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.

Very hard. Must do it by elimination:
  • 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? :P (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. :wallbash:

Good one, but would they even play if they found out the money wasn't real? :P

Trivial Pursuit, yay! I really love Catch Phrase, but it's not a board game per se.

Monopoly, has to be the best of the list. Cluedo is also very good, but I dont have it. I have to say though, Scrabble would get my second vote on that.

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

Has anyone heard of a game called Careers? I would have to say that's my favorite. Monopoly is fun but we never finish a game cuz it takes too long. Sorry is a simple game that doesn't take too long so we used to play that a lot, but not as much now. we play mostly UNO now, which of course, isn't a board game. hey maybe you should start a "favorite card game" poll... :D i like card games more than board games because it's quicker and easier to set up and put away. yes i'm lazy...

I love Risk. I play green and let's just say that grasshoppers usually end up controling the world... Have dire problems with the soldiers though... After you get 20+ reinforcements it usually means you start running out of spare figures to put on the map...

Also my second favourite game is Lord of the ring.

Hate the money hungry and movement/choices restricting games.

I love risk. Both the original and (even better) the lord of the rings version. <It has a different board, as well as different pieces and rules. I bet you'd like that Legolas eh? :naughty3dg: It's only problem is it is looooooooonnng, if you think regular risk is long LOTR risk is longer. It can take weeks. Partly because of that I have only played about 5 or 6 games ever. But I have never lost one, I tied once but no loses with LOTR risk.

I also like monopoly, I have simpsons monopoly. I also have simpsons clue.

Chess is okay but I'm not very good.

I hereby confess to a weakness for Clue. I also like Jenga, but it's not really a board game...
