Back-to-School Board Game Round-up


Since the summer is dwindling down and it's time to send the kiddos back to school, why not get them excited about learning with a bunch of new, fun, family friendly board games?

We hit up the brand new YOTEL in midtown NYC to catch up with the latest and greatest from Discovery Bay Games. We like to think of ourselves as board-game aficionados so when it comes to entertainment, we're slightly skeptical about messing with a good thing (Life, Checkers, Scrabble, etc...). However, DBG definitely did not disappoint. Here's a few of the newest games your whole family will love to play.


We love love love the Gallop books and we love the board game just as much. Perfect for the tiniest tyke or your oldest (8 at most), this guessing game based on the popular book will get your kids in a (friendly) race to the finish. Which animal will win? You'??ll be strutting, galloping, and fluttering along as you move around the track.((Gallop the Game $24.96 on Amazon)
