If you are looking for Fourth of July gifts for someone who is as obsessed with board games as I am (literally, you can wake me up in the middle of the night for a good old board game, especially Ticket to Ride!), then I’ve got two amazing options for you.

The first one (and my favorite one) is Ticket to Ride. A game in which you have to build railway tracks across the US map to gain the most points. Trust me, the game is a lot more fun than I make it sound with this awful explanation.

The second game is called Trekking The National Parks, it includes all the US national parks and the aim is to score the most points by visiting as many parks as possible.
