I am sure you agree that sometimes it is nice to throw in a game where the kids don’t compete against each other but rather work together toward a goal as a team.
Whoowasit? (2-4 players, 45 min) My kids are getting old for this one but they used to love it.
Forbidden Island (2-4 players, 30 min)
Forbidden desert (2-5 players, 45 min)
Pandemic (2-4 players, 45 min)–there is also Pandemic Legacy etc.
Escape (1-5 players, 10 min)
