Our Number One Best Seller. For kids, kids at heart, sports enthusiasts, and anyone who loves FUN!

Klask board game box


This is our best-selling game this holiday season (and last season... and the one before that) at Board's Edge Games, and it's easy to see why. As our Guest Geek writes, "It is scientifically impossible to play Klask without having fun." This game comes in a big, impressive box and houses a clever magnetic air-hockey-esque table that goes neatly back into the closet after the game is done. It's sheer joy built for two players! Don't wait on this one though, because we're selling out fast!

This one's for the kids

Exploding Kittens

It's fast, it's fun, it's simple, and it's silly. Your kid has probably played it at school (even if they don't have quite all those pesky rules down), so you'll be able to hit the ground running. This is a perennial best seller at Board's Edge, and it even fits nicely into a stocking (until it explodes, that is).

For the traveler

Parks board game box cover


This game has got it all. Gorgeous art from the 59 Parks series, a theme that got us through the bleak stuck-at-home days of 2020, and a game that managed to inspire us to travel to these Parks once we got past the pandemic blues. Want to commemorate a special trip? Want to plan your next vacation? Check out Parks.

For family game night

Kaboom! Okay, it might be a little much to have two exploding games on our gift list this year, but hear me out. We promise, nothing actually explodes. This game is a fast-paced mix of luck, luck, and luck. Everyone plays at the same time, so there's no waiting around. We pull this out for game night again and again. We bet you will too. Great for families with kids ages 8+.
