Games I own, and how my 7-, 8- and 10-year-olds like them.
- David G.(davebo)United States
Some background on my kids:
The 7yo (girl) and 8yo (boy) tend to go for the lighter things. Anything that lasts too long bores them. My 10yo (boy) is my little gamer. I can get him to play a lot of stuff, and he loves going to the local gaming events.
I've sorted the list by BGG rank, not necessarily by my opinion of the game.
The unfortunate truth about games and kids is that 'Your Mileage will vary'. You never know from one kid to the next what's going to work. There are some games that went flat with my kids that work like gangbusters with others.
And, let me give my usual disclaimer: I freely state that some games work better with boys than girls, and vice versa. Since I have more boys than girls, and since my big gamer is a boy, I tend to focus on 'boy games'. If you find this offensive or obnoxious, please go complain to someone other than me. You won't change my opinion, and I'll just ignore you.
