Have you looked in your board game cupboard lately and found it . . . lacking? Maybe you’ve been concentrating on building your video game collection. And that’s A-OK with us. Or maybe you’ve just gotten your own place and haven’t had the chance to create a board game collection quite yet. That’s cool too. But board games are a necessary part of a complete home. After all, you’ll need something for your friends and family to play when you’re hosting Thanksgiving or on a rainy afternoon when you’re solo. That’s because most of these new board games are for one or more players. That’s right: you can spend an afternoon playing a fantastic board game on your own.

So if you think you’d like to go beyond the classic Monopoly and Scrabble as you build your board game collection, there are many options out there. And with crowdfunding campaign options, board game creators have more ways than ever to find a market for their unique products. This means you have more game options than ever before.

And we all know we should be playing more board games. In fact, Health Fitness Revolution recently reported that playing board games reduces the risk for mental diseases, lowers blood pressure, boosts your immune system, and decreases stress. For children, it can help with building critical and logical reasoning. That’s a lot of reasons to make time for playing board games. So if you find yourself indoors more these days, check out these new board games you can preorder now.
