Holidays might sometimes be dreary after you’ve had your fill of food and all your known relatives are in one place. Spice up the night and bring out those board games and card games. We’re not talking about your usual Uno, Monopoly, or Scrabble, hello! Times have changed and so have board games. We’ve listed 8 of the best board games in the past year, purchase one and tell us how it goes!

1. Exploding Kittens

Play instead of: Uno
Players: 2-5 players
Time: 15 min

If you like card games, kittens, laser beams, explosions (because you have to at least fall into one category, right?), then this game is for you. The 52-card stack is full of clever and gross illustrations, players just need to draw cards from a pile and whoever draws the exploding kitten is immediately out of the game.. unless he has a defuse card with him. Think of it as an even more dangerous version of Uno. To make the game more fun and to include more players, purchase the First Expansion pack that comes with a human-sized cone of shame!

Get Exploding Kittens and Imploding Kittens here.


2. Speak Out

Via Hasbro

Play instead of: Everything!
Players: 4-5 players

This hilarious mouthpiece game will be the highlight of any party. Players will take turns saying phrases for others to guess all while having a mouthpiece that prevents them from closing their mouths. The team with the most correct guesses wins. If you need a push to buy this game, know that even celebrities love it! Watch this to see how fun it can get.

Purchase yours here!


3. Pie Face

Via Hasbro

Instead of: Doing nothing!
Players: As many as you want

You might have heard and seen videos of this game on the internet, boy they rose to fame! Pie Face is an easy toy where whipped cream or a wet sponge is placed on the “throwing hand” and each player takes turns to turn the handles. The hand could go off any time and if you’re unlucky, you will be the one to get splat on the face. There’s also a Pie Face Sky High version and a Pie Face Show Down where you could compete with another person.

Purchase yours here!


4. What Do You Meme?

Via Amazon

Play instead of: Cards Against Humanity
Players: Minimum of 4

If you’re looking for a laid-back fun game, WDYM is the one! The rules are simple; each player must drop a Caption Card that would best be paired with the Photo Card in play. The person with the best combination wins. Just think of all the possibilities each meme could have!

You can order yours here at Ludo or at Lazada.
