Strategy games:

Players addicted to brainy challenges can fire up their competitive side with these first two games.

Otrio is a 2 – 4 player strategy game. So players can go head-to-head to head-to-head. The rules are simple but the game is complex.

Depending on the wit of your opponent, players may need to sharpen your strategic skills and exercise critical thinking.

Otrio is engaging, challenging and beautifully built. The stunning game board is made of solid wood, giving players an elegant playing experience. So not only is playing it fun, but it looks great on your coffee table.

Santorini is another strategy-based board game that’s exhilarating and intellectually challenging. The game requires tactical maneuvering and is great for kids and adults alike.

You can play as a family, a team or one to one. It requires two or more players, which is perfect for almost any gathering.

Competitive games:

Rock Me Archimedes is a great holiday gift that engages visual perception and decision-making skills. Not only is it addictive, but this game is great for mental acuity!

What’s not to love strategy, skill and really steady hands! Plus it’s the perfect decoration for any home office.

If you are looking to race against the clock, Hedbanz is a game where that’s certainly the case.

This game includes 62 Picture cards for players to try and figure out who or what is showing on the card on their hedbanz solely by asking “Yes” or “No” questions before the time expires.

As you can imagine, these types of interactive games are something that the whole family can get excited about.

Interactive games:

Wobbly Worm is a ring toss game for kids and it brings twisting, turning fun to playtime. It really easy to set up so the fun can get started quickly. 2 to 3 players try to loop their hoop over the elusive wiggly worm.

Each player gets three different-sized hoops of the same color. Press the start button on the apple and Wobbly Worm will wiggle and wobble around.

Soggy Doggy is a top seller this season. Soggy Doggy is an action-packed, suspense-filled board game where players race around the board and take turns giving Soggy Doggy a bath.

He loves to shake himself dry, so see who will be the first to get soaked!
