My 11yr old w ADHD likes to play any board game that he can add to by creating his own storyline and adding rules and characters to. For example we’ll play monopoly jr but he adds his plastic dragons and knights or any other random selection of characters to the board and makes the game his own. “When you land on the red dragon he breathes fire on you and you have to go back thru the portal of mayhem 5 spaces”. Games that have active parts/sounds go over well too as do games tailored to his favorite characters. Rolling dice in Oogie Boogie Yahtzee, spongebob operation, scooby doo “trouble” pop game, gooey Louie where you have to, ahem, pick the boogers from his nose and try not to make his brain pop out 😆.
