9 Board Games You Won’t Easily Get Bored Of

With the cold weather closing in and the dark nights creeping up, everyone’s starting to move themselves inside for those longer winter nights. As you get cosy by the fire with a nice mug of your favourite hot drink, you’re probably searching for something to do other than watch that episode of Friends for the 40th time (The One Where Joey Speaks French – a classic!). In an age where everything is digital it’s often quite nice to take things back a step and return to a classic board game. We’re big fans of the humble board game here at IWOOT, so we’ve rounded up our top 9 board games you won’t easily get bored of this winter. *Disclaimer; IWOOT accepts no responsibility for any disagreements, divorces, or other family related problems that may arise from too much of an intense game of Monopoly.
