We all know that board games aren’t just for kids anymore. Adults still long for the days of unfolding the game board and deciding who gets to be the top hat and who ends up being the shoe. Game nights with friends and families are more popular than ever, and even bars and coffee shops invite people to bring their games in and play a while. While the classics remain the same — except for a few Monopoly tokens changing — there’s an ever-evolving class of new games that feature strategy, cooperative play, and role-playing.
This year, whatever your favorite type of play is, exciting new adventures are coming your way. Travel from Treasure Island to a forest dell and from Westeros to the magical Victorian Age. Be the hero or be the villain, the choice is yours.
Some of these board games are available now so grab one for your next game night. Others can be pre-ordered before they release later this year. Gather around the table with your friends and your favorite snacks and prepare for your next campaign!
