For those that qualify as both history nerds and gaming geeks, Guillotine is a perfect mix of both. I first fell in love with this game in middle school and still play it now as an adult. Easy to learn, this irreverent game brings out my rarely seen competitive side as every player strives to collect the most powerful noble heads during Robespierre's bloody Reign of Terror during the French Revolution. Recommended pairings include champagne, cake, and the soundtrack to Les Mis.
