1.A traditional game of Scrabble to test your word-making abilities. You'd better have a dictionary nearby because you're gonna need it.
2.Or a Harry Potter Scrabble if that's more your cup of tea. It follows most of the rules as an old-school Scrabble game but spells, potion names, characters from the series, and wizarding locations all count as words.
3.A beautiful set of dice for Yatzy — another traditional game (except this version's gotten a bit of a face-lift) that'll have you pulling out your lucky rabbit's foot before each roll.
4.Mancala because I am about to crush you with colorful glass stones. I take Mancala very seriously if you couldn't tell.
5.Monopoly Fortnite so you can boogie bomb the millennials or Gen Z'ers in this battle royale version of classic Monopoly. It has many of the same elements as the video game: Tilted Towers, loot chests, the storm, and even the battle bus. So, where we dropping boys?
6.Connect 4 Shots to put your years of beer pong experience to use. It's just like regular Connect 4 except you have to bounce your colored balls from the table to the slots.
18.A stylish backgammon set to give you a new game to master. Your goal is to remove all your colored pieces from the board.
19.A fun pop-a-shot basktball set if you and your partner like to turn everything into a competition. Take turns shooting and try and get as many balls in bounds and in the hoop before time expires.
20.A wooden tic-tac-toe set that'll take you back to your childhood, except you're no longer playing on a piece of notebook paper.
21.Or a more complex multi-level tic tac toe board for kids and adults who want to try something new. You can win three ways: getting three same-sized pieces in a row, lining up three different-sized pieces in ascending or descending order, or positioning three concentric circles in one spot.
22.A strategy-based railroad-building game like Ticket to Ride because it'll take you on a journey across North America without you ever having to leave your home (or even the couch!).
23.Villainous, a game where you play as Disney baddies so you can finally see evil triumph — y'know, if you're into that sort of thing.
24.A 4-in-1 game table to keep you entertained when you don't know what to play. It comes with air hockey, finger football, foosball, and table tennis.
25.A tabletop cornhole set if you're a Midwest transplant and missing home a little bit. We'll save the bags vs. baggo vs. beanbags vs. cornhole debate for another day.
26.Codenames Duet, a co-op version of my favorite word association game that'll encourage team bonding because guess what — you're both on the same team!
27.The Exploding Kittens card game for fans of felines and flare-ups — but not together. The objective is to use your action cards to avoid the exploding kitten and outlast your opponents.
28.Forbidden Island, another co-op card game, because capturing sacred treasures from a sinking island is more rewarding when you do it together.
30.Words With Friends, a fan-favorite app game to stay connected when you can't be with your friends and family.
31.Crossy Road, a retro Frogger-style arcade phone app game if your only goal for today is to get your character from point A to point B without getting run over. Take your competition to the next level and go head to head using the split-screen format if you're playing on the same device.
32.Badland, an adventure phone app game that'll wow you with its critically acclaimed art style. The objective is to take your blob through the obstacle course, and it has both co-op and competitive modes.
33.Duel Otters, an adorable phone app game for going head to head against your competitor in a series of mini games, including matching contests, speed-clicking matches, and batting competitions.
34.A deck of cards because you don't need a fancy game board and a million pieces to have fun.
