Kid’s Games at the Malted Meeple

We have a game library of 400+ games for guests to explore, and we mean it when we say there is something for everyone! While the Meeple is host to many events geared toward adults such as mead tastings and D&D nights, we also cater to families with kids of all ages! We have hosted crafting events, Kid’s D&D, and look forward to incorporating even more family-friendly events in the coming year. In the meantime, nothing makes for a better Saturday afternoon than playing a game and enjoying a milkshake with the family. Check out some kid-friendly games below!

Chicken Cha Cha Cha – Ages 4+, 2-4 players

A creative memory game that ties memory to pawn movement. The first player to successfully memorize the images on each of the 12 octagon tiles, both from their own turns and from watching other players flip the octagons on their turns, will be able to move their chicken around the yard without stopping, and in doing so will win the game. The placement of the octagons is random, so the challenge is fresh each game. Each game takes about 15-20 minutes. Good luck and cha cha on!

Monster Match – Ages 6+, 2-6 players

Monster Match is the fast-paced game of catching donut-eating monsters. Players roll the special “Monster Dice” and race to find a monster that matches the dice rolled. A lot of speed games like this tend to see a dominant player, but with Monster Match, it is possible for all players to score each round as there could be multiple matches each time. This adds a layer of strategy to the game as players can evaluate which Monster may be the most points! Happy hunting!

Toss Your Cookies – Ages 8+, 3-8 players

Between the yummy assortment of cookies and the crazy assortment of actions, this game will surely satisfy your appetite for fun. Try to gather five of the same cookies by following the dice actions you roll. Be the first to get five of a kind plus the milk and you’re one fortunate cookie. Best of all, these cookies contain zero calories and don’t leave any crumbs so you can enjoy them almost anywhere without feeling a pang of guilt.

Spot It! Party – Ages 10+, 2-8 players

Spot it! is a simple pattern recognition game in which players try to find an image shown on two cards. Each card in Spot it! features eight different symbols, with the symbols varying in size from one card to the next; any two cards have exactly one symbol in common. For the basic Spot it! game, reveal one card, then another. Whoever spots the symbol in common on both cards claims the first card, then another card is revealed for players to search, and so on. Whoever has collected the most cards when the 55-card deck runs out wins.
