Rush - Strategy and card games

 I stuck with games that can be played in 30 min or less, and arranged them roughly by age appropriateness, from younger to older.  Below are a few things to note:

  • Bestsellers and/or award winners - Taco Cat, Bandido, Gobblet Gobblers, Kindgomino, Dragonwood, Qwirkle, Machi Koro, Azul
  • Cooperative games - Cahoots, Bandido, Forbidden Island, Mole Rats in Space
  • Chess-like abstract games for two players - Quoridor, Hive, Aqualin, Gobblet Gobblers
  • For kids who like to see a fun-looking board on the table - Froggit, Ticket to Ride First Journey, Labyrinth, Space Race
