Adult Games

We have more than kids games here on One Board Family. Here you’ll find reviews for games that are great for your next game night or just a quick game at a local coffee shop with other adults.

Review: Star Realms

Since Dominion hit the scene back in 2008, there has been no shortage of deck building games on the market. Each of these provide their own unique spin, whether it’s making them co-op, adding in superheroes, or even going as far as to replace the cards with dice!

Review: Crazier Eights – Camelot

We’ve probably all had that moment.  You’re sitting there, playing Uno or Crazy Eights, and you realize, “Wow, I have absolutely NO influence on what’s happening here.”  You match the color or the number… and then you’re done. The most exciting it gets is a Wild Draw Four.

Review: Pagoda

Building is an inherent desire in many of us. Whether its simple wooden blocks or complex Legos, the thrill of putting something together is a wonderful experience. Pagoda is not focused the building, but to me, it is what makes it wonderful. Being able to see your progress as the towers grow level by level…. it’s […]

Review: Flick Em Up

I’m a sucker for party games. When you can get 8 to 10 people around a table and have a good time, that’s a beautiful thing. Early this Summer I heard about a game called Flick ‘Em Up that sounded like a game I had to buy. At around $60, there was no way this […]

Review: Cake Duel

My army of sheepie are hungry and they need delicious cake to fill their belly! Cake Duel is the first game from Sizigi Studios and has been a lot of fun for our family. The 2-player game is a fast-paced bluffing game that plays in about 10 to 15 minutes. Players earn victory points by […]
