No. 10: Apples to Apples

Top 10 Board   Party GamesTop 10 Board Party Games

This game of comparisons is anything but boring. Each round, a judge announces a category (eg. Funny or Sappy). The remaining players search through their cards and choose the one they think fits best. But, it’s up to the judge to decide whose card makes the cut. Available in a junior version.

No. 9: The LOGO Board Game

The LOGO Board Game is all about logos and the things wrapped up in them. It taps into the knowledge we've piled up over our lives and adds a few astonishing facts and surprises to entertain the whole family.

No. 8: Cranium

Cranium lets you tap into your inner actor, artist, data hound or wordsmith! Win the game by completing cards in four different categories: Sketch & Sculpt, Sleuth & Solve, Word Play and Act & Hum.

No. 7: Quelf

This game is similar to Cranium but a little bit wackier. Players make their way around the board, performing actions based on cards you pick up along the way. Quelf will have you doing all sorts of crazy actions, like repeating everything you say to narrating another player’s moves. Available in a junior version.

No. 6: Blokus

Blokus is the ultimate puzzle game, and is can be fun with just two players! The original board contains 400 squares and 84 pieces that get split up between players. The goal is to get all of your pieces on the board, and prevent your opponent from doing the same. There are multiple variations like Blokus Duo and Blokus Trigon.

No. 5: Scattergories

Stretch your imagination in Scattergories. Roll the die, choose a letter and tackle 12 categories, coming up with an item for each one. Do all this in three minutes without matching anyone else’s answer, and you will score some points!

No. 4: Hedbanz

Hedbanz is the quick question game of “what am I?” Each player receives one card, which remains hidden to them but visible to the other players. You must ask questions to figure out what – or who – you are!

No. 3: Scene It?

Scene It is a trivia game that uses questions and clips from your favorite movies, TV shows and pop culture moments. There are tons of fun Scene It spin-offs like Scene It Harry Potter, Scene It Glee and Scene It The Twilight Saga.

No. 2: Settlers of Catan

Top 10 Board   Party GamesTop 10 Board Party Games

Settlers of Catan is a twist on Risk, the world domination board game. In Catan, players must occupy an island, building settlements, collecting resources and trading with other players. Strategy is key!

No. 1: iMAgiNiff

Top 10 Board   Party GamesTop 10 Board Party Games

iMAgiNiff lets you get to know your family and friends on a whole new level. Choose a set of names (those playing the game, plus people you all know) and write them on the board. Each round, one name is selected to be the subject of a card, and everyone must give their answer based on their knowledge of that person. The cards ask a hilarious range of questions, such as “if ____ were a fruit, what would they be?” and “if ____ were a piece of clothing, what would they be?”
