Taboo

In this classic party game, teams compete to guess words and phrases without speaking the "taboo" words. Teams are able to pull cards that have a selection of words and then select one of those words; the hint giver will then begin to give hints as the other person begins to guess. A timer ensures that gameplay is fast and fun, while an included squeaker is used to ensure that no one runs over their time limits.

One Night Ultimate Werewolf

One Night Ultimate Werewolf is a secret role game in which villagers need to be able to identify the werewolves that are coming to eat them. A variety of unusual roles make the game a little different each time, including a Seer (who can view the identity of another person), an Insomniac (who can view their own identity even after switching has taken place), and a Drunk (who has no idea of who they are by the end of the game). A very fast-paced party game, One Night Ultimate Werewolf can be run by app and with large groups of people.

Codenames

In Codenames, two teams compete to guess the names of the opposing team's field agents -- while trying to avoid killing off innocent bystanders or triggering assassins (which can end the game). Team leaders must give clues to the opposing team's codenames, but they can only give a single word or phrase... and the number of codenames it applies to. Codenames is a competitive team game that's easy to setup and simple to play.

Settlers of Catan

Trade. Build. Settle. Currently in its 5th edition, Catan is a mainstay of any collection and winner of the "Game of the Century" award. 3 to 4 players land on the island of Catan and must take control of mountains, hills, forests, fields, deserts, and pastures, in order to collect resources.

Super Motherload

Mining doesn't sound fun, but Super Motherload isn't really a mining game. On the surface, Super Motherload is a simplified deck builder with a resource map. Digging a little deeper (sigh), there's actually quite a bit of strategy, especially when you start tacking on additional actions and activating card powers.
