1. Dinkee Linkee
Team up with your pop-culture obsessed tween or history-buff hubby, and get ready to compete in a new type of trivia with Dinkee Linkee. This version ups the ante: Players read off four prompts and have to spot the link between all the answers before the other team shouts it out.  Ages 8 and up, $20.

2. Suspicion
What a dastardly idea! Each player in Suspicion is a world-class jewel thief pocketing precious gems during a masquerade party at the estate of art-collector Baron Whitetooth. Your mission: Unmask the other crooks before they catch you!  Ages 10 and up, $20.

3. Anaxi
The word game Anaxi requires serious creativity. Players race to write down things that share the qualities of at least two out of three adjectives. “There were lots of laughs over what we came up with,” one mom said. 
Ages 8 and up, $22.

4. Monopoly Ultimate Banking
Wheelers and dealers will love the upgrades to this Monopoly classic: A battery-powered banking unit scans property and credit cards, transfers money, and keeps track of your wealth. Because who carries cash anymore?  Ages 8 and up, $25.

5. Thing Two and Thing One Whirly Fun!
Dr. Seuss’s troublemaking pals create a mess as they spin through the 3-D house. Players in Whirly Fun! hurry to clean it up as Mother gets close to the front door. “My son begged to play the game over and over!” our tester told us.  Ages 4 and up, $10. ■
