The Best Board Games and Card Games for Thanksgiving Gatherings

As Thanksgiving nears, everyone starts asking the same question: once the food is done, how are you going to tolerate your family? Sure, you could dust off your old copy of Cards Against Humanity, but you already explained what bukkake means to your aunt last year. Luckily, there are a lot of other games that are fun and easy to play -- even for casual gamers.

The End is Nigh Game Review

The world is coming to an end and you -- and the other players -- are in charge of who to let into your bunker. You have a total of 24 hours to question six refugees regarding their traits, trying to locate two cultists within the pile. And you have to be careful; you only get to vote two people out throughout the game. Each refugee has their own methods of being questioned. Complicating this further is the fact that there may be fanatics amidst the players as well.

Dracula's Feast Game Review

Dracula is throwing a party... and there's a healthy cast of creatures invited. The Boogie Monster, Dr. Jekyll, Van Helsing, and even Alucard are all invited to Dracula's masquerade, and are tasked with determining who every guest is. In this hidden role game, every player has their own role, and they (with some exceptions) need to guess everyone else's role. While there are unlimited guesses, guests need to reveal their own card when they make an attempt -- thereby making it easier for everyone else.

DinoGenics: Dinosaur Park Management

In August the first DinoGenics Kickstarter project was pulled from Kickstarter. At $19,000 pledged by 266 backers of a $43,000 goal, DinoGenics was not likely to fully fund. A worker placement game about managing a Jurassic Park style park, it was selling for $65 -- a reasonable price point for a fairly large box game. But the campaign itself didn't appear to be on track to finish -- one issue being that it started with 3 to 5 players.

Gobblin' Goblins: The 'Orrible Eat-a-Thon Card Game

Gobblin' Goblins is a light, family-friendly game with an expansive range of 2 to 12 players. It's self-described as being "light, strategic, family friendly, gross." It's essentially a '"take this" game, in which players try their best to collect sets to eat as they build their deck. Players play cards, then pick up cards, and try their best to eat the things that their particular goblin character likes. From the manufacturer:

Shadowrun Zero Day

I don't get to play a lot of two player games. And it's a shame, because I really love them; a well-balanced two player game leads to some of the most satisfying strategic moments. That being said, it can also lead to some exceptionally frustrating moments.
