Board games are a blast. They’re cheap to buy, fun to give, and amazing to play. We’ve chosen thirteen of our favorites that you can add to the stack of games you might already have. While everyone loves Monopoly, Sorry, and Stratego sometimes we want to become witches, warlocks, and mysterious mages. These games help you do just that. Some pit you against each other; others have you working together to save the world. Order in, crack a few beers (or seltzers) and have a blast!
