Best Board Games for 9 year old Girls

9 year old girls are usually at a stage where they can start to really handle the more adult games. They are better at forming complex strategies and trying to out think their opponents. The games lists below really tap into these fundamental skills as well as being a lot of fun. It’s hard for me to pick a favorite in this list as I love to play them all with my partner and her niece.

anomia review

Number of Players: 3-6

Time: 15 minutes

Pricing: Low

Anomia is a fast paced word association game that is great for family gatherings. The box advises it’s for kids aged 10 and up but any 9 year old who is good at thinking fast on their feet will do well in this game. Speed is really the name of the game here when two players have matching symbols on their cards they have a duel to try and name something from the subject of each other’s card. Great game for older kids to play with friends and families.

takenoko review

Number of Players: 2-4

Time: 45 minutes

Pricing: High

Takenoko is a fun Japanese inspired game where players are trying to be the first to complete 7 objective cards. Takenoko is a great game for 9 year old girls as the game play is intuitive and great for building upon strategy skills and resource management, all with a really fun art style. Despite its admittedly more ‘feminine’ appearance Takenoko is actually a personal favorite of mine as the art style reminds me of stylized anime from the 2000s. I highly recommend this game for girls and adult men alike.
