Board games have been a source of distraction, entertainment, and even a challenge to our intelligence on many occasions.

Nowadays, there are board games manufactured by companies, so with a couple of clicks we can have them at our fingertips.

What year was America discovered? who was the top scorer in the 2014 World Cup? what is the capital of Albania?
Would you like to challenge your general knowledge and that of your friends?
Let’s play trivia!
The first thing you have to do is place each checker in the center of the board and roll the dice. The player who rolls the highest number will be the first to start the fun. Inside the board, there is a circle with several different colored squares. Each color corresponds to a theme. That is, if you fall into a blue box, your question will be related to geography, if you fall into a pink box, you will be asked about entertainment, etc.
If you answer correctly, you will be able to advance faster. And if you fall into a special box and don’t miss, you will get a scoring token of the color, then you can insert it inside your chip.
Once you have filled in all your pieces with the “scoring tokens”, you must be ready for the final question and if your answer is correct, boom! You will become the brains of the group and take the victory.

The premise of this game is very simple, you have to roll the beautiful dice that the game has designed, and from what comes out, create a story with them that has logic.
The truth is that it is a very entertaining and simple game, ideal for taking on a trip and playing on the beach, as you can really play a game with the six dice it has.
Very recommended to play with family and children, as it will help them develop their creativity.
Also, it has a price that makes it possibly the cheapest game on this list.
There are many different dices, and therefore, different versions of the game, such as fantasy, actions, or heroes. Another advantage is that as it is a drawing, it is a multi-language game.
Warning: This game was designed by great minds and for great minds. About 2,500 years ago, when people rode horses and lived in mud houses with thatched roofs, an Emperor of China known as ‘Patriarch Yao’ invented a board game called ‘Go’ that would challenge even the most cultivated minds of the day.
It had such an impact that even the great thinker Confucius Strong told his followers about this game as a strategic board.
The first thing you need to understand is that the Go board is 19×19 squares. It is designed for only 2 opponents who can choose between black or white pieces.
The goal is to invade the board with all your pieces, surrounding your opponent’s stones until they are captured or what is known in the classic version of the game as making an ‘Atari-Go’.

How would you like to become the most feared captain on the ocean and have more style than Jack Sparrow? Then in this game your goal will be to identify the positions of the enemy’s fleets and sink them until they reach the depths of the sea.
First, you must find a friend who is just as cunning and competitive as you are so that you can make the game more exciting. Then you need to count on the 2 boards that have 2 squares with axes of numbers and letters. You can place your fleet either vertically or horizontally, but once you place them in play you can’t move them anymore.
The idea is to shoot at your opponent’s 5 ships. But don’t worry, these aren’t literal shots, this game is more strategic than violent.
Every time it’s your turn to attack, you will have to indicate the square that is defined by a letter and a number. That is, the upper left box is A-1. If you hit the shot, your opponent will have to place a piece on his fleet or say water in case you missed. And you must mark the successful and failed attacks on your board.
When you have identified the exact position of your enemy’s fleets, then you will have sunk his crew and then, guess what?
You will have become the captain of the game!

Mystery, suspense, clues, suspicions, and murder. All this and much more is what you will find in Cluedo.
To play it you’ll need your pen and notebook because you’ll become a detective. Keep in mind that you won’t be the only one trying to solve the case, because in this game you could find up to 5 more inspectors.
The first thing to do is to place the characters and weapons in the center of the board, take 3 cards that give a possible track of the place, the object, and the murderer of Dr. Black. Then you must keep the 3 cards that have the truth of the murder in an envelope.
Once you start the game you will have to roll the dice to start to move the character on the board that represents the mansion where the murder happened. Keep in mind that you can only move to each room horizontally or vertically. And here is where you will use your research skills; because if you manage to enter any room you will make a deduction and if any of your companions have any card that matches your hypothesis, they will have to show you the card.
Finally, once you have made all the necessary deductions, someone will be able to launch the final accusation to solve the case. But watch out! Because if after having looked at the envelope the accusation turns out to be false, must be abandoned; and the inspector who succeeds in his hypothesis will become the new Sherlock Holmes.

If you’ve played Pictionary, Trivial, or Tabu this game will be a piece of cake for you because you could say it’s a remix of all of them.
Ideally, you should play in pairs, choose the color, roll the dice, and let the fun begin!

There your partner must take a card that will tell him whether to draw, mime, lip-read or play the forbidden words. And while he or she gives their best effort by being creative, you should be very agile and guess in the shortest time possible.
But be careful to say the forbidden word while trying to decipher! Because you might lose points. So both teams will have to be very clever and use their imaginations to the fullest at the time of playing Party. Because of the more successes they have, they can get a record and if they get to 5, they must be ready for the last test to get a juicy victory.

Are you crafty with numbers? Well, here’s your chance to show your friends how easy it is to win in this game.
A very classic game, easy to play and designed for any age.
First, you need to know that each tile is divided into 2 spaces where a number from 0 to 6 can appear. Then, you and your 3 friends, (because there can be a maximum of 4), must each take 7 tiles. But watch out! None of you can see each other’s chips, otherwise, it wouldn’t be as much fun.
The one with the pair of the highest number starts. That is the double 6. Next, another player must throw a chip that has some 6. Then the next player must place a chip that matches the last number that the previous player has placed and so on.
If it’s your turn and you don’t have a chip that matches the last number placed; you must take pieces until you get the number you need to place on the table.
In case your chips run out, you must close the game and add up the numbers of each piece. Finally, the one who runs out of chips or the one who has the lowest number after adding up will be the winner.
