Board Games

Jules2011 · 25/11/2020 21:31

Does anyone have any recommendations for a good board game for a pre teen and a just teen. We have:
Monopoly
Quirkle
Cluedo
Trival Pursuit
Escape from Atlantis
Tension
Game of Life

So looking for some others to play at Christmas, ideally not too likely to cause an argument ๐Ÿ˜‚

I'm getting Taskmaster for us for Christmas this year. I hope it's good - I have heard good things about it.

Ticket to Ride seems good (just learning it with DCs at the moment)

Seconded re Carcassonne - long term fan here.

Forbidden Island also good (a co-operative game where you all either win or all lose)

The family version of Cards Against Humanity is called Apples to Apples and is more fun than the toilet-humour one IMO.

Onitama is also nice - a bit like mini-chess that takes much less time.

FWIW quite a lot of these can be tried out on Chromebook / iPad first - check out Asmodee Digital games on the app stores. HTH
