Candyland: a game of skill:

Candyland is a board game that remarkably young children can play. When you get bored, make it a more skilful game. There are lots of ways to do this that may appeal to your youngster. Here are some examples:
· When it is your turn, draw two cards. You may only use one of them, then discard both.
· When it is your turn, draw two cards. Use both of them in whichever order you prefer.
· When it is your turn, draw two cards. Your opponent decides which of the two cards you must use.
· Start with an extra card in your hand. When it is your turn, draw one card. Play one of the two you have now, and keep the other for possible use in future turns. Etc.
You can also make Chutes & Ladders skilful.
