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).
