Games suitable for 7 & 8 year old and up!
We at My First Games believe in recommending games to you only if they're not too boring for the adults to play again and again - coz we know that's what your kids would make you do. Which is excellent since you're spending quality time together, but can be a bit of a pain if the game is too boring for you. Hence, we do our research for you! We trawl and read the reviews on the many boardgame websites and view hundreds of youtube videos to shortlist good games on your behalf.
Kids at 7 & 8 age would and should be able to play games with their full instructions, and they can cope with more math and more advanced concepts and correlations than they could a few years before.
This will aid in their understanding of the games they have been playing and lead them to create their own strategies for winning and overcoming obstacles in the game. Learning from the pros and cons of the strategies they have formed would make their victories all the more satisfying for them. This is also a great learning experience for them on many counts.
Most kids from 7 or 8 years of age would be able to play games meant for grown ups ("adult games" sound very wrong, you see). Hence kids of this age should be able to play most if not all the games in the family games section which we will progressively add games to.
Nevertheless, kids will be kids and it will still be fun for them to play games designed with their age range in mind, as the themes for grown-up's games may not be as appealing to kids of this ages as those meant for them.
There are also kids who have not been exposed to boardgames may not take to games as easily as those who have been - and hence they may need 'simpler' games to ease them into the world of boardgaming.
