Below, I am going to give you a list of some of my favorite board games to play. Prepare yourself for my 7 fun board games to play …

7 Candyland

I remember playing Candyland when I was a little one. This is definitely a fun game that every little girl should take part in. When I had a little girl, I couldn’t wait for her to get out of the baby stage to play Candyland. In fact, I remember playing it with her when she was a baby, but I am sure she does not remember that one.

6 Mouse Trap

I could not imagine not being able to play board games. Every time I look in the aisle with board games, I come across ones that I have never even heard of. Of course, it’s usually my daughter who points it out. So, I am going to ask you – what is your favorite board game and why do you like playing that game? Do you have any childhood memories of playing these games?
