The lists below are broken down by recommended youngest age. Don't shy away from games with a young minimum age though! Some of the games that young kids can play are fun for all ages!

My favorite games when I was 6-10 years old were whatever games my older brothers picked out because as the youngest you just go along with what everyone else wants. I played a LOT of Monopoly and I don't think I ever won! These best board games for 6-10 year olds and, yes, Monopoly is included because it's actually a great game kids love.
