But there are so many new options nowadays. Whether you're looking to while away a rainy afternoon with your child or spend quality time with your romantic partner on a quiet Saturday night at home, this list offers fresh ideas for couples with a wide range of required skills, challenge-levels, and themes.

Editor's Notes

January 10, 2019:

Took note of how many awesome new board games have been invented in the past decade or so, and felt that it would be most useful to provide a guide to those. Also made sure to pick a few easy, popular classics, because it's well understood that not everyone is necessarily looking for a new challenge when it comes to board games.
