What was you favorite "board" game to play when you were a child? Or, what is a game your child loves?

My son will be 6 next month, and he LOVES to play games. We have tons of games, but we need something new and I can't decide which one(s) to get him. Right now his favorites are Life, and Sorry, Dominoes, and Bingo. Oh, also UNO, and Slamwich (a card game).

If you have any suggestions, please tell!

  • Chutes and Ladders and Candyland are overdone in this house! LOL. We have Guess Who, and Monopoly Jr. and Trivial Pursuit, but he's only reading at a 1st grade level.........We have Connect Four.........Battleship is an EXCELLENT idea! He would probably love that!

    I forgot to mention that he is a whiz at games. He wins almost every time we play anything, and I don't even let him! LOL.

  • Operation is cool with a little one We have Guess Who too. Don't Break the Ice. Mousetrap was an AWESOME game, but if you lose one piece, the game is done.

  • Operation, Chutes and Ladders, and Hi-O the Cherry-O were great until about age 7. Connect 4 was a great one too.
