Hi Everyone,

My kids and I love board games but we have grown tired of our old ones and would like to get some new interesting and adventurous games. We have recently come across Cornish Smugglers which looks like a brilliant game, however after reading some reviews it sounds like it might be too advanced for my youngest.

Thanks

Black Fleet is a nice pick up and deliver game with pirates! And, it's got some interesting card play and excellent components.

Smash Up also worked well with my, then 11 or 12 yr old, Little Brother.

My 11-year-old nephew really enjoyed Carcassoonne (mentioned above), and Colt Express. I believe he also plays Star Wars: Imperial Assault with his older brothers. However, there is quite a learning curve on that one (haven't played it personally). FUSE and Dice Masters might be good if you all like dice.

I am going to make some recommendations based on the limited information I have. I assume you are looking for 4 player games?

So my criteria are:
good for 4 players
30-60 minute playing time
Not too complex, but fun for preteens, teenagers, and adults


Alhambra
Catan
Stone Age
Ticket to Ride
Incan Gold

If you provide some information about how many players you usually have, and what games you already enjoy, it might help us make more targeted recommendations. Thanks :)

In my experience with my boys in that age range, the biggest hits have been:

Sentinels of the Multiverse
King of Tokyo
Ticket to Ride
Smash Up
Suburbia
Sheriff of Nottingham
The Resistance: Avalon
Lords of Waterdeep

Suburbia was the surprise hit. Neither one wanted to play it, but after they did, it tops their suggestions when asked what game to play.
