My First Castle Panic has turned out to be a perfect family board game for us. Having a 3-year-old and a 3 year age gap between our kids always makes it a truly remarkable experience when we find a game that legitimately works for all of us in the spirit of a true family game night.
Our son’s imagination is very strong, and he’s prone to get super excited when he gets his hands on something like Zombie Kidz Evolution and its tracking system. And the more he heard about this board game, the more excited he got.
The newest addition to our collection of family games is Gnomes at Night - a cooperative maze game. But this time when I say cooperative, I really mean it. Cooperation is not a choice in Gnomes at Night, and that’s what makes it special.
You’ve likely noticed us mention Peaceable Kingdom more than once. They specialize in publishing cooperative games for young kids, and we absolutely love them. So, to spread the love, this month we are giving away 2 copies of our favorite Peaceable Kingdom game - Race to the Treasure!.
As a parent, it’s always special when the kids achieve milestones of independence. Recently our 2-year-old reached a new one, and a very memorable one. She finally reached a stage where she can play through an entire board game completely independently. Hooray!
We think it’s helpful to be able to share our strategies and logic with the little ones. And playing cooperatively with a common mission is a great way to introduce children to the whole point of playing board games - to have fun.
One of our family’s favorite video games to play together is Luigi’s Mansion, and Ghost Fightin’ Treasure Hunters makes us happy for many of the same reasons. The artwork and the ghost figurines are a very high-quality, cartoony style.
Imagination and role playing can be the very best part of board games with the family. This certainly holds true with Mole Rats in Space - a game by Matt Leacock and Peaceable Kingdom. These mole rats are in space? We better put on our astronaut costume!
