The festive season is a time for family, friends, and fighting with friends and family after spending too much time cooped up with them.
This time, while magical, can also be particularly trying if all you have for entertainment is a deck of cards or a friendship-wrecking board game.
There are plenty of board – and card – games out there that don’t involve antagonising your fellow players, though.
And for the sake of your relationships, we have listed them below.
