“We like to play the card game called Apples to Apples …It always spurs some kind of debate, or somebody gives really random, hilarious answers.”

Talisman! I have played this board game since the early eighties.

Wonderful!! So does my family! We have gained a couple of expansions over the years but the game is still the best :)

Won the game and all expansions at a Game Convention in LA eons ago. I had never played before the evening prior to the open tournament. Have loved Talisman since!

The usual; Scrabble,Trivial pursuit,Sorry, and Monopoly. We used to have a game of Monopoly every weekend until it got out of hand and lasted the entire weekend.

These are games? What's wrong with Monopoly and Risk? At least I've heard of those.

I'm old school, we just twiddle our thumbs and whittle. Must admit though, the kids whine about it at times.

Settlers of Catan. My 11 year old rocks it.

Risk and Scrabble. World domination, and word play. Doesn't get any better than that.

Apples to game ever. Love it! We play Settlers of Catan sometimes too.

Scattergories, trivial pursuit, those 2 are are our fav board games but typically we are hard core card players of the likes of Pitch, Texas Hold Em, and a game my husband calls 'Shadoobie on your neighbor' It may have a more appropriate name but this is what his family calls it! Oh and I almost forgot one of our absolute FAVS Phase 10! We can play that one for HOURS!

We do prefer water boarding with various different players and a wide range of man made plastic devices including but not limited to self adhesive applications.

I'm an ex-carpenter, so my favorite board games are most anything that involve, well, ... boards. In my dodderage, I tend to favor board games that result in the creation of bird houses and feeders, although an occasional bookshelf or other doo-dad is also fun. Personally, I do not favor board games with my family. As the proud owner of a wife and daughter, I do not favor mixing my kind of board games with my ladies and my power tools.

More power................wooof, woooof, woooof

I can HIGHLY suggest a co-op board game called Forbidden Island. We play it at work, and I will be buying it as a Christmas present for the family. Excellent game. Other than that, LotR Risk and Apples to Apples are popular family games with us.
