About Board Games

For many people, board games are the first gaming experience that they have ever had. From family game nights playing Monopoly, to late-night quests in Dungeons and Dragons, most people have had plenty of great moments playing board games.

In our Coolmath Games playlist, we have plenty of board games that will give players the same fun and communal gameplay experiences. Go head-to-head against one of your friends in Checkers, try to outsmart them in Strategic Tic-Tac-Toe, or strategize against them in Dots and Boxes. There are just so many different ways to have fun in our Board Games playlist.

What are the most fun board games?

The most fun board game varies from person to person. However, we have a few recommendations for those of you who are looking for a new board game to test out.

If you are a fan of luck-based games, we recommend trying out Ludo. In Ludo, must try and move their pieces all the way around the board and to the home base in the center of the map. To do this, you must roll a die and move to spaces that correspond to which number you roll.

Interested in something a little bit more strategic? One of the most popular board games on our site is Reversi. The goal of Reversi, also known as Othello, is to get as many of the tiles of your color on the board. Surround other tiles with your color to switch them over to your side.

To learn more about Reversi, check out our Coolmath Games blog all about how to play Reversi. We not only teach players the rules of Reversi, but some great tips & tricks to help you beat your opponents.

In the United States, the most popular board game varies from state to state. The usual suspects are Chess, Checkers, and Backgammon. This should come as no surprise, considering that all of these games are both extremely fun to play, and great games to play if you want to go up against a friend.
