What's your favorite Board Game?

post #1 of 599
Thread Starter 
I see that no one posts in here but I'm gonna start the thread any way. I've recently got back into playing board games (finding an excuse to drink can do that). I gotta say my favorite board game of all time is...

...RISK! Nothing's better than world domination!

ZOMBIES! is always fun. And Hungry, Hungry, Hippos.

Apples to Apples is a good party game. Imaginiff? and Cranium are good as well.

I'll fucking kick your ass in Battleship.

Original release or one of the watered down pop culture decade versions?

I'm a Scrabble enthusiast.

Cowards and mental midgets, every last one of 'em.

I'll play! I'm an ace at TP.

However, no one will play the Book Lover's Edition with me. At all.

I thought the Baby Boomer edition of TP would get easier when I got older but I still have little to no idea what they're talking about in those questions.

Do you think it is a good idea to challenge a librarian in that particular field?

Five bucks a wedge. Let's go.

Feudal is a damn good game, just think chess but being able to move every piece in a move. You even have archers! how cool is that!

I will play Trivial Pursuit all day long, especially if monies are involved.

The best board game, though, is Puerto Rico.
post #16 of 599
I can never find any one to play Puerto Rico with. Settlers of Catan and Carcasonne are available via XBL though so I'm able to play with virtual peoples.

I've got nine years working for Barnes & Noble if that helps.

Fair enough. I guess.

i played monopoly at the weekend for the first time in YEARS and fucking dominated it - i'm seriously thinking of going pro.

If anyone wants some 'ply action bring it and i'll boardwalk on you baltic avenue style.

Oh and I would be in for the TP posturing but you'd be playing the american version - so i'd be hopeless at guessing the state bird of arkansas or whatever. But i will offer my question-master skills, my expert diction and english accent will lend some gravitas to the contest.

Oh and Risk for sure - best game ever...
post #21 of 599
It's been twenty years, but I think I'll go with Crossbows and Catapults.
post #22 of 599
I hate Trivial Pursuit and Monopoly. Never saw the appeal. There's no real strategy. You either know the question or you don't. You either land on a particular property or you don't. Boring.

My friends and I are big fans of all three games (although Puerto Rico is our favorite). We're currently on a Bohnanza kick. It's great if you like to negotiate/debate/argue, which my friends who are lawyers love to do over every play.

If they somehow manage to get Puerto Rico on XBL, they'll find my dessicated corpse on the couch gripping a game controller.

No, see, this isn't hustling. If I planned to throw a game or two before systematically taking all of your money in a glorious orgy of useless knowledge, teeny plastic wedges, and tears (note: your tears), that would be hustling. This is talking trash.

Your mom.

We're playing Trivial Pursuit for cash? Count me in!

Yeah, well, where did you get your suit? At the toilet store?

My friends and I are all anxiously awaiting that day as well. As we get older, getting everybody into the same room at the same time to play a board game is like organizing a Beatles reunion. On XBox Live, we'd only need a couple of us at a time.

I love Power Grid. It's not a title that promises great excitement, but it's an incredibly well-designed game.

Whatever well-meaning aunt or uncle bought me this:



It was their fault I didn't learn chess until I was an adult. What a dopey-ass game.

Oh yeah, well the jerk store called and they just ran out of you!

And as for board games. I love LIFE. Love that little wheel.

What the hell is with the Westworld-esque look of that board game cover? Ploy? What bs.
post #30 of 599
Come on, the box is awesome.
post #31 of 599
Perhaps but the game still looks like bullshit and some kind of weird ripoff of Chinese Checkers.

And this is going to sound weird. But I have never actually played Risk. Now how about that.
post #32 of 599
Yeah, as I said I blame it for helping my retardation.

I blame my friend for my not playing Risk. He'd throw a fit by move 3 that the game was already decided and would loudly bitch that there was no way for him to win so we shouldn't keep playing. This was college.

What a dick.

yeah, its part of the bookshelf series made by 3M company, the one in the series Feudal is fun as hell..a great take on chess.


post #35 of 599
Yes! I remember a 3M logo on the back of the box. Wow.

Axis and Allies holds a special place near and dear to my heart.

thankfully a kick ass uncle in my family got me hooked on the right game...sorry about your lose..hahaha
post #38 of 599
Hey, I loved it at the time. I equate it with Guitar Hero not helping people to learn the guitar.
post #39 of 599
Ah yes Chess. I remember after seeing Searching for Bobby Fisher my dad took me to a chess school just to check it out. Learned a little but then gave up after soundly getting my ass kicked.

good point..haha

I for one just can't play the guitar..there for I stick with the Guitar Hero.
post #41 of 599
I've done neither and I did DDR once. I sucked.
post #42 of 599
I don't do DDR, I've tried...oh how I tried. roommate in college was really into it..nothing like waking up to him jumping all around the living room to that damn annoying game.
post #43 of 599
I had no idea how hard you had to hit the floor pads in DDR. But enough of that derail.
post #44 of 599
Arkham Horror!



Where your chances at survival are about as good as a real Lovecraft protagonist!
post #45 of 599
Dear god. I feel like I need a master's in engineering to understand that thing.
post #46 of 599
I've never really liked Arkham Horror. Too much random, not enough player decision. Although on that front, nothing's as bad as Talisman.
post #47 of 599
It's funny if by that very randomness you just keep getting fucked over and over again.

You can play it strategically, but chances of winning are always very slim. I like that.

Now what the hell's Talisman?

Pure, concentrated madness printed on cardboard.



You roll dice and draw cards to move your fantasy character around the board, collecting magic items and leveling up and whatnot. At no point do you ever make a real choice. It's completely random. The game basically plays itself, and it only needs you because it doesn't have hands.
post #49 of 599
Holy shit. Arkham has lots of player decision compared to that.

Hell yeah!!!! I think I still have it boxed up in my parents' basement.

Also, count me in for the Trivial Pursuit action. I have about 7 editions and no one will play with me.

For me, however, Clue is and always will be my all-time favorite, from original Clue to Clue: Master Detective to Clue: The Great Museum Caper. I love'em all.

Lastly, what's up with the new Monopoly where you don't even have to count and exchange money? You just slide your little credit card majigger through the scanner and it adds or removes money. I blame this for the dumbening of America!!!
