Board games

What a lost art huh? I remember back in the day everyone's closet was full of board games. They wife picked up 'Sorry' the other day for something to do. It was fun. I remember going over to friends houses on new years eating snacks and playing board games. Does anyone have any other recommendations for some good board games?

I love Life, I just bought my daughter the Life twists and turns game.... it's not as fun as the original but still a good time.

I also remember playing trouble as a kid, that was one of my favorites.

Battleship is fun.

The nephews got mousetrap from grandma.

Scrabble is good.

I had a period where I was researching the variant rules of monopoly

like there really is no jackpot in free-parking.  There is one called horse race, where under one circumstance, I think if two are more are in just visiting, you can gamble on who gets there first.

I despise Monopoly. Risk is a good time, although not much fun with only a couple players. We have Sorry, Life, Scrabble, and Yahtzee (not really a board game) that we play once in a while. I also have Risk, but with two people I don't know that it would be much fun, and I think the 1980's edition of trivial pursuit, but that has rarely gotten played, and again not that great with just two people. I also have an old stash of a lot of MTG cards. Again, not a board game, but my cousins used to be really big on it, so I ended up with quite a few cards and learning to play it.

Yes. Think I had that or a friend did.
Wait, didn't we have that? I just watched the video and it brought back lots of memories, I remember playing it a lot, but don't remember a friend having it.

So who here remembers Crossfire?


Well I was in Target today and they had a full reproduction for sale, one of my favorite board games of all time, I couldn't pass it up, you just can't find it anymore.

Man I almost bought these same ones yesterday. I think board games are great for kids and adults. But with all the advancements of technology they are becoming forgotten. But there is a whole new lineup of adult games out there to play, but you need friends to play with. :(
