We love playing board games, especially when it gets super cold during the Minnesota winter. Gather your friends, make some popcorn, and get to playing!
Here are some of our favorite boards games for two, a group, or larger crowd:
This game is reminiscent of dominos with tiles that need to be matched up. Something we love about this one is that you can play with only 2 players or you can have up to 4 teams of people. You build your “kingdom” out of tiles that have crowns for points. What’s great about this game is that there is a set ending point and it goes quickly but is still super fun.
For a calmer, yet strategic game, this is one of our faves. You build your train route throughout the United States by getting cards and building on routes, while trying not to get blocked by anyone else.
It takes strategy, but it’s really easy to catch on to for new players!
We love this game because you can play with lots of people since it’s divided into two teams. The goal is to give a one word clue to describe multiple words and hope that your team can guess the right answers.
Codenames is our mom’s favorite, so we especially love playing with her!
This one is new, but we love it! It really helps to know the people you’re playing with because the answers can be more personal. Think Apples to Apples, but with more personal questions and answers.
Say Anything can really get the laughs going!
We started playing Catan years ago, but it’s still one of our go-to games as a family. There’s tons of different versions and add-ons for Catan, but we love the original game.
This one requires a little bit more strategy and takes between 1/2 hour to an hour.
