Minecraft is a video game that has taken the world by storm! If you haven’t heard of it yet, you will! In Minecraft players can work independently or together to create worlds and characters and have them survive in all sorts of strange scenarios. Homeschoolers love Minecraft because kids learn so much when they play it. I could go on and on about how wonderful Minecraft is, but don’t worry, I’ll save that for another post. Minecraft is all about world creation and that lends itself well to board games. If Minecraft is a hit in your house, you’ll love these board games for kids who like Minecraft!

*The age break-down is based on community ratings at Board Game Geek and are rather arbitrary. Only you can decide if a game is appropriate for your family. Please note that Kingdom Death: Monster is recommended for ages 17+. Some of these games are out-of-print, be sure to check out the thrift store the next time you go!
