Anne's Favorite Games - June 2020

Happy birthday to me! My birthday is this month so I would like to share the ten games that are my current favorites. We play a lot of games and we have a lot of favorites but these are the ones that are currently getting a lot of playtime in my house.

Uno Moo.JPG

Uno Moo!

Uno for toddlers - although my older kids enjoy this too! No cards to bend or tear, just cute little plastic animal figures you place into a barn. Great choice for a first board game for a child.

Age: 2-6

Players: 2-4

Rating: 10/10

Yamslam

Like Yahtzee but quicker and more strategic with cool poker style chips and a self contained board with felt so there's no loud dice rolling to make you crazy. Everyone loves this game.

Age: 6-Adult

Players: 1-4

Cat Crimes.jpg

Cat Crimes

Logic puzzles + cats = great fun. It can be tricky to find games my daughter really enjoys and this is one of them. She loves it when we sit down together and figure out which is the naughty kitty on one of the challenge cards.

Monopoly Deal.JPG

Monopoly Deal

All of the fun of Monopoly with a little more strategy and you can play in 20 minutes or less! It's one of the cheapest games on this list and one of the best.

Age: 8-Adult

Players: 2-5

Dragonrealm.JPG

Dragonrealm

Grown-up, more strategic version of Dragonwood. Try to capture magical locations in this version and watch out for sneaky goblins. If I wasn't already playing this with my 8 year old son on repeat I would be playing it for adult game nights.

Age: 8-Adult

Players: 2-4

Outfoxed.JPG

Outfoxed!

Cooperative whodunit, discover which fox stole the pie! I enjoy playing this with my kids and they enjoy playing this with each other on their own. This is one of my go-to birthday gifts.

Age: 4-10

Players: 2-4

Latice.JPG

Latice

It's kind of like Uno meets Scrabble with tiles of different pictures and colors you're trying to play on out the board. Simple premise, fun and challenging to play and win, and their newest version of the game board is beautiful. A great family game.

Age: 6-Adult

Players: 2-4

Rating: 9/10

Monster My Neighbor.jpg

Monster My Neighbor

Love Letter meets One Night Ultimate Werewolf. It's a strategy game but it's hard to take it too seriously and we love it for game nights with friends. Cards get passed around as you try to determine who has the monster card so you can catch them in time!

Age: 7-Adult

Players: 3-8

Rating: 10/10

Star Realms.JPG

Star Realms

Deck building game with sci-fi theme, I've been addicted to campaigns on the app since October. This is also a great game for remote play if you use the app. Free to try and inexpensive to purchase the full version.

Eight-Minute Empire Legends.JPG

Eight-Minute Empire: Legends

It feels like Risk meets Small World but it plays in much less time. You're still questing for world domination but the cards you strategically select and purchase allow you to gain bonuses and place and move your armies. Fantastic game, this is currently my favorite game to play with my husband.

Age: 13-Adult

Players: 2-4
