    Favorite Board Game

    So, we have been playing a lot of board games of late and was wondering what everyone's favorite board games are.

    My top 2:
    1) Monopoly
    2) Risk

    I also loved playing Stratego back in the day...We have played monopoly about 6 times in the last week and just bought the new Risk game tonight and played it. However, I liked the old risk game with troops, horses, and cannons. The new version just has little plastic arrows as troops.

    Re: Favorite Board Game

    I like risk and monopoly.

    My favorite though is Axis & Allies. I have not played it forever but I love it. I also like Shogun and Conquest of Empires.

    I played another game once and liked it. I hope I am close, Cascone?

    I liked the game "Mouse Trap", back in the day. Monopoly is fun.

    Re: Favorite Board Game

    I love me some trivial pursuit. The wife and I played some monopoly on the 360 last night, been awhile since I've played that.


    It's Bushbama!

    Re: Favorite Board Game

    Has anyone ever heard of a board game with Tasmanian devil or something like that in it? I think I played it as a little kid, and some point during the game you spin up tasmanian and he spins down the mountain and can knock you off the path and you have to restart...anyone remember this?

    You're talking my language. I haven't heard of Cascone though.

    Also Auto Wars.

    Settlers of Catan is crazy fun. Risk is good stuff too. Monopoly is a family tradition for me.

    3. Apples to Apples (but it's more of a card game)
