Board games are hip again - and we don’t mean just for kids. The board game market these days has made a big comeback. Toy shops and websites are littered with wild, wacky and sometimes brilliant table-top games that can keep a group of adults entertained for hours.
These days there’s even an “International TableTop Day” which celebrates the fun of tabletop gaming and has the support of some game-enthusiast celebs including Wil Wheaton (from Big Bang Theory) and Felicia Day (from Supernatural, Buffy the Vampire Slayer and more). The organizers pick a day and hold 3,000+ gaming events around the world including throughout North American and in every other continent (even Antarctica). Wheaton also has an online TV show, TableTop that’s all about getting you to play. The show involves him and three friends playing a board, card or dice game together and may seem boring but it’s had millions of views.
Playing board games is a popular activity for adults around the world – so which board games are the most popular? Check out our list of 10 games that are designed with adult players in mind and then round up your friends for some good old-fashioned fun.
10 Cranium – “The Game For Your Whole Brain”
9 Taboo – “The Game of Unspeakable Fun”
8 Battle of the Sexes – “You’ll Never Understand Them”
7 Rockstar Rehab – “Where the Players Become the Most Famous”
6 Mansions of Madness – “Til Death Do Us Part”
5 Boxers or Briefs – “Can You Predict What Your Friends Will Pick?”
4 Imaginiff – “The Funniest Game You Can Imagine”
3 Monopoly – “The Fast-Dealing Property Trading Game”
2 Snorta – “The Wild Game of Moos, Meows & More”
This game has been around for about 10 years but there’s a high chance you (and your friends) haven’t heard of it. Board games tend to take a while to shoot to fame and this is one of them. As it’s aimed for ages seven and above, you could be forgiven for thinking this is a kids-only game but it is guaranteed fun for adults who don’t take themselves too seriously (or perhaps adults who are looking for a drinking game). Players draw a barn animal out of the bag and then you have to pick a sound you’re going to use for that animal. It could be any sound – or the actual sound of the animal. You’ve got to take note because you’ll then get pitted against other players to see who can remember certain sounds the quickest.
1 Cards Against Humanity – “A Party Game For Horrible People”
This one has taken the board game industry by storm and judging by its level of inappropriateness, it’s definitely targeting adults. For each round of the game, one player asks a question from a black card and lays it down on the table, and the other players then need to give their funniest answer from their white cards. The person asking the question then chooses the answer they liked the best. What makes this game so enjoyable is that the cards are fun and always keep you guessing with everything from “Grandpa’s ashes” to “Drinking Alone”. The company has a nice side because they donated over $100,000 to public schools in the 2013/14 holiday season.
