Making Games Fun For Everyone

How to make game-time fun for everyone!

Top “problems” when playing games…

Too young…

it’s ok to adapt the game to include everyone. Depending on the game and it’s rules here are some ways to adapt games to help the youngest players have fun…

Have the youngest players show their hands.

Give the youngest players less quantity

Allow them to have two turns.

Some specific examples, when you play golf, let the youngest player flip over three cards to start when playing labyrinth reduce their number of tiles to capture when playing 

Have to win or feelings hurt or angry and never want to play again…

prep all players before playing. Talk about how losing feels and how winning feels and remember that we are playing to have fun. Also, you can try group play games where everyone works together to win. Some games are made this way and others you can adapt to be this way, for example, in Labyrinth you can work together to capture all the cards in a certain order. 

Not knowing the rules…

Watch a video together on how to play the game. Many manufactures have videos of how to play the game but you can easily search on youtube or boardgame blogs for videos.
