What games do your 7 year olds love?

I'm thinking along the lines of family/board games. So far we have Go Fish and Uno (card games), and Snakes and Ladders, and that generic pop the dice in the middle and move your counters round the board thing.

Blokus from Hamleys!

Oh that looks good. I just downloaded an app to check it out.

DS loves Blokus too smile

Any card game really, I've started to google some of the older ones. MIL works at an assisted living place and I'm thinking of taking him to play with some of the elderly gents there- a lot of them love their cards.

There's also an old game (think it dates back to the Roman Empire or something!) called Nine Man Morris that he loves to play with DH. I'm not sure how you play it but they like it.

This is probably entirely unhelpful as a post fblush

Blokus is good. Ingenious is good too, simple enough to play but interesting enough to play with them!

And labyrinth.

Junior monopoly

Thanks all. I was thinking of Monopoly, but after reading some of the Christmas threads I've been debating whether to get junior or normal monopoly.

Mine likes normal monopoly, bananagrams, chess, Sorry! and most things that are just move the counter around the board type games like snakes and ladders, and old Snowman game at my mum's and so on. We got Articulate Kids at Christmas but not played it yet.

Mine likes Chess and Draughts; Old Maid and Happy Families; Kerplunk; and she got a game for Xmas that involves piling things onto a raft with a parrot and pushing it until things fall off.

Monopoly, pass the bomb, Cluedo, drafts, chess, trivial pursuits, pictionary, charades, string railways, card games,

Dobble is their latest favourite and absolutely great fun.
