Games! But I need to beat my 14 year old...

We have just got into playing a board game before he goes off to bed (trying to wean him away from his pc and phone but he doesn’t know it yet!)

He is good at backgammon and chess, not so good at risk and we both get too bored with monopoly to finish a game.

I got a mancala board today - no idea how to play that - as a friend used to play it a lot.

Any other suggestions? Maybe some card games?

And yes - I love snakes and ladders!

Uno! It’s the best card game ever

If forgotten that one! We also have SET and quiddler somewhere. Also Too Many Monkeys (which is just silly and funny).

Silly good humored card game fun:
Exploding Kittens!
Munchkin (several variants available)
Fluxx

Dice rolling games;
King of Tokyo
Zombie Dice (very quick)

Or if you fancy something cooperative (I love coop games) how about;
Hanabi
Pandemic
Escape
Magic Maze

Also recently we have enjoyed some of the "Unlock" series which are a bit like an escape room in a box, working together to solve puzzles but they take up to 60 minutes and use an app to play so may not be what you are looking for.

(To clarify I meant "Escape the curse of the temple" it seems there are several games with Escape in the title!
