6 Board Games You Should Play With Your Kids While In Lockdown

May 6, 2020

With the country entering its sixth week of lockdown, finding something to pass the time can be tricky. So, why not have a games night with the family? - the ones that live in your household, of course! There are plenty of fun, exciting and time consuming games out there that are available online, and perfect for home delivery! So, to keep you and your family inspired, we've picked out 6 of our favourite board games you should consider playing with your kids while in lockdown.

Of course, when choosing a good board game for you and your little ones to play, there are things you should consider. Like playing age, the number of people that can participate, and whether it is too complicated for little minds.

Monopoly

Playing age: 4+Monopoly Board Game

Monopoly is everybody's favourite high-stake board game. It has been causing rifts in families since 1935 - and still remains firmly popular. Though, there are many different variations out there that you can buy, like Disney Monopoly, Fortnight Monopoly or Harry Potter Monopoly - whatever your little ones are in to.

So, how do you play this game? Well, I am sure you already know. This depression-era game can take several hours to complete, with its objective being that you should own as much property as possible - being the richest means you will win. But, this is why Monopoly can take so long to complete, as the richest person can lose their fortune with a roll of the dice - just like in real life. Usually, the monopoly board ends up on the floor before the game is over!

Horrible Histories - The Board Game Horrible Histories The Board Game

Playing age: 8+

Every young millennial remembers Horrible Histories - right?! We'd come home from school and binge watch before binge watching was even a thing!

Well, now you can get your little ones excited and enthralled with this horrible board game that is designed for 2 - 4 players - So, why not test your kids gruesome knowledge of the past?

From the Rotten Romans to the Vile Victorians, this amazingly entertaining game will take you and your little ones on a journey through time. Move around the board by answering questions from three (usually very odd) answers, but watch out for Rattus and his horrible chance cards - you could end up being press-ganged into the navy or accused of witchcraft! This nostalgic board game guarantees hours of fun with over 600 questions, foul facts and hilariously misleading possible answers.

  Z-Man Games "Pandemic" Pandemic by Z-Man Games

Playing age: 10+

If living through an actual pandemic isn't enough, let your little ones step into the shoes of doctors and scientists as they work together to stop the spread of a global outbreak! With the fate of mankind on the line, all players must take on key roles and apply their creative problem-solving skills in ways that are incredibly complex, strategic and fun!

This game is ideal for teens and adults and is designed for 2 - 4 players.

Cluedo Junior Cluedo Junior

Playing age: 5+

Much like Monopoly, Cluedo is a firm family favourite - it has been around since 1943 and has been adapted into different themes and versions!

With death being the key theme surrounding the mystery of the original Cluedo, Cluedo Junior is much more kid friendly - and is perfect for you and your little ones to play while in lockdown.

Instead of hunting for a murderer, you and your little ones will be on a mission to discover who took the last piece of cake and ate it! Players roll the dice and travel around the board with the aim of moving characters and looking under furniture for clues - as they find the clues, they eliminate choice and discover what really happened.

Join Dr Orchid, a genius biologist with a sweet tooth to unmask the cake thief - But, don't worry, all of the strategy and fun of classic cluedo is still involved!

Jumanji Jumanji Board Game

"A game for those who seek to find a way to leave their world behind"

If your little one is a lover of the Jumanji films, why not take the risk and treat them to the real thing - but don't be surprised if the sound of those drums echo through your home!

Charging Rhinos, stalking Lions and other dangerous creatures live in the world of Jumanji - they're just a dice roll away. With 2 - 6 players, dare to roll the dice and move through the jungle, until you draw a danger card! Use your decoder to discover the secret message and keep your fingers crossed that disaster doesn't strike!
