Looking for some game suggestions for the 5-10 year old crowd. Specifically looking for games that have come out in the last couple of years. I did a lot of research a couple of years ago and bought games that looked good. I haven't really looked at a lot of the new games that have come out lately. Anything with an educational twist is an added bonus.

Thanks!

Paperback is the first thing that comes to mind. Its like the modern day Scrabble. It's a little over a couple of years old but I don't see it on your collection.

Games like "for sale" and "no thanks" are bidding games with a simple mechanic and help the kids to appreciate when to pay, when to pass. Nice n easy.

Paperback suggested, but might be a bit too much for younger kids?

There is a list of family games on BGG - suggest you start there.

Kingdomino has been a hit with my kids. Plenty of multiplication during scoring too. It is a gem.
Outfoxed (for the younger end of your spectrum)
Mole Rats in Space looks really good.

Sushi Go! has some good basic math/score keeping

Rhino Hero is always asked for and we've incorporated some math into it

Don't buy it from Amazon. You can buy it direct from the designer, Tim Fowers, for $24.99 + postage and taxes - https://www.fowers.games/collections/frontpage/products/pape...

I bought a copy in the UK for £20.00 last year.
It's a fabulous game, and a sequel, Hardback is currently in production.

I can also really recommend Kingdomino and Karuba.
