Free Printable Board Games

We’ve made a demo game using the Board Game Creator Kit! It’s fun and it’s free for you to download and play, in colour or black and white! 

Monkey Banana is a game for 2-4 players. Move around the tree, collect bananas, and return them to your basket. But you can’t hold more than 6 at a time, or you’ll drop them.

Can you be Monkey Banana champion?


We were so inspired by the NZ Bear Hunt during lockdown, we turned it into a board game!

Print, colour and play, and you can go bear hunting anytime.

You could even add things that you’ve discovered from your neighbourhood when you’ve been out bear hunting!

All you’ll need to play is a dice (or dice app), and a token for each player.
