Board Games are a fantastic gift! Which ones did you get? My kids were playing basic board games at that age.
In regards to the WWYD part...
I would not ask a friend why they got board games, I would be appreciative they have gone to the effort and expense of the gifts in the first place.

Board games are great. Also depending On the game they don't have to be played by the rules either! ! I think boardgames are great ideas.
I would never question a gift like that. A gift is something that you receive without 'earning' it. ..so I would say thank you and put it away until he can play it.

I can't believe this is a question.

I would be pretty happy with it as a gift as it is something the whole family can enjoy for years. Not just when they are 2

I much rather things like that that they will keep for years and can play with friends - I think it's actually very thoughtful than yet another barbie doll or some plastic rubbish that's broken in no time.
I wouldn't say anything or do anything, if nothing else you don't need to buy them for them when they get older.

I think it sounds like a great gift! My kids all played board games with me by age 2 (but they were 'young' games such as memory,pop up pirate, mouse trap,snakes & ladders, etc - not trivial pursuit ) I think its a great quiet time to spend with your child, & great learning opportunity. Maybe your friends were a bit miffed with the quesion? It's a little rude to ask someone why they bought you a particular gift, IMO.

not very age appropriate.
Your friend sounds really immature if she's trying to be spiteful. Well that's how it comes across to me anyway.
I wouldn't mind the gift. Just put it away for later.

Oh how I wish people had bought board games instead of plastic junk year after year! No tripping over stuff, no loud noisy toys, bliss!
I have been given so much junk over the years but have never said it to anyone. Sounds like you're both being a bit precious.

Worst gift? No. Worst thank you? Yes.
