Tweens are just reaching the age when more complex and strategic board games can capture their fancy. One of the best is The Settlers of Catan, in which players share resources to try to build successful societies. Unlike more traditional board games, the open-ended nature of Catan ensures that no two games will be remotely alike. It makes a great family activity, too!
