My wife can play Backgammon and Mahjong on the computer all day long. I just can't do it. I will play Scrabble, but my wife just doesn't like it...go figure.

my all time favorite was Monopoly. with it just me and the wife, we just really don't play board games, but do play different ones via Facebook.

another one i enjoyed when i was an adult was a game called Axis's and Allie's. board game similar to Strategy about WWII. very long drawn out game but enjoyable.

Chess is my favorite...one on one with an opponent.

Multiple player...Risk is my game.
I would like to learn that game but have never had the chance it looks very complicated

learning the moves isn't that hard. it is a game of strategy that is dependent on the skill level of the players. i use to enjoy playing chess with my father, (he was the one who taught me) but i find now mine are played on the computer now.

I've never played with one but I have read studies on them in relation to our unconscious mind.

I play chess but I'm terrible. I never spent that much time learning so I'm sure that is the issue.

I've played Risk online and always had a good time.

My wife and I play Scrabble. It causes many arguments and is the only time in my house that the dictionary gets dragged out.

I love Monopoly. I usually do pretty good but upset the people I play with.

I play a game called Czar which is pretty good for a two player strategy game.

I also play Dvonn.

They were all released as part of a series.

Stratego was another favorite of mine...capture the flag, one on one...each piece had a point value with Field Marshal as Number 1 and Infantry a 9. If a nine went against an eight, he lost. The Miner was an 8, the only one who could hit a bomb and not get killed.

Seems like a million years ago...

We had a rainy day so I spent most of it watching movies and playing board games.

Tried to play Operation with my Daughter following the rules.

She touched the sides every time and it got so frustrating for her she gave up.

She kept asking me "Dad, why are you getting so frustrated? I'm not getting frustrated at all." at which point she would go "Grrrrrrr....".

I was not even slightly frustrated.
