Bit late, but my daughter and I are board game geeks. She's only 6 but can beat adults at adult games!

If you like a game that's a bit harder to learn, but highly addictive once you get the rules: Settlers of Catan. It's a very competitive game though, so not for sore losers.

Another one that's a bit different to your average game is "Hunters and gatherers". Definitely one of our favourites.

We also recently bought Ticket to Ride but my daughter didn't like it much the first/only time we played. Though that might have been because it took me a while to figure out the rules. Which aren't all that complicated really, but as usual I was trying to cook dinner at the same time and got confused. It does have lots of little parts though, so may not be ideal for camping.

We play lots of UNO and Skip Bo too. And I loooove Rummykub! Which you can actually also play with cards. But the tiles are kind of cooler.

I love Pictionary too and Scattegories. And Cranium is ok too, there's a couple of different editions of that one now.

We got given a Pass the Bomb game too, but have only played it once. An easy and fun game though.

I have a couple more to add. Games that are good both with kids and adults.

Forbidden Island. We got this only recently and played it twice - once just me and my daugther, once with a couple of friends too. And really loved it! It is a cooperative game, meaning that all players play to win against the game. The rules are easy to understand and it isn't hard to play, but it is pretty challenging. When we played it with 4 we only just managed to win and the tension was palpable. We all spontaneously high fived eachother when we made the winning move. :lol: Highly recommended. It comes in a handy smallish tin. You do need a table to play.

And another one we just got is Bohnanza, which is a card game. Card games are so perfect for camping and travel. I've only played it once, but it's good fun. You do also need some space to put your cards down, but a sturdy book on your lap would do the trick.
