During the summer our family enjoyed family game night weekly, and now that school is back in full swing I feel it’s even more important to carry on that tradition. While the kids are in school during the week we don’t get to see them as much as when they weren’t. With homework and after school activities we don’t have as much family interaction time either. Setting aside at least one night a week to enjoy a game, family time and fun food is something I cherish.
Our most recent family game night was inspired by #DipDipHooray!, who just happens to be giving away a $1,000 Hasbro Family Game night for you and your family!!

For our family game night, I decided to make a fun “Chicken Nugget Casserole” using the participating products. We picked up some Tyson Chicken Nuggets, Ore Ida French Fries and Heinz Tomato Ketchup (I entered the UPC codes from these to unlock awesome games) and I made what the kids call “The Yummiest Dinner Ever!” Here’s what I did:
- 1 Bag of Tyson Chicken Nuggets (we used the dinosaur shaped nuggets because they’re cute)
- 1 Bag of Ore Ida French Fries (we used the because they’re our favorite)
- Heinz Tomato Ketchup to taste
- Cheese of your choosing (we used shredded Mozzarella and American slices)
- Preheat oven to 450° F
- In a baking dish, spread Ore Ida French Fries in a single layer.
- Top the fries with Tyson Chicken Nuggets, swirl on Heinz Ketchup and lightly sprinkle with Mozzarella cheese.
- Create another layer of nuggets, top with ketchup and American cheese.
- Create another layer of french fries, sprinkle Mozzarella on top and lightly drizzle ketchup on top.
- Season with Salt & Pepper. Bake for 20 minutes, allow to cool for about 15 minutes before serving.
While waiting on our dinner to cook we went ahead and opened up our chosen game of the night: Clue. We headed to Walmart to buy a new game for our Family Game Night, as well as the ingredients for our fun Recipe Creation. It wasn’t much debate on what game to get, we all enjoy mystery based games and the only one who couldn’t fully participate was Little One, and she has the attention span of a gnat so she wasn’t upset. The Clue box seems to have gotten a new cover, but overall it’s the same game John and I grew up playing and referencing.
While we were deciding on a game in store, John tried to compare the 2 versions of Clue to determine what the difference(s) was, but the only things he noticed were the appearances and the age suggestions. We opted for the Hasbro version.
