Board Games - What's Your Favorite?
« on: May 31, 2013, 09:51:08 pm »
I love to play board games with the family - especially when we're with our grandchildren ages 16 and 12.  One of my favorites is Balderdash.  It can get very hilarious.  What is the one that you enjoy the most?  Always on the lookout for something new for the family to enjoy!  :)

I'll have to check that one out!  Another one that's REALLY fun is Apples to Apples.  Always can count on lots of laughter.
My husband doesn't like board or card games but even he can get into that one - especially with the kids.
They also have a kids version with references they'll more readily get.

And Monopoly is the classic of classics.  So much so that phrases from it have made their way into our vernacular - "get out of jail free".   :)

Monopoly is my favorite.  We used to play that all the time when my kids were young.  Haven't played that in years, think I have to go find it and pull it out to play again.

My favorite is also a classic; Clue. Our family used to play this a lot when I was growing up. Both my mother and myself loved mysteries (we'd watch shows like Murder She Wrote together) so it was always fun to play the detective. We actually got so good at it that we were recording what each person was guessing as well as who showed what card, since that would also give some clues... Usually people would use 1 or 2 items that they already knew (either as being involved with the murder, or something they had in their hand) so as to work out the 3rd piece of the puzzle. So if a person kept asking with the same item all the time, it was a good guess that the item was either in their hand or they already deduced it was a part of the murder. Thus you might even be able to determine what card was shown even if you were not the one asking the question (or maybe figure out an item involved with a murder if no one showed any cards). We also employed other strategies as well... Once I started off the game with a guess for which I had all 3 clues in my hand; since I had all of those clues, everyone passed revealing any cards. This got everyone thinking that one or more of those items were actually involved in the murder. So I actually got my Dad to lose when he made an accusation that involved one of those clues!

It's been so long since I played a board game I had to read everybody's answer, it's not monopoly, but I guess it would be Clue, "Ms. Scarlet in the library with the lead pipe..."
