    Try this one - apples to apples. It's funny and starts interesting conversations. We tried the Apples jr. for 8+. My dd7 loved it.

    How about Boggle, anyone? We played it as a family for hours when I was growing up. My kids love playing Scrabble, too.
    Another vote for Apples to Apples--my children like to play with their cousins (junior version). And I don't remember if anyone mentioned Yahtzee Turbo --I was never a fan of the classic game but I like this version.

    Boggle, Scrabble & Yahtzee can also be found as computer games & online. So can Apples to Apples--I just found it APPLES to APPLES

    Lucounu, of your earlier list, we've tried Hedghog Escape. DS loves it! Plus the hedghogs are cute, which always works around here.

    Oooo.... crazy machines looks fun! Would you say it's for all ages, or younger, or about what age?

    We like Mancala too. We also have quiddler.

    Added all the suggestions, promoted Hedgehog Escape, and added a link from the other thread to this one. Keep 'em coming!

    Anyone know anything about Camelot Legends? DS claims he wants it for Christmas and it looks like it would be right up his alley. Cat

    Pandemic and Ticket to Ride get played all the time around here. Scotland Yard is another favorite, but you need at least 3 players to play that one. My son is 9, and we have been playing those games for over a year.

    We love a lot of games on your list! We also enjoy games from Outset Media (especially Rhyme Thyme when they were littler, Professor Noggin, and, our favourite--Artifact--has been a terrific game for all ages), and from Family Pastimes (various cooperative games: Growlies in the Garden, Secret Door, Harvest Time, Depot Diner, Granny's House, etc.--these are mostly for littles, too.)

    Oh dear, what a poorly-written sentence that was. Oh well.

    minniemarx, your sentence was so poorly written that I printed it and stuck it for safekeeping inside my greasy spam handbag, as a cautionary example I can wave at small children, sending them into scared submission (or at least a bored slumber).

    Your suggestions are added. You did mean the board game Artifact, and not the software, correct?

    Pandemic and Scotland Yard look neat too-- hadn't seen those. Thanks, blueskidoo.
