit. it is a great game for whole family
I have always loved board games even as a kid. I have never play Pit and now I want to try it out.
Theses games look fun
What an awesome game set! This would make for an awesome family game night!
I had to take a look at the website. I’ve never seen a mah-jong card game, that looks pretty interesting. I’d also love to try upwords since we also like scrabble. I’m not sure I get the idea of Deluxe Pit, but thanks for the video. It made sense, but not my kind of game, I think.
As a kid, I loved RISK! Hey, who doesn’t want to rule the World, lol?? It might be fun to pull my hair out over a Rubik’s Cube again!
I love Family Game Night! I have such fond memories of all the fun we used to have…it’s about time we get back into it 🙂 Winning Moves Games has such a great collection of so many games we played when my son was younger! We really enjoyed playing The Game of Life to name one!
