Take a look at our list below and find out what board games to play with every kind of visitor to your new David Wilson home.
- Trivial Pursuit – one to play with parents
This classic is one of the all-time great board games. With simple rules where success depends solely on your knowledge and interests, every player has their own field of expertise. And after nearly 40 years on the shelves it’s loved by adults of all ages.
- Snakes & Ladders – one to play with kids
With origins that can be traced back to 2nd century India, this practically ancient game only takes a dice roll and some luck to win. It’s easy to understand – ladders take you up, snakes slide you down – and it gives children a gentle introduction to the concept of winning and losing.
- Takenoko – one to play with the whole family
- Concept – one to play with friends
Concept requires your attention, and a little insight into the minds of your friends. Using a board filled with different categories of icons, players must pick a word, name, or phrase from a card, and then place counters to illustrate it to others. All without saying a word.
- Monopoly – one to play with rivals
- Dungeons & Dragons – one to play together
- Pass the Pigs – one to break the ice
- Pandemic – one to play for just the two of you
The co-operative Pandemic is just as fun with only two people. Working together to battle a series of global virus outbreaks, players move across the board and carefully choose whether to treat local populations, or research cures – under the constant threat of a new outbreak occurring at any moment.
