My kids are always asking me to play board games with them. But, if I can be honest with you, there are certain games I just DREAD playing with them. I love spending time with my kids, but some of those games are just not fun for adults!
That’s why I’ve worked hard to assemble a list of the BEST board games for kids and adults to play together. These are board games that everyone will truly enjoy and be excited to play!
Sorry! Classic Edition Board Game
Growing up, I can't remember a game I played more with my mom than Sorry!. We played Sorry! nearly every single week. It was a game our whole family enjoyed. It doesn't take too long to play and involves a bit of strategy and a lot of luck.
Sorry! was first introduced in the 1930's and this is a replica of the original release. I don't know about you, but I love these retro games! It's the best way to play a classic game like Sorry!.
Winning Moves Games Risk 1959
Risk is one of the best strategy games you'll ever play! It's a classic game that kids and adults will both love!
The goal of the game is to occupy every territory on the board and in doing so, eliminate the other players. It's perfect for 2-6 players, ages 8 and older.
When introducing kids to a classic game, there's no better version than the classic version! This is a reprint of the original version from 1959. When the grandparents come over, they will love being able to play the version they remember from childhood!
Parcheesi Royal Edition
Parcheesi is a classic board game that everyone should know how to play! It's the perfect game for adults and children to play together!
This version features the classic dice cups, original game board and packaging of Parcheesi. It's the version you remember from childhood!
In Parcheesi, players race to get all of their pawns into the center "home" space. You'll need to watch out for blockades and captures or else you'll be sent back to the starting point.
Clue The Classic Edition
It seems like whenever they remake a game, it's never as good as the original! I'm so glad that Winning Moves Games has released this classic version of Clue!
Did you know that Clue has been around for over 50 years?! This version is a replica of the 1949 version! This is the version I remember playing with my mom and I love being able to share it with my children now.
This game is challenging, exciting, and perfect for children and adults ages 7 and up! Make sure you have at least 3 people to play and 45 minutes of time to spare for a fun game night playing Clue!
No Stress Chess
Chess is a classic game that all kids should learn, but sometimes it can be a challenge to remember all of the rules! My oldest son loves to play chess but his siblings have struggled to learn and remember all of the rules.
No Stress Chess has been extremely helpful in teaching our kids how to play this game and learn all of the different moves of each type of piece.
After just a few times of playing this game, you and your child(ren) will be ready to flip the game board over and play without assistance!
The Game of Life - Classic Edition
Last year my daughter received The Game of Life. Only is was not a THING like I remembered it! I mean sure, there were aspects of it that were the same but it had gone through some major updates and I missed the old version I used to play.
I was SO excited to find this Classic Edition of The Game of Life for our family to play together! I used to play this game at my grandparents' house with my cousins and I'm so excited that now MY kids can play it at their grandparents' house with their cousins!
It's recommended for ages 10 and up but my almost 8 year old is able to play it. You can play this version with 2-6 players.
Don't fall for the newer version of Life - make sure you get the Classic Edition from Winning Moves Games!
Game of The States
Maybe it's the homeschooling mom in me, but I love games that are both fun and educational (without my kids even realizing it!).
In Game of the States, players race their trucks back and forth across the country - buying products in some States and selling them in other States. In this updated version, there are also fun and educational STEM facts about each state. Can you guess which state is considered the southernmost Northern state, and the northernmost Southern state?
The player with the most money at the end of the game wins!
A typical game lasts about 30 minutes and it's great for anyone ages 7/8 and up!
Pay Day, The Classic Edition
I don't know about you, but I love playing games with my kids that I played growing up! I'm so excited that the classic Pay Day game is available for a whole new group of children to enjoy! The object of the game is simple - have the most money by the end of the game!
This is a fun and educational way to help teach your children about money and all the things that go along with it.
It's perfect for 2-4 players.
Precious Cargo Board Game
So often my kids ask to play a game with me. This is the perfect game for a parent to play with a child. Since it's a 2-player game, it's great to give you some one-on-one time with your child.
With Precious Cargo, you work to build a merchant fleet and then buy and sell cargo in order to earn gold coins and win the game!
Winning Moves Scattergories 30th Anniversary Edition
This is Scattergories like you remember it! It features the original categories, buzzer, answer pads, everything! You'll have so much fun playing this game with your kids! There are enough pieces for up to six players! There are other versions of Scattergories out there (I know because we own one of them) and they are just NOT as good as this 30th-anniversary edition. Trust me, this is the version you want!
13 Dead End Drive
The game you loved from 1994 is back and ready to share with a whole new generation of game players! This re-release is just like the original game you remember!
In this game, a motley crew of Aunt agatha’s friends and employees are gathered at her Mansion for the reading of her will. Only one of these 12 specially invited guests will inherit her loot. Who will it be? Old Hickory her gardener? Her best friend Lulu? Poopsie her fluffy Cat? Or, one of Aunt agatha’s other nearest and not-so-dearest?
