As the cold weather sets in, there’s nothing better than staying in with family and friends for a good old-fashioned game night. Most of us know at least one person who’s a pro at Trivial Pursuit, gets stirred up over Scrabble, or unleashes a friendly fury over Monopoly. If you have a board game lover in your life, why not give them a gift that will get their competitive juices flowing?

Whether they’re into card games, trivia challenges, or adventure quests, we've included something for every type of gamer. For nature lovers, check out the newly released Photosynthesis game—each player strategically places 3D cardboard trees on the board with the aim to gather the most sunlight. By the end of the game, there will be a forest in the center of your table!

For those with an interest in interior design, the Azul tile-laying game is inspired by the patterned azulejos ceramic tiles of the Moors. Art fans are sure to enjoy competing in Modern Art, a table-top game that involves buying and selling paintings at auctions and reselling them for profit. And if your giftee’s games cabinet is already overflowing, why not get them something to help keep their components organized, such as playing card holders or collapsible dice trays?
