Though I haven't played a good board game in some years, thats not to say that I wouldn't. I always enjoyed board games, especially monopoly. That was always one of my favorites.

Oh yes, I still do play board games. Not as many as I used to of course but I will always have a soft spot for Stratego, Monopoly, and Risk.

I haven't since I was little. I used to love to play Monopoly. Me and my cousins and sister would play this game, we could not get enough of it... But now I have no interests in it... I am still trying to figure out, what made me fall in love with this game??? I do know that we would pretend the money was real money that is why we liked to play it.

Totally! I love Monopoly and almost bought the DVD version of Atmosfear a few days ago (yeah... I've been using the VHS version for a decade or so). My friends and I play 'Go' or Othello and "La Trunculi" (sp?), western chess, backgammon, ... I'm learning Shogi at the moment (so frickin' complicated). We like Scrabble, Articulate, Boggle, Taboo... We also play RISK and Diplomacy... I'm such a manipulative, conniving bint in these game! *grin* The second RISK game I ever played I totally owned! Diplomacy: http://www.urbanmuggles.com/v2/2008/04/26/treaties-broken RISK: http://www.urbanmuggles.com/v2/2008/03/26/currently-reading-6/ (about 5 paragraphs down) We like card games too... we're an unconventional bunch of 20 somethings...

I play when there is someone to play with.I love board games.I believe that playing games can keep you sharp mentally.In fact I'm going to try to get my friend who has alzimers to play checkers with me some.Maybe it will help to stimulate her brain some.

I still play board games until now. My favorites when I was younger were Monopoly, Millionaire's Game, Clue, Life and Scrabble. My cousins and I still play them once in a while. Not as often as we did before though. But I still enjoy playing these games. It's sad that more and more people are playing computer games instead.

Occasionally when I can get enough people together to play a game of monopoly, I play. A friend of mine and I here in my hometown, get together now and then to play a game of chess. He's in Germany right now, but I know we will get together to play again, as soon as hecomes home.

I still play board games, I love to play them! My husband gets so bored and tries to think of an excuse to not play with me all the time haha. Each time I was pregnant, I would make him play board games with me for hours, it's all I wanted to do for some reason. I love playing Monopoly, Sorry, Life, Clue, Battleship, Scrabble, Payday (90's version), Uno, etc. I've been looking to get into the "Scene It" games, especially the Disney version. I like to stick to the classic board games, but that one looks kind of fun. Another newer game I thought was really fun, was Apples to Apples, but you need multiple people to make it fun!

I actually play quite a lot, thanks to my uncle who has shown me the real world of board games, much better stuff than boring american rubbish like monopoly or cluedo. I'm also on my school's chess team, so that means I play every week

No, I really do not play board games very much anymore. I used to love monopoly but I guess in the age that we are in now with all the computer stuff and electronic things getting a monopoly board out seems like too much trouble.

My family and I love to play board games! Even my four year old says she likes to play board games more than watching television!
