Board games are a great way to have fun with friends or family. When choosing board games, consider the ages of the players, the number of people who will be playing and the type of game that appeals to you.
Different board games are suitable for different age groups. Kids' board games are generally simple and straightforward and are often educational, while adult board games are often more complex and can involve elaborate strategy and planning. Some more complex games, such as Monopoly, have "junior" versions, which are simplified for younger players.
Number of players is another important consideration. Many classic games, such as chess, checkers and backgammon, are designed for two players. Others can be played with three, four or more players. Party games often don't have a maximum number of players, and some can be played in teams.
Finally, consider what type of board game appeals to you. Strategy and simulation games, including war games, involve planning and management of resources or units. They tend to be complex and often take longer to play than other games. Abstract games, including puzzle games and word games, cultivate players' ability to recognize patterns and problem solve. Party games are intended for larger groups and come in many varieties, from abstract games to trivia. They tend to have simple rules and a short play time.
