Does yahtzee count?

We also play this nasty game called words against humanity. It's a card game.
And we play rummy sometimes.
LOL auto correct changed rummy to crummy.

I love backgammon but no one really plays anymore. I play the computer but the computer doesn't get my happy dance when I get a gammon. .

Mouse trap simple? Maybe after you get all the booby traps set up . We only played a few times because that bath tub would never stay up.
I remember a board game that was made lifesize for a sat morning tv show but for the life of me can't remember the name but it was obstacles similar to mouse trap.
edit on 352016 by Sillyolme because: Had to add booby to the dictionary. Lol

We used to play a board game called the dark tower (not related to Stephen Kings dark tower.) You moved around fighting briggands but you had to buy food and magic stuff. It was the early eighties.
We also had a Harry potter Daigon alley game where you had to move around Daigon alley getting supplies for Hogwarts like wands and cauldrons. We played with our youngest who is twenty now.

Cards Against Humanity? I forgot that one! I love that game so much!

It's the only way to get a real stick in the mud to say something truly earthy, or for that matter, entirely horrific. I have rarely laughed as hard when playing a card game, as I have while engaged in a game of Cards Against Humanity!

Reminds me of a game we played in the sixties called mystery date. You had to collect the cards associated with a date like a swim suit a blanket a beach ball for a date at the beach or a prom dress shoes gloves etc for a prom date. Then when you have all the cards for a particular date you opened a door with a bunch of different guys on card stock behind the door and you won if the guy matched your date cards. So a guy in a bathing suit or a tuxedo or bowling gear. Totally a chick game.

Oh I know sometimes I can't even manage to be appalled enough at the combinations. Truly nasty and hilarious at the same time.

I guess we miss seeing the face of defeat across the table. The computer seldom pitches a fit if you beat it lol.

Yes! We try to have family "game night " at least once a month. Monopoly, Payday, Scrabble, Catan, Scattergories, Chess/Checkers (depending whose playing), Boure or other card games. Everyone has a good time.

Cards Against Humanity is hilarious but not for kids, I don't think. I'm going to look into Concept that someone mentioned. Thanks for that.

Why just those? I've always loved strategy games. The thicker the rule book is, the better I love 'em! When I was in high school and college I used to hang out with people whose idea of an awesome Friday and Saturday night was to clear off the table and spread out of the game. Sometimes, it was P&P RPGs, but often it was cards or board games too.

Then everyone chipped in for takeout and sometimes there was BYOB.

It kept us from barhopping and it was cheaper and we all had a really good time.

And my family has always been the gaming sort. Every year at Christmas we break out the board and card games. My grandmother really loved her Call Your Partner Rook. The current family favorite is a board/card hybrid called Pegs and Jokers. We also play a lot of party style games that need boards, and our son is into the old school kids games now that all need boards.

I recently taught my daughter how to play and win at backgammon. She is mathematically inclined which helps tremendously in winning - and she did beat me in all five games we played.

My first boyfriend who was a post grad was into board games, and we used to play one at least twice a week. I remember three of note, Ticket to ride, One about hunting Dracula which I can't remember the name of, and my favourite was a card exchange game about crops, which again for the life of me i can't remember... i am now going to have to ask him of google it.(My brain just popped the answer into my conscious, it was clearly filed under somewhere bizarre the game was called 'Bean Bonanza' and it is awesome)

But I enjoyed them, and do think about bringing it back into my life...


edit on 5/3/2016 by MrsNonSpecific because: Bean Bonanza!

Pandemic is fun if you got at least 3 people to play with.
