6 fun board games for the whole family

Board games are one of the best things to do with your family (examples, online Sudoku). Thanks to logical riddles, you can help a child with school subjects, so much so that he will not notice it. Therefore, quickly break away from the screens of phones and tablets and meet face to face with rivals: turtles, pirates, medieval knights. We have broken down the list of games by age so that any child can plunge into the world of adventure.

1. "Domovyata"

Number of players: 3 to 9 people
Playing time: 10 - 15 minutes

Amusing little householders have settled in your house. Do not panic, they are not at all fans of painting wallpaper with felt-tip pens, and they do not need to feed your cat with valerian. But the housewives love to play hide and seek, and in order to find them all, remarkable vigilance and attentiveness will be useful to you. Children can easily compete with adults in this fun game - board, floor and even all-apartment.

You yourself can agree on whether it is possible for the leading Host to be given hints ("hot" - "cold"), as well as about the time given to the players to search for hidden houses. Who exactly will help them hide - the players themselves or, for example, parents - depends from the rules you choose.

2. "Read-grab"

Number of players: from 2 to 5 people
Playing time: from 5 minutes

The game is simple and very fun, both for children of any age and gender, and for their parents. In the rules, you will find several levels of difficulty, which you can then still increase yourself. To play, you need a stable and fairly spacious horizontal surface (a table, for example, a floor, or something original) and a good mood.

How to win? Collect the most tokens by the time there are 5 draws on the table. You will read there, there are also all sorts of bonuses and penalties.

3. "Secrets of the Sea"

Number of players: 2-4 people
Playing time: 10-20 minutes

Secrets of the Sea is a simple and fun 2-in-1 game for the whole family. Go in search of countless treasures hidden by the sea. On the way to the secrets of sunken ships, adventurers will have to face the elements and sea monsters

These simple and fun games are also very useful: they create conditions for training the eye, coordination and fine motor skills of the hands. By counting the collected prize tokens, children will learn how to count, and the exchange table will help you easily and quickly learn the composition of numbers within 20, teach you how to perform addition and subtraction with a transition through the digit, prepare for solving numerical expressions for multiplication and division.

4. "Imaginarium Childhood"

Number of players: 4 to 7 people
Playing time: 30 to 60 minutes

This is a new version of the Imaginarium with kind and cute illustrations. Toy ducklings, a girl with a month, an octopus at a picnic - looking at these cards I want to smile. Therefore, it is perfect for a cozy home game with young children. And it will definitely appeal to all those who continue to believe in miracles, despite the age indicated in the passport.

5. "Colonizers"

Number of players: 3-4 people
Playing time: more than 60 minutes

The strategy board game will throw you into the utterly wild and untouched island of Katan. What does a person do when he falls into the arms of the wild? Uses its resources to build settlements, roads. What does he do when he has mastered all the available territories? He seeks to expand his possessions, communicates with neighbors, and, of course, creates an army.

The game develops both ingenuity, and the speed of counting, and cooperation, helps to learn to agree and think for yourself and other players, to calculate their moves.

6. Sudoku by GREEN PANDA

As an ardent free online Sudoku fan, I've been looking for a really handy app for a long time that allows you to click the number puzzle with maximum comfort. My search ended when I (quite by accident) discovered the web Sudoku in the Android Market. In my opinion, this is the best Sudoku program ever created by mankind. Automatic color highlighting of numbers, pencil, unlimited undo, several types of prompts, automatic filling of possible candidates - this is just an incomplete list of functions of this excellent application. The game is available in paid and free versions, the free one allows you to solve one puzzle per day for each difficulty level.
