Taco Night and Family Games

At our house, family dinner is an important part of our daily routine. We also like to play games together as a family. Now, with the new El Tacodor Dinner Game from Old El Paso, you can enjoy family game time during family dinner time. You can download a free copy of El Tacodor including instructions, a scorecard and a challenge sheet.

The game consists of 5 categories of challenges. With each challenge won, you get to check off an ingredient. The winner, El Tacodor, is the first person to check off all of the ingredients. El Tacodor can use the site to create their very own El Tacodor Decree - setting up their own game rules, custom toppings and more.

Some examples of the challenges include:

Crunch Time (Beat the clock): Name at least 10 animated movies within 1 minute

Meat-N-Greet (Family Fun): Name 5 things that you’d bring home from your favorite vacation place and let the table guess where you traveled

Lettuce Play (Pantomime): Act out different animals – no noises! Your partner must guess 3

Lime Light (Performance): Cheer, “We love tacos, yes we do! We love tacos, how ‘bout you?”

Say Cheese (Wordplay): Pronounce the name of everyone at the table backwards!

As you can probably imagine, you can learn about your other family members, their acting skills, how well they know you, and more. You will also likely spend a large amount of time giggling together. Making for a memorable family meal.

When you visit the El Tacodor website, in addition to downloading the game, you can also enter the Old El Paso El Tacodor Sweepstakes for a chance to win $5,000 just for having fun with your family. Other prizes include monthly giveaways of $300 cash cards, and weekly giveaways of gift certificates for Old El Paso products for the next five months. In addition, you will find a link to coupons, a calendar to schedule your next taco night, topping choice chart and more!

Giveaway
Thanks to Old El Paso and My Blog Spark, I have the opportunity to share an El Tacodor Game prize pack with one A Busy Mom of Two reader.

The winner will receive the instructions, scorecard and challenge sheet so that you don’t have to download them. In addition, you will receive (2) two coupons to purchase Old El Paso dinner kits and a $10 gift card to purchase any additional meal needs (i.e. meat, cheese, lettuce, etc).

I did not receive any compensation for this post, but did receive my own El Tacodor pack to enjoy a taco dinner and game with my family.

Our favorite family game is Hungry, Hungry Hippos. My daughter is still little so she doesn't play it exactly right yet, but she loves the hippos! :)

We've just started playing this game called Qwirkle. It's great for the kids & parents too. Unfortunately my youngest isn't ready for it, so we don't get to play often.

We seem to be getting back into Monopoly lately. Our older kids are rediscovering it and teaching the younger ones how to play.
