What better way to show off who’s smarter in the office than with a game of Scrabble. For those of you who are unsure of the rules, Scrabble revolves around unscrambling your letters to create a word, then placing it on the board for points. The longer your word and more uncommon letters you use, the more points you score. Losing is not an option for you here as you need to prove your intelligence. Fortunately for you, there are tools and apps you can use to rearrange the letters and give yourself an advantage in the game. All you need to do with these apps is put the letters you have into them, and they will then show you what words you can make and how many points you can get for making them. While this isn’t the fairest tactic, when office pride is on the line, you need to step up and do whatever it takes to win. Scrabble is always a fun game that can be played in your break room.
Love letter is a new age board game that does away with a bulky setup and relies on a few tokens and cards to play. The game involves card counting, deception, and strategy, to figure out the identity of other players while keeping your own a secret. If your identity is determined or if your score is too low, you will find yourself eliminated from a round. Don’t worry about this though, as these rounds last only a few minutes and you’ll find yourself right back in the game. This is an amazing game to have at work because it tests everyone’s deception skills while also having a game that moves quickly and does not require a time limit. The winner of a round receives a token, and while most games go up to three to four tokens, you can play this for as long or as short as you want. If you want a fast game that you can quickly get going at work, Love Letter is the one for you.

If you are looking for a classic game with a modern twist, Monopoly Deal is a great game for you.
Board games are fun for everyone and the winners are often given a high amount of bragging rights. Don’t let yourself be the loser of any of these games and keep all the bragging rights to yourself.
