Whether we grew up playing them with our siblings or enjoy them today with our kids, this list of board games is sure to bring back some fond, and likely competitive, memories. While a complete list of board games would be difficult to perfect, these board games, young and old, are the best and most popular of the bunch.

Classics like Monopoly, Scrabble and Risk are joined by the newcomers like Apples to Apples and Ghettopoly to provide a vast selection of options for game night. Even some of the oldest games known to exist made the list such as the vintage favorites like Chess, Backgammon, Chinese checkers and Reversi.

What are the best reasons to play board games? Board games provide not only a reason to get together with friends for a fun time, but also a way to test your skills like trivia, with games like Trivial Pursuit, your deduction skills, such as playing Battleship or Clue, or your poise, such as with Operation and Jenga. There's even some for the younger kids with the likes of the classic Candy Land and Hungry, Hungry Hippos making the list. The names of board games old and new can all be found on this list of all board games.

Sadly, the competitive nature of board games has led to some tragedies with more than a few board games leading to murder.

Whatever your age or your skill set, the wide variety of board games available means there's a little something for everyone. As for the best board game of all time, the jury's still out on that one.
