Board and Card Games to introduce to my kids - Reccomendations?
Seeking suggestions for board and card games to introduce to my 2nd grader... she LOVED stuff like chutes and ladders, candyland, kids monopoly, jenga. I like jenga, but I'm getting tired of candyland, chutes and ladders, etc. (that was primarily 1st grade...think she's growing out of it as well)
That said here are the parameters:
- would like to go a bit off the grid from the typical Milton Bradley games.
- rule sets should be pretty simple and straightforward... 2nd grade level.
- little to no set-up / preparation. prefer ready to play within 5 minutes or less...nothing where it takes 20 minutes or more to set up.
BONUS: would be kinda cool to prep her for nerd stuff down the road....like Settlers, maybe Space Hulk...you get the idea.
