I've been working on badges for a couple years and I have a question about the Family Beginner Badge. I don't have any children so earning some badges are difficult for only my husband and I to complete. I've hosted extended family game nights every few months for a couple years, most recently on Tuesday. I plan the games, cook the food, etc. Could I use this to earn the Family Beginner Badge or does anyone know of any fun non-electronic games (my husband hates card games) that actually work well and are fun for only two players? I'll I've been able to think of is Mancala and Connect Four and don't really lend themselves to an entire night of gaming.

We enjoy Phase 10 Dice and also Farkle. My hubby and I play Farkle, just the two of us.

One good thing about music, when it hits you, you feel no pain.

Mexican Train is a fun game, using dominos. We play it a lot with our daughter and son-in-law when we visit them, using double-12 dominos. I'll bet you can get instructions on how to plan online somewhere. It's easy and fun!

Have you played Apples to's cards but different. Not like playing cards. We played it with some friends on New Years Eve and it was fun. Kind of hilarious too.

Hi Mandy,

Hosting game nights sounds perfect for the badge! As near as I can tell, the badge is Families Forever, extended family is family in our book!

Hope that helps! Email me ( if you have any more Merit Badge questions!
