I love board games! I especially love Scrabble, Monopoly, Trivial Pursuit, Risk, and Stratego. I also like checkers, chess, Clue, Parcheesi, and Acey Deucy. My biggest problem is finding people to play with! Years ago I babysat a couple boys. The oldest one was 8 when I started babysitting and 10 when they moved. My daughter was a year or so younger but she played like a kid (of course she was one!), so she didn't offer a lot of challenge (of course I still played games with her), but Kyle played like an adult. He and I played Risk and Stratego all the time (also Mille Bornes, which is a card game). I missed him so much when they moved (not just because of games--he was a good kid). BTW, when my amazing game partner Kyle finished high school he went on to Harvard with a full academic scholarship. He always was a smartie.
