Game nights growing up were the best ways to bring the family together.

And now, as more families across the U.S. are spending more time together indoors, we figured it would be a good time to pull out some of these board games.

Check out these games that you can play or play with your kids:

Connect Four

How to play: Make sure you are the first person to get four chips in a row. This can either be a horizontal, vertical, or diagonal line.

Battleship

How to play: Two players will attempt to hit each other's ships by calling out a grid coordinate on the board.

Monopoly

How to play: Try to become the richest player by renting, selling, and buying property.

Pictionary 

How to play: All players try to guess a word based on a drawing in a minute or less.

Taboo

How to play: In separate teams, be sure not to say the taboo word while getting your team to guess.

Yahtzee

How to play: Try to get the highest score after rolling 5 dice.

Scrabble

How to play: In several rounds, players will draw letters and try to create words.

Twister

How to play: Players must try to touch a color on the board without falling over.

Clue

How to play: Players will try to discover who was killed, where, and with what weapon.

Jenga

How to play: Create a tower of wooden blocks, with the person who built the tower gets the first move. Each player will take one block from any level (except the one below the incomplete top level) of the tower, and try to place it on the top level. The game ends when the tower falls, or if any piece falls from the tower other than the piece being knocked out to move to the top. The last person to remove and place a block successfully is the winner.
