Now that the children are back in school and the evenings are getting dark earlier, it’s time to take out the Board Games and have some fun as a family. Here are 10 Family Board Games which are great fun to play.
- Ludo – €9.50
This is a game for 2 to 4 players where each player is racing to get their four counters home before the other players do.
2. The Beetle Game – €7.99
The dice determines what part of the Beetle’s body you have. The aim of the game is to be the first player to have a complete beetle.
3. Charades for Kids – €14.99
This version of Charades is suitable for children aged 4+ as the items/actions to be acted out are in picture form as well as written on the card.
4. Scrabble as Gaeilge – €45
If improving your Irish and practicing it is something you like doing as a family, this version of Scrabble is just what you need.
5. The Yes/No Game – €10.49
The aim of the game is to be quizzed but not to answer with the words ‘yes’ or ‘no’. It takes a lot of concentration and skill to master this game and is great fun in the process.
6. Chinese Checkers – €29.99
This game is suitable for up to 6 players. The aim is to move all your checkers across the board to the opposite triangle. However, if you use strategy, you can block others in their journey to beat you!
7. Tintastic Bluff – €5.99
This little travel game is great fun to play at home too. The aim of the game is to be so good at lying that you convince others that you are telling the truth. Recommended for ages 8+
8. Kersplatt – €19.99
This game is a little bit like Ludo but your counters are moulded by you out of play dough. Instead of dice, there are cards telling you how to move and if you get a Kersplatt Card you can splat an opponent’s counter.
9. Chess in a Tin – €13.95
This gorgeous wooden chess set comes in a handy travel tin. The board folds out.
10. Scribblehead – €19.99
This game a is Pictionary with a twist. Instead of drawing the picture on paper, you need to draw it on the whiteboard attached to your forehead for your team to guess.
I hope you can find something here that will suit the size and age of your family. If you missed last week’s blog on Card Games, you can find it here.
Have fun playing games with the ones you love the most,
