Mattel has announced the release of 'Pictionary Vs. AI', a spin on the classic board game that uses AI to take the guesswork out of the game. Like the original, players take a card and draw what they've selected before scanning a QR code on their smartphones, activating an AI that attempts to guess the drawing.

Mattel's global head of games hopes that the refreshed gameplay will update the family classic for a modern audience, changing family game night for the better (or the worse). I'm not sure this will make it into our list of the best board games.
