Lunchtime Poll: Favorite Board Game?

Did you know there are board games besides Monopoly?

Growing up, I played the usual games: Monopoly, Sorry, Mousetrap. They were fine. Once I became an adult, I stopped, other than the odd game of Trivial Pursuit.

Then my husband took me to an actual game store. And I learned there are far more games than just Monopoly. Games based on history, games based on strategy, skill, or luck.

I’ve grown quite fond of Carcassone, where you compete with other players to build a medieval city.

What is your favorite board game?

History. Hindi cinema. Hugging cats.

Ooh I love Carcassone! It’s particularly great on the ipad as you don’t have to have the inevitable argument about how to calculate the farm points at the end :) I remember we had the Game of Life when I was a kid. It went on for ages and then at the end you had to go round in a circle for ages until someone landed on ‘retirement’. 10 year old me was not impressed.

My favourite party game of more recent years is Articulate. It’s sort of like charades, but with talking instead of pictures, if that makes sense. Lots of fun with a big group.
