Free Printable Board Games

Dear Reader,

Thank you for dropping by my humble site. Today we look at board games. Quick -- aside from Scrabble, Monopoly, Chess and Checkers, how many board games do you know? It is an oft-made statement that board games can stimulate the mind, averting the onset of Alzheimer's disease and introducing strategic thinking to younger children. It is also interesting to play a new board game. Board Game Ratings, an online store for board games, stocks and sells the latest and highest rated board games. Strangely, though, I've not seen in Malaysia any of the games that Board Game Ratings is offering.

Thankfully, then, Google Directories is hosting a list of "Print and Play" board games. Many of the game boards are available for download, and subsequently printing and playing. This is a wonderful idea as board games will be made available to people all over the world, including those from poorer countries, who cannot afford to purchase the original set of the game. Aside from printable board games, players will also require playing pieces, which they can choose from suitable objects, such as buttons, coins, and little miniature figurines.

These are a few links to "print and play" board games:
