Default Anyone still play board games? What's your favorite?

On NYD the fam came over and we had a round of Monopoly. Brought me back to when I was a kid and board games were fun. Great bonding opportunities.

My favs as a kid: Life, Mouse Trap, Risk, and Balderdash

Some ancient shit right here. Ever tried one of those deck building games?

Something like that https://boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/94362/rune-age ?

I got several friends that do speed all night and play those type of games for 24 hours straight. Sometimes even more.

I love settlers of Catan.

Iím also planning on buying and playing this game soon but I have to convince suitably nerdy friends to indulge me and join in:

Settlers of Catan is badass. Definitely my favourite.
Showed my brother and a few mates, and they all want to have another games night as quick as possible. Gets more competitive than monopoly.

Settlers of Catan is fantastic. I like the expansions too, they add new elements to the game when you start to get bored of it. If you liked SoC I recommend that you have a look at this other game called Carcassonne.

fuuuck Hero Quest was my fav game too growing up. Best mega drive game ever (tied with MK trilogy).

settlers of catan is probably one of my top 5 games ever. you can play it online at https://catanuniverse.com/en. live is better but this is still fun af.

Monopoly, but on the iPad with my cousins the last time I played.

Also, Clue is top 3 for me.

Still love Monopoly, but have to play with the right folk. Others would be like Pandemic and Carcassonne.
