My 5 Favorite Board Games

I wonder if there are still people who plays board games. In case you already forget, board games are any game played on a board on which the counters or other pieces are placed and moved.

Before the digital era, playing board games was one of popular games and or entertainment for kids and also adults. Many generations of kids grew up playing board games, and I am one of them.

With the continuous advancement of technology, particularly the internet, the once board games played on table top can now be played online via your computer or mobile phone.

So if you missed playing, I am more than happy to share my 5 favorite board games online.

First in my list is the Chutes And Ladders.

This game is very similar with the classic board game Snakes and Ladders, which is my favorite too. This game has 2 to 6 pieces on the playing field and the first player is allow to compete against the computer or up to 5 other human players. The moves are determined by the roll of a die wherein you advance or climb when you land on a ladder and slides or send back when you land on a chute. 

My next favorite board game is the Minesweeper Classic

Minesweeper game was the first board game I played in computer years ago. Like the original, you just click to reveal blocks. For me, this was the most thrilling game I played then because of fear of clicking on the bomb too fast and the game is over.

My third favorite game is this Checkers.

This is a simple and basic online board game wherein choose one or two players. In this game, players jump the other team's pieces to remove them from the board and reach the opposing side to become kings.

My next favorite board game is Connect 4.

In this game, you will try to connect 4 pieces in a row, which can be across, vertically, or diagonally. This game allows you to play against a second player or a computer.

My 5th favorite board game is Whack Em' All.

This game is an online simulation of the popular arcade game where in you hit moles that pop up with a hammer. Hitting a mole will give you 10 to 40 points depending on its speed, which is the faster the mole, the higher its points.  However, when you hit a bomb, 100 points will be deducted on you.

Playing online games can be a stress reliever, a great break from work or simply kills boredom. Those are the 5 online board games that you can share with your kids. But of course, always supervise them and remember that too much is too much. So make sure to regulate their use of gadgets and computers.
