Thread: Board Games - Which one is your favourite?

  1. Default Board Games - Which one is your favourite?

    We were at Mums a few weeks ago having a bbq party for DS2 who turned 3. After we had eaten all the food, Mum brought out 2 games for us to play - the original Operation and Buckaroo. My boys are 3 and 7 and they loved them. When me and my sister were younger, every Christmas, Mum and Dad would buy us a board game each and Mum still has them in her loft!! Many of them are making a comeback but it brought back such great mnemories when we were playing them and I try to get the boys a board game each for Christmas now as well but they are not as good as when I was a little girl.

    In Mum's loft were:
    Operation
    Buckaroo
    Frustration
    Monopoly
    Game of Life
    Computer Battleships
    Guess Who
    Downfall
    Connect 4
    Don't tip the waiter
    Hungry Hippos
    Mr Pop
    Build a better burger
    Mousetrap
    Scrabble
    Pictionary
    Atmosfear (you had to watch a DVD at the same time as playing)
    Ghost Castle
    Perfection

    Am sure there were more but can't remember them!!

    On seeing these games again, I was like a kid in a sweet shop and wanted to play all of them!!

    What was/is your favourite board game and do you still play it?

    I liked Othello. Could probably still play it but now hate most board (bored) games with a passion. Have to grit my teeth to play Monopoly with my son.

    Oh, that takes me back. Out of the games that I had I would either have to say Monopoly or Perfection.

    Though I always wanted Mousetrap - One of my friends had it.
