Engaging Board Games for Children
The modern world offers a lot of toys to enjoy. Although video titles lure kids like magnets, there are a lot of decent alternatives. Board games for children have something that on-screen toys lack. Emotionally charged atmosphere and physical presence are what make them special. Check out this selection:
Candy Land (4+)
A color-based map offers to complete a path, filled with obstacles. 2-4 participants make moves in turns after pulling out a colored card. If it is orange, the token goes to the closest orange section and so on. Some locations send back, while others boost the progression. A tip: use a timer, as the process can be endless.

A vocabulary riddle played with up to 4 people. Earn scores by constructing words with letter tiles and placing them on a grid. With 7 random letters, the goal is to get more points. As each letter has a different value, the number of words doesn’t determine the winner. Plus some squares allow you to multiply the points by 2 or 3. Making moves in turns, players either place a word on the board, exchange tiles, or pass.

When you start the tile-based journey, the field is empty. The participants create a map from nothing, building roads, cities, and protection walls. The more completed constructions there are, the more points one gets. And wins in the end.
