    Recently played Agricola, and it's one of my new favs. Takes a little to get into it, but it's a fun experience.

    You're pretty much limited to online sites such as Funagain and Boards & Bits unless you live in a city big enough to have a game store. Even then, the best prices are online.

    My current favorites are 7 Wonders and a game called "Glory To Rome". There are also a number of good games available for IPad and IPhone; if you have one of those devices that would be a cheaper way to find out if you like this sort of thing.

    Search for a game, and there is usually a "Shop" link next to each item in the list of results.

    Or you can just use Google to get the best prices.

    I always liked the board game TROUBLE as a kid. I think I may buy it to take camping next year.

    Being the old foggy that I am, raised in the 60's, that was more up my alley. Back then you didn't have video games, TV wasn't 24/7 and you were lucky to get 6 channels between VHF/UHF. So we played a lot of the classic board games..... Monopoly, Life, Clue, Sorry, Parchessi, Bingo, Yahtzee, Chinese Checkers. If it was made by Parker Bros, MB, Hasbro, Marx, or Ideal, we had it.

    I remember these two....





    My brother and I use to play the heck out of this, and I found it again a few years ago.

    Re: Favorite Board Games

    Got to play 7 Wonders for the first time yesterday. I can see why several people on here listed it as a favorite. Very fun game that we'll have to include into our rotation.

    We also played Power Grid. The box looked like it would be a cheapish game but I thought it was a lot of fun. It reminded me of Ticket to Ride but with more strategy/less luck.

    Re: Favorite Board Games

    I love Apples to Apples but I almost always play it with a large group so some of the answers end up being beyond ridiculous.

    My favorite board games right now are Scattergories (that counts, right?!) and Cranium. I enjoy the Trivial Pursuit types of games but I usually suck at them which bums me out when I lose badly to everyone else. I'm undefeated in the Pop Culture DVD version though!
