There's a shop at the central (next to Clarke quay mrt) that sells many board games - not the usual ones you see. But hor not sure whether the shop is still in operation as the mall is not exactly bustling with life.

Reversi? Can teach the child about strategy and looking at the big picture. Not about how many seeds u lose in the immediate step but how many more u can capture in the future.

The river crossing game-different scenarios to think about how to cross the river. Gets increasingly harder as u progress through the scenarios.
