The ultimate board game list to beat school holiday boredom
School holiday happiness is not having to set the alarm for the next day! It’s spending time with the squad, sunshine and snacks! BUT what happens when the bestie is away with their fam and the sun is not shining and well, you’re stuck at home with the siblings?
We have the perfect solution with this list of our all time fav board games to crank the sibling rivalry up a notch and fill in the hours/days/weeks until the squad gets back together.
How do you stack up? This game is like lego on a sugar high. It starts by you stacking the blocks to create a perfectly balanced tower. Then one by one you take turns to remove one of the blocks until the tower finally comes tumbling down.
Whether you have dreamed of being a real estate agent when you leave school or not, Monopoly is definitely a classic game of fast dealing property trading. Pick your character, roll the dice and try real hard to avoid the jail cell, all the while not going broke by participating in a property purchasing bender. Available in the classic board or in a variety of other themes including Games of Thrones, Regional Australia, Cheaters Edition, Mario Cart, Dead Pool and a tonne of others.
Game of Life
Act like a legit grown up in this game. Make big decisions like college or choose a career path that’s oh-so-you. Have babies or don’t, go on vacay, get married and buy homes. The only unfunny thing about this game is your ability to earn millions and then having to give it all back at the end of the game.
Colours, numbers, skips and reverses! Now this is a fast-paced card game that requires literally no strategy but simply a good hand of cards that will ensure you are the first to burn through your stack and scream out UNO before your opponents.
One-on-one game of strategy and strength as you take turns to blow each other’s ships out of the water. Best played with an epic intense cinematic sound track which you can easily find on Spotify to increase the tense missile guiding moves required to win the game. This is also available in an electronic version, either way its an awesome game for two.
