Family Board Gamers – About Us

As a family we love to play board games together regularly. Personally I love board games of all types and as my family grows up I am always looking for board games to introduce them to this amazing past time.

Currently we are relentlessly playing Enchanted Forest and Snakes and Ladders with my 5 year old. She loves Enchanted Forest! I am slowly trying to introduce Ticket to Ride First Journey but she is still a bit young.

My wife and I often play when we find the energy. At the moment our favorites are Ticket to Ride Europe, Carcassonne, Villainous and Forbidden Desert at the moment. We are also quite taken with Takenoko which was one of the first games we played together.

I started this blog to share our journey with you and as my family grows up to share the game we love to play. Our hope is that we can share with you the best board games for your family.
