Quick To Learn Board Games

Author: Andy Robertson


This page groups the best board games for family by how quick they are to learn. If you want to get started with an easy game this is the information you need.

You can also search for board games on the database on the basis of their content and skill level:
  • Skill Rating: Specifies the age a player should be to enjoy the game. This identifies what skill level a player needs to be able to play the game proficiently.
  • Time To Learn: Specifies how complex the game is and roughly how long it takes to learn to play.
  • Time To Play: Specifies how long it takes to play the game.
  • Content Rating: Content ratings specify the age you should be for the theme and any graphic detail in a game. This identifies what violence, bad language, sex, drugs or horror are depicted in the game.

This page highlights board games based on how complex they are rather than content. What follows are the suggested games on the basis of skill level for each age of child:
