Today, I have rounded up 13 Free Printable History Board Games. I think there is a great lack of fun history board games. And learning history can be more engaging at times when the kids can play games with each other instead of always touching an app.
Don’t we have enough games where our kids play alone? I really try to keep the sibling rivalry camaraderie going too.
Free Printable History Board Games
Not only do history board games fight the doldrums, but they make learning about history come alive. I know you’ll love one or two of these.

2. The Presidents Game. Find the .pdf towards the bottom of the post.

10. Then I created a free printable Ancient Egyptian snake game for us when studying about Ancient Egypt.
11. And I also created one when studying about the French Revolution called Storming the Bastille that you can download too.
12. This game has to be coolest free thing I have found lately. It is a vintage George Washington snake game which has the instructions written right on it.
The game has American History pictures on it. When you go over to see it at the link and choose one of the sizes to download, be sure to zoom in on it to read the rules. Though I have not printed it yet, I am thinking each part needs to be printed pretty big to read the rules.
