Board Games
Author: Andy Robertson

As well as video games we also help families find amazing board games to play. Well, we call them board games as there's not a better word, but we really mean, card games, dice games, table top games as well as board games.

Our parent experts spend time searching out the best board games for your family. These are great games in their own right, but also really popular with children who play video games too. If you are after some non-screen hobbies for your gaming children, board games are a great option.

Along with the ways to browse board games on this page, you can also use our tailored search tool. This enables you to find board games for a particular age group, or how quick they are to learn.

We group board games by the experience they offer:
  • Style of Play: How you want to play games together (Split-Screen, Co-operative, Competitive, Online).
  • Game Genres: Which interactions and game structures you enjoy (Adventuring, Racing, Puzzling, Strategising).
  • Game Pieces: What pieces you use to play the game (dice, tokens, board, figures).
  • Curated Lists: What themes you want to engage with (Trust, Identity, Justice, Hope, Love).
