Games for Kids and Parents

Follow the links to pages with detailed information about each game.

Several of our games are ideal for parents to play with their children. These have enough depth to stay interesting for adults . . . but the themes and gameplay are accessible to players as young as 8. If you want to share games with your kids, check these out!

(Remember: most games have dice and other pieces that should be kept away from children who are so young that they put things in their mouths!)


Munchkin Treasure Hunt Munchkin Treasure Hunt is a fun boardgame for up to six players, ages 6 and up – now everyone in the family can be a Munchkin! (Don't worry . . . you don't need to know how to play any other Munchkin game to enjoy Treasure Hunt.) Treasure Hunt comes with a board, two custom six-sided dice, 96 colorful cards, four blank cards (so you can write your own!), six character standees, and a rulesheet.


Chibithulhu Cute. Cuddly. Sanity-blasting. Chibithulhu.

This soft and huggable plush figure features huge, adorable eyes, angel wings . . . and Cthulhu's trademark tentacles. It's made of all-new materials, and is machine washable.

Of course, this toy includes a special rule, which will help you during Munchkin Cthulhu games.

Now available in three sizes: deceptively tiny, insanely medium, and mind-crushingly huge!


Plush Tentacle It's a 30" long Plush Tentacle that's posable. Why did we do it? Because Evil Stevie likes tentacles. And this one is soft, and furry.

Make it a fashion statement, poking out of your shirt. Use the loop in back to hang it from your belt. Put it in your next haunted house . . . or in your cubicle! Threaten your other plush toys, just to remind them who's the boss.

It's completely posable. Bend it to your own wicked will.

Toon Toon is the Cartoon Roleplaying Game. Play out the zaniest adventures you can imagine . . . but even if you get blown up with dynamite or squashed under a steamroller, nobody ever dies. Parents can act as the Animator (that is, the Game Master) and run their kids through cartoon hi-jinks.


Cowpoker Cowpoker lets two to four players become ranchers, rustling each others' cattle and hiring away each others' cowpokes. Recruit the wacky characters into your Ranch for points and bonuses, and collect them in tricks from the roundups and shootouts. Once all the cards are taken, make poker hands to score additional points! Every card can be used at least two different ways, so there's strategy as well as luck.


The following games are out of print . . . that is, we are completely out, and have no current plans to reprint them. The best way to find a copy of an out-of-print game is to check eBay or contact a dealer in out-of-print games.


Battle Cattle: The Card Game

Battle Cattle: The Card Game is compatible with Car Wars: The Card Game and equally simple and fast-playing . . . since armed and armored cows are complete fantasy, parents may find this version less likely to give the kids the wrong idea about freeway etiquette.


Car Wars: The Card Game Car Wars: The Card Game is easy-to-learn and fast-playing, though the theme (battles between armed and armored cars) will not be right for every child.


Spooks Spooks is a fast-playing party game. The first player to empty his hand escapes the haunted house . . . and the spooks get everybody else! Spooks is easy to learn, so kids will enjoy it too. You don't have to outrun the monsters . . . if you can outrun your friends.

King's Blood King's Blood is a fast-paced multi-player card game of dynasty building. Build the family tree by arranging marriages, exiling rivals, and crowning new royalty. Match a character with a compatible member of the opposite sex, and start a new generation. Play the last family member from your hand, and you've won!

King's Blood was originally published by Kadokawa Shoten in Japan. Steve Jackson Games is proud to offer the authorized English translation of this fast, fun game.


X-Bugs is quick and fun . . . it's been called "tiddlywinks on crack." Yes, really. It combines luck, strategy, and skill . . . Your armies are microscopic mutated monsters, each represented by a plastic chip. Flip the chips to attack! Each bug has a special power . . . each army has a different strategy! Eat the enemy's bugs, destroy his bases, and win!


Dino Hunt Dice How many dinosaurs can you catch? Roll the Dino Hunt Dice and see!

Roll the dinosaur picture, and you caught him! If you get the leaf picture, the dino is hiding, and you can try again. If you get a footprint . . . you're STOMPED! Push your luck to catch as many as you can, but stop rolling before you're stomped three times, or you'll lose them all.

Dino Hunt Dice is a game for 3 to 8 players. Each game takes 10 to 20 minutes, and can be taught in a single round. Perfect for families and dinosaur lovers! This new dice game was inspired by the original Dino Hunt family game!
