Catan is a board game which simulates the development of a civilization. It’s about trade, negotiation, and conflict. It’s also about luck, strategy, and skill. This game can be played with 2 to 4 players in 45–60 minutes (depending on the number of players).


The outrageously fun party game Telestrations will keep your family and friends entertained and laughing! Draw what you see then guess what you saw for hilarious and unpredictable outcomes.

Casual, family, party and strategy gamers alike all agree that Telestrations is one of the top 10 board games to add to their game collection, and game night. It’s an engaging game that can be played over and over with many different ages and types of groups and gatherings – it’s the perfect group game for game night!

How To Play Telestrations: ​​Telestrations is like a game of “telephone” – the game where someone would whisper something into a person’s ear, who would in turn whisper into the next person’s ear, and so on through the group. The last person would say what they heard out loud and see how it compares to the original thing said.

But instead of whispering words, Telestrations alternates between writing a word (or two) and drawing that word. All players start with a spiral bound booklet and draw a card with 12 words on it (6 on “This Side” and 6 on “That Side”). Players choose which side to use and roll a die to see which word to use. Then each player writes the word in the front of the booklet and the drawing begins.

Play alternates between drawing and guessing the drawing. After each sketch or guess, players flip one page in the booklet and pass it on to the next player. Then everyone, taking the booklet in front of them, flips back one page to see the previous player’s sketch or guess. If it’s a sketch, that player then guesses what it is. If it’s a guess, that player then draws it out.

It keeps going like this until everyone gets his or her original booklet back. Then one person will go first to flip through and show everyone what evolved.


Monopoly is a unique board game that can be played by families, friends and kids. It’s one of the most popular board games in the world, and with good reason: it has all the elements for a great evening. It’s easy to learn but hard to master—you’ll want to keep playing over and over again because you’re always learning something new!

If you play Monopoly with your family or friends often enough, everyone will become familiar with its rules: how many properties each player owns at any given time; when they have to pay taxes on their properties; what happens if someone lands on another player’s property with no houses; etc. Once everyone knows how everything works together (and how their opponents are likely going to react), then real strategy begins! 

There may not be much luck involved here but there certainly is skill. And because some players choose different strategies than others—such as building hotels right away instead of focusing on collecting lots of cash first—it becomes more interesting each time we play together!


Cluedo is a board game that you can play with up to 6 players, and it’s a lot of fun. This game is designed for all ages and plays in about 1 hour.

You’ll need one game piece per player, plus an additional 6 cards (or tokens) representing each suspect in the murder case—which you will draw from a bag when playing the game.

The object of Cluedo is to find out who committed the murder, what weapon was used, and where the crime took place by completing your investigation before anyone else does!


You’ve probably played a few games of Codenames before, but you might not have realized that it is actually one of the greatest board games out there. Here is our guide on how to get the most out of this game:

  • How to play – For those who don’t know how to play yet, here’s a quick rundown: each player is given a secret code and your goal is to find all of your teammates’ codes by giving them hints based on cards that are laid down in front of you. It sounds simple enough, but only one team will win!
  • How many people can play? – This game has been played by up to 10 people at once! However if you’re just looking for a fun two person match then feel free to just stick with two players. You can also play three or four players as well if you want more action going on during gameplay (but make sure everyone knows their roles first).
  • What do I need? – All you’ll need for this game are some paper plates (for marking HQ locations), an assortment of colored pencils/pens (to write down clues), index cards or other forms of paper that players can use as double-sided tokens with different symbols printed on them (see above screenshot). If possible try using small dice too since these give even more possibilities when searching through lists like these.

The perfect board games to keep forever.

It’s time to introduce you to the best board games that are worth your money and time. If you have a board game night, then there is no better way to spend it than playing these games. They are simply amazing!

  • Catan: The Classic Game of Strategic Settling

This game has been around for quite some time now. It was originally released in 1995 and since then, more than 20 million copies have been sold across the world. The game involves acquiring resources and developing them into settlements, cities, and roads that connect all regions on a fictional island called Catan (how clever!). 

You will also need to collect victory points which are calculated by how many territories you own and how developed they are as well as how many resources were collected during the game play. This game can accommodate 3-4 players with each taking turns until one wins by amassing 10 points or owning every territory at once.
