Can you imagine?! Monopoly is a game that requires risk and luck, as players buy and trade properties and try to not get thrown in jail. If you have the funds, you are allowed to buy available properties. You can then make income during the game by charging your opponents rent if they land on any of the spaces that you own.

You have to have steady hands for this one. After building the Jenga tower with the wooden blocks, each player take turn to remove a wooden block from the tower and place it on top.

Who doesn’t love scrabble? For those who doesn’t know it, Scrabble is a giant word jumble with endless possibilities. Players are given a set number of wooden letter tiles to begin, and each letter is assigned a different point value. You will immediately start analysing your letter tiles to see what possible word combinations you might be able to create to play the most point-rich words. Once you or your opponent has used all your tiles, the game ends and points are tallied. But that doesn’t mean that the one who finishes his tiles is the winner. Whoever ends up with the most points is the real winner.


Now is the time we go into the BATTLEFIELD! In this two-person game, you will secretly arrange your ships on a lettered and numbered 10×10 grid and then try to locate and destroy your enemy’s fleet. There are two grids for each player. One grid is used for placing your own vessels and tracking hits made against you, while the second grid is for marking the hits targeted at your opponent. The fleet that has some ships standing is the winner.


This one is a bit physical. If you like getting twisted up in knots and probably doubled over laughing, then you are going to love this one. To play, place the game’s large vinyl mat on the floor. The mat has four rows of different coloured dots and a cardboard spinner broken up into quadrants that dictates what body part goes on what colour dot. You find yourself in the weirdest positions. The goal is to try to hold your position no matter how strange it might seem. You will definitely be eliminated if you fall. The one who can hold out the longest and will become the TWISTER CHAMPION.


Want to know what it feels like to rule the world? Then, you got to try risk! In Risk, a map of the world is spread out on the game board, and all of the continents are broken up into territories. The end goal is for one player to conquer all 42 territories and eliminate the other players along the way. But to do so, you are going to make some alliances first and when the time comes, you going to break this alliance.
