I absolutely love board games, as is evidenced by the jampacked assorted boxes in my closet. As such, I'm always happy to recommend the best games to friends or family. It turns out that some of my favorites are on sale this Black Friday, and I'm bursting to tell anyone who will listen. While there are dozens of Black Friday card game deals on Amazon right now, I'll just focus on two of my top picks.

I've never been able to get through a game of Cards Against Humanity without laughing so hard I start crying. The game basically plays out like an inappropriate version of Apples to Apples. Someone reads off a prompt from a black card, and then all of the other players lay down an answer card. The person who laid down the black card then chooses the funniest answer and then gives that person a point.

But, I will say that this isn't a game for everyone. If you don't like cussing, bathroom talk, or discussions of a sexual nature, you should absolutely stay clear. The themes range from politics to innuendo and basically trample over every subject you aren't supposed to discuss in polite company. This is a game best played among your best friends who get your weird sense of humor and still like you anyway.

Exploding Kittens is a far more family-friendly game of craziness. The whole point is that you're trying to get someone to pull an Exploding Kitten card. If the player is unable to defuse the kitten, then they are knocked out of the game. The things depicted and written on these cards are absolutely ridiculous and will have your group of two to five people hooting and hollering in no time. It's the perfect game for the whole family to enjoy.

Don't forget; there are plenty of other Black Friday card game deals going on right now. We'll keep an eye out and will let you know if our favorites are discounted. Happy shopping!
