I think it is a close tie for my favorite season between Spring and Fall. The weather is so mild and comfortable. To be honest, I love enjoying rainy days indoors and watching movies and playing great games with the family.

With the change of the weather, I want to share with you some of our favorite board games from Thames & Kosmos. With a ton of age groups in mind, here are some of our Rainy Day Games that you can enjoy with your family. 

About Thames & Kosmos

Thames & Kosmos was founded in 2001 by a science museum director and her son, who saw the great need and demand for better science education materials — resources for parents and their children that are more engaging, more effective, more relevant, and more fun.

EXITThe Game

EXITThe Game is a new series of party games for up to four players that offers a unique, unforgettable gaming experience. These games allow you to bring the excitement, intensity, and team spirit of an escape room to your living room. In each EXIT game, your team starts out locked in an imaginary room, or trapped somewhere. You must solve a series of riddles and puzzles in order to unlock doors and reveal new riddles. Each correct solution brings you to another riddle and eventually to freedom. The clock is ticking: You must solve all of thepuzzles as fast as you can because the faster your team escapes the room and the fewer hints you use along the way, the more points you earn. Get ready to test your creative problem solving and logical thinking skills, because the rulebook in an EXIT game doesn’t reveal all the rules like in other games. After the rulebook gets you started, it’s up to your team to discover for itself how the rooms look, what the clues are, how to decipher them, and how to escape. Can you crack the codes and manage to escape the room? EXITThe Gameis constantly expanding with new stories (Dead Man on the Orient Express,The Abandoned Cabin,The Forbidden Castle,The Forgotten Island,The Mysterious Museum, The Pharoah’s Tomb,The Polar Station,The Secret Lab,The Sinister Mansion, and The Sunken Treasure) RETAIL PRICE:$14.95 ◾ # OF PLAYERS: 1-4 ◾ SUGGESTED AGE:10 and up ◾ PLAYING TIME:1-2 hours


Word Slam Family has all the fast-paced fun wordplay of the original hit game, but in a streamlined, compact format. This version includes 100 story word cards and 100 answer cards, with a total of 600 answer terms in four difficulty levels. It includes easier, family-friendly answer words suitable for families and groups with kids ages 10 and up. In this version, the die and timer is replaced by an app. Instead of using card holders, the two box halves are used as screens between the teams and the answer cards are played behind thescreens. This game can be played both as an expansion to the base game and as a stand-alone game. RETAIL PRICE:$14.95 ◾ # OF PLAYERS:3+ ◾ SUGGESTED AGE:10 and up ◾ PLAYING TIME:45 minutes

Lost Cities: Rivals

Use your cards to venture down expedition routes that take you to far-flung and mysterious corners of the Earth: to an abandoned mountain temple, a decaying circle of stone, a city sunken under the sea, an ancient Stone-Age settlement, and a town inside of a mountain. Your goal is to plan the routes in such a way that they bring you the greatest possible fame. If you are especially daring, you will also be able to wager on the success of your own expeditions. But watch out: You are not the only one traveling! Which routes will you pursue and how much gold is it worth to you? Plan well and use your resources wisely. Only theplayer who has collected the most fame at the end of the game will be the winner. RETAIL PRICE: $14.95 ◾ # OF PLAYERS: 2-4 + ◾ SUGGESTED AGE:10 and up ◾ PLAYING TIME:40 minutes
