Well-Played: 5 Luxury Board Games That Double as Home Decor - Play

In the market for coffee table books for decor? Instead, you can consider one of these designer-made games.

Hosting a game night is always a great idea to bond with friends and exercise your competitive spirit. Although games from traditional hobby stores do just fine, luxury houses are crafting their versions of well-known sets. 

Instead of plastic and paper, brands like Prada and Tiffany & Co. use leather and 18k gold materials (also used in their fashion items). Needless to say, the price tags on designer-made games are far from off-the-rack ones.
