YESSSS! MORE BOARD GAMES! PUT THEM IN MY BRAIN! (also play Cosmic on BGC you cowards :p )
My 8 year old and I are elbow deep in an Aliens: Another Glorious Day in the Corps addiction. I feel so lucky.
You should do top 10 racing games! Mostly because I just wanna hear you talk about my favorite game Flamme Rouge 🙂
MY FAVORITE CHILDHOOD GAME BETTER BE ON THIS LIST OR SO HELP YOU GOD, I will do nothing because this is your list and your opinions.
So, my favourite Childhood game was settlers of catan, But maybe I'm just weird.
I was 9 when it came out, and i saved for weeks to but it at my local supermarket.
Ahh good times.
I recommend Labyrinth with Super Mario them! My nephew is big Mario fan so, I gave him that as a Christmas present. Hi loved it!
How about a list of the 10 best Deckbuilders next? Also the 10 best expansions.
You got The hare and the tortoise rules wrong. The animals move when 4 of one animal have been played or 8 animal cards total have been played.
I bet John Cena loves to play these games with the hungry children. Wabba-do!
Plumpy loves Lumpy!
Man, my kids are just a wee bit too young, but in like 2 years we’ll be playing most of these. Solid move for Dad’s, making this video was. Thanks.
I have played a surprising amount of the games on this list without any children (proving they're just as good for adults I suppose), but I'd never heard of Stuffed Fables! Sounds almost like a kid-friendly Mansions of Madness type of game, very interesting! Gotta check that out when I get the opportunity!
My 8-year old cousin has another game as his favorite though, namely Splendor! Just goes to show how a well-designed simple eurogame can be understood by, and appeal to kids as well!
I have never laughed harder at an opening line. Well done Adam, you magnificent bastard.
Here's a recommendation for a future video: Top 10 Tempting Board Games to Avoid. Basically, give warnings on a bunch of board games that sound like they'd be great, but are either bad or have other games that do the same thing much better. Risk is a good example of a game that might sound like a grand adventure but actually is deeply flawed. Also, I can't recommend avoiding Monopoly Gamer enough. Seemed like it might do for Monopoly what Risk Legacy does for Risk, but it's a trap. It has all the same problems that regular Monopoly has if not makes them even worse.
What about some dexterity games? Like RhinoHero Super Battle or Ice Cool. Or even Catacombs vs. Castles
Otherwise it’s a great list and I have almost all of these and played most with my kids.
Lumpy sounds familiar Adam
This video peaked 3 seconds in😂
This channel is superb
Technically Adam is right, people hate him because he speaks the truth,
I all seriousness, i don't want any kinds. I'll take care of my friends' kids but don't expect me to like to do it every day
Before the list begins, I play Takenoko, Catan Junior (she likes parrots, so do I) and Munchkin with my 11 year old niece Freya, and she's very good at picking up a new game and mastering it in a single session. Cannot wait for the glorious day when we get enough people over to start a legacy game in person, and run in all year round!
Im 27 and still laughed at the bum and poo stuff on scrabble.
I love this channel and look forward to the next list!
I hope upgradeable board games gets a collection starter or video at some point, the lack of Catan on this channel and it's many brilliant expansions bothers me!
4:22 You just had to add that Vince promo there right Adam? You marky mark!
Thanks for the Forbidden Island shout-out!
Castle panic, Tsuro, Camel up, welcome to the dungeon and ghost fighting treasure hunters were all a must with our kids 🙂
I imagine for a lot of us teenager/young adults will be using this list as easy ways to get our disinterested easily confused parents playing
4:56 fun fact the guy who played Neville Longbottom now hosts the Leeds United Football Podcast and turns up to most recordings some degree of hungover, time flys eh
I get you're trying to be funny but maybe don't do a video about kid's games if you hate them so much.
As someone who works retail, the hated of children is something I feel on a spiritual level
I don't even have small children and Stuffed Fables had my jaw on the floor. I might just have to add it to my collection because… yeah, everything Adam said.
Amazing list! I have labyrinth and the Harry Potter game and they are really cool! Labyrinth is really good with kids another game that I will recommend is Outfoxed! an awesome deduction game that is really great with kids!
My four year old loves Hive, Quirkle, Bandido, and Patchwork.
I don't have kids but I have a niece and nephew, and while trying to share board gaming with them I actually played two games on this list with them to huge success: Qwirkle and King of Tokyo. Another game I played with them is Kakerlakenpoker which they also found very entertaining, but that may be because I absolutely suck at that game so that is a bunch of fun for them to watch me lose.
Mayhaps a video of popular games that have opened the door for younger players to learn their own version of it, so when they grow up, the the adult version of the games feel familiar. "Catan Junior", "My First Stone Age" (or whatever it's called), the one for Ticket to Ride, etc.
I need stuffed fables
My kids have been loving Rhino Hero. Building them up to RH Super Battle.
Forbidden island is one of my favorite board games ever, it’s so good! Also as someone who paints a lot of miniatures the stuffed fables minis look fucking awesome!
For little kids, I often recommend Sneaky Snacky Squirrels as an alternative to Candyland. It teaches color matching like candyland, but also adds a bit of strategy, and I’ve never been annoyed or bored playing it.
Forbidden Island is a game I recommend for anyone dipping their toe into the hobby. Great fun, good challenge, and best of all, under $20. So you’re not spending a lot of money if you’re not sure if you want to make a huge investment in games.
Adam would die for Lumpy..
Now that brings a sad, but joyful, tear to my heart.
If you know then you know.
Forbidden desert is better! The sun beats down!
Another great video. Thank you! I love that Adam continues to flip off the game pieces in a "Best Family Board Game" video. Hilarious!
I'd add Camel Up!, but The Tortoise and the Hare may be comparable.
See also Don’t break the Ice as an additional recommendation for a game in the same vein as click clack lumberjack.
A friend of mine has a couple of lil'uns and they're getting about the age to start playing games! I sent him this as soon as I finished watching!
Thanks for this video. I have two kids just reaching the age where we don't have to play Candy land every time. I've heard of some of these games, but had never seen them in play. And., a few I never heard of…..love that Lumber Jacks one! A couple of games out of .y collection that were easy enough to teach my seven year old and were fun for her are Cockroach Poker and Seikatsu. Can't tell you how proud and then unnerved I was when she creamed me at bluffing! We may try Jixia Academy next.
That is the most loved copy of Qwirkle I've ever seen.
