Checklist For Family Games

Age Recommendation
  • To ensure that the whole family has fun, games should be selected according to age recommendations.
  • Many games take into account the sometimes large age-specific differences.
  • For younger children (from 4 years) it is recommended to take funny games that are easy to understand. Older children (from 6 years) can already play strategic and complicated games.
  • A selection of games allows for compromises. So everyone is satisfied and all interests are covered.
  • Younger children should not yet necessarily play to win or lose (better: common goal). Here the focus should be on fun.
Boundary Conditions
  • How much time do you have available and how long does the game last? The duration of the game always depends on the number of participants. Some games can be played within half an hour. But there are also games (Monopoly) that can take several hours.
  • It is also important to consider the age of the children with regard to the duration of the game. Smaller children cannot yet concentrate as long as older ones. If a game lasts too long, they may lose the fun. with increasing age, children can concentrate longer.
  • How many players want to play (if necessary, form a team)? There are games that can be played with more players or in groups. For a game, you need at least 2 players. How many players can play depends on the game? Usually, up to 6 people can play.
  • Is the game appropriate for the age of the players? For children, for example, games that revolve around funny topics are suitable, so you can laugh together. An example of this would be the Schmidt games. For adults and children over the age of 8, longer or more complex games such as Monopoly are also suitable.
Benefits
  • Family games not only strengthen the relationship with your family, but also encourage and challenge your children. This can have a positive effect on their concentration and teamwork skills.
  • Kids also learn how to interact with others and strategic games can speed up the thinking process.
