Frequents in this house are monopoly, game of life, scrabble, scattegories, Cluedo and uno

very similar here. The junior version of cluedo was disappointing though. Not being able to progress through the game unless you rolled the right number for an extended period.

There’s a channel on YouTube called the Dice Tower and they do fairly detailed reviews of most games. Or you can go to a board game cafe to play test a few.
I’ve purchased online from Gameology (VIC), Gamesmen (NSW) and Board Game Master (SA) with no issues.

Oh I forgot Love Letters.

It’s surprisingly very fun and requires a good memory and some strategy yet so simple to learn.

Game of Life is a firm favourite.
When they were little “Pop to the Shops”.
Beat the Parents
Kerplunk (but it is annoying to set up!)
