TOP FIVE BOARD GAMES
These days kids spend a lot of time playing on their pads and phones, but there are great board games you can play that are just as much fun as phone games. And you can play them with your friends!
- Monopoly: Monopoly is a game for approximately 2 – 8 players. Players move around the game-board buying or trading properties, developing their properties with houses and hotels, and collecting rent from their opponents, with the goal being to drive them all into bankruptcy leaving one monopolist in control of the entire economy. We love Monopoly at Ajapaworld because it is all about the money.
- Chess: Chess is an intense game for just 2 people. Each player begins the game with 16 pieces: one king, one queen, two rooks, two knights, two bishops, and eight pawns. Each of the six piece types moves differently. The most powerful piece is the queen and the least powerful piece is the pawn. The objective is to ‘checkmate’ the opponent’s king by placing it under an inescapable threat of capture.
- Scrabble: Scrabble is a game for 2 – 4 players. Scrabble is a word game in which players score points by placing tiles, each bearing a single letter, onto a game board which is divided into a 15×15 grid of squares. This is a great game for people who are good at spelling and who have a good vocabulary.
- Game of Life: The Game of Life is for 2 – 4 Players and it has a lot in common with Monopoly. The winner is the person with the most money at the end of the game. However, rather than properties, this game focuses on life’s milestones – birth, school, marriage, work etc.
- Cluedo: This game is for 3 – 6 players. The object of the game is to determine who murdered the game’s victim, where the crime took place, and which weapon was used. The first person to guess correctly wins. This game is perfect for the individual who loves murder mysteries.
