Remember playing Clue or Operation as a kid? Or were you a fan of Mystery Date or Twister? Even with the rise of video games in the past few decades, these classics still remain popular today and help make up a $1 billion-a-year industry. "It’s hard to replace the face-to-face quality time you get with these games," says Tim Walsh, inventor of the game Blurt! and author of Timeless Toys. "They’re something you can do with the whole family — and they’re affordable."
