Evolution of a Board Game

This week my boys have been making games. I'm not sure when or how it started but it did. And how do 4 year old's games differ from 10 yr old's game? Well I'll show you.

Lakin- age 4

His doesn't have a name. But if you look close you can see and L and an A in it. Those mean you go back to start. He has since made another row on it.

Cohen- age 6
His game is called "Ted". It has two 'go back 9 spaces' and one 'go back 1 space'. And you have to turn around and go back when you get to the dead end in order to get to finish.

Cale- age 8

This one is called "Twist". See the arrows? They mean go back a space. Cale's made a few different versions and making these games came from him. He is getting more involved when he makes them- especially after seeing Rylan's....

Rylan- age 10
His is called "Bear Hunters" and this picture is only half of it. There are all sorts of instructions on the spaces. You have to pass a troll and a mad man. You have to collect bears (bear counters) and bullets (bingo chips) and have to have 20 or so of each before you can win.
