Board Game Recommendations
December is a great time for reflection and spending time with family and friends. Knowing that you’ll most likely be spending anywhere from a few hours to possibly even days with loved ones at your Summit Square apartment in Lee’s Summit, MO, plan to have a few games to pass the time and create new memories. We love the games that we found on sites like BoardGameGeek and Not Bored Board Game Reviewer. Take a few minutes to scroll through our list and see if there’s something you think you’d like to play!
“This is the role of a proper Victorian gentleman: to acquire valuable property, to attend formal dinners, and to impress influential people. In other words, the proper Victorian gentleman is intolerably dull. Maybe it's time to have a little fun. You compete in three distinct endeavors: trying to lose an election, trying to get rid of all your possessions, or trying to offend the most influential people in high society.”
“Spyfall is played over several rounds, and at the start of each round all players receive cards showing the same location — except that one player receives a card that says ‘Spy’ instead of the location. Players then start asking each other questions — ‘Why are you dressed so strangely?’ or ‘When was the last time we got a payday?’ or anything else you can come up with — trying to guess who among them is the spy. The spy doesn't know where he is, so he has to listen carefully. When it's his time to answer, he'd better create a good story!” This is a fun bluffing game for up to 12 players.
“The lunch break is almost there and all of the young penguins would finally get the fish they’ve been craving. However, some rascals think they are quick enough to snatch some of the fish before the lunch break starts, but they have forgotten one thing – the Hall Monitor! Each school day one of the penguins is designated to watch over the school, and this is his moment to shine – for each rascal penguin he catches he would get additional fish!” This is a great dexterity game for 2 to 4 players.
This award-winning classic can be played with up to 18 players, takes only 25 minutes to play, and takes seconds to learn. “How to play: 1) Someone reads a question. 2) Everyone writes down a guess. 3) The guesses are placed face up on the table and ordered smallest to largest. 4) Players place their Betting Tokens on the guess they think is closest to the right answer. Players score one poker chip for a correct bet or for having the closest guess. On the seventh and final question, players can bet their poker chips. The player with the most poker chips after this question wins.”
