Default Favorite Board Game

OK ~ this is an easy thread ~ With fire evacuees here the kids are looking through all the board games we have trying to decide which ones to play ~ SO ~ I ask you what is your favorite board game?

Mine, growing up was Monopoly....now I think it is Loaded Questions or Catch Phrase. How about you?

SCATTERGORIES. Scene It is nice too, if you are movie buffs.

I hate Monopoly. It reveals such a scary, mean, cutthroat side of people. I prefer not to see that side of my friends and family, ever.

Hate, hate, hate it.

I liked Monopoly as a kid, Life, Clue heck I just like games

I like Cranium now and a lot of the CheapA$$ games (yes that is a brand name)- they are really funny.

Mostly I just play cards...

its a game called pass the pigs. Two plastic pigs that you "roll" and they have dots on different sides...depending on how they land...that's the points you get. you play to a set number (ie 100) and the first person there wins. Weird silly corny game that's great as a kid...and even as a big kid that's a bit drunk LOL

With three kids, we have just about every game out there! It's insane how many we have, they take up most of a wall in the kitchen
Scrabble would be one of my favorites

My favourite 2 are Trivial Pursuit and Balderdash.

I get very competitive at Trivial Pursuit.

Balderdash is hysterical especially when you have a bunch of people.

Boggle is a favorite. Scrabble and Upwords are two more. Can you tell that I like word games? I used to love Monopoly, but no one in the family will play with me any more.

Balderdash and Pictionary. Both because the fun comes not so much from trying to win but from laughing so hard you can hardly breathe or see straight.

I love Monopoly!

Life was fun, and so was Sorry.

I haven't played any board games in a long, long time, but I loved them so much as a kid. I'm missing them now.

I love board games!!

Oh, I like Monopoly, Pictionary, Trivial Pursuit, Scrabble, Upwords, Yatzee, Clue, Chinese Checkers and on those cold, snowy days growing up in Buffalo area: Uno (not a board game, but it was an "I'm bored" game that turned into 4 hour tournament...) I still love to play Uno!!

Ah, those were the days!!
