    Well with a certain season well on its way,what Board Games did you play back in the day or indeed now?
    Old favourites of mine and my siblings were Connect 4,Home You Go,Monopoly and Draughts,oh and Ludo.
    When i got a bit older i was into Chess for a bit,but bhoy does that blow your mind.I am still very good at Connect 4 and Draughts though.
    Oh and i have always liked Scrabble and the odd game of of Strip poker using a Board Game over the years:fear:

    Anyway what are your favourites???

    Always wanted to try that game where the aim is to lose all your money. Sounds ridiculously easy but there must be a catch to it.

    They call it Chutes and ladders here in the US, and Clue instead of Cluedo. Very strange

    Anyway my favourites were Risk, Escape from Atlantis, and Trivial pursuit

    Risk and Cluedo.

    Cluedo reminds me of rainy days in Ireland with my grandparents.

    Risk reminds me of the glory days of the empire x

    Here, anyone remember a game called Ludo? That was class. Had to get all your coloured pieces into the middle bit after rolling the dice. Very little skill involved.
