A lot of classics got a major upgrade.
When it comes to indoor activities for kids, is there anything more cozy, fun, or memorable than family game night? (Fine: family movie night and watching the best Disney Christmas movies. But that's it. And now you can even combine the two activities with the Hallmark Channel Monopoly Board Game.) We still get a jolt of genuine excitement whenever a rainy or snowy day comes around, giving the whole family an opportunity to get together and roll the dice. Of course, things get a little trickier once you're actually a full-fledged grown-up. Now, in addition to playing the games, you've got to pick and plan them too. Womp.
But that newfound power doesn't have to come at the expense of your own fun. Here, we've done the research for you and found the absolute best board games for kids in 2020. Thousands of glowing Amazon reviews can't be wrong—especially when they're coupled with our own board game expertise. We've made sure to include every option for you and your family, from the classic (Candy Land, Trivial Pursuit, and more) to the newfangled (Bananagrams) and even the cult-favorite (Settlers, anyone?). These games also make great gifts for the holidays. Dive into our picks, then set a night, choose a team, and get playing.
