How flexible are you? To find out, try playing Twister. You need a special mat for this game. The mat has red, blue, yellow, and green circles. You put your hands and feet on the circles, and things get crazy fast!

Soon, your body will be twisted up, and you’ll probably start laughing. Playing Twister is much more fun than a regular board game. This year is Twister’s fiftieth anniversary, so it’s a great time to try the game for yourself.

I like to play this game but don’t know who with. Every one is so stiff and with back pain problem. Apples to apples I think is one widely played. The board games should be always updated otherwise they’re easily and speedily get boring to play.
Twister by miracle is still more or less popular because it’s fun to play.
