    Not really a "board" game, since it's played with cards.

    Bang! - a spaghetti western game played with cards. It comes in a giant bullet. http://boardgamegeek.com/boardgameex...ang-the-bullet

    Last Night on Earth - fight hoards of zombies as a stereotypical zombie movie character, or maul stereotypical movie characters as a hoard of zombies http://boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/2...he-zombie-game

    Battlestar Galactica - a really complex game based on one of the best sci-fi shows ever http://boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/3...star-galactica

    I also dig Settlers and Carcassonne.

    Do Strat-O-Matic, APBA, Pursue the Pennant count? They were played with dice! I play trivial pursuit fairly regularly with friends.

    I've played Settlers of Catan a few times. Always happens to be when my wife and I get together with my best friend and his wife. By the time we start playing, me and him have had way too much to drink. My inability to grasp the game while inebriated always makes for an interesting night

    My wife's family likes to play Apples to Apples. And they do it without drinking.

    Worst game ever.

    I played Puerto Rico for the first time the other night. Very interesting game. Seems to be many different strategies you could use to win in a given game.

    I love Risk. Even downloaded the app on my ipad.

    Stratego used to be a favorite when I was younger. Such a fun game to play.

    The only thing that annoyed me about Risk is that there seemed to always be secret alliances forming between two different players. I guess that is the reality of world domination

    You guys bothered to keep the alliances secret? Ours were always right out in the open.
