Your Next Family Game Night Made Better With Pinna

Do you have any favorite family traditions?

Traditions are important because they give kids a sense of predictability. They offer a feeling of safety and community. Also, they’re fun!

Many families institute a game night as part of their regular routine. This is an excellent way to connect after a busy week.

Did you know that Pinna can jazz up your weekly game night ritual? There are many game shows on Pinna that the whole family can play together.

Below, we’re sharing how you can shake up your next family game night — no new game purchases required.

Let’s get started.

Shake Up Family Game Night With Game Shows on Pinna

1. The Escape Series

The Escape series is Pinna’s first foray into interactive audio — each podcast is set up to allow listeners to answer yes/no questions throughout the story. Your answers determine your outcome. Guess right and you escape. Guess wrong and you don’t. Your fate is in your hands. This series is fun for all ages and would make an excellent addition to your next family game night.

2. The 5 for 5 Trivia Series

5 for 5 Trivia — and its spinoffs — feature bite-size episodes on a myriad of topics, perfect for trivia night with the kids. You never know what fun facts you’ll learn and you have access to all of the 5 for 5 Trivia shows with your Pinna subscription. Be sure to give them a listen!

3. ExtraBLURT/ ExtraBLURT Jr./ExtraBLURT Blurt-o-matic

In all of the ExtraBLURT game shows, the episodes are around 15 minutes long and jam-packed with exciting challenges and tricky trivia. If your kids are older, ExtraBLURT is perfect. If you’ve got younger kids, opt for ExtraBLURT Jr. And if you only have a few minutes and want to squeeze in some quick family fun, try ExtraBLURT Blurt-o-matic.

4. Wordlinker

Wordlinker is a fast-paced audio game the whole family can play together. The concept is simple. You are given three words as clues and your objective is to find the word that “links” them together — it’s fun and a great way to challenge your mind!

5. Cats Knocking Things Off Tables/What’s Champ Chewing?

Pet owners will delight in these hilarious animal-themed guessing games. Can you guess what shenanigans the cats are getting into? Or what snacks Champ has found to eat? Cats Knocking Things Off Tables and What’s Champ Chewing? will have kids (and grownups!) yelling out the most random and funny guesses to both.

6. Sound Mine

Similar to the games above, Sound Mine is an audio guessing game that will put your listening skills to the test. Each episode features a clip of a sound you’d find in nature. Can you guess what each sound is? Tune in to find out!

The Wrap-Up

Pinna is an excellent tool for screen-free learning and fun all year round. Keep your kids engaged and entertained with Pinna’s comprehensive and growing library.
