Just talking to a colleague about games for teens and tweens in the library
and generated this list and thought we'd share:

•Zombie Dice
•Chess set
•Forbidden Island*
• Decks of cards (don't forget about the basics)
• 7 Wonders*
• Small Worlds*
• Coup
• Love Letter
• Werewolf
• Tsuro*
• Blokus
• Carcassonne*
•Escape: Curse* of the Temple (remember this one has noise and it requires
a CD player)
• Masquerade
• Apples to Apples

If you find that tabletop games are good for your library these are all
great for teens and tweens. There's even a family version of Dixit Journeys
for kids/families, as well as a Blokus Jr.

Dixit is hands down my favorite for kids as you use pictures to tell
stories! Anyway, you may know all this already but just in case, here you
are. Go board games! Woot!
