Classic Board Games That Everyone Can Enjoy

Whether it is dominoes, chess, or snakes and ladders, there are countless classic board games perfect for your next social gathering.

One vs One

Chess – The classic game that everyone has played, Chess is still one of the best games to play against a partner. With countless strategies available as every player employs their own tactics, Chess is endlessly replayable as you devise different techniques for each new match. While many games have tried to iterate on the original concept, Chess remains the champion of 1 vs 1 board games.

Guess Who? – The guessing game that has entertained players for generations, Guess Who remains a favourite. The easy-to-understand game sees both players choosing a character that they don’t reveal to their opponent. They then take turns asking yes or no questions about the character, such as if they have brown hair or are wearing a hat, until they can guess the other player’s character. Quick, simple, and fun for the whole family.

Battleship – For those wanting to feel like a Navy captain, Battleship allows players to launch torpedoes at each other until one’s fleet has been sunk. With both players given a handful of ships, they take turns aiming at squares on the board until they score a hit. The simple game made with plastic boards and pegs has been igniting sibling rivalries for decades.

Family Fun

Snakes & Ladders – The classic game that has entertained families all over the world, Snakes & Ladders is easy to learn for people of all ages. As everyone starts on the same tile, they take turns rolling the dice to try and reach the end first. But look out for those pesky snakes that will move you backwards, while using the handy ladders to your advantage to move ahead of the pack. Multiple versions of the game exist, with each adding new twists on the formula, but the classic original remains the best.

Monopoly – The game responsible for more relationship breakdowns than any other, Monopoly remains a favourite thanks to its classic gameplay. As players move around the board collecting money and properties, they compete against each other to avoid bankruptcy. Countless variations of Monopoly exist, from The Simpsons to Star Wars, meaning there is a Monopoly game for everyone to enjoy.

Jenga – Those looking for a game that is easy to transport around for those nights away, Jenga sees players taking turns pulling blocks from a stacked tower. With each removed block bringing the tower closer to toppling over, the one who brings it all crashing down is declared the loser.

More Brainpower Involved

Risk – A game designed to recreate strategic warfare; Risk sees players taking the role of competing nations as they wage war on each other. Make alliances and betray your friends as you seek to conquer the world. On the battlefield, anything goes.

Trivial Pursuit – For those who love flexing their knowledge of the world, Trivial Pursuit sees players drawing cards filled with trivia. Answer right, and you get a point. Questions come in a range of categories, from history to entertainment, and recent versions have been tailored to focus on more modern events and inventions.

Clue – If you consider yourself a bit of an amateur detective, Clue lets you put your crime solving skills to the test. You arrive at a mansion only to discover a murder has occurred, and you must piece the clues together to reveal who is responsible, along with where the murder took place and what fatal weapon was used
