Any recommendation for good board games?

All kids need sunshine, fresh air, friends, and a good caring heart for others. And for the matter, so do parents. Find out where to go when you are ready to stop and smell the roses.

Any recommendation for good board games?

My girl tried Monopoly recently...thinks she like it. May want to get more board games for her. I used to be a board game fanatic myself in the past. :)

I still enjoy the old Risk board game. But think it is more for boys. How about scrabble? Learn words while playing.

Yeah ...Scrabble is a good game...but the problem is...not a fair competition if she plays with me. :)

Yes, Scrabble is an unfair game. Why not use one of those Besta dictionary as assistance during the game to make playing more fun?

But that would take the fun out of scrabble. I thought the coolest thing about the game is making words up? You mean you don't know xenaphobic means "fear of TV serials involving women in leather and steel"?

I used to have this "six million dollar man" game...had to cry my heart out before my dad bought for me.

All the classics, risk, monopoly, cluedo, careers, rat race, life etc...all I had before. :P Those days, no computer games.

Try Blokus. It is a strategy game and it is suitable kids as young as 5 years old.

We love this game - Taboo - the game of unspeakable fun. How to say ICE if you can't say SNOW, CREAM, FROZEN, CUBE AND WATER?

Great game to play during gatherings and great way to boost vocabulary and word building skills. :wink:

I love playing thinkfun games!
Have personally played Rush Hours & River Crossing!
Pretty fun and certainly frustrating at times when I cant get to what I need to achieve!
