The best children games for 2 years and older 2021

In 2021 looking for a good game for your child from 2 years? Our overview lists card, dice and board games that can be played by children (and adults) between the ages of 2 and 4.

At what age should children play board games?

We often get the question from what age we recommend to play board games. This, of course, depends entirely on the child's stage of development. Some children as young as 18 months can play the recommended games on this list without any problems - some don't feel like playing board games until they are 36 months old. In any case, we would recommend not giving up at the first refusal. If the child rejects the game, just try it again in a few weeks.

What board games from 2 years?

It is important that the needs and abilities of very young children are taken into account and considered - sensible encouragement and challenge is required here. We have paid close attention to what two-year-old, three-year-old and four-year-old children need and can do. The games listed here should neither under- nor overchallenge your kids.

The best board games for all ages

For those who have kids of a different age, we've created more lists with board games separated by age group.

A list of games for kids of all ages can be found here: The best children's games.
