Games and activities

Hi,
Could you tell me why a board game like "Monopoly" or "Clue" might not be appropriate for a group of language learners. How could you adapt them to be appropriate?
And, why traditional party games like "Charades" or "20 Questions" would be good games to use in the EFL/ESL classroom. What would be the specific language point students would be working on with these games?
I really apreciate any help...........

Are you asking us to answer your TEFL course questions for you, by any chance?

No, I'm not. But I'm not familiar with the last two games. I believe that any board game that involves some conversation is good for language learners in terms of vocabulary and fluency practice (but i could be wrong..).
