Favorite Board Games for Preschoolers?

What are some of your favorite board games for preschool-aged children? Candy Land , Chutes and Ladders, Don't Break the Ice, and Memory are played pretty often around here. My 4 yr old also loves to play Twister and Connect 4. Any other favorites out there?

Thanks!

My son got the game "The Wonder Forge Dr Seuss Super Stretchy ABCs" for his 3rd birthday. He is a little young for all the rules but still loves it!!

We play the ones that you already listed but my 4 yr old son's favorite is Trouble. He doesn't need any help playing and it's fun for his dad and I to play as well.

Honestly, my daughter at that age LOVED to play Monopoly and Life. Sure, I had to deal with all the money, but it was great for teaching her counting on to add small numbers with dice, and she liked the idea of buying property and Life, of course, you get to stick little peg people in little cars!

We also like the fishing games that you have to catch the fish as they circle around the thing. Also, there's a game...maybe it's called Guess Who? Where you each have a board with lots of little pictures of people, and you each pick a card to decide which one is "yours" and then you try to guess who the other is by process of elimination (i.e. does your person have glasses? Blonde hair? etc) and that one is great for critical thinking.

Max the Cat. It's a cooperative game. SO much fun. You can find it on line. You will LOVE it.

We like the ones you mentioned. My son (almost 4 years old) also plays Sequence for Kids and has a great time with it. Below are links to a few fun games I have available through Discovery Toys, all of which are designed for preschoolers, and that my son really likes playing:

My niece and nephew love this one where they build a bug...I think it's called cootie or something. They also like this memory game called critter in the candy that my sister found at a yard sale, I'm not sure if they still make that one but I bet they have similar memory games.

Clue Jr., Monopoly Jr., and Guess Who are lots of fun. You can even try Uno at this age, but he'll probably still need some help.

It's not a board game, but Hullaballoo is a really fun movement game for preschoolers. My 3-year-old will sometimes pull it out to play on his own, and my 6- and 7-year-olds like to join him, too.
