I know it feels like the world is ending every time a storm knocks out the power, but just because the electricity is out it doesn't mean you have to sit there miserably in the dark. There are plenty of ways to have fun when the lights go out!

My family is a big fan of board games to begin with, but a power outage gives us a chance to get really creative with the games we play. Thanks to hobbylark.com we've compiled a pretty good list of games that are easy and fun to play in the dark.

  • 20 Questions
  • The Song Game
  • Charades
  • Hand Shadows
  • Hangman
  • Hum a Tune
  • Another Thinking Game

You've probably played all of these games once or twice, but if you need a reminder on how they work check out the rules on the Hobby Lark website.
