Looking For A Decent Board Game, In A Property Obsessed World

Recommended Posts

Something good to get around the table, and have a laugh. I was looking for a old copy of Creature Castle - something spooky for Halloween.

I had a search at a major toy retailer, there doesn't appear to be much decent or original. Well, can you guess how many Monopoly games there are?

I like the sound of "Hello Kitty" Monopoly! Is everything pink?

I don't think "Hello Kitty" is capitalist enough!

Gosh! A Somerset edition! I hope to buy Gurt Clodney Priory, by placing my "Rolling Cheese" on the board! The other players will use other pieces, like a tractor, turnip, traction-engine, or badger

I used to really like Board games as a kid but I find them way too predictable these days with only one decent strategy and no opportunity to win by decent play. Monopoly is one of the worst; you may as well programme your strategy into a computer and press the button to get the result in seconds as it's all down to dice throws because the available money and additional available from mortgaging properties means that you just buy everything you land on and hope for a colour group.

Cards for me; genuine skill if you play the right games and fun for kids if you play the less tactical ones where anybody can win.

Miss the Bus and Newmarket. No actual gambling even for sweets as it puts too much focus upon winning rather than actually enjoying the flow of the game with it not mattering who wins.

Winkie is not very verbal. Always posts music videos, or adverts.
