Best Family Home Games
As we are spending more time at home, having at our disposal a couple good games has become mandatory.
Depending on how much space you have in your home, we differentiate between compact board games and larger pub games. Some of you may have a play room at home, and others only a living room. In either case, we have compiled for you the best family games to play at home.
Starting with board games, there is the multi-player or the dual player. Our favourite board game at the moment is backgammon. It is one of the oldest board games as we can trace it back more than 5000 years ago! Usually this game is recommended for children who are 5 years old or more, however, we know of families that play with younger children. The game is super entertaining, rather fast paced and based on a mix of luck and strategy. Backgammon also nourishes your counting and math skills.

Chess is also a classic board game for two players. This game has no luck built in and is pure strategy. Although chess does not really require math skills, it does promote intelligence by forcing the player to preview, forecast and take bets for each move. We find that a good chess game very much depends on your opponent's level, and although it is a competitive game, we love playing it with good spirits.
Chess has no minimum age recommendation. You can play chess with your young child when coordinating mouvements is not a problem for them anymore. On a personal note, we love the calmness, the strategy and of course the beauty of chess sets.
The world famous dominoes game completes of our podium of the best family board games. This is a multiplayer game usually played between 2 and 4 players.
Dominoes is very fun and is a mix of luck and strategy. Good players can implement a strategy depending on their game and counting what is on the table currently played.
Dominoes have no minimum age requirements, and will be a great and fun game to teach your child basic math and arithmetic skills. A fun game for the whole family.

With the above said, we also love a great classic pub style football table game. Today, manufacturers are creating beautiful design football tables, at very reasonable price points. As we have discussed in a past post, we recommend you never buy a cheap football table, as it is worth to put some extra money or save a little more and buy a real quality football table. The difference in price largely justifies the difference in quality.
Football table is an awesome game to play with adolescent children and adults. It's more of a male type of game, but we are seeing a boost from female clients and players in these last few years, as part of a more global trend where women are participating more in football. In short, it's a great game to have in a family home.
