What Do You Meme?
This card game is definitely for the social media generation and meme lovers. Do you have what it takes to out-meme your friends IRL? Compete to create the funniest meme by pairing caption cards with the photo card in play. Each round, everyone plays a caption card to complete the meme photo card. But, the judge decides the funniest pairing, and whoever played that card wins the round. Certainly, this game isn’t for the kiddos, so make sure to play with friends and family! Additionally, you can purchase extension packs from your favorite movies or TV shows.

Specifically, it makes for a perfect gift, too!
Secret Hitler is a dramatic game set in 1930’s Germany. Players are secretly divided into two teams – liberals and fascists. Known only to each other, the fascists coordinate to install their leader. The liberals must find and stop the Secret Hitler before it’s too late. Each round, players elect a President and a Chancellor who will work together to enact a law from a random deck. If the government passes a fascist law, players must try to figure out if they were betrayed or simply unlucky. Secret Hitler also features government powers that come into play as fascism advances. The fascists will use those powers to create chaos unless liberals can pull the nation back from the brink of war. This is a especially a game for those who like history. So, try this one for a serious and interesting game night.
Exploding Kittens is a card game for people who are into kittens and explosions! In this highly-strategic, kitty-powered version of Russian roulette, players draw cards until someone draws an exploding kitten, at which point they explode, and they are out of the game. Unless that player has a defuse card, which can defuse the kitten using things like laser pointers, belly rubs, and catnip sandwiches. All of the other cards in the deck are used to move, mitigate, or avoid the exploding kittens. This version is family friendly. But, there are also not so family friendly versions, if you’re into that. So, this fun game is bound to be a conversation piece at any party.
Codenames: win or lose, it’s fun to figure out the clues. This is the game where two rival spymasters know the secret identities of 25 agents. Their teammates know the agents only by their Codenames. Additionally, teams compete to see who can make contact with all of their agents first. So, spymasters give one-word clues that can point to multiple words on the board. Their teammates try to guess words of the right color while avoiding those that belong to the opposing team. And everyone wants to avoid the assassin.
