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.

I second you on Scattegories! I love to play that game especially when there are four or more playing. I also enjoy Monopoly, Connect Four and Clue. DH only likes to play Monopoly so that's what I play mostly now!

I like Chess and Trivial Pursuit. I don't really view Chess as a 'boardgame', though. I don't know why, but it seems like it should have its own category or something (how could you put it in the same ilk as 'Mousetrap'? LOL).

Monopoly...and I love Pictionary as well.

My cousin and I would stay up all day/night playing Monopoly. We didn't get as extreme as Katie..but that's only cuz we lived 6 hours away from each other.

I got my husband the Millenium Edition of Monopoly for Christmas one year (can you guess what year)

I'm also very fond of cards and dice games as well. I play Solitare on my computer until my arm goes numb!
