Canít play any board games/iOS games.ideas?

I struggle with board games..iOS games and rules of them. Does anyone know a simple game I can play?

Im talking:
hungry hungry hippos
connect 4 (hate)
Jenga (its ok)
guess who (hate),
beetle
bedbugs
battleship
Ludo
Gone fishingí
Trivial pursuit
Snakes and ladders

Used To play mousetrap just for the trap part lol! There was a game I played as a kid which had wheels you turned and something went down? Anyone know what this was?

Tried operation itís too much and also tried balder dash which made NO sense to me. I think ticket to ride looks hard... I hate card games and would love a marble based game.. bad at geography. Hate murder based games or farming!

I hate rpg based games and sick of bubble shooter and match 3.. everyone uses Thie idea!

Very bad at concentration and learning rules

Re: Canít play any board games/iOS games.ideas?

Hi, and welcome to ADDF!

A lot of people with ADHD struggle with working memory, sequencing, and multi-step instructions. That can often make learning and remembering how to play games difficult.

If you have difficulty with motor skills / hand-eye coordination (also fairly common with ADHD) that could also make games like Jenga or Operation more challenging.

Is there a specific reason you want to play board / table games if you don't find them enjoyable and they're a struggle for you?

...Like, family or friends want to play with you?
...Or do you just feel like you "should" be able to play them?

No I do enjoy games I love simple ones like ludo or trivial pursuit is fun for me.

Solitaire? (there's a marble version, it's easy to learn to play but it's not a easy game to win)

Ah, OK, thanks -- I completely misunderstood your list the first time I read your post. (I thought those were games you had trouble with or didn't like.) Whoops!

I used to love Trivial Pursuit, too, though it's been a while since I've played.

Some other ideas:
- Encore (draw a card and come up with songs that contain the word shown)
- Pictionary (sketch whatever's on the card and your teammates guess what it is)
- Checkers, aka draughts
- Life

Pictionary? Not the complicated one with the board but just cards with words and then you draw what the word is and then other people guess what you draw.

Back in high school I played a lot of Wa Hoo with my friend. It's a marbles
game on a board.

I love Balderdash.
