My mom had this awesome "Barbie" game from the 1960's and you play for allowance and job money, earning enough to finally buy a dress, catch a date, join a school club, and go to the dance, playing to become the homecoming queen by finishing first.

NOBODY actually ever plays Mousetrap. We only played with the stuff, too. My kids got it for xmas one year...they played with the stuff. I don't even know the rules. Amazing how long that game has been corrupted by kids and is still on the market.

Chess and Risk. I took Risk to South East Asia with a marked World map, instead of the board, in '73. Taught Chess to K-6 in an after school program for 2 years. (employed by Academic Chess)

Yahtzee, Scrabble, Sequence and monopoly are hits. For card games...Texas Hold'em Poker and this odd card game from England my extended family can't play enough of called Royalty. I had to get a replacement set online. Does any one else play this game? We love it.

Dungeons and Dragons. Basement Boy got me into it. We chase each other around the basement. I like to dress like a knight from days of yore, and Basement Boy plays a damsel in distress. Led Zepplin liked stuff like that. Mine's a tale that can't be told, my freedom I hold dear How years ago in days of old when magic filled the air 'twas in the darkest depths of Mordor, mm-I met a girl so fair but Gollum and the evil one crept up and slipped away with her

What the hell does that have to do with ramblin' on, anyway?

Currently a toss up between two cool games. Last Night on Earth: The Zombie Game, a cool game pitting heroes against zombies and Khet, this really cool game using lasers. The ultimate would be if I could create a mash-up game of both.

Right now my favorite game is BFBC2, but I am looking forward to April 19th when Portal2 drops. The first one was awesome but to short. P2 is supposed to be 2.5 times longer and also have a co-op campaign that is 2 times longer then the original.

I know it's supposed to be board games, but as Pywacket stated, this was done not long ago and I feel it's time for the more digitally inclined to be represented :)

My favorite 'board' game is to visit the lumberyard, pick out some nice boards, then create something with my own hands that might be passed down for generations of future Dapples.

First! . . . No, wait. That's a silly internet game played by esquire wannabee's . . .

Didn't they just ask this about 2 months ago? And we got into a discussion of some favorite non-board games (such as Milles Bournes)?

Isn't it time to ask something different? Such as, What is your favorite non-board game? Or card game?

Sigh... Okay. Board game it is.

Probably a tie between Parcheesi and Trivial Pursuit (favorite categories for original: green and brown).

Matt made me laugh because when I was a kid we did the exact same thing with Mouse Trap! Maybe nobody actually plays the game.
