Board games not only provide a great program for the whole family, but also have a serious, scientifically proven impact on children’s development.

These games help children gain knowledge and experience, while also improving perseverance and concentration. They provide an opportunity for children to discover new things in a safe environment, e.g. experiencing failure for the first time.

Concentration and perseverance

While playing a board game, children learn to focus on one thing at a time and to finish what they started. They also get introduced to the concept of work and commitment. After losing a game they take the dice and try again, they learn not to give up.

Logical thinking

Board games also help children learn to plan and think ahead. The development of logical thinking is becoming more and more important in schools, but they can’t acquire this skill early enough. Logic and strategy board games offer a great opportunity to do so. In these types of games, you need to plan your next steps and create a strategy. Our recommendation in this regard is Labyrinth.

Creativity and cognitive abilities

While board games improve abilities connected to concentration and problem-solving, let’s not skip games that help children to get creative—imagination and creativity are just as important and they gain more and more attention from board game creators. Besides their social and creative aspects, they offer a quality time together with the family that might improve cognitive abilities and skills. Cooperative games are relatively new, the emphasis is on collaboration instead of competitiveness in these games. Try memory games or games like Bandido or Mmm!.

Playful learning

Let’s not forget that board games are all about having fun, it’s their primary purpose in the end. Kids are able to make a game out of anything, even a past experience. It’s important to make the most of this ability of theirs, since it is not only a great opportunity for kids, but adults too.

Why Team Retreats Can Make A Difference
One of the interesting trends that has been growing over the last couple of years has been an increase in the use of corporate team retreats. The idea is to get all the workers out of the office for a couple of days so that everyone can see and get to know each other in a less stressful environment.
