Don't let your friends get "board" next time they come over.

Out of all the board games and party games out there, there is one you absolutely love and are willing to play over and over, and one you downright refuse — because you hate it that much. Everyone has that ONE game that no matter what, they are not going to touch at game night with their friends, and a lot of it can be based in astrology and be dependent on your zodiac sign.

Personally, I hate, hate, hate Monopoly. As in I would rather die than have to sit through an entire game of Monopoly. 

That sounds dramatic (it is) but it’s true. I already know I wouldn't get along with whoever created that terrible game.

One time I was playing Monopoly with some friends and the game got so out of hand and savage that the board was flipped, beer was spilled, everyone was cursing at each other, and we didn't speak for over a week.

On the other hand, I love Scrabble. I am always ready to get down with Scrabble and win that crap. Oh, we’re going to Grandma’s?

Let me grab my Scrabble board and dictionary and I’ll be ready! It’s not just for old people, though, I swear.

Maybe it’s because I’m a writer, but Scrabble is my jam.

It’s hit or miss with these types of games. This is where your zodiac sign comes in. The characteristics of each zodiac sign in astrology are important when talking about board games.

Every game requires a different set of skills and interests and, depending on your horoscope you’ll either love it or hate it.

After much detail-diving and consideration, here is a list of board games each zodiac sign should play. Not only will you have fun but adult play time is good for your health, too. 

Start that group chat with your game-loving friends and grab a 12-pack because you’re about to find your new favorite game!


Aries (March 21 - April 19): Monopoly

Aries, you're who I was talking about above. Your competitive nature from being a fire sign really shows when you whip out a Monopoly board and Aries loves it!

Monopoly is a combination of strategy and luck and if you’re good at it you basically rule the board game kingdom. Your trying to rule said kingdom and practice makes perfect.

It won’t be a quiet, easy game. Everyone is in for an interesting night with Monopoly, especially when played with you, Aries.

Taurus (April 20 - May 20): Funemployed

Taurus, you’ll get a kick out of playing this mock interview game where your qualifications are something to laugh about (in the game, calm down).

One person lays down a career card and everyone else puts down a card with some type of qualification that may or may not have anything to do with the job. Then, whoever picked the career card has to choose the best or funniest qualification card.

It’s basically Cards Against Humanity, job edition. You will love this game because it has a real-life sense to it and you’ll feel accomplished the more jobs you get, so to speak.

Gemini (May 21 - June 20): Cards Against Humanity

This is a perfect game for a Gemini. It combines both humor and wit, both of which you have a lot of.

The outrageous cards in this Apples To Apples-esque game are to die for and will have you constantly rolling with laughter.

You will be able to bring out their sarcasm in full force and get away with it (and win!) while playing Cards Against Humanity.

There is a multitude of editions, so make sure you try out some of the others and not just the original! I don’t recommend playing this with anyone who lacks a good sense of humor, though.

Cancer (June 21 - July 22): 5 Second Rule

Cancers, get ready for a good time with this one. You’ll have to think quickly and get creative.

In short, each card begins with “Name 3…” and when it's your turn, you have five seconds to blurt out whatever three things the card asked. Say the card says to name three foods that begin with the letter R. You have to come up with three ASAP!

This is a great game for you because of your wild imagination and you won’t fail to come up with some crazy answers. It’ll also keep you on your toes!

Leo (July 23 - August 22): Watch Ya Mouth

Leos, this game was made for you. It will certainly make everyone laugh and you’ll be the life of the party if you show up sporting Watch Ya Mouth.

If it’s your turn, you have to wear an obnoxious mouth guard that makes it nearly impossible to understand you.

Then, you’re stuck reading a card while the other players attempt to decode what you are saying.

Trust me; you won’t be able to hold back a laugh here.

Virgo (August 23 - September 22): Midnight Outburst

If I’m being honest, everyone will enjoy this game but you Virgo signs will love it! It feeds into your detail-oriented character and brings out how much you know about popular topics as well.

There are two teams, and it can get pretty wild so don’t play when the kids are asleep. One team will read a card that has a topic, a hint, and 10 top possible answers. The other team has 45 seconds to yell out as many answers as possible and try to match all 10 top answers on the card.

Virgos, anything you’ve ever paid attention to can come up in this game so you have an advantage.

Libra (September 23 - October 22): We Didn't Playtest This At All

This is the most random game, maybe ever. You’ll never be able to play a boring game of We Didn't Playtest This At All!

All you have to do is go around in a circle picking a card and following its instructions. That’s it. Talk about easiest game directions in the world. BUT every card has something completely random on it.

You might be solving a math equation one turn and drawing a map of Narnia the next.

I literally just made those examples up, but you get the idea. Prepare for a wild ride, Libras.

Scorpio (October 23 - November 21): Exploding Kittens

Exploding Kittens is basically a card version of Russian roulette, another reason (besides the name of the game) why Scorpios will love it. Each player takes turns drawing a card from the deck. If you pick up the card with an exploding kitten, you’re out. But if you have special cards, such as a diffuser card or skip.

The most appealing part of the game is the secrecy. You love being the only one to know something, like exactly where the exploding kitten card is in the deck, etc.

Sagittarius (November 22 - December 21): Monikers

This game is a combination of charades and Indian poker, and perfect for your creative and intuitive nature, Sagittarius.

Players are divided into teams and given 8 cards. Each team chooses its favorite 5 cards to put in the middle. There are three rounds to the game, with each round eliminating players and getting more difficult than the prior round.

The first round requires players to use words, sounds, and gestures in order for the players to guess the name on the card. In round 2 you can only use sounds and gestures, and in the last round, it’s basically just charades.

Let your creative juices flow, Sagittarius and buckle up for a game of Monikers.

Capricorn (December 22 - January 19): Catan

Your practical nature will draw you to Catan. This basic game of strategy and resources will make you wish we could just go back to trading instead of using currency.

The board is set up with tiles displaying wheat, wood, ore, or brick. You must then create roads and build settlements to get more supplies and build more settlements. It’s a simple concept, but it does require a steady plan and some foresight.

Use your level-headed noggin to get the good ground and win this one, Capricorns.

Aquarius (January 20 - February 18): Scrabble

Although Scrabble was created when our grandparents were kids, it’s still a great game that is perfect for you, Aquarius.

You are a talented thinker and enjoys a game that keeps his or her brain working until the end. I’m assuming everyone knows how to play scrabble but if not, here’s a quick rundown of the rules.

Each player gets seven letters and takes turns using these letters to spell out words on the board. At the end, you’ll have no letters (that’s how you win) and the board will look like a crossword puzzle.

Oh, and keep a dictionary nearby to ensure every word used is real.

You get to use your smarts to beat others, which is a win-win for an Aquarius.

Pisces (February 19 - March 20): Telestrations

You are a deeply creative sign, Pisces, which means Telestrations is going to be this water sign’s new favorite game.

It’s similar to Pictionary and telephone, you know, that game you played as a kid where you’d whisper something in someone’s ear and pass it on until the last person says what he heard.

But in this case, you draw whatever word the other player writes, or guess the picture the player draws.

This game lets you get as creative as possible while keeping a competition going.
