- Kid's Games -
Great games for children are hard to find. A good child's game ought to both engage their attention and teach the child something through the game. When we were kids at Boards and Bites, our games were brute force learning. Candyland taught colors. Chutes and Ladders taught numbers. Memory taught... memory. While some of these games are still useful, there has been a ton of evolution in games that can be passed on to your children today. This list includes those games which are explicitly marketed towards children, but this doesn't mean that adults won't enjoy them as well!
