  1. I love your videos but I thought this one was slightly off the mark, or maybe my kids are a bit too young (7 & 10). Only saw 2-3 in the list that I think they'd like, the rest is a bit too brainy I think 🤔

  2. 1. King of Tokyo2. Living Forest 3. Dungeon Fighters4. Planet Unknown

  3. I love 7 Wonders Architects, just wish it lasted a little longer, feels like it's stops just as you get going.

  4. Trekking thru history or jaipur for a 2 player are also great and light family games.

  5. I would have actually guessed Horrified would be more complex than Pandemic as well…. haha!

  6. Please make (1) solo and (2) travel-sized games of all time!

  7. Challengers, Foundations of Rome, Ticket to Ride, Downforce, Marvel United, Castle Panic, Point Salad, Push…all games I would want to play that my kids and wife also play. But Quacks, 7W Architects, King of Tokyo and Klask! would be on my list too.

  8. I saw Keep the Heroes Out back there! That game is absolutely fantastic and one of my recent favorites. Probably Family+ at the lowest though, it can be legitimately challenging and is weightier. I’m assuming that’s why it didn’t make the list. If your family plays a lot of games, it could work. I would recommend you have your least experienced gamer play the Dragon, it was made to be an easier character.

  9. My favorite family game is First Rat!

    Others are
    2. Ticket to Ride
    3. Karuba
    4. Carcassonne
    5. The Quest for El Dorado
    6. Just One
    7. Telestrations
    8. Barenpark
    9. King of Tokyo
    10. The Crew

    From your list I would like to play Planet Unknown and 7W: Architects.

  10. I like Horrified better than Quacks.

  11. Yes make a family + video please. Great vid!

  12. I‘m wondering if you‘ve ever played „Tempel des Schreckens“? (Don‘t know the english title)

    It‘s one of my all time fav party games

  13. Definitely would want a Family+ list, because that's kinda where my group range is haha

  14. Really good list! Good job Janis and also Janis this time!
    I loved to see Horrified and Catch Sketch so high on the top, really love both of those games.
    A bit surprised that you didn't put Ticket to Ride, I think it's one of the safest bets for families – it's fun for almost everyone. But it has been on tons of top 10s already so kind of understandable.
    What about Cascadia? I think it's the new Carcassonne for families.

  15. Do a family +!!!

    I would include quest for el Dorado, century golem, & blue lagoon in my family list. Great picks all around.

  16. Just got dungeon fighter but not enough time to play it :')

  17. Catch Sketch seems exactly like Doodle Dash

  18. I love 7 Wonders Architects, just wish it lasted a little longer, feels like it's stops just as you get going.

  19. Lol, I really disliked Quacks of Qu.. whatever you write it in english. You basically just put some stuff in your bag and hope you pull the right stuff out and it's only push your luck. Nah.. not for me. Family games top 3: 3. Cascadia 2. Trekking through history 1. The quest for el dorado.

  20. Pretty solid List!!! would love to see Family+, Solo, maybe Coop

  21. This might be the most useful video you’ve ever made. Nice one! I feel like the length / shots of gameplay / script / pace was perfect on this one

  22. Please do a family plus list!!
    We love your videos keep up the great work guys 👍🏻

  23. Junk Art? Camel Up? Karak? Guys, your games are for families, where kids could and can play alone.

  24. Thank you for this list! I’m a board-gaming Grandma, just getting into the hobby and building my collection. Can’t wait to check these games out. And your animal noises…too cute! Ha ha.

  25. Love you Guys, fund to watch. Keep it up. Could you help us with our NEW BOARD GAME on Kick Starter? We have developed a board game and everything is ready for printing – TABERNACLE OF YAHWEH – THE BOARD GAME. We would love your feedback and review and when it is completed, we would love to send you a copy to review. We're more than happy to answer any questions.

  26. Can I please buy your copy of Catch Sketch?! Looks amazing.

  27. I noticed Catch Sketch on your lists a lot and would love to try it. Does anyone know where we can find it? Or does it go by a different name in North America? Thank you 🙂

  28. Is Long Shot better than Camel Up? My family loves and now mostly only plays Camel Up

  29. Number one and number 10 – I really need to try it. Great list for me. 😁

  30. Whats the page they used to check the pandemic weight? :O

  31. I have an 12 year old boy and a 6 year old girl. It’s hard to find a game that they would both enjoy. Do you recommend a couple?

  32. I would argue cubitos could be tied right next to quacks which surprisingly is missing from the list

  33. I would add Catan Junior, Raptor and The Pirates Flag. But as you said this is mine objective humble opinions)

  34. thanks for this, just needed to reconnect with my FAM!

  35. This is so sad. These are supposed to be family games. Nearly all of them have occult themes and or symbols involved. Thumbs down

  36. Living forest it looks good so let's tested zeb of course night night pepper zeb can body is wearing out tried my name is Heather ha

  37. I still Don't understand where these guys are from. I think from Latvia, although I'm not sure.

  38. Just got dungeon fighter but not enough time to play it :')
