I don't know if you count "pictionary" a board game, but it's a good game for students to use their vocabulary. You can create your word list from the lessons you gave.

Michael, try mes-english.com. They've got all kind of different worksheets, board games, dice etc

You pick a range of vocabulary (e.g. daily activities) or use your own list of words and create your own board game. you can chose to have it with only pictures, pic + word etc

Another game like Pictionary is charades. Students can't talk, they use movements and gestures to express english word and other students guess. Fun!

What about Twister? That could be a fun and silly game to use. It can get students moving and make them laugh!
