What are your favorite educational board games or apps; games that your children love while learning something at the same time.
Here are some of our favorites:
Scrambled States of America
Pizza Fraction Fun (played only a couple of times but can see using this a lot in the future)
Exact Change (Have to help him with this one but he's catching on)
Looking forward to your answers. :)

These games look super fun! We've been looking to add to our board game collection.

We just opened up Colorku and I haven't had a chance to play around with Rock Me Archimedes and Back2Back.
I'm going to have to keep my eyes on this post!
We have a ridiculous amount of board games. But they are mostly just regular old board games. I actually assign Scrabble every now and then. We have a game called Funglish that is a lot of fun but still kind of hard for my kids. We also got Forbidden Island which is a fun strategy and teamwork kind of game.
I'm going to keep watching this post for more ideas. My kids LOVE board games, I would love to have more educational ones.
Settlers of catan
Read around the house treasure hunt game
Scattegories was helpful with learning beginning sounds and alliteration
Risk can be set up like many of the wars we've studied
Quirkel was helpful with learning attributes
Heroquest and d&d lol
The amazing labyrinth
Game of the states

I have a lot, especially for the computer/tablet, but the ones that I would say are most educational are:
- Settlers of Catan
- Through the Ages
- Once Upon a Time
- Everyday Genius: Square Logic
- Portal 1 & 2
- Civilization V
- Minecraft (I've made them build structures from History in it, or my son recently was covering rocks/minerals with his friend so I let both get on the game and do a hunt to see how many rocks/minerals they could each find and list them on their paper)
