I'm talking about board games. You keep that video game ballyhoo out of this here thread.

Apples to Apples, Trouble, Monopoly, what gets your thimble hard?

The Words With Friends board layout actually is different than the Scrabble board. Nobody really cares, though.

Cards Against Humanity. Absolutely hilarious party game.

I'd imagine it would have to be to avoid getting sued.

I've never actually played WWF, though I do like Scrabble. I just wanted to say a video game board game that wasn't a licensed port of a proper board game.

I just got Elder Sign for Christmas. Played a solo game to teach myself the rules, and it seems good.

A recent favorite has been Penny Arcade: Gamers vs. Evil. My friends love Settlers of Cataan. I really like Arkham Horror, but my wife hates it since it takes forever and a day to actually finish a game. Also, she has a tendency to get lost in time and space, and that gets tiresome.

Received Forbidden Island for Christmas. It's a lot of fun.

Apples to Apples and Risk are a couple of my favorites. Any Parcheesi fans around? Played that a ton as a kid, but it's a rarity to find anyone that has played it, ha.

Apples to Apples is awesome
Love Catchphrase
Yahtzee is classic
Does cribbage count? Because I'm gangsta at cribbage.

I've considered getting Settlers of Catan, but I haven't gone down that road yet. Carcassonne (or however you spell it) is another one I've considered.

Elder Signs is a great co-op game when you have a group that enjoys working together. I think 3-4 players is probably ideal, but I think the game supports up to eight.

Munchkin

I love Munchkin!

Oh man, oh man! Has anyone ever played Conspiracy? It's a game where the goal is to get one of the eight player pieces into the center of the board to pick up a suitcase and bring it back to you home base. The catch is that any player can move any piece on any turn. However, instead of moving a piece, you can bid on a specific player piece and you can stop someone from moving a piece you've bid more on. You can also spend money to have one piece "kill" another piece to completely remove it from the board, so any money bid on that dead piece is lost. It's so much fun.

Have you checked out Arkham Horror? It's thematically the same game as Elder Sign, but quite a bit more involved. I like that it provides a lot more context as to what's going on than Elder Sign, but there's no doubt that Elder Sign is much easier to play. Your goals and the paths to accomplish them are much more straightforward.

I've considered getting Arkham Horror on multiple occasions. My main problem is that my gaming group probably wouldn't be as amenable to long, involved games as I am. However, I still keep it in the back of my mind as a game I'd like to try.

In reply to an earlier post on Dec 27, 2012 12:13:44 PM PST
All of those are great games.

I've been playing a lot of Wrath of Ashardalon: A D&D Boardgame, Forbidden Island, and now Mage Knight Board Game.

I just recently heard about this. Is that the one like apples to apples, except with awful things on the cards?

Yep, that's an accurate description.

For instance when I played it the other night one of the phrases was, "For my next trick I'm going to pull ____ out of ____." The winner won with "used condom" and "Bill Nye the Science Guy."

Hehe, GREAT party game.

"Shooting your rifle into the air while balls deep in a screaming pig" is my favorite card.

I played Cards against Humanity for the first time a week or two ago and that was one of the answers we got. Heh.
