10 Great Board Games and Puzzles

Jigsaw puzzles and board games are always around on Christmas. They make great gifts because they provide hours and hours of fun. Plus, they’re excellent for bringing the family together during the festive season.

But, which ones are the best ones? We’ve created a list of 10 games and puzzles that you’re sure to love!

  1. Incohearent Party Game

Incohearent party game

Incohearent is a party game that has you deciphering what sounds like gibberish. You’ll race the timer to figure out what ‘lits gat diss burr rad’ means, for example. Spoiler: it’s ‘Let’s get this bread’. Second spoiler: some of the phrases are dirty enough to fail a health inspection, which is why this game is only for players aged 17+.

  1. Escape From the Grand Hotel

Escape from the Grand Hotel game

If you love escape rooms, or have always wanted to try one but get a little claustrophobic, you’ll love Escape From the Grand Hotel! This game is just like an escape room, but you can play it in your own home. Move through the rooms of the Grand Hotel, solving puzzles and piecing together the mystery as you do.

  1. Portapuzzle Jigsaw Puzzle Board

Portapuzzle Standard Jigsaw Puzzle Board

The Portapuzzle is perfect for the jigsaw puzzle lover who feels bad about taking over the dining room table for a week per puzzle. Build your puzzle inside the Portapuzzle and, when you’re done for the day, simply zip it up. The fabric holds your puzzle perfectly in place, letting you store it anywhere you like.

  1. Jumanji Board Game

Jumanji board game

Are you brave enough to face the perils of the jungle, no care for the scary drums, stampedes, and crazed hunters? Great, you’ll love the Jumanji board game!

Based on the game from the original movie, players move towards the centre of the board, navigating the deadly creatures and hazards as they go. The first one to make it to the centre and shout ‘Jumanji’ wins!

  1. Huzzle Cast Puzzle – News

Huzzle Cast Puzzle News Level 6

This Huzzle Puzzle is based on a compass, though is a lot more difficult to figure out. In fact, it’s so shrouded in mystery that even describing it would give away its solution. With a difficulty rating of 6/6, it’s perfect for serious puzzle fans.

  1. Telestrations Game

Telestrations Game

Telestrations is like the telephone game… but with illustrations. Players begin by sketching a word they pick, then passing it to the next player who has to write down what they see. They pass that on and the next player draws what’s written. Can anyone end up with the original word? It’s going to be tough, and a lot of laughs are going to be had along the way!

  1. Harry Potter Hogwarts Express 3D Puzzle

Hogwarts Express 3D Puzzle

This Hogwarts Express 3D puzzle is like a jigsaw puzzle and a model all magically morphed into one. It’s made up of a whopping 500 pieces and measures an impressive 61 cm x 46 cm when completed. It’s great fun for ages 6+.

  1. Wasgij A Piece of Pride 1000 Piece Puzzle

Wasgij Pride A Celebration 1000 Piece Jigsaw Puzzle

This Wasgij Pride jigsaw puzzle is not only challenging because of its bright, busy image. Nope, it’s challenging because, in order to solve it, you have to guess what the old lady on the cover is seeing. Piece it together with Pride!
