We're hosting a Family Boardgame Night at Biggie's primary school next Friday night. We've invited families to bring their favourite games, but will take some of our own as well, to 'seed' the night.

(Primary school is ages 6-12, boys and girls. We've required that children have an adult with them - no solo kids).

We're also negotiating a fundraising deal with our FLGS to supply games at a discount (which will be split between the school and the buyer), so if we can interest a few people in buying a new game or two that will be great.

I'd welcome comments on these games and their suitability for teaching in an open gaming environment comprised of adults and children. I haven't made this list open to new additions as the games we take will have to come from our collection.

** List updated 07-May-2006 with the outcomes - what was played, what wasn't, what was popular **

See comments section and Fraser's blog entry at http://boredgamegeeks.blogspot.com/2006/05/school-game-eveni... for reflections on the night as a whole.
