2. Riddle Cube will turn your family into a pack of shape shifters.

"I’ve found my new go-to birthday gift! RiddleCube is a great game, the kind you can easily pick up for a few minutes or an hour, on your own or with a group, whether you want to keep score or just do a few rounds for fun. My 9-year-old was immediately attracted to its tactile nature, and my 4-year-old loved inventing her own versions of the shapes we were attempting."—Christa Bartlett

3. Yeti in my Spaghetti is a delightful way to pass the time before dinner's ready.

4. Here & Now is a fast-paced version of Monopoly you'll be able to finish in one sitting.

BuzzFeed worked with Milton Bradley to create this unique twist on the old classic that includes new cities and rules that make it much more efficient."A great addition to our family game cabinet! My kids love learning about geography and the world, and the added game feature of the passport trays and 'stamps' make the game fun while adding a natural 'end' to the game. The money is simplified, yet totally perfect for adding and making change, giving great math practice for the kids. A fun time for the whole family."—Laura SutherlandPrice: $14.99

6. Moustache Smash is a hairy — excuse me — very good time

"Watching a group of 13-year-olds play Moustache Smash is like watching a Black Friday sale with everyone fighting for the same discounted towels. I couldn't help but laugh hysterically as each girl held the mustache up to her face then frantically tried to be the first to smash the card that either matched the color or the shape of their mustache. "—The Three Woods

9. Ring It tends to be a bit noisy (in a marvelous way).

"I purchased it for my 5-year-old but after everyone saw how fun it was, we all joined in to play during Thanksgiving dinner. Warning! The people playing this game get very loud and you should play on a sturdy non-glass table top. There will be multiple people slamming their hands down on the bell. Also, your eyes will leak with joy and your cheeks will be sore from all the laughter. Enjoy!"—SunnySideUp24

10. Blurble is an exciting game for "quick-witted people."

"It's been fun to play with adults as well as a great learning tool playing with my 6-year-old nephew. It's very versatile in that you can make up your own rules and themes if you are wanting to change things up or add a challenge. It's also easy and convenient to bring along on outings or trips."—KrozPrice: $17.98

Price: $15.99

21. Letter Tycoon lets you build an "alphabet empire".

"A sort of cross between Scrabble and Monopoly, however this game actually ends in a reasonable amount of time. I have a 10-year-old that loves to play it. Helps with spelling and concentration. In this era of digital everything, this is a family board game that does not leave the family bored. Good fun for any age."—Stonecoldmark

Price: $35

22. Diamonsters is a sweet game to play with younger children.

"Simple enough that our 5-year-old can play while still being fun for mom, dad, and our 10-year-old. Recommended for 2-4 players but it's definitely better with more people. Game play is fast (around 10 to 15 minutes). Will be a good addition to our travel games collection."—Tim OngPrice: $13.96
