Default What is your favorite board game?

I have been playing a lot or Risk lately for some reason, and i actually have a good time playing it. Another I like is monopoly but I still have to say risk is number 1.

I wasn't really allowed to play board games when I was little cause I was a sore loser and an even worse winner. I just got too competitive, particularly playing against my brothers.

But... to answer your question, when I was younger, I really liked the board game "Sorry." I liked "Nightmare" too, that video board game.

Now, I will occasionally play Cranium. That one is not too bad.

Risk and Monopoly are the best games out there. Used to play Sorry! alot with the family and big games of Uno when I was younger. I try to get a game going of DVD Movie Triva with friends going, but they never play me because I always win.. losers.

Stock Ticker, I know it's mainly luck. But I'v never lost that game and I've played it 100's of times. It got to the point where no one played me anymore.

One of many who is too boring; thinks that there should be rules regarding grammar in custom user titles, and also makes moderators wonder if there is a charachter limit here. I mean come on- you would think that would be a limitation in the software

Monopoly is one of my favorites, as well as Trivial Pursuit.

Worst board game ever: The Farming Game. Created at the same time, and along the same lines of Monopoly, this game actually does make you feel like a farmer in the great depression.

I like a lot of the old stand-bys (Monopoly, Trivial Pursuit, Scrabble) but of the newer games out there Settlers of Katan is a ripping good time.

Risk, Monopoly, and Trivial Pursuit if I'm playing a mature crowd. Cranium is good fun for all ages!

Christmas we played a game, and my brother had to act out the movie 'Twister'... he went spinning around the living room, knocking shinguard over, generally making a mess, and we were all too busy laughing hysterically to actually guess. Good times.

not only am I shocked that someone listed Axis & Allies, but they listed my close runner-up as well

definately the two best games on the market, bar none!

Scrabble. Got addicted to online scrabble at games.com during exam week, so I failed History. Whatever, I kick so much ass in scrabble. Too many wordbuilder using cheaters online though.

I like Risk and Monoply, but they are so loooong. Scrabble and Sorry are awesome too. I used to have a ton as a kid, they're all still in my parent's attic I believe.


I was always good at Boggle on account of I'm a genius. :P


Pictionary is fun with a group of people, or even couples. A friend of mine had Cranium too, and that was quite fun as well. :tup:

In grade 12 Social we played it as a class... broke into groups to do so. I was on the Axis team, and did everything Hitler did, but without going crazy and attacking Russia.... we won.

Settlers of Catan is great, Carcazonne Hunters and Gatherers is pretty fun, too. As far as the classics, I like scrabble, chess, and go.
