Favorite Board Games

My family and I have always loved board games. When I say "my family," that really means my grandparents, mother, and brother. The only game my father will play is poker and that is serious business. Today I wanted to share a game I have been loving recently and playing every weekend with Joe, and classic games that my family pulls out again and again.
Click to read now or pin to save for later! Here is a list of my favorite board games to inspire you to add to your collection

Forbidden Island

This is the game of the moment for me. What I love about it is that you work as a team, so you all win or you all lose. With sinking pieces, treasure to collect, and an ever rising water level, this is a fun game for two people or a group to play. Check it out here

Rummikub

An absolute classic in the Freitas household. Although it's a tile game with numbers, there's no math required (which is great for a girl who's terrible at mental math) and it's all about how you strategically get rid of the tiles in your hand. Check it out here

Clue

This is one of my favorite games, but it's sometimes hard to find three people willing to play. I like to think it's because I always win, but it's more likely because it can take a long time. Check it out here

Pente

This is a cut throat game where you have to decide if you're going to help out the team or continually put the brunt of the work on your fellow players. This is one of the more contentious games we play and can only stand a few rounds at a time. Check it out here.

Labryinth 

This is a game you can play solo or with a group. Again like Forbidden Island you have to collect treasure, but this time you're in an ever changing maze that requires you to visualize how all of the pieces can move to help you meet your objective. Check it out here

What are your favorite board games? Any recommendations are much appreciated!
