I hate the game Sorry. I think I have won a grand total of once.
Monopoly is awesome! My only gripe with it is that it takes a long time to play, just like Risk. Monopoly and Risk games can last anywhere from 2-5 hours.

- Monopoly -WAAY to long.
- Risk -Fun, but only if you have time, and it's too easy if you're playing against newbies.
- Clue -So very awesome.
- Scrabble -Good, but not for everyday use.
- Chess -Good as long as people don't play to slow.
- Checkers -Good if played with forced jumps, no strategy otherwise.
- Shoots and Ladders -Kiddie game.
- Backgammon -Excellent game.
- Battleship -Fun with travel battleship in the car. Shouting letters to your friend in your living room... not so much.
- Cranium -Looses replay value.
- Chinese checkers -Love it.
- Jenga -Annoying to clean up, fun until that moment.
- Stratego -Blah.
- Go -Seems fun, only played it a couple times.
- Trivial Pursuit -Yay... but makes me feel dumb. They need a Scifi/Trek version.
- Sorry! -Kiddie game.
- Candy Land -Kiddie game.
- Parcheesi -Ehh... isn't this just Sorry? (just kidding)
- Other (please specify) -none
- I don't like board games - I do like board games.
So round Two is... Risk, Clue, Chess, Checkers, Chinese Checkers, Jenga, Go, and Trivial Pursuit.
Round Three... Risk, Clue, Chinese Checkers, and Trivial Pursuit.
It's so hard to eliminate after that.

Good one, but would they even play if they found out the money wasn't real?
Trivial Pursuit, yay! I really love Catch Phrase, but it's not a board game per se.

I have some nice memories of marathon Scrabble and Monopoly games with my cousins.

So the combination is 1-2-3-4-5. That's the stupidest combination I've ever heard in my life! That's the kind of thing an idiot would have on his luggage!- Dark Helmet; "Live free or die.

Also my second favourite game is Lord of the ring.
Hate the money hungry and movement/choices restricting games.
