Board Games for a 12 Year Old
Board games are fun to play
Playing board games in a video game world is a refreshing experience.
Personally, I grew up on board games and cards. One day of every week, we would have family night of cards or a game. We would pop popcorn or make some other snack. It was a fun night and something I miss doing. My husband got tired of losing to me. But whenever my daughter is around we try to get a game or two in.
These are my picks for what a 12 year old would like to play with.

Fundex Games Quoridor Classic - As easy as checkers, and a lot more fun!
The game play is simple: on each turn, either move your pawn one space closer to the finish line, or use one of your two-square wide tiles to block your opponent's progress (you start with ten of these), but you can't completely block them in. Whoever gets there first, wins! Each game takes on its own personality, as new strategies constantly evolve.
The aim in this award-winning game is to get your pawn across to the opposite side of the playing board. But should you move your pawn or erect a fence to slow your opponent's advance? The difference is that there are wooden fences one erects to block the progress of and force a different route upon an opponent. Choices don't come easily in this game of mazes and madness. 2-4 players, ages 6 and up. The game includes 20 fences, 4 wooden pawns & instructions.
Flibbix - Easily build your own amazing board game
This is the type of game for Louis and Lynn to put their thinking caps on. Both children are creative. It will be interesting to see what types of games they create.
Flibbix isn't just a board game-it's every board game, because kids create their own! Players make the game board using a wide variety of game tiles, then create the rules by checking them off the Make Your Own Rules Sheet. Build and play for twice the fun. There are endless possibilities for game play - experiment and find your favorite.
JINX Game - Fun for everyone
Fun to yell jinxed and that person has to start all over again. A straight forward game and easy to learn.
In fast-action JINX, the next roll of the dice could make or break you. Race to line up your game pieces on the game board grid. Then, just when you're getting close, Jinx! -- you duplicate a previous roll and you are forced to start all over again by removing all of your pieces from the board. Roll one black die, one white die and you have 9 game pieces to attempt to line up 3 of your pawns horizontally, vertically or diagonally and win the round. There is even room for some revenge - the right roll might let you knock an opponent's piece off the board. So throw the dice and let the good times roll! Includes game pawns, black die, white die, game board, score pad, pencil and instruction sheet.
