I'm looking for a game to play with my six-year-old daughter. I bought "Fish Eat Fish", "Nobody But Us Chickens" and "Midnight Party", and she likes playing at "Carcassonne Hunters & Gatherers", but I'm feeling like I need to play a more "girly" game with her. I've also realized that I'm not playing any "roll the dice, move your piece" kinda game with her. Any recommendation? It'd be great if my 2nd and 4th grade boys might agree to play every now and then, but the primary focus would be a game that the two of us could play.

The Geek? Yes, it's a good site. But - ah! You should have seen it before the rebranding! It was legible and a joy to read! All gone now, sadly, and so (mostly) am I because of it ...

I'm sorry, I cannot read this site regularly while the intense white background is in effect. I have eye health issues, and this is painful. I'll still make brief visits, largely for trades and rules questions, but my socializing here is done for now

Admittedly hard to find in North America, but it's a good rummy-type game of saving Australian animals. Very pretty artwork on the cards. Has three levels of play, so she can grow into more depth.

Easy-to-understand rules; a theme that obviously leans toward the feminine side of things; and the kind of challenges that will keep you entertained but not overwhelm a kid.

My girls (5 & 8) love this game, because they like to help each other out finding the puppies. Helps if your daughter is a Madeline fan.

And here is one that the boys will like too. Helps with math skills, and they have to make decisions about staying with a score or trying to make it higher, at the risk of losing it all.

I've played this card game with my friends' 7-year-old and she likes it a lot. It helps that she's a Powerpuff Girls fan but the game is pretty good either way. It's an order of magnitude more fun than playing Mouse Trap.

I'm hoping to buy this for my niece for her 10th birthday, because I am guessing that little girls will like making up a nice story and being the centre of attention. I know my niece will.

This could work. Not too complicated, and a very good game as well. I think it works with two players (can't think of any reason why not), though I haven't played it as such.

If you can find it . . .

We played this with varying numbers of kids in various different places. Only problem was that my son eventually memorized the possibilities. :-)

Dave,

Well, I said earlier on this list that I don't like memory games, but then I DO like this one, so go figure! This moves a lot faster than Enchanted Forest. You don't have to remember things as long. This feels more like a racing game than a memory game to me. We find it quite hilarious to play.

Also, if your daughter likes Dragon Tales, you can get that version very inexpensively on ebay (or if you're lucky, a thrift store).

This is a very fun game for your daughters age, and your son'e will probably like it too--but I am sure she will appreciate the little dog figures.

My friend's 6 yr old is obsessed with Littlest Pet Shop so she was forced to purchase this, but found that because she's interested in the theme it's a good way to teach some basic gaming concepts (including getting the kid to sit and focus for a period of time which has been pretty difficult up 'til now).

If she's into horses (and if you'll generally be playing with more than 2), this could be a fun pick. It's a blind-bidding racing game with very nice bits.
