Throughout the year parents will hear those familiar words uttered by their darling children… I’m bored! There are going so many times you can tell them that they have 101 things to keep them occupied or that when you were a child you only bothered your parents when you were hungry. To help you get through their ‘I’m bored’ phase I have a collection of board games for bored kids to show you.

From the incredibly popular Horrible Histories series, a game to test your knowledge of our gruesome past.

For 2 to 4 players, watch out for cheeky Rattus and his Horrible Chance cards, from being press-ganged into the navy to being accused of witchcraft! With over 600 questions, packed with foul facts and hilariously misleading possible answers, fabulous fun!

Topix – The Fast-Thinking Naming Game

Topix – the game of rapid recall. Pick a topic tile and take a turn… It’s a race against the clock to list as many things as you can that are related to your topic. But there’s a cunning catch – only answers that begin with the given letter will count! From ‘FILM TITLES’ beginning with ‘T’… To ‘THINGS FOUND IN THE SEA’ beginning with ‘B’… The possibilities are endless!

Everyone plays at once so there’s no hanging around. A great family board game, TOPIX tests your powers of recall and invention as you race to add unique answers to the lists created by other players. Played individually or in teams, this quick-thinking game is instant fun for all.
