OK, skipping the “big 5” what are your favorite board games? I know board games have really fallen out of favor. But they still have a great place in my youthful memories.
(Yeah, I’m re-mining threads – but I never contributed to that one)
1. Afrika Korps. The first war game I’d ever played. My dad got it for me when I think I was 8 or 9. It became a tradition to play it over Christmas holidays. It never got old. The idea is that you fight the battles of 1941 in Africa between Rommel and the British 8th Army. It was first released in 1964 but apparently was a huge seller up through the end of the 80?s. If I had someone to play it with I’d probably pick it up.
2. Go. Far superior to Chess. Yes I suck at it. But I still love to play. I have fond memories of watching my Dad play as a kid. (He was pretty good) Want to learn? There’s actually a free version for OSX called Goban.
Speaking of board games, can some one please explain in Mousetrap what the point of the cheese is?
