Do Board Games Help us Learn?

By Isla from The Press Gang

Board games. Those things that you always seem to lose because you have no memory or luck. Scrabble, Bananagrams, Ticket to Ride, Chinese Checkers, all of these qualify as board games, but what do they have in common other than the fact that they are on a board? The answer; they help us learn.

You might be wondering how on earth that is possible, but if you think about it, Scrabble & Bananagrams teach you english, spelling and memory, Chinese checkers teaches you to stategise & think before you  move, and Ticket to Ride teaches you basic geography. These skills are fairly useful in life.

For anyone who loves board games, or wants to get some, here is a list of common ones, hopefully you know or have some!

  • Scrabble
  • Bananagrams
  • Ticket to Ride ( Europe or other )
  • Exploding Kittens
  • Imploding Kittens ( an addition to the exploding version )
  • Chinese Checkers
  • Codenames
  • Codenames Pictures
  • Chess
  • Monopoly

So there’s your list! Please enjoy playing these games!
