I didn't see any thread on board games, so I thought I'd make one! Post recommendations and talk about your favorite board games here.

My favorite board game is Betrayal at House on the Hill.

The game has two parts. In the first part, 3-6 adventurers enter a haunted house and split up to explore it. As they explore the house (which changes shape each time you play the game), they come across creepy events, collect items and collect omens. Every time an omen is collected, the player needs to roll the dice; if they fail to roll higher than the number of omens, the second part of the game- the "haunt"- starts. One of the players becomes a traitor. The traitor, the reason for becoming a traitor, and the requirements for the traitor or the explorers to win, etc, changes each game.

It's a fun, versatile game... Though it's a bit intimidating if you've never played it before. Once you play it a few times, the game mechanics are easy to understand... But I imagine opening up the box for the first time and finding three separate manuals and over one hundred game pieces must be scary! Nonetheless, I'd recommend it- it's a ton of fun!

zodiacrain, I own and have played that boardgame, I also have played many other games, and own quite a few. What type of game do you prefer? I could suggest a few.

I play Axis and Allies. It's a fun game thats a little bit more in-depth than risk.

I had pokemon! sorry when I was kid! That game was awesome! XD

I loved playing these games as a kid:
Getting Into Trouble
Shoot and Ladders
Candy Land
Pretty Pretty Princess
Mouse Trap
This Indian Jones Game that I cannot remember the name of
Twister
Hungry Hungry Hippos
Battleship

Those are just to name a few.

Today:
Monopoly
Scrabble


I remember in the third grade we had a class project to make our own board games and bring them in to play. I made a rule where the oldest goes first. XD I was the oldest in the class so I always mad that I had to go last when playing board games with my friends.

I can't really point out a specific pattern for board games I like. I'm pretty fond of Settlers of Catan and Blokus. I'm not a huge fan of games like Monopoly. I like word games like Scrabble and Bananagrams as well.

Pretty Pretty Princess

I only discovered this game as an adult, humorously enough. XD

I remember having to make a board game in elementary school too. Now I'm kind of tempted to make one again...

Sadly they changed Pretty Pretty Princes. Today it features the Disney's Princess. :/
