    Default Board Games

    Are there any board games you enjoy playing with family, friends... maybe your children?

    My friends and I play Scotland Yard now and then. It's very old by now but still fun from time to time. Running around London as police officers, trying to find the elusive Mr. X. Requires quite a bit of coordination and tactics. Well, and some luck too.

    We still play Kimble (the Finnish licence of Trouble) here.

    And Sequence, too.

    Hm, I've never even heard of that game before. What's it about?

    I used to like playing Monopoly with my father (there were occasional times his father would play with us as well), though these days my interest in board games has started to wane. There are times I like to play Blokus however.

    I forgot chess. I even used to post my games on Facebook, but I must say I'm not good at it. I know how to remove the pieces and even end up in draw sometimes, but I just can't do a checkmate when the level of my opponent is too high. I have given up reading chess books, I insist the best way to learn is to play.

    I used to play chess quite a bit with my father when I was little but I never got too good at it honestly.

    My fam used to play an obscure Canadian game called Poleconomy fairly often. It's actually really good, but a bit of a time investment.

    Boardgamegeek only gives it 2.5 out of 5 stars! I bet it's too complicated.
