Brad Roemer Looks at Board Games for Kids


Are you like the Brad Roemer Reasl Esate and tired of seeing your kids sitting around their room or the front room plugged into an electronic device? Are you leading by example and sitting around plugged into your electronic device? Well, it is time to change that. Introducing, family time! How, you say, is that possible? Simple, board games. If you have a child over the age of 5 it is a great time to get them away from devices that we never had as children. Get them into something that we had to do on rainy or snowy days when mom wouldn’t let us go outside. Drag out some board games and have some fun. Oh, you don’t have any? Well, that is not a problem. Get on that fancy electronic device and pop over to Amazon or any other online retailer and order up some of the games that we list below.

The Games

Contrary to popular belief, it is never too early to get children involved in games. If they are old enough to understand their iPad, they can certainly comprehend these games.

  1. Robot Turtles – Since most kids today are comfortable with electronics, this game is designed to get them ahead of the curve and introduce them to programming. It is not too complicated and does not use fancy jargon, but it is the very basics of programming designed to be fun.
  2. Hoot Owl Hoot – This is just your basic match game. But the artwork and the story that the developers have embedded into it, make it have a lot of replayability. Essentially, you are trying to get all the matches complete to aid in getting the owls back to their nest before sunrise.
  3. Elementos – Is playing rock, paper, scissors just a little too boring for you? This game uses the elements to substitute the aforementioned choices. Each game lasts approximately 15 minutes as opposed to 15 seconds with a regular game of paper, rock, scissors.
  4. Sagrada – Do you have a kid that is really good with problem-solving skills? Then this is the game for you. You roll dice in order to place coloured pieces on a stained-glass window that you are creating for the Sagrada Family. You have to think ahead, or the colours will not properly match the specifications.
  5. Pandemic – If you have kids that are around 13 years old, this is going to be a great game to get them interested in board games. Pandemic is a game where you play as the doctors trying to prevent a disease from spreading to the world. As each turn progresses, the disease gets bigger and bigger and can eventually plague the world. Your job is to stop that in cooperation with the other players.


Brad Roemer hopes this helps you to start a family game night or just play more games in general. Games are a good way for family and friends to communicate with each other and learn more about each other. Pick up some games this week and try a game night this weekend. We think you will find it more fun than sitting and staring mindlessly at the television.
