Hey Guys and gals….
This week we are going to be looking at the 5 best board games for kids / families available at the moment. Now a lot of people have their favorite board games and I am one of those people but what I am looking for here is board games which have replay value and also you can easily pick up anywhere. We all know Speak Out and Pie Face are good games but really how many times are you going to be willing to continue to get hit by cream. A question every porn star gets asked?
Enough of that lets begin
How could we not start off with the classic pull a wooden stick out of a block of sticks and hope to god it doesn’t fall over classic which is Jenga. I love this because of 2 reasons. Its simple. There is no mad rules or set up. It takes 2 minutes to get going and the person to pull the stick out which topples it loses. Great fun. Secondly the replay value is emence. Seriously I have played this game for hours with my kids (well one of them, the other just wants to see destruction and knocks it down like a wrecking ball through my Miley Cyrus shaped heart.)
Such a simple and classic game. The rules are simple for any child to pick up and the reward of beating the child I mean in the child beating you is worth it. This is a fantastic game for teaching kids about thinking ahead and strategy. Just black against whites. Or whites against black. We aren’t racist here. Just keep in mind the checkers can be small so keep away from your 2 year olds please.
Dungeons and Dragons
Yes I went there. This all time classic is a must to have in any house. Yes the rules are hard but come one. You get to make up your own adventure with your family in which they live or die by a roll of a dice and at any moment a wandering Ogre could jump out and destroy your whole mission. Start simple. Don’t go big on a first play as kids will just get board. Make little drawings for different characters. Get the kids involved in making the dungeon. Never underestimate the power of imagination.
My partner is not allowed to play this game. I have never played it with her and I can see why she would not be allowed. This is pure maths right here guys. This is your chance to teach your kids ( and partners) about the value of money and how to spend it. Monopoly is probably the best-selling board game in the world so get one and just have some fun. Don’t be too strict at the start but then make sure the kids know all of the rules and then real estate their asses.
To finish up I have to pick one of my favorite games of all time. I love it. Watching all those pieces fall into place at the end to capture my wayward mouse in just heaven to me. This is a simple game which children and families of all ages will surely love. Yes there is a lot of setting up and maybe just maybe you will not wanna set the whole thing up again after the first time around but there will always be more mice to capture and more fun to be had.
So what did you think of the list? Have you any suggestions for games which I have not put on the list? Leave a comment below if you do.
