Family Fun Night with Reverse Charades and Tapple from USAopoly + GIVEAWAY! Ends 4/13

new disclosureaffiliate

“Family fun night” is something that our family began several months ago to ensure that we were spending quality time together, creating great memories, and having fun. Since then, we’ve searched for games that will really appeal to everyone, with our individual personalities and skills in mind. We know about all of the classics but we wanted something new and just as entertaining. USAopoly presented us with the perfect games for the entire family!


Reverse Charades is a twist on classic game of Charades! In Reverse Charades, one person guesses while the rest of the team acts out the word or phrase! Immediately after hearing this, I imagined a group of people jumping around doing monkey impressions and I just knew that this game would be wild and hilarious. The age recommendation is 6 and older but with enough direction, younger children can participate as well. In Reverse Charades, you aren’t allowed to make any sounds so you can’t compose a strategy with your group. You just have to take your cues from each other, teamwork is key!


My six and eight year old daughters were unbelievably amusing while playing Reverse Charades with us. One word was tap-dancing and unsure if we should accept “tapping”, we kept going as my eight year old jumped up on her knees, screaming “Tapping! That’s tapping! I said TAPPING!” Finally we accepted her answer and she sighed with relief while we agreed that she plays just like I do, by repeating the same answer a hundred times and expecting it to eventually be right!


Meanwhile, when the answer was “juggle”, my six year old’s face turned red with frustration as she shouted, “You’re throwing a ball! That’s throwing a ball! I have no idea, you’re throwing a ball!” My family gets pretty into our games and Reverse Charades certainly brought out our competitive nature!

What I love about this game is the focus and pressure aren’t all on one person. You have to work together and be creative, which is a great exercise for the kids and such a nice way to bond with one another!

We also received Tapple, which is a word game recommended for ages 8 and up. It only requires a minimum of 2 players, so I played it with the kids and also just my husband and I. For the game of Tapple, you choose a category and then you are given 10 seconds to say your word, tap the letter it begins with, and reset the timer for the next player. If you can’t answer, you’re out and the last player left wins the category card, with three category cards being a win.


One of the best things about Tapple is the built-in card storage! In a house full of children, it’s easy to lose cards or mix them up with other things. With Tapple, you can store the cards inside of the game piece so there’s no hassle!


The age recommendation on Tapple is perfect, but we wanted to incorporate the little ones so we asked them to give us word suggestions and then we tapped the letter for them, which I’d like to think helps to teach them letter sounds. My six and eight year olds were shocking me, left and right they would tap words that hadn’t even crossed my mind. “Name something sticky. Jelly!” I was proud to see my girls finally old enough to play a game like this without any help from us at all and it’s such an educational exercise!

We had some humorous moments during Tapple too. The time ticking away puts pressure on you to answer quickly. My eight year old shouted “Octopus!” for something you’d find in the jungle and she immediately realized her mistake, laughing as she said “I’m out!” I must admit that I had my own competitive mistakes too! I stated “Strawberry” to be a color and geared myself up to give an answer for “V” until I realized that Tapple doesn’t have a tab for it!


My husband won every single round of Tapple but he hasn’t seen the last of me, I was just rusty. Tapple will surely be an at-home date night game, as well as one for the family to play together. It will be fun to watch my kids’ vocabulary advance over time and see what kind of doozies they can come up with, taking some of their own category cards for the win!

We loved both Reverse Charades and Tapple very much and it’s agreed that we’d like to buy more USAopoly games every few months to add to our collection. We would and do recommend these games for family fun night lovers like ourselves! They’re affordable and for the memories, they’re worth every penny!
