Want to get the perfect gift for your TCG loving friend, board game geek or RPG playgroup? You’re at the right place! Our team at Magic Omens got together, and we created what we would say is the Ultimate Holiday Gift Guide for 2023.
Below you will find recommendations and info for some of the most popular new games and accessories that any tabletop gamer will enjoy!
Board Game Holiday Gift Guide 2023
Board games are getting more popular each year, so there is no better time to get a board game gift for one of your friends or family! These games will be both great for seasoned board game players and as an introduction to the board game hobby to beginners. Each one will be a great family activity or an addition to your regular board game meetups.
Are you looking for fun and quick games for any occasion? Look no further! Party games like these are perfect for that! The Codenames series of games has you split up into two teams and compete in finding all your tiles from 20 clue tiles on the table, but there is a catch. The person who knows which tiles are yours can only give you one word and one number as a clue. Try to guess as many connected images or words as you can, without missing! This game is a great icebreaker for mixed friend groups, a fun family game (especially the Pictures or Duet versions) or a battle of wits with your friends. The games are around 15 minutes long and can be played with 2 or more players, although we suggest not over 12.
MicroMacro: Crime City is a series of games reminiscent of the classic “Where’s Waldo?” illustrations. Each game comes with a huge map filled with characters, locations and events all depicted in cute but sharp detail. Your job as players is to read case cards and use the information there as well as the info on the map to connect the dots and deduce what has happened! Both this and MicroMacro: Crime City 4 Showdown include cases appropriate for all ages, so this can be the perfect gift for the little detective in your life. Work together to decipher the clues and solve some unforgettable mysteries!
7 Wonders: Duel is our favorite 2 player game recommendation! If you are looking for a game to play one-on-one with someone, this is it! The 2 players are competing in leading their civilization through the ages and building their Wonder of the World. An amazing, fun and fast-paced card game that will make any board game player fall in love in just a few minutes.

We will recommend you a few products from each game, like Pokémon, Yu-Gi-Oh!, and Magic: The Gathering, and help you find the gift that fits your needs for this holiday season.
