5 Awesome Board and Casino Games for the Xbox 360

Trivial Pursuit

Xbox 360 fans will be in mourning following the shock announcement by Microsoft that production of the Xbox 360 console is ceasing. The company will be selling all remaining consoles left on the shelves, but once they are gone, that’s it folks.

This is tremendously sad news, but if you have an Xbox, don’t worry because there still hundreds of awesome games out there to purchase digitally through Xbox Live or from online stores such as Amazon. So if you, like millions of other people, love the Xbox 360 to bits, here are five great board and casino games you have to try.

Hasbro Family Game Night 4: The Game Show Edition

The Hasbro family game night game for Xbox 360 is perfect for families with kids. The game is designed to replicate the excitement of a TV game show: your living room is the board and you are the controller. There are lots of fun games to choose from: bowling, Sorry! Sliders, Bop-It Boptogon, Yahtzee! and Scrabble Flash. Players can win Monopoly Crazy cash with each game. Use your Xbox 360 Kinect to take player participation to the next level.

Monopoly Streets

Monopoly is the best known board game in the world. Millions of people have a monopoly game in their cupboard and it tends to be the game of choice for families at Christmas and bank holiday weekends. The great thing about the Xbox 360 Monopoly Streets game is that it is fully interactive. You can watch the Monopoly city grow as you buy streets and build houses and hotels. There are lots of fun features, including a ‘city tour’ and a mini auctioneer game.

Trivial Pursuit

Trivial Pursuit is a fantastic general knowledge game the whole family can try. Playing Trivial Pursuit on the Xbox 360 is even more fun, as your console will bring the game to life with lots of different customisation options to choose from. Challenge your friends and track your best performing categories. It’s the perfect game for ultra-competitive people.

Grand Theft Auto V

Grand Theft Auto V is one of the most popular RPG ever to be released. And although you might not look at the game and put it in the same category as the others on this list, one of the latest DLC packs set to be revealed is a Casino update.  Fans of slots (we recommend reading this excellent slot guide), blackjack and poker will love trying their hand at a game or two, though be warned; just like in the real world, you can lose all of your GTA money if you lose.  This update has been expected for a little over 2 years now and fans of the series are anxious for its release.

Battle Vs Chess

Battle vs Chess is a super cool game board environment for Xbox 360. Chess is a fantastic strategy game that attracts players of all ages and abilities. The Battle vs Chess game for Xbox combines all the best elements of a classic game of chess with super graphics and special effects and combat elements. If you select the optional ‘action mode’ you can even beat up your opponents on the battle field!

You don’t need to throw your old Xbox 360 console away just yet. Try some of the above games and remind yourself why you love it so much.
