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

Sum Swamp

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. :)

    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.

    I have a lot, especially for the computer/tablet, but the ones that I would say are most educational are:

    Board/card games:

    • Dominion
    • Settlers of Catan 
    • Through the Ages
    • Carcassonne
    • Once Upon a Time

    Computer/Tablet games:

    • Everyday Genius: Square Logic
    • SpaceChem 
    • 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)

    Scrabble (spelling), Monopoly (money), and they play a whole host of other games.  These are the ones that I can think of off the top of my head.
