Trivial Pursuit. The best game ever. :)

SORRY, comparing APPLES TO APPLES, BATTLESHIP has a MONOPLY!

vote-for10vote-against

Probably Carcassonne. But sometimes I enjoy the old standbys, like Clue or Trivial Pursuit.

I used to play the crap out of Hero Quest!

Chess, and in the same vein but less brain-straining, Stratego.

vote-for7vote-against

Ticket to Ride Europe, Axis and Allies, Catan, and Puerto Rico

vote-for6vote-against

Advanced Civilization by Avalon Hill. Followed by Settlers of Catan in all its many forms, and by crayon rail games such as Iron Dragon, Empire Builder and Eurorails. We actually play Catan and crayon rails quite often, while the 8 player 12 hour commitment that is Advanced Civ is relegated to the Friday after Thanksgiving once a year.

Game with a board is probably Scrabble. Other favorites are Mastermind, Rummikub and Uno.

vote-for10vote-against

Carcassonne. Or Dominion, if that counts.

vote-for7vote-against

Carcassonne (with 2 expansions - "Inns & Cathedrals" and "Traders & Builders")

Oh, and I've been on a Dominion kick lately.

My www.BrettSpielWelt.de username is JerseyFrank, if you want to play a game sometime.

I think Settlers of Catan is still my favorite. But I do enjoy a lot of other board games and cards games. Carcassonne, Ticket to Ride are some other favorite board games. For card games I like Gloom and Munchkin. I'm hoping to give Killer Bunnies a try sometime soon.

I loved Axis and Allies as a kid/ teenager.

No one ever wanted to play it though :(

I'm rather a fan of Parcheesi. Always had to play with my Grandpa, who is incredibly ruthless with a take no prisoners policy. Expect to go home no less than 10 times. :D

I love Apples to Apples and also pay Sorry and Life sometimes.

Can anyone suggest a good 2 player board game Please.
I know of Battle Ship but what else???

vote-for8vote-against

Settlers of Catan (need seafarers expansion to make it really good).

Fact or Crap is fun too.

vote-for4vote-against

All time favorite is Monopoly, but lately I've been playing Backgammon, Nackgammon, Tavla, Old English and Narde. Same board, same pieces, different rules for each.

vote-for3vote-against

Cranium = like 4 games in one

vote-for5vote-against

@gt0163c: Have you tried Fluxx? It's a brilliant card game design, players can be dealt in or out mid-hand with no impact on the game. We play it while we are waiting for all the players to arrive for the regular game. Zombie Fluxx is by far our favorite.

Good prices on Amazon, I paid $20 a deck for Fluxx, Zombie Fluxx and Pirate Fluxx, and have more than gotten my money's worth out of them. There's also Monty Python Fluxx, Stoner Fluxx, Star Fluxx, Family Fluxx, Martian Fluxx and Eco Fluxx.Kinda like Munchkin, there's a Fluxx for every special interest group.

My all-time favorite would have to be Fireball Island. Anyone else remember that old classic? Really wish I could get a copy of my own, but it's nearly impossible to find a complete copy for less than 100 bucks =/

Currently one of my favorites is Small World. You take control of a fantasy race (elves, ratmen, ogres, etc) and start conquering and holding as much of the board as you can, but there is a different board for each number of players, so that it is always too small for every person to control enough needed territory. A blast for any number of players!

Arkham Horror!!!

settlers of catan is fun too if you dont have a ton of time

vote-for7vote-against

Has anyone else played Dark Tower? My favorite is Settlers of Catan also.

vote-for4vote-against

I like Cranium because you get 4 different categories. Makes it fun because you get a variety!

vote-for4vote-against

Ticket to Ride, Pandemic, and (on the game console) a fun japanese game called "Board Game Top Shop" that's a more fun version of Monopoly.

vote-for6vote-against

@okham: I'm a Trivial Pursuit fan, too. My friends quit playing with me because I won every game (I probably just jinxed myself). I might not be good at a lot of things, but I am a fount of useless information! (What was the name of Sir Isaac Newton's dog?)

vote-for6vote-against

Monopoly. And I'm the car.

vote-for4vote-against

Backgammon, Mexican Train, Bones for the non traditional "Board" games. For a game with a board, it would have to be the original 1955 version of "careers." But I like most board games.

vote-for6vote-against

7 wonders is awesome! I also like dominion and carcassonne.

vote-for4vote-against

@shadowblue42: Yes to Arkham Horror!! And Settlers of Catan!!

Game night, my place??

(Also, I love almost all of the games mentioned, but these two are my favorite games right now, plus Dominion)

vote-for4vote-against

Trivial Pursuit, Monopoly.

vote-for3vote-against

@moondrake: I have played Fluxx and I do enjoy it. You're right that it's a good warm-up game. I also like Guillotine as a warm-up.

One thing I have found with Fluxx is that it's not a great game for games newbies (people who have only played Monopoly, Life, spades, hearts, etc). It's just a little too out there for a lot of people and it can turn them off to trying other games.

@tiamat114: I think I'd like your grandfather.
Board games - Parcheesi, Sorry, Trivia Pursuit
Card games - Five Crowns, Euchre, Hearts

@7carpileup: YESSS, Dark Tower was great! I still have two working sets, although the boxes disintegrated years ago.

vote-for3vote-against

Also I highly recommend the card game Scum (aka President/A$$hole). Lots of fun.

@teenracer6: Agreed. I always used to get the doctor, and MONEY was MAKING IT RAINNNNNNNNNNN! lol

vote-for3vote-against

Rummikub, Blokus, Cranium, Wits & Wagers, and Balderdash! All but Balderdash can be played with children as young as 6 or 7, and they are still a ton of fun... Beware Rummikub is addicting!

Does anyone remember Uncle Wiggley? It was like an awesome, more disturbing, version of Candy Land :)

vote-for5vote-against

@dmaz: My grandkids have finally outgrown Uncle Wiggley. Still have the game from my kids back in the '70s. "The old crow calls, caw, caw, caw, now a red card you must draw." Strange what sticks in your head.

Homer: You sunk my Scrabble-ship!

I like the more esoteric games. As far as board games, Kill Doctor Lucky (a sort of demented Clue). As far as card games, the list is bigger: Munchkin, in its various forms (a tongue in cheek homage to RPGs), Lord of the Fries and Give Me the Brain ("Look! A monkey!") and Quiddler (rummy scrabble, sort of).

Anybody here have the Mad Magazine Board Game? I used to LOVE that one.

vote-for3vote-against

@erinaine: Yep! You can find them on Amazon too. I bought one for my nephew for Christmas 2011. Just be sure to read about the condition of the game since it's so old.
