At Porter’s, we’re always making sure we’ve got what’s new and fun. Games make fantastic gifts for Christmas; and we have all kinds of games for every person on your list. We have a lot of unique games that are perfect for your family this season–whether you’re trying to break the ice with your daughter’s boyfriend or trying to keep the kids from running wild. Games make a great “downtime” activity. We’ve got some amazing deals right now as well! Here are 10 of our favorite new games this year that you won’t want to miss out on.
WHO’STHEDUDE? Who’sTheDude? is both bizarre and hilarious! It comes with an inflatable bearded “Dude” and charade prompts. You can act out movie scenes, love ballads, or random professions with “TheDude“. This is a great gift for a creative family with teenagers or older. Never a Doll moment in this game!
3-8 players ages 16+.
“It’s like UNO, except there are goats, magical enchiladas, and kittens that can kill you.”–CNN Exploding Kittens is a safe and strategic version of Russian Roulette for cat lovers (which according to YouTube is everyone on the internet). Players take turns drawing cards until someone draws the “exploding kitten”, making them lose the game. You can, however, diffuse the cat bomb with cards like “laser pointers,” “belly rubs,” and “catnip sandwiches.” All other cards are used to move, mitigate, and avoid the explosions.
2-5 players 7+.
Winner of a 2014 Creative Child Preferred Choice Award, Zombie Run! is a great card game to play with your kids.The player with the lowest amount of zombies chasing them after 5 rounds can escape the town and win the game! Being a game of memory and luck, it’s a great gift for a kid with braaaaaaaaaaaaaains!
2 or more players ages 7+.
We love “Grandpa Beck’s Games” at Porter’s! They’ve made games like “Cover Your Assets, “Nuts About Mutts,” and “Golf”. The game that we’ve had many customers call in for this season is Skull King. It actually won “Game of theYear”! If your family likes strategy or bidding games, you can’t go wrong with this pirate themed deck.
2-6 players ages 8+
WTF: WHAT THE FISH! WTF: What the Fish! is a cut-throat card game where you fight for your fish to be the last fish standing (or swimming, if you will). You collaborate with teammates to take down opponents and then it’s a fight to the bitter end. Protection and WTF cards can save your life; but if your opponent gets one–you’re a fish out of water! This is a fun fast paced game for a competitive family.
2-6 Players ages 8+
TACO TAKEOVER Taco Takeover is absolutely adorable. Holding your ingredient cards in a taco shell, you race to see who can fill orders first. Be careful of “La Cucaracha” and “Antacid” cards–you’ll have to dump your taco and start again! Taco ’bout a perfect gift! Seriously though, the tiny taco shells are darling. Taco Takeover also comes with a drawstring storage bag.
2-4 players ages 6+
This game is all about strategy and probability–but having an affinity for sushi probably helps! You compete with other players in making the perfect sushi rolls. You can win by making most maki rolls or collecting a full set of samishi. Sushi Go! is a unique and fun gift for couples or families.

LIGHTNING REACTION RELOADED
My in-laws have this game and so many fun memories because of it! There are 4 triggers with a button in the middle. Once you’ve pressed the button to start the round, you’ll see a red blinking light and hear suspenseful music. As soon as the light turns green, everyone pulls their trigger. The last person to pull their trigger gets a shock! Don’t worry, you can adjust the intensity from “tickle” to “shocker”. This is a great game for brave and adventurous families who love to have a good time.
Requires 3 AAA batteries (not included)
4 player ages 14+
BOSS MONSTER The creators of Boss Monster were inspired by classic video games (like Mario and Zelda)–but instead of playing the adventurer, you get to be the monstrous villain! Each player collects cards to create their own evil lair to imprison thepesky adventurers. You’ve got to make your dungeon as appealing as it is deadly; because the more adventurers you lure in and destroy, the higher your score! This is the perfect gift for your favorite nerd!
2-4 players ages 13+
MOUTH GUARD CHALLENGE
You may have seen this on your Facebook news feed, because theMouth Guard Challenge is hilarious to watch, film, and play! There are a few different versions of it, but the one we have at Porter’s is said to be more challenging than others. What you do is put in the mouth guard and say the prompted phrase (you’d be surprised at how little you can understand someone who can’t put their lips together!). The other players have to guess what you’re saying. Mouth Guard Challenge comes with over fifty challenges, revenge cards, mouth guards. You’ll definitely want to play this with your family and friends.
