Trivial Pursuit from the 1950's at every table....

That must have been pretty amazing, considering the game was invented in 1979 and first released commercially in 1982! ;D

My family enjoys Cranium, Pictionary, Scrabble, Ultimate Outburst, Word Thief, and Say When.


This Christmas, Penelope and her fiance got me Awkward Family Photos. It's the best pictures from the website arranged on a board, and then you answer questions about the pictures (what happened right before this photo was taken, what should the title be, what would make this photo more awkward) and the judge gets to decide the best answer (much like Apples to Apples). It was a blast. I highly recommend!

Yes, I second this one.  Very entertaining game.

Can't believe no one's mentioned the king of board games: Scrabble!

I'm equally shocked that no one has mentioned two of the great thinking games of the past century - Candyland and Chutes & Ladders.

Did anyone mention Backgammon? I've probably played that more than any other board game.

Monopoly is pretty good, though I agree it brings out the worst in people.

Aaaaand that's why Monopoly is my favorite board game.

When I was little, my dad used to play this with me.  Definitely for younger kids, but I loved it!

If we're going to include games for kiddies... don't suppose any of you guys ever heard of an oldie from the early '90s titled It From The Pit?

Clue

Yahtzee any-one?
On the subject of board- and parlor-games, when we play with our children:  some of my fondest child-hood memories are playing cards with my father; Go Fish, Crazy 8's, then Rummy.  Rather than he condescending to child's play, I remember those occasions as elevating me to ' grown-up pursuits', as those games seemed to me at the time.

Is it just me, or does Monopoly have an odd tendency to bring out the worst in people?  Nearly every time I've played, people either walk away with bad feelings or the board goes airborne an hour to ninety minutes in.

Sorry for the commie commentary at video end.....I just liked the pastors speech...although I certainly eschew naked capitalism.

We like apples to apples and scrabble games
