Best Board Games and Card Games
Here’s some brilliant board games and card games to play at home with the family. Playing games is a great way to have fun away from screens. Plus there are educational benefits such as taking turns, matching skills and learning strategies. You won’t be surprised to hear that board games and card games are some of the best-selling toys on Amazon at the moment. We’ve listed some of our favourites of the best-sellers and their variations below. If you can’t get out to the shops, we included links to Amazon [disclosure].
Board Games and Card Games – Uno
Uno is a classic card game which never seems to lose its appeal. We always take this on holiday but it’s just as good to play at home. Fast-paced and easy to pick up it’s also pretty addictive.
New in 2019 was Uno Flip where the special ‘flip’ card really changes the game.
Also available in Uno Junior for ages 7+.
Plus Uno Minecraft and Uno Harry Potter among other Unos!
Board Games and Card Games – Monopoly
Classic Monopoly is one of the best-selling games on Amazon at the moment. This is the original game but with new tokens including a dinosaur and a duck – fortunately, my favourite Top Hat is still there too! When we were younger, Monopoly would go on for days on end.
Monopoly also comes in a Junior version for ages 5+
There’s also the quick version – Monopoly Speed – which takes under 10 minutes.
And new for 2019 was Voice Banking Monopoly which uses voice recognition instead of cash and bank cards.
Plus there are loads of other editions including Friends, Stranger Things and Star Wars.
Board Games and Card Games – Dobble
Dobble is always on Amazon’s best sellers list. It’s a matching game where there’s no advantage for adults. Kids can spot the doubles as quickly as grown-ups so it makes it more fun.
New for 2019 was Harry Potter Dobble.
And there’s also Star Wars Dobble.
Board Games and Card Games – Jenga
Another classic game on the list of Amazon best-selling toys and games is Jenga. The aim of the game is to build the tower high without it falling. Suitable for ages 6+, it can get quite tense!
New in 2019 was Jenga Pass which is a challenge game where you also have to pass the blocks to the next player. Suitable for ages 8+.
And there’s even Fortnite Jenga with a twist for Fortnite fans!
Board Games and Card Games – Connect 4
Also on the list of best-selling games currently on Amazon is Connect 4. This is great game of strategy for two players. Simply get four in a row to win!
We’ve said it before but we’ll say it again – Logo is our favourite game ever. It’s called Logo is it’s actually more about brands and products. There’s a good range of old and new so it works for everyone. It’s in the Top 100 best-selling games on Amazon currently. Played best in teams, we think.
And if you’re looking for a very topical game why not try Pandemic? It is suitable for ages 8+ and has a play time of 45 mins. Stay safe.
