Default Favorite Board Games

I'm a big fan of board games, but don't get to play them as often as I'd like anymore due to kids. Seems like very few people play anymore..

Here are some that I like...

Acquire - a hotel game where you build chains and can buy stock in other player's chains

Settlers of Catan - a resource game where you build cities, roads and armys

Civilization - a very popular computer series that started as a board game - all about advancing your civilization up the technology tree

Diplomacy - the name kinda says everything

Axis and Allies - WW2 strategy game

Too many railroad games to mention

Anyone play these anymore? Any others to add?

I'm currently playing a lot of Candyland and Hi Ho Cherry-O!

My personal favorites are any of the Trivial Pursuit games or games of that nature. I suck at strategy games.

I like a good game of Rail Baron while enjoying a few good brews and I used to love a little known game called Ninny Chess!

Axis and Allies, Trivial Pursuit, Life, Sorry, and Trouble. Yahtzee is ok. Operation is fun too but I'm sure they've changed it since I last played.

Me, my wife, and some other friends have come up with a favorite that we've played a few hundred times: drinking Yahtzee (aka Shotzy Yahtzee).

It starts out with one house rule: if you get a Yahtzee, you take a Shotzy. Each round, the winner gets to make a new rule. Some favorites are:

Take a shot if you miss your upper bonus
Take a shot if you win
Take a shot if you drop a dice off the table
Take a shot if you swear
Take a shot if you say "drink"
Take a drink if you use someone's real first name
Take a shot if you lose


Etc, etc.

I actually bought that a few years ago. It's the GREATEST drinking game ever!!

One drink per $100. If you succeed, you give em out and if you fail, you drink!

Very fun!!

Is Scrabble considered a board game? My wife kicks my butt at Scrabble and Chess. Aside from those we also play LEGO Builders--a board game where you race to build some little car, airplane, boat etc.

Did anyone here play Passout as a teen/ young/ older adult? We used to play it in my brief career as a student. No smoking until you get a " light up" card. Pink elephant cards with tongue twisters on them every time you pass go. Lots of drinking penalties. You start off drinking hard, and end up taking baby sips and hoping you can keep it down.

Come to think of it, it sounds like alcohol poisoning...

Man I grew up playing board games. With six of us kids running around in the days before PS2 and the like, that's all there was. My favorites then: Monopoly, Scrabble, Risk, Clue, Sorry!, Battleship, Backgammon. We also played a lot of Cribbage, but that's not necessarily a board game.

My favorites now: Trivial Pursuit, SceneIt, Backgammon, Mindtrap. I also find myself playing a bit of chess, but I don't really like it- I play because my son loves it. I still play a lot of Cribbage, too.
