The easy to follow games and general directions allow for everyone in the family to have fun and enjoy themselves.

Truly any Overcooked game will do, but 2 is probably your best bet. With being able to play with up to 4 people the whole family can try and run a kitchen together. While it’s no cakewalk it is a hectic and fun game to play. Try not to run into each other too much!
