If you're interested in board games, you've probably already heard about the popular board game titles that have been around for years, such as Monopoly, Clue, and Scrabble. But there are many more out there. Some are old classics, such as chess. Others have been around for less than a decade, including one of the newest in the market place, Settlers of Catan. There are also some great games that have become popular at the local level, such as Uno, and even more that have been embraced by the gaming community, including Talisman.

A few weeks ago, I was invited to play a game of Cards Against Humanity with some friends. This wasn't my first time playing, but it was the first time I noticed how addictive it really is. I couldn't stop laughing, and the next morning I couldn't stop thinking about how much fun I had. Before I knew it, I had bought my own copy and was teaching my friends to play. Unfortunately, my friends weren't as impressed by the game as I was, and they quickly lost interest after the novelty wore off. I, on the other hand, became obsessed. I thought about it during class, during my commute to work, and while I was on my lunch breaks.
