I’ve played lots of games — some good, some terrible and some stellar.

From time-to-time, I’ll use this blog to focus on some older games I love in my Retro Gaming the 70s & 80s posts or new games I’m just learning through my New Game Weekend reviews.

    • Risk definitely falls in that age range, as does Battleship, but both are by their nature based on combat.

      We play Settlers of Catan as family but need to help Jules (at age eight) with some card reading. Ticket to Ride falls at about the age 10 mark too, and we all play it together. These are both great, smart, good looking games without a combat element.

      There are also a couple shape-fitting games like Blokus and Cathedral where you take turns placing shapes on a board, blocking out your opponent. These are great for planning, spatial understanding and strategy, again without the warfare element.
