Default Board Games

Anyone else play them? I like Mancala and Monopoly. I have a old version of Monopoly but will be upgrading soon.

We play dominos when the kids come over sometimes. Haven't played a board game in years.

I play dominoes as well, but I get tired of it quickly.

Pick up some board games, they are a blast. My wife and I play them a lot, even without the kids. We played Sorry last night.

Good times!

Used to play Stock Ticker, great game but they left out brokers, bankers and agents. I guess if they had put them in there would be no winners.

Monopoly and Life are close to real life. You either become super rich or you fall off the edge of the world or the board anyway.

I miss them, grew up with them.
Can't find people to play Scrabble anymore, my favorite. The online versions just can't compete.
Play cards (Spades) online when I feel like getting cussed at.
I drag Apples to Apples to family gatherings just in case people want to have a few laughs without much time investment or mental strain. It gets pretty good reception even for the skeptics.
It seems the trivia games just serve to humiliate people.
Chess... *sigh*

My wife likes to break out Yahtzee when she wants my undivided attention.

Do you have any pics? I've been wanting to do something like that for some time.

I love Yahtzee. I didn't play it as a kid so it was new to me as of a year ago.
