What is it about the holidays that compels us to play board games? I don’t know, but I love it!

One of the best things about Christmas time is when a bunch of family members share a board game and try to out-do each other in a semi-aggressive style. As kids, I used to play Monopoly and Cluedo with my folks – sometimes scrabble. Nowadays, board games are even more inventive, and sometimes risqué (like WTF Did You Say A Party Game Against All Dignity and Morality or Adult Loaded Questions.)

So for your convenience, I’ve compiled a list of the very latest, family-friendly and downright awesome board games on the market. Even the most stalwart technophiles get in on the fun. It’s something that everybody in the family can do together – people of all ages and ability. Order quick to get your delivery in time for the big day!

Poop: The Game $14.99

A game that crosses Uno with taking a s**t. Kids love this – and chortle away at the poop references.

Exploding Kittens: A Card Game About Kittens and Explosions and Sometimes Goats $19.99

Another fun game that kids love but shouldn’t. It’s about kittens, explosion, lasers, goats and more exploding kittens.

Watch Ya’ Mouth Family Edition – The Authentic, Hilarious, Mouthguard Party Game $19.99

This is one of the most hilarious games you will play this year. It’s so simple, but fun. Each player wears a mouthguard which makes speech somewhat of a challenge – phrases have to be understood by other players to win..

Anti-Monopoly $24.00

A great twist on the staid format of monopoly. This time, you have to choose to play as a monopolist or free-market competitor – each with separate rules.

HedBanz Game $15.19

If you haven’t played HedBanz yet then you have to this Holiday season. It is stomach-achingly funny when kids get involved. Again, a simple concept, elegantly executed. Grab this one!

Pie Face $14.88

This one is probably the funniest of all. My kids love this. Get your granny’s face lined up for the pie and watch it fly. It’s hard not to fall about laughing when your mother’s mascara runs down her foam-laden face.
