Ticket to ride America - the Europe version is the most popular game in our house by a mile

Family favourite here is articulate.

Cranium is great but it’s better with at least 6 people.

Also here’s a great game my DS got for his birthday. It’s called something a bit crazy like Lava Explosion Countdown. You can find it on Amazon. It’s very good.

Oh and the London Underground Children’s version/Zoo Version is brilliant.

Oh and Don’t Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus! That’s a great one.

I have bought Beasts of Balance at hideous expense. It'd better be fun!

Mysteries of old peking! Huge hit here!

Another’s vote for Ticket to Ride, we love it, with Carcassonne close second.

We’ll be getting Catan (and Labyrinth too)

I picked a Swedish game called "Klisk" up this year. Sort a hockey-like game with magnets

We've got Obama llama this year, last year we got dinkee linkee which went down well with everyone from cousins to grandparents (8-70)

We like ticket to ride, exploding kittens, Pandemic, dixit, Carcassonne and colt express.

We've got Christmas edition of Monopoly and Star Wars Cluedo.

Last year we had Big Bang Theory Cluedo and Back to the Future monopoly the year before.

Bounce off is always popular, Battleships, draughts and Top Trumps too.

Star Wars cluedo is the worst game ever
