  • We always played Monopoly and now my Gr-Kids seem to like it also, my S/O likes it more than I do, but I'll play just bec they want to. I played it SOOOOOO much as a child I guess I'm just tired of it, I prefer scrabble, so I've gotten a couple of games in of that also.

  • I never play candy land till I had kids. Mine are only 6, 5 and 3 and they can play it without assistance and I love it! They espceially love when they beat mommy or daddy. I also like to play go fish with them because they are finally catching on to who has asked for what card.

  • Try looking at the websites for Mayfair games and Looney Labs. They have lots of great family oriented games that focus on teamwork or strategy instead of domination (like Hasbro and Parker Bros). The games these companies sell let all player stay in until the end and play, unlike the domination games where people who aren't doing well are eliminated. Little kids don't do well when they aren't allowed to continue to play. We go to gaming conventions every summer, two weeks from now is Origins in Columbus and July had GenCon in Indianapolis. They have lots of companies selling board games and offering demos so you can see if you like it. Origins is more family oriented than GenCon, IMO, and they offer a family badge for like $10.
