"A basic introduction to Monopoly. Some of the rules are a little hard to understand. But the money is plentiful and good counting practice. I reviewed it here: http://lifewithpreschooler.blogspot.com/2010/01/family-game-night-preschool-style.html"
"An introduction to Clue, but with missing prizes instead of a murder. My daughter still cannot play independently and needs an adult partner. We also find that we need to dumb down our play to make it fair for her. http://lifewithpreschooler.blogspot.com/2010/01/family-game-night-preschool-style.html"
"A classic! My daughter does find this a bit confusing - sometimes moving right to left and then moving left to right. She also has trouble telling when she is at the bottom or top of a ladder as opposed to just crossing over them."
"Available in many different character versions as well. For younger children, I recommend the original. The character version has too many pictures with variations. We have the Disney Princess version and it has 3 or 4 different pictures of each Princess. When my daughter was younger, this confused her if we used multiple poses of the same princess."
"This is a grandparent game in my family. Growing up, my grandparents had kept the game that my mom and her brothers grew up with (late 1950s, early 1960s). Now, my parents have bought the game for their grandkids. The old version I grew up with was better in my opinion. The sticks were wooden. The new sticks are plastic and flex as you try to insert them. However, the game is still fun."
