Board games aren't just for kids, and the options we've cultivated on this list, many of which are not safe for work, prove that. We realize they we have stretched the term board games a bit by including many items that don't actually have a board, but we feel confident that anyone looking for for activities to enjoy with their friends will find something to suit their tastes here. If raunchy is what you are looking for, then you'll definitely want to check out Cards Against Humanity, Adult Loaded Questions, and Hot Toys Inc. Sexxxtions. However, if you are interested in a game with a little more class, that you won't be concerned about playing with family members or coworkers, we recommend you consider Settlers of Catan, Spaceteam Cards, Secret Hitler, Geek Out, or Renegade Studios' Lanterns. These won't devolve into needless vulgarity, while still providing an entertaining activity for game night. Those who like strategy will find Settlers of Catan and Renegade Studios' Lanterns extremely enjoyable, and maybe even a little bit addictive.
