What's your favorite Board Game?
#1
I see that no one posts in here but I'm gonna start the thread any way. I've recently got back into playing board games (finding an excuse to drink can do that). I gotta say my favorite board game of all time is...

...RISK! Nothing's better than world domination!

Apples to Apples is a good party game. Imaginiff? and Cranium are good as well.

Original release or one of the watered down pop culture decade versions?

I'm a Scrabble enthusiast.

Original release.

Cowards and mental midgets, every last one of 'em.

I'll play! I'm an ace at TP.

However, no one will play the Book Lover's Edition with me. At all.

I thought the Baby Boomer edition of TP would get easier when I got older but I still have little to no idea what they're talking about in those questions.

Do you think it is a good idea to challenge a librarian in that particular field?

Five bucks a wedge. Let's go.

Feudal is a damn good game, just think chess but being able to move every piece in a move. You even have archers! how cool is that!

I will play Trivial Pursuit all day long, especially if monies are involved.

The best board game, though, is Puerto Rico.

I can never find any one to play Puerto Rico with. Settlers of Catan and Carcasonne are available via XBL though so I'm able to play with virtual peoples.

I've got nine years working for Barnes & Noble if that helps.

Fair enough. I guess.

i played monopoly at the weekend for the first time in YEARS and fucking dominated it - i'm seriously thinking of going pro.

If anyone wants some 'ply action bring it and i'll boardwalk on you baltic avenue style.

Oh and I would be in for the TP posturing but you'd be playing the american version - so i'd be hopeless at guessing the state bird of arkansas or whatever. But i will offer my question-master skills, my expert diction and english accent will lend some gravitas to the contest.

Oh and Risk for sure - best game ever...

It's been twenty years, but I think I'll go with Crossbows and Catapults.

I hate Trivial Pursuit and Monopoly. Never saw the appeal. There's no real strategy. You either know the question or you don't. You either land on a particular property or you don't. Boring.

My friends and I are big fans of all three games (although Puerto Rico is our favorite). We're currently on a Bohnanza kick. It's great if you like to negotiate/debate/argue, which my friends who are lawyers love to do over every play.

If they somehow manage to get Puerto Rico on XBL, they'll find my dessicated corpse on the couch gripping a game controller.

No, see, this isn't hustling. If I planned to throw a game or two before systematically taking all of your money in a glorious orgy of useless knowledge, teeny plastic wedges, and tears (note: your tears), that would be hustling. This is talking trash.

Your mom.

Yeah, well, where did you get your suit? At the toilet store?

My friends and I are all anxiously awaiting that day as well. As we get older, getting everybody into the same room at the same time to play a board game is like organizing a Beatles reunion. On XBox Live, we'd only need a couple of us at a time.

I love Power Grid. It's not a title that promises great excitement, but it's an incredibly well-designed game.

Whatever well-meaning aunt or uncle bought me this:



It was their fault I didn't learn chess until I was an adult. What a dopey-ass game.

Oh yeah, well the jerk store called and they just ran out of you!

And as for board games. I love LIFE. Love that little wheel.

What the hell is with the Westworld-esque look of that board game cover? Ploy? What bs.

Perhaps but the game still looks like bullshit and some kind of weird ripoff of Chinese Checkers.

And this is going to sound weird. But I have never actually played Risk. Now how about that.
Reply
#32
Yeah, as I said I blame it for helping my retardation.

I blame my friend for my not playing Risk. He'd throw a fit by move 3 that the game was already decided and would loudly bitch that there was no way for him to win so we shouldn't keep playing. This was college.
