Your input please!

O.k. all you lurkers and non-lurkers alike. Tis the season for gifting and I am in a bit of a bind. I need your input in a matter of crucial and vital importance.

What was/is your favorite board game to play?

Please post your answer(s). I don't care if you post as anonymous. I just need data and lots of it. And don't pretend that you don't read this. Becuase I know you do.

scrabble and boggle and scattegories...except I think only 1 of those actually has a board involved so the others I guess aren't technically board games. I used to love playing Clue. Does that help?

If there is a group involved nothing beats Cranium - lots of laughs guaranteed. This is kinda' sad, but my sisters have a game called Mall Madness that I play everytime I'm home! I also like Dominoes & Phase 10 (more card games...) Good luck.

i double the suggestions made by yola - plus with scrabble and boggle you have the added benefit of learning while you play. I love clue and target has cool board games in neat boxes (they are wooden and look like books). I got the Clue version for my nephew but they also have Scrabble and Monopoly, Risk, and Stratego (if you like never-ending games).

also - Settlers of Catan. Love it. It's longer, but not too long and it requires strategy, but not so intense that an 8 year old couldn't play.

and though it technically doesn't have a board, catch phrase is awesome, especially in a group setting.

oh! and trivial pursuit! and pictionary! again, better in a group setting.

and finally, Scene it. the DVD board game - they now have so many versions you can satisfy any age or personality. I got my nephew the Nick Toons version and I got the regular movie version.

hope that helps. can you tell i really love board games? haha. who are you buying for?

i forgot, there's also a game called Imagine Iff. it's awesome and very fun to play - if you want something new and fun with a group, that is the game for you. :)

I play a newer game called Ticket to Ride and I love it. It's good for a smaller group (I think it has a nex of 6 players). It's a strategy game where no one else knows what you're trying to do until the very end, which adds a welcome uncertainty to the game. I like it because you don't have to lose hope of ever winning by the middle of the game, like in some other strategy games (like Settlers of Catan).

Clue and Balderdash were my favorites as a kid. Metro is a fun game miguel introduced me to. Have yet to play Settlers of Catan because there are never more than 2 of us to play. Oh, and then there was Hungry, Hungry Hippos that got turned into trying to get the marbles to fly as far as we could ...
