Board Games – A great way to combat Boredom.
Board games have been a lifesaver for us throughout locdown. I’d like to say we are on a specific day or some hilarious and ridiculous number day in lockdown like 5609! Or that we have now started level 7 of Jumanji! But no, I think this is either week 10 or 11 in lockdown now. Keeping the kids occupied and combatting boredom is tricky. If it wasn’t for the weather boredom would be a large issue. For us Board Games with the kids have been a godsend for us beating boredom.
Here are a few Board Games we have been playing to beat the boredom:
Uno – fun family-friendly game.
Uno is a great fun Card game ideal for all the family.
With each turn a player puts down a card of the same colour or matching number. With added action cards thrown in to help you defeat your opponents. These can be pick up 2 or 4 cards. Cards to use to your own advantage by allowing you to change the colour. Miss a go and also to change the direction of play.
One board game we play a lot as a family. Find more about Uno and other versions Here.
Snakes and Ladders 3D – a classic board game.
With this one its not just any old game of snakes and ladders, but…. A 3D playing board of Snakes and Ladders. The girls have been enjoying playing this one and it’s the same as the old classic that we remember playing so well as children ourselves.
With the roll of the dice, will you be lucky enough to climb a ladder? Or… Will you land on a dreaded snake and slide further back the game board.
The aim of the game and the winner is the first to get to the finish line of the game board.
You can find yourself Snakes and Ladders 3D Here. We have the Chad Valley version.
Soggy Doggy – a fun and exciting board game.
This game is one the girls find absolutely Hillarious and is loads of fun to play. You may need a towel.
The aim of the game is to work around the game board without triggering the dog to shake. If a player makes the dog shake. Not only do you return back to the beginning but… You get wet and shook with water.
Soggy Doggy is brought to you from Ideal (John Adams) Games and you can find more about it Here.
Top Trumps, Dogs – A fun thought engaging card game.
Can’t beat a good old game of Top Trumps. We’ve been playing the Loveable Dogs set of Top Trumps. We also have the LOL Surprise set too.
A card based game, one player picks a rating from their card and whoever has the Highest wins the other players card. The game continues like this until one player has no more cards left, leaving the player with the most cards the winner.
You can find more fun Top Trumps Sets Here.
Crazy Chefs – an engaging board game for the younger children.
One I have been playing with Pig is Crazy Chefs from Orchard Toys. A great game for the younger ones.
Crazy Chefs is so much fun, not only do your children interact with play but also learn about various ingredients as you play.
You can find more games suitable for ages 2 years + available from Orchard Toys Here.
