I have lots of favorites and i just love playing board games. It is an activity that my whole family enjoys, and it is great quality time. We play Clue, Monopoly, Uno, SkipBo, and some that are new to us and not traditional favorites. My ultimate favorite is Life. We have so much fun playing that because we get crazy and kind of create personalities for our people. Before we actaully start playing, we give our people names and then make up a simple background. Then trhoughout the game we stay in character. It is so much fun and it really helps build my daughter's creativity. We really like to go out and buy unknown games to try out. We are not too picky, as long as at least 4 people can play it and it is family friendly we will give it a try.

My daughter is just about to turn 9, but we started playing board games with her when she was about 4. We took our time to teach her how to play and started with easy games like Life. When she was just starting out she just spun and moved, but as she got older she started doing more. Now she can be the banker if she wanted. Board games are a great way to teach a child. There are so many skill that a child can learn without realizing they are learning. Board games help with stategy, mathematics, thinking skills, creativity, and so much more. I don't think it is really ever too young to start. It just takes patience but the benefits are well worth it.

I love playing boardgames! My favorites are: 1) Millionaire's Game (much like Monopoly) 2) Snakes and Ladder (loved it as a child) 3) Chess (all kinds of chess) 4) Scrabble and 5) Mad I seldom play anymore, as there's usually no one to play with here.

The Game of Life - The Game of Life is a classic Milton Bradley board game that you can now play on PC. In this game the object is to pick a good career, try to get the highest salary possible, and end the game with the highest net worth
Oh I love to play board games. I have tons of them and usually no one to play them with..lol I used to love clue and monopoly. I really liked The Game of Life when I was really young. I would go to my fathers for the weekend or during the summer and my stepbrothers had The Game of Life. We would play all day when it was raining or cold. Oh I just loved that game.

My all time favourites would definitely be Monopoly, Mad and Sahibba. Mad is just the opposite of Monopoly. We are supposed to loose our money..!! Isn't that just 'mad'? Hahaha..That's why i'm good at it.. Anyway, despite all the gadgets that we have nowadays, nothing can beat the excitement of playing these with my siblings, cousins and friends. It's totally different and cannot be compared at all with playing PS2 or online games. And yes, i still play them once in a while..

I love Monopoly! I haven't played board games in a long long while though. Maybe I'll teach my kid/s so I'll have someone to play with.

My all-time favorite board game is Monopoly! This board game is definitely a classic. This is a strategy game wherein the wealthiest wins! It is fun to make believe that you have that much cash to throw away. heheheh
