If you've ever watched Ellen Degeneres, you'll know this game. One person has a word on their head and has to guess what is says based on the clues everyone else is giving them. Just download the app and you can play it anywhere - it's fun for big groups, small groups, adults or kids. Perfect for when guests are getting antsy waiting for the food to cook.
This fast-paced board game is guaranteed to make the whole family laugh (ages 8+.) In it, everyone gets a role (villager, werewolf, etc.) and you have to convince everyone else that you are not the werewolf. There's lying and deception. What's better than that? And there's even other versions of the game that you can combine into one big game.
This game of luck is perfect for younger kids (ages 4+), but still enjoyable for older kids and adults too. Each player gets two adorable pigs, which they then throw and hope that they land in certain positions. Of course some are easier than others. Pass the Pigs comes with a small carrying case so it's a great game to take to restaurants or parties to keep the kids busy.
Looking for a game to play with your teens or tweens? We have a winner! Try Speak Out, where you read a sentence from a card and your teammates have to figure out what you're saying. The hitch? You're wearing a mouthpiece that makes it nearly impossible to talk - but sounds crazy funny to everyone else!
If you haven't tried a collaborative board game before, it's worth a try. All players are on one team - everyone wins or everyone loses. In Forbidden Island, you have to work together to prevent the island from sinking. Plus, there's a variety of ways to play that make it more or less challenging.
Harry Potter: Wizards Unite
This one hasn't been released yet but it looks to be the biggest game of 2018. From the makers of Pokemon Go, Harry Potter: Wizards Unite is another augmented reality game, but this time you cast spells, fight legendary beasts and discover mysterious artifacts as you explore the world around you. They had us at J.K. Rowling!
