Tickets to ride. Meaty, fun.. Attractive.

Ours love Coppit. Not a board game, but Exploding Kittens is very popular with my DC too.

My 10 year olds favourite board games are the Wikipedia game and Timeline

King of Tokyo is good fun.

Articulate,exploding kittens

Monopoly and Cluedo. The oldies are the best!!

Game of Life - another oldie, but brilliant!

Ticket to ride. We're buying the German version this year. Already have the original north America, Europe, UK/Pennsylvania expansion and Rails & Sails edition.

They've just made a 6+ version for kids, just need DD to grow a few years!

I realise I sound mighty nerdy and a bit sad at this point but it really is a good game! 😂

Yy to Ticket To Ride and Exploding Kittens.

I'll add Carcassonne and 221B Baker Street.

My kids love these and poker. grin

Blackjack, Exploding Kittens, King of Tokyo are faves here.

Settlers of Catan, quite hard to learn but easy and very rewarding when picked up wink

Carcasonne is a fantastic game that our whole family plays. Labrinth is great as well. If you want to try a card game Flux is really funny too and portable.

Must add we have loads and in terms of ease exploding kittens is a winner, dd loves it

bellabelly Sat 23-Sep-17 14:10:12

Camel Up is great!

iklboo Sat 23-Sep-17 14:12:51

Love Exploding Kittens too

EveryoneTalkAboutPopMusic Sat 23-Sep-17 14:13:12

Forgot Camel Up! How could I?

MrsJamin Sat 23-Sep-17 14:14:58

My votes would be for carcassonne and then labyrinth too. The traders addition to carcassonne is great once you have the Base game too.

snowmanshoes Sat 23-Sep-17 16:09:53

cluedo and monopoly tycoon, eldest dd has requested mysterium this year after playing it at a friends and really enjoying it

Bintang Sat 23-Sep-17 18:49:30

Catan, ticket to ride, Dixit, scythe, my 11yo loves android netrunner, but it's 2 player only.

Redglitter Sat 23-Sep-17 18:51:16

Frustration is the favourite in our house

PepeLePew Sat 23-Sep-17 18:54:53

Camel Up.
Exploding Kittens.
Ticket to Ride.
Also, Racing Demon is enormous fun and very noisy (but cards rather than board).

Game of Life and Labyrinth. We bought them for last Christmas for then 11 y/old dd. We still play with them and enjoy every so often.

Thanks all so much! Some great ideas here for games I'd never heard of. The more traditional ones we already have. I've made a note of them all we have birthdays and Xmas coming up so should be able to get a good selection
