    Default Favorite board or card games

    I just saw Pokemon monopoly today which reminded me of a game called Pokemon master trainer or something like that when I was a kid. Anyways, all of that got me thinking that it's been a long time since I've played any games and I've been itching to play some.

    What are your favorites?

    Ever since my family and I have been introduced to Tichu it's been our #1 game. It's so much fun.

    Besides that our biggest classics are Die Siedler von Catan (Settlers of Catan) and Heimlich & Co.

    Scrabble or Trivial Pursuit are #1 for me.

    I like a good game of Apples and Oranges or the R Cards Against Humanity. I'm really good at anything that let's me pander to the audience.

    I actually had that Pokemon Monopoly back in the day!

    Some of the most fun I've had was playing the Game of Thrones board game with my family (the first time my wife won, then I won, and interestingly, each of the times we won each one of us was playing Tyrell ). I also really like Munchkin, however mean that game may be.

    Ooh, and I think the coolest game we've ever played was this little card game one of our best friends bought on her trip to Italy for 1 euro - it's called Oriente and it's a small indie game that was so much more fun than anyone expected it to be.

    I totally forgot about Secret Hitler and Werewolf which are probably my two favorite games, at least the former. Seriously if you're a fan of mafia or similar games you owe it to yourself to give Secret Hitler a try. It's so good.

    Race to the Galaxy is a pretty fun one.

    Seven Wonders also has a lot of great points.

    Not to well versed in board/card games, but they are fun to bust out from time to time.

    Magic: the Gathering is my favourite by far ;D

    HeroQuest and Key to the Kingdom were my favorite board games growing up, and I'm still quite partial to them -- the former especially, as it is simple enough to play with anyone and offers near infinite replayability, as you can easily create your own adventures using the framework and pieces provided. Too bad I didn't take particularly good care of either game growing up. ._. I also picked up Castle Ravenloft and Wrath of Ashardalon a few years back, and I like those quite a bit as well, though it is a bit harder to create reliable custom scenarios / stories with them due to their highly random nature. I also find a lot of people are hesitant to play them the first due to the DnD license (for whatever reason), which isn't a problem I ever had with HQ or KttK, but everyone seems to get over that quickly once they actually play the games. Of the more common board games, Monopoly is far and away my favorite, but generally only with certain house rules and auctions in effect to speed up the game.
