Ticket to Ride is a game where players collect cards representing train routes connecting the United States and Canada, with some of these trains crossing into Mexico or Europe.

It's one of the best trivia board games that both kids and adults enjoy.

Dominion

Each card is worth money, victory points, or an action that affects other players' kingdoms. Every time the last card from your 55-card starting deck is drawn and put into play, you shuffle up your discard pile and put it back into your deck so that you can keep playing indefinitely.

Munchkin

If players can kill more monsters than the other player, they have won. Research shows that board games have a positive impact on your mind and body. They help you to have a better memory.

This is one of the most challenging and exciting board games you should consider playing with family or friends at home. Players take turns giving clues to their teammates, who must guess words without using any "taboo" words on the provided card. If players say an incorrect word or use a taboo, they must sit out for the next turn.

Scrabble

Get ready to play a word game, where players use letter tiles to form words. According to studies, educational games boost intelligence. Points are scored for forming these words on a board of 100 squares in length and 20 columns in width divided into two halves by the center square (the "dividing line"). This one's great if you're looking for something quick and competitive.
