Board games definitely aren't boring. Whether you want to revisit a classic or get adventurous with a new game, our stars have your back. A few of our HGTV favorites have been playing a LOT more board games than normal lately. Here, we have some of their top picks for getting the family around the table for a night of friendly competition.

Jonathan Scott and Zooey Deschanel are at the top of the list when it comes to getting game recommendations due to their recent live stream of epic gameplay. It turns out, Jonathan has a whole cache of classic games that he and Zooey could play. Just look at this picture he sent us for proof!

"Brett and I have been playing Yahtzee with our friends over video chat. It's easy to play because all you need are dice and the scorecard. And when we just need a quiet night, Brett and I have done a few puzzles."

"Right now we love playing Monopoly! My grandma used to play with me for hours growing up so it’s such a nice memory. And naturally I love teaching Taylor about real estate."

"I would say we love the game Table Topics: Family Edition. We actually play this at dinner almost every night around the table. The kids love taking turns asking and answering these sometimes funny or silly and often thought-provoking questions."

Drew mentioned that he and Linda have loved playing Codenames and Rummicube ... but it looks like they have even more fun up their sleeves!

Nicole said that she and her four-year-old son enjoy playing a TON of Go Fish.
