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.

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.
