Top 10 Family Board Games – Slideshare

Forbidden Island cooperative board game

Great cooperative family game!

What are your favorite family board games?

Does your family still gather around the table for epic games of Monopoly?

Maybe your family’s favorites are Sorry or Life.

Chances are that if you played Monopoly with your family growing up, then you’ve probably tried introducing it to your kids as well. But it doesn’t always go over so great.

Don’t give up!

Just because your kids might not like these “roll-and-move” games doesn’t mean they don’t like playing board games. There are thousands of new board games published every year with entirely new game experiences.

Ticket to Ride – a fantastic game hit!

If not, then you’ll be surprised at what lies in store for you. In fact there’s probably a game store in your area that would love to introduce you to a whole new world of modern boardgaming.

A couple years ago we compiled our list of Top 10 “Must Have” Family Board Games. Games that should be on every family’s shelf so they’d always have a great game to play no matter the situation.

If you’ve seen any of our lists lately, you’ll know that limiting it to only 10 games is a very tough call. But it’s a great place to start.

We just posted our list to Slideshare in presentation form and thought we’d share it again with you.

I stumbled across your blog a few weeks ago when our family was having a TV free week and I was searching for board game ideas. I started reading through your archives and bought Sequence + Survive Escape from Atlantis to see us through the week. It turned out that we love board games and have since pretty much ditched the television for game play each night. We have two children (12 & 17) and they are thoroughly enjoying our new family hobby.
I have since bought Ticket to Ride Europe, Small World & Pandemic – love them all so much too. So, thankyou for all your great reviews and I now look forward to checking your blog and seeing your latest posts and reviews.
Cheers from Tasmania,




    Mel – What a great story! So glad you shared it and that our reviews were helpful in you finding great games to play as a family.
