    1. Snakes and Ladders

    Life is full of ups and downs. 

    I think the first time that I realised this, I was playing a game of Snakes & Ladders. Just kidding, my thoughts could not have been so deep as a 5 year old.

    Nevertheless, this game has its own thrill. That feeling when your opponent falls from 99 to 4? That feeling of climbing up the ladder from 17 to 93. 

    Before your child climbs up the corporate ladder as a fully grown adult, let them enjoy the small victories of life.

  • What will my child learn?

    Teach your child that it is ok to fall sometimes (When his pawn goes all the way down because of a snake). Or you can quote Shahrukh Khan from Baazigar (1993)-  Kabhi kabhi jeetne ke liye kuch haarna padta hai….aur haar kar jeetne wale ko baazigar kete hai”

    For ages 8+ - Just you and your child (Games for 2 players only)

    1. Othello

    Othello Board Game

    Othello is the perfect game to groom your budding strategist. In a world where ‘strategy’ is of increasing importance, Othello teaches you to strategize at every step of the game.


    The goal of the game is to occupy the maximum area on the board or to leave your opponent in a position where they cannot make any more moves. 


    This game looks easy to play. However, even one strategic move can be a game changer.


    This game can only be played with exactly 2 members


    What will my child learn?

    That sometimes simple strategies work better than complex ones. Or you can simplify it to him / her – ‘Slow and steady wins the race.’






    1. Super Mastermind

    https://snooplay.in/products/super-mastermind

    Can your child code and de-code messages? There is no better way to find out.

    In this game, one player decides a five digit code using pins of different colours (or the same colour). The second player has to guess the code in the minimum number of attempts. 

    The player who guesses the code of his / her opponent in the minimum number of attempts wins.

    How will my child benefit from this?

    • It will sharpen the child’s memory
    • It will improve their cognitive skills


    1. Monopoly

    monopoly Board gameMonopoly deal Monopoly dealG.O.T Monopoly Board game

    Monopoly, originally known as the ‘The Landlord's Game was patented in 1903 and is a classic board game that is more than a century old. Over the years, few things have passed the test of time and Monopoly is definitely one of them. 

    Monopoly takes us back to memories of paying fines,  buying properties, constructing hotels, hosting guests and much more.


    All the players start Monopoly with the same amount of money. A lot of luck combined with a tad bit of strategy eventually enables one player to dominate all others. This player ends up accumulating a large amount of real estate which eventually results in a lot of money. 


    Fun Fact – The longest game ever played of Monopoly ever played lasted - 1680 hours (70 days) !!!
