    Best board game-Ticket to Ride!

    If you want a GREAT board game for Christmas, we love Ticket to Ride. It's a $50. game, but worth it. Strategy, fast paced and games last about a hour. The original Ticket to Ride can be played with 5 people, they have several other Ticket to Ride games out as well. You'll get hooked if you get one. Just an idea.

    Settlers of Catan is also a great game. I wish more people would play games like these instead of crap like Monopoly.

    You mean other than the fact that it's a horrendously designed board game that people still play for some unknown reason?

    I have to agree with Dane Cook on this one.

    This is every game of Monopoly ever played. (harsh language)

    Nothing wrong with a board game once in a while. Especially honeymoon board games!

    Re: Best board game-Ticket to Ride!

    My girlfriends dad and uncle started with ticket to ride and then got into settlers of catan and stuff like that...they even went to a convention. I can do ticket to ride and Carcasonne but anything past that I don't care to take 30-45 minutes just getting the game explained to me and then spend another couple of hours playing it. My attention span is gone before the directions are over.

    Re: Best board game-Ticket to Ride!

    Checked it out and it sounds interesting. I've really been looking for a non-video game that both my wife and son would like to play (my wife can't get into any of our video games).

    I ended up going to boardgamegeek.com and then bought 7 Wonders. It ranked as their #1 family game. Hope it is, because I paid through the nose for it.

    I really like that, and my son is finally old enough that he can play it (though we haven't recently). I got Tide of Iron last Christmas, and it is really fun, but a little too complex for him just yet (12 yrs old).
