Board Games

The other night my favorite girlfriend arranged for some friends of ours to meet and play Monopoly. Monopoly is probably my favorite game of all time. I remember in my freshmen year at Bethany we played so often, and so late into the night, that they made a rule to close the lounge at 12:30. I remember one of my roommates getting so angry that he couldn't beat me that he made me play him 1 on 1 almost every night for about a month. Anyways, I was glad to play (and win) again the other night.

So what are the best BOARD games (not card games)? Here's the top 3 games I've played and enjoyed. Help me discover some new and great board games!

1. Monopoly- My all time favorite
2. Risk- Hard to find people to play
3. Beyond Balderdash- Creativity reigns

In the near future I'll have 2 similar posts. One on card games and one on a category of games that needs a name (maybe 'pieces' games or something). I'm referring to games of strategery that require lots of pieces being maneuvered (checkers, chess, connect 4, othello, etc).

I have zero 'unliked' girlfriends. But by that I don't mean that i like all my other girlfriends, I mean that I have no other girlfriends. I have never played Settlers of Catan. My word choice was poor.

Yeah, that'd be fun :) I've never played parchizzi or candy land that I remember. I played clue, but only with 1 other person. i'm told it's more fun with more people.

I find Board games too easy. (especially Monopoly) I love the game Encore. Teams get to sing songs back and forth to each other trying to be the last team to think of a song with a word in it. You move tokens around a board as well so i guess that qualifies.

well matt if you have every played sorry, that is basically the baby version of Parchizzi

I'm a private pilot and I'm interested to take up an online pilot training course.

I've come across privatepilotdvd at [url=http://www.privatepilotdvd.com]private pilot training[/url] as well as jeppeson flight school.

Which is better? If I want to take up a [url=http://www.privatepilotdvd.com/helicopter-pilot.htm]helicopter pilot training[/url] course in future, which is more suitable?
