What have you played most recently? How was it?

What's your favorite board/card/out of a box game of all time?

Is there a game you've heard of and would really really like to try?



Just a general discussion of old fashioned games....

Same here, so they handicap me, i.e., fill 2 pies instead of one.

they tried handicapping me as well. I had to land on the pie space to get one, they could get one anywhere

The game I played most recently was Careers.

My favorite card game of all time is Pit.

Wow I haven't played Careers in ages!

Another game I liked was Masterpiece. Remember that one? Sometimes the painting was worth a million or was a fake... I always liked the painting by Jackson Pollock. We called it tin foil.

I've heard of Masterpiece but never seen it.

I played several rounds of Carcassonne this weekend with my in-laws. It's a tile laying game where you try to build walled cities and roads to score points. We've had it for awhile but never played - shame on us. It turns out to be a really fun game with strong replay value (the board changes every game). Eventually we'll have to get some of the expansions. Each expansion offers additional rules you can use, but we're mostly interested in getting more playing tiles.

I always loved the game Careers. Still have it - it was my mom's and it's so old that the money amounts are ridiculously low. Kinda like my copy of Life - always loved that game, too, but they've changed it so much.

I also have another board game that was my mom's, called Jubilee. I've got the board and at least most of the pieces (they had it tucked away in the attic), but no rules and she doesn't remember how to play. So wish me luck with my research into that! Hey, if anyone knows of that game, please PM me?

Played most recently? There is a dice game that I learned from my husband's family. I'm sure it has a name, but I've never heard it; we call it Dice. As in, "Hey, let's play some Dice!" or "Wanna play Dice?" or "Your mother wants to play Dice, so why don't we go out to the movies?" (my mother-in-law is the luckiest roller I've ever seen!!!)

Of course, my favourite game (aside from Careers) has always been Clue.
