Family Game Show packs decent value for a $20 title. Its presentation and production values are as rudimentary as you’d expect given the price tag, and the games themselves aren’t terribly original, but the content is solid. The trivia game questions are diverse, well worded, and interesting, and the brain game’s activities are intuitive and can be unexpectedly challenging. It’s a little disappointing that players can’t choose the specific words or numbers they want to solve in Puzzle Addict's crossword and sudoku puzzles, but this restriction isn't a deal-breaker.

Thanks to multiple skill levels and the ability to tailor difficulty to individual players to help level the playing field between kids and grown-ups, this is a game that can be enjoyed by the whole family. Go in with the proper expectations for a budget game and you’ll likely be pleasantly surprised by what Family Game Show delivers.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
