I would love to know too.
I haven't played since I was a kid, except when Janga?,
first came out. But that's not a board game, either.

One of our favorites is Cranium. We also like the various Taboo, Jokers and Pegs (or Pegs and Jokers), Pictionary, Trivia Pursuit (board version, don't care for the DVD version), Scene It (both the board and the DVD version). There's one that I can't remember the name but it's not a board game but rather an electronic version of Hot Potato meets Password. I'll have to look that up. But these are just some of the few we like.

We have a game called Tripoley - it's rummy, hearts and poker, all in one. We don't play much, as DH is not a game-player, but I remember it being fun.
