Since the CDC recommends avoiding travel during the holiday season this year in order to curb the spread of COVID-19, we're all looking for ways to make this extra time spent at home feel special. From curling up by the fire with a cup of hot cocoa to binge-watching holiday movies to competing in a rousing board game competition, there are plenty of ways to stay entertained while staying safe. We've rounded up 12 board and table games that you can enjoy all season long.

From family-friendly games your kids will love, like National Parks Opoly Junior or Telestrations, to table games you can enjoy over a round of cocktails with your adult family members or roommates, such as What Do You Meme or Codenames . Some of these options even make excellent gifts, such as the stylish travel chess and checkers set from Pendleton or a colorful backgammon game available at Anthropologie.
