From Country Living

  • With many stay-at-home mandates still in effect, families everywhere are thinking of ways to stay entertained indoors.
  • As a result of quarantine, game nights seem to be back and bigger than ever.
  • Hasbro teamed up with Pandora to create the perfect soundtracks to all your favorite board games.

With lockdown orders largely still in place, families all across the country are turning to indoor activities for entertainment. While reading a new book, piecing together a puzzle, or streaming the latest Netflix or Hulu original are certainly great options, in a time where togetherness is more top-of-mind than ever, we’re thinking a family game night deserves to be in the works.

Lucky for us, Hasbro and Pandora have teamed up to create “Bring Home the Fun with Sound On.” This collaboration is a collection of playlists to line up with your favorite classic family board games, like Monopoly, Operation, Candy Land, Clue, and more.

Each Pandora playlist features 15 songs to help bring the game to life. Simply tune in to the playlist of your choice (listed below) and let the vocal stylings of Taylor Swift, Billy Ray Cyrus, Maren Morris, and more make game night more entertaining than ever. Here are a few of our favorites:
