    My favorite at the moment is Bananagrams. It's real easy to have a quick game with someone or a few friends.

    Followed closely by The Game of Risk.

    Scrabble and Trivial Pursuit are in a close battle for third place.

    Ugh I fucking hate Monopoly!

    Bananagrams is much better than Scrabble Pete. We'll get down on it sometime.

    Do you paint those yourself khoma? :laughing:

    monopoly, cluedo and pictionary usually always a part of christmas celebrations here

    and i havent played since i was about 17 but would play warhammer fantasy battle (not 40k/epic tho) again given the right circumstances

    risk is too much of a boring, longwinded, headfuck of a game for me tho these days but have enjoyed it in the past

    i also like chess but suck at it, so dont play much

    Used to play monopoly a lot, love scrabble and boggle because I'm pretty good with words, trivial pursuit is fun too.

    The absolute best though is [can't remember it's fucking name, the one where you describe what's on the card and your team has to guess it, getting as many as possible in a minute].

    Play scrabble a lot still. I also live monopoly, but that can get very boring or annoying very quickly depending on how the game goes.

    My sister keeps trying to get me to play "Bookchase", and its fucking shit...those damn english and theatre studies graduates

    You know it.

    There was pictures on the bottoms of the trees and you had to go around and look at them secretly and then go to the castle and do something, can't remember what exactly.

    I just remember loving those blue spots that the trees go on, the most awesome colour ever.

    nah not wow, wow is for geeks :teeth:

    i take it you dont like strategy games then?

    i thought those kinda things were right up your alley anyway? ie: turn based strategy gameplay... (seeing as how u showed interest in advance wars and have talked positively about turn based rpgs on ps1 etc)

    hell even gears of war looks like it was designed by the same people who did the warhammer 40k games/models

    blood bowl was great.

    i have been known to play tragic the gathering also - which is brilliant but terminally sad.

    of course playing board games is really sad, but pretending to be a space soldier in video games is fine "wooooooo i've got the hammer of dawn sniffle sniffle lets let the locust have it"

    fair play, blood bowl was good in that it could replace monopoly or whatever and you didnt need to play for like 10 hours solid to finish a game :teeth:

    good fun actually imo... all started with heroquest for me lol tho that was pretty shit...


    only way id play WH now would be if i met a load of people who were overly up for a warhammer fantasy battle, had it all setup and a shit load of weed and i had a whole day free for it, even them im sure id get bored by the 3rd-4th hour... always used to :burn: bit too long winded really
