      Which Game Is Considered the Most Family-Friendly Board Game?

      Board games can be a great way to bring families together – as long as the game has been designed with family-friendliness in mind. 

      Board games that are family-friendly tend to have bright, eye-catching designs that can draw people in from all age groups, as well as simple rulesets that are easy to learn and pick up. This is particularly important when playing with younger members of the family, as they might need help understanding more complex gameplay and strategies. 

      Some of the most popular family board games in Australia available at Hobbyco include Articulate, UNO Premium, and WordSpiel.   

      What Is the Most Fun Board Game?

      It depends on what you mean by fun! There are a number of factors that can dictate how enjoyable a particular board game is. 

      To start with, you have to consider the age of the participants. Very young players are unlikely to appreciate board games with complicated rules, while experienced board game enthusiasts are probably going to look for something a little more complex, like Incoherent Travel

      You will also need to think about the interests of your participants. Do they prefer battling it out in solo strategy or pairing up into teams to test their communication skills? 

      Consider, too, how long the board game is going to take to play and whether you have enough time to finish it. There’s nothing more frustrating than getting halfway through a complex game only to realise you have to pack up!

      Some of the board games available at Hobbyco we would recommend as being great fun for people of all ages and interests include:

      Sushi Go!

      If you’re looking for a quick card game that the whole family will enjoy, Sushi Go! could be the perfect solution. With brightly coloured cards, minimum rules, and an easy turn-based structure, Sushi Go! encourages strategic thinking and helps younger players better understand the laws of probability. 

      For 2 to 5 players aged 8 and above.  

      On A Scale Of One To T-Rex

      If you’re looking for a family-friendly version of charades, try On A Scale Of One To T-Rex

      Each player is given a card with an action written on it, and everyone simultaneously performs their charade. The goal isn’t to guess the action but rather the intensity of the performance on a scale from 1 to 10. Find someone on the same level as you, and you earn a point!

      A great way to encourage children to explore their acting skills and break the ice between adults. 

      Classic Bananagrams

      There’s a reason Bananagrams is enjoyed by countless people across the world. It’s simple to understand, fast-moving, and can be played by up to 8 people at a time!

      Use your letters and your imagination to build a word grid — the first to use all their tiles is the winner!

      For those who prefer a card game, give Monopoly Deal a go. If you’ve ever wanted to play Monopoly in 15 minutes, this is the game for you. The goal is to collect 3 Property Card sets in different colours, which is achieved by collecting rent and making tricky deals!
