When we geeks think about game categories we tend to think 'euro-ameri', 'light-heavy', 'number of players', 'mechanism' etc etc.

Recently it dawned on me that there is a category of games that makes me, as a dad, very sad! It's a category of games that, me as a dad of only boys, shuts me out completely: Games that are designed to be played by Mums .... ! cry

I hope that the games I found are the only ones that exist in this category. But if you find more, add them.

Oh, and if anyone has an appropriate name for this category, we might suggest it to Aldie.

What could be more fun than making gingerbread?

Fotunately the publisher realised their mistake of shutting dad's out and also published the game with a different cover:


Three users with suspiciously male names ignored the fact that this game is mum-daughter-only.

Another food-related theme for a mum-only game (is this theme overrepresented?). At least this time sons are allowed to play too.

A Tom and a Jeffrey admit owning this mum-game.

On second thought: the mouse and mousetrap in this one do not seem be very mum-friendly. Maybe that explains why it only has 2 owners.

THE PERFECT MUM-ONLY GAME!

191 owners! Gets some pretty good ratings, although Geek Mommy Helenoftroy gave it a 2 and got rid of it ...

I stared a long time at the person in the back, and I cant decide whether this is a mum or a girlfriend .... [please help categorizing this game!]

Anyway user MathTradeMod (who lives in Puerto Rico, so he must know something about boardgames) rates this game a 10!
