Happy Little Dinosaurs
In Happy Little Dinosaurs, you are a dinosaur, and life repeatedly tries to punch you in the face. You’ll do your best to avoid disasters while dodging meteors, and much like in the real world, you’ll probably fail. But keep picking yourself back up because the first Dinosaur to reach 50 points (or the last Dinosaur standing) wins the game! Yay!
The game is simple enough to teach to an 8-year-old (and full of lessons that they might as well learn young). That said, it has unexpected room for strategy in what seems like an easy game on the surface. Most games take 30-45 minutes to play, which will give you plenty of time to play again ;)
