    any suggestions please.
    Chess has been a huge hit here. We all love it, and both kids have gotten really clever (beating H several times, and DSS has even beaten me once!).

    Monopoly is becoming a thing. DSS (7) struggles a little but his money skills have improved hugely since we started playing it.

    Snakes and ladders, boggle, connect 4, scrabble (again a bit of a struggle but spelling is improving fast).

    Card games are always a hit too.

    My almost 5 year old plays monopoly, trouble, uno, memory, go fish, and loves puzzles. He started a 300 piece dinosaur puzzle last night.

    I'd love to know also about some perhaps newer more unknown recent games

    My 6 year old and 5 year old DD's like Uno, not a board game but will happily play for ages. Puzzles too. We had Monopoly on Xbox One too but didn't last so long.

    many of those mentioned ... but also Yahtzee, a spelling game called Boggle (very old, not sure if they sell it anymore), game of life and battleships.

    Also DD likes to make her own board games .. (snakes & ladders type games)

    and recently we bought the shopkins game which she loves.
