We're here to help parents and guardians navigate the world of video games and board games. We have 2091 Video Games and 176 Board Games in our database. Each one hand picked, deeply researched and tested with real families.

Favourites - Games We Love

These games stopped us in our tracks and expanded what we thought games could be. They are like those books you finish and immediately message friends to read it as well, before starting over yourself.

Hot - Trending Games

These are the games that are the talk of the playground and making waves in bedrooms around the world. Get ahead of the curve by checking out what's coming next.

New Lists

These are games that are helpful for mental health. This includes games that have been helpful for specific mental health challenges, as well as games that help us understand the challenge faced by the people we love. Some of these are designed to be used as a source of games that offer wellbeing in different ways.


These relate to games with different educational benefits. Along with games that are designed to be educational, this includes games that can inspire learning and knowledge because of the worlds and stories they create. The collateral learning uncovered here is a glimpse into the ways games can help children learn about themselves, their community and the world.

Pathways - Real Life Gaming Stories

Game Pathways uncover the real experiences children are having with the games they play. They are created from interviews with real families, teachers and professionals who have found games lead to positive outcomes in their lives.

Bargains - Great Games With Big Discounts

We track discount prices for console games on the database. Because we don't get any money from these sales, they are a uniquely independent way to find bargains for your family -- often for just a few pounds or dollars.
