 5 Board Games for Teens and Tweens from Toy Fair 2013

Each year that I attend the NYC Toy Fair, there seems to be more and more items for teens. I hope that you already saw my post on 12 Great Toys for Teens and Tweens from Toy Fair 2013. Here is my pick of board games for teens and tweens from the 2013 Toy Fair.

1. Opoly GamesLate for The Sky is a company that makes hundreds of variations on the classic Monopoly game. If you want it, chances are you will find it. These are categories of Opolys with an example of each:

2. Flip2BFit – This award-winning physical fitness board game is fun for the whole family. No equipment or experience are needed. As each player moves around the board they pick up cards that either have them do an activity, such as “do 7 squat thrusts” or read the card to learn a nutrition fact. The activity cards are divided into strength, cardio or yoga/stretching. What a great way for families to get healthier together.

3. Chronology - A game in which you put famous and fun events into a timeline. You don’t have to know the dates, just which came before or after each other. Great fun for 2 people or a large group. Definitely for teens and older due to difficulty levels. 
4. Big Bobble and Super Big Boggle – Boggle, the word game where you try to create as many words as possible, is one of my family’s favorite games to play together. When I saw Big Boggle, with a 5×5 grid and new double letter cube, and Super Big Boggle, with a 6×6 grid and and the double letter cube and a blank cube, I knew I had to buy at least one of them. Ages 8+.

5. Sequence – The basic Sequence board game has pictures of all the cards from a deck of cards on the board. You are dealt cards, pick one to place a chip on the corresponding card on the board. When you have 5 in a row you win. Combines both strategy and luck, because you learn to block your opponents and there are wild cards. For tweens and up. 

There are a variety of sequence games in addition to this basic one. There is also Letters, Numbers, State Capitals, Deluxe, Jumbo, Dice, Travel, Bible, Jewish, and Kids.

What are your favorite board games to play with your teens or tweens? Do you think you will purchase any of these?
