Our residents LOVE the game Penny Ante. You need to make up about 100 cards that say various things such as "Take a penny if you have blue pants on" "Give 2 pennies to anyone who has been to the Grand Canyon" "Give 5 pennies to the bank" "Get a penny if you like to cook" "Get a penny from anyone who has driven a motorcycle" etc.
You will have a bowl of pennies in the middle of the table as the "bank" and then each player will have a small dish in front of them with 25 pennies in to start. The residents really enjoy this and it gets them to learn more about each other and to reminisce a bit.
I believe if you google search it you can find pre-made cards as well if you aren't interested in making your own!
