Society has dictated that boys need competition to be happy and healthy as children. Not true! Most boys yearn to play games that have no winners or losers. They strive to learn how to work together as a team without the stress of competition to overshadow the positive life lessons that are learned along the way through game playing with their family and peers. Cooperative board games are the way to go! They teach boys of all ages to work together for a common good, which is one of the most important skills for boys to have in the 21st Century. This type of game will most definitely instill a strong sense of character in boys of all ages. The following are some of the cooperative games that my boys enjoy playing:
