This year marks the 100th anniversary of the ratification of the 19th Amendment, which gave women the right to vote in the United States. It was a victory that took decades of work and the perseverance of countless women and men to make happen. And now, you can commemorate those historic individuals and with a 500-piece Votes for Women puzzle, which is available on UncommonGoods for $22.

The puzzle features many prominent historical figures like Elizabeth Cady Stanton, who never got to vote in her lifetime but played a key role in the suffrage movement; Sojourner Truth, an escaped slave who fought fiercely for women’s rights; Frederick Douglass, a known supporter of women’s rights activists; and Susan B. Anthony, who also didn’t live long enough to cast a vote herself, but helped lay the groundwork for the amendment. Measuring 23 inches in diameter when complete, this illustrated puzzle also comes with a poster-sized pamphlet that includes more information about the historic event and the people involved.

Dominate Game Night With Godzilla-Themed Monopoly and Jenga

Competitive board games have a tendency to bring out players' monstrous sides, and later this year, you'll be able to embrace those destructive impulses with Jenga and Monopoly games inspired by Godzilla.

Both products featuring Japan's iconic mutant menace are a collaboration between games publisher USAopoly (also known as The Op) and entertainment company Toho International, CBR.com reports. The first one, dubbed Monopoly: Godzilla, is billed as a "city-terrorizing twist on the classic board game." The properties available for conquering include Monster Island, Goro’s Workshop, and Kitakami Lake. Instead of the classic game pieces, players use tokens of monsters like Mothra, Rodan, and Godzilla to dominate the board.

The second game pairs so perfectly with Godzilla that it may rival the classic version. In Jenga: Godzilla Extreme Edition, the block tower resembles a skyscraper taken from downtown Tokyo, and it comes with a cardboard cutout of Godzilla unleashing a beam of atomic breath. With every role of the die, Godzilla moves along the "approach track," increasing the number of blocks removed each turn and hastening the building's destruction.

Monopoly: Godzilla will sell for $40, and Jenga: Godzilla Extreme Edition will cost $20. You can find them in select stores when they debut in the spring.

For a seemingly simple show, Friends has continued to entertain fans around the world for more than 25 years. The ’90s sitcom allowed viewers to follow the lives of six tight-knit friends and—most importantly—quote many hilarious lines and references. Now, you can mix and match some of the show's best moments with The One With All the Cards game, which looks and plays a lot like Cards Against Humanity. You can find it on Amazon for $30.

While the game isn’t a Cards Against Humanity expansion pack, it’s quite similar. There’s a set of black question cards containing classic lines like “WHAT ARE YOU DOING TO MY SISTER?” to which players respond with white cards that feature answers like, “Feeling my bicep, and maybe more.”

When you’ve established who is the best at Friends quotes, you can see who the real superfan is with The One With All the Questions. This trivia game features more than 300 quiz questions and you can find it on Amazon for $33.
