Remember rainy days at school? You couldn’t go out for recess so you filed into the gym and played board games. Those days, beating the pants off your friends in Chutes and Ladders were so much fun, they almost made you wish it would rain everyday, just so you could stay in and play board games.

Too bad this doesn’t happen in adulthood. As a grown up, we have to go to work regardless of the weather and when we get there, no one ever says “let’s forget about work today and break out Monopoly!”

But there’s no reason you can’t do that anyway (after hours of course) and, if you add a little twist, you’ll never look at game night the same way again:

  1. Operation drunk: Remember how hard it was to remove Cavity Sam’s (yes, the guy in Operation has a name) organs? Every time you fail at organ removal, take a shot. Note: Do not try this when taking board exams.
  2. Battle of the beer pong battalion: There is a version of Battleship where you make boats big enough to hold shot glasses and if you really want to up the ante, invest in a jax ball (remember those?) and prepare for battle! 
  3. Tic Tac Oh!: Bored at work? This’ll liven up your day; challenge a playmate to a game of tic tac toe via snap chat. This version is played with pictures of yourself on a game board you draw. The more creative the picture, the more fun the game…
  4. Draw them a picture: Pictionary was awesome as a kid but if you amend the rules to only allow pics of body parts and certain acts, it gets a whole lot better…
  5. Party like a Rockstar: rockstar rehab is an actual board game in which you pretend to live the lives of your favorite train wrecks, complete with game board, cards, and gold stars (I have no idea what the gold stars are for…). If you want to get really crazy, take an actual drink (or puff) whenever your character does!
  6. Do it all for the nookii: For as long as you’re checking out adult board games, here’s another one; Nookii confidential assigns players with a series of sensual tasks that takes “friends with benefits” to a whole new level! You’ll use coded messages, secret instructions, and imaginative maneuvers as part of the game. Mirror, mirror on the wall, who’s the hottest one of all?
  7. Skeletons in the closet: What juicy details are your friends hiding? Download this form and find out! Note: The events on this card have a dollar amount, so the badder you were, the richer you’ll be!
  8. Twisted: There are two ways to improve on Twister (which is already pretty awesome); Either someone takes a shot every time they fall or they lose an article of clothing…or both.
  9. Mad fun: Adult Mad Libs. That’s all I’m saying.
  10. Dirty minds: Is your brain as big as your…? Test yourself by playing 7 Deadly Sins; Trivial Pursuit for grown ups. Play time just got real…
