Hosting a Christmas party is tough work. After the Eggnog is all gone and the Secret Santa gifts are passed out, you can’t bust out Monopoly to keep the party going for a bunch of adults. If you do, your guests are most likely going to get an “emergency call from the babysitter” and “have to leave ASAP”.
Instead, you should pony up $15-$30 and be prepared with a kick ass board board game for adults. I’m not talking about a raunchy sex-fueled round of Foreplay Football (more power to ya if that’s your thing), but games that are just edgy enough to keep everyone having fun. Here are our (somewhat NSFW) top picks: expand full story

Imagine if you could use your Guitar Hero instrument to shred — that is pretty much what the Jamstik lets you do, but with real strings and MIDI compatibility. 9to5Toys Specials has it now for $150 shipped.
You play this smart guitar with exactly the same technique as you would employ on an acoustic instrument, with a fingerboard for chords, and space to strum the strings below. By hooking up the Jamstik to your iOS device or Mac, you can convert every pluck into whatever sound you please, and edit the notes after you record your performance. The smart guitar itself is compact and durable, with volume controls on the side. It also has an infrared sensor, which allows you to visualize your hand movements on screen — a great tool if you’re learning to play. The internal battery lasts for eight hours of music making, and there are three Jamstik apps to download as a starting point.
You can grab the Jamstik at 40% off the regular price, with free shipping to the Continental US, plus a strap and two picks in the box.
