I’m sussing out afew options for my dd. Can anyone recommend good games for this age group that will keep them interested. We have cluedo which she enjoys. We have monopoly, 5 second rule which she has grown out of.
I’m looking at possibly; catan, sequence, jumanji.

Can anyone recommend others..??
Thankyou!!

I'd struggle to think of a better board game for big kids to play with adults than Settlers of Catan. It really is a remarkable game. We used to play a card game called Fluxx a few years ago that might be fun too, a quick google search suggests it's still available.

Also - I presume this is a bit obvious but, does she know how to play Chess yet?

They’re growing out of Game of Life by ten.

my ten year old and her friends like:

Exploding Kittens, Ticket to Ride, Catan.  As a family we like playing 7 Wonders, but it it complex enough to require an adult to play through with kids the first few times.

She quite likes sushi go but some of her friends don’t.

But the current favourite in her group, which is 10-12 year old girls is Dixit.

So my kids favourites are a mix of card and board games.
Dragonrealm and Dragonwood (card and dice with figurines is dragon realm. Dragonwood is the simpler card and dice one. Both are fun)
Tatsu (only 2 player)
Man bites dog (card)
Mystery of the temple (card)
Azul (simple and so so pretty)

Catan is one I have my eye on but my kids are not quiet to tolerating long game play yet.

Blokus and othello are great. Easy at the start but as a person matures there is so much to them

My 9.5 and 12.5 year olds absolutely love Splendour (excellent strategy game that’s easy to pick up and very fun to play) and Ticket to Ride (the cut down New York version is great for kids)

Pandemic, Catan (either jr or full versions), game of life, ticket to ride, exploding kittens (sensored version), maybe balderdash? We have a really great modern version of trivial pursuit which is a hit.

Sequence.  We played last night with my almost 10 yr old.   It’s our fave.
We also have exploding kittens which we all like.

Another option, check out Jackbox TV and the Drawful 2 game. It's hugely fun from about age 8 up,..everyone can be average at drawing but need to also be able to spell and type captions.

You need internet connection, main screen and players draw from their own device.
We play as a family, when DD (age 9) has friends over and also regularly over skype with inlaw family overseas.

We like sequence.  And bonus is it does not go on forever!

We like cards too - phase 10 and skip bo are good.

And have the benefit of being cooperative, so you win together or loose together, which is great in our house full of sore losers.


My kids love sequence, my eldest is 7 but its a great game to play together.

What a great idea for forging relationships via distance.

Seems a bit obvious, but scrabble?
ds loves catan, and there’s add ons so once they master the initial game it just gets bigger and better

My 9 yo likes Yahtzee, draughts and Chinese checkers.

Yeah it's fun when we do multi location skype as if its a corporate video conference. But the thumbnail screens are family in different lounges in NZ and us in Aus. And main screen isn't a presentation but is the game. The joking is fun as everyone joins (someone always dials in late or needs to fix their screen, just like a work call).

The kids love the family jokes and banter of the game, especially when we have 3 generations on. Because we're doing something together and talking and laughing, DD feels more connected than if was purely a chat call. But we do those too.
