MissTea#3 always requests Game of Life or Monopoly. She rarely gets her way!

Monopoly really has to be the worst game ever made. And yet it's the one people gravitate towards. Such a shame that people are missing out on genuinely fun, balanced, (and timed) games!

Monopoly and Risk are two good examples of games that are waaaaay too slow as trad board games, but work much better on a computer, with all the mechanics sped up...

Yes, we'll play monopoly (occasionally) on the wii but never as the board game.

Mr Carp loves Risk. I find it very boring.

We played Catan tonight though, with the fish extension, because it's a 3+ player game and we're taking T1 back to uni tomorrow.

Myself and a few friends have been "meeting" online most Wednesdays to play board game adaptations which are available on Steam. We've mainly been playing Wingspan, Scythe, and most recently, Root. They're all quite reasonably priced and are great adaptations of the board games. It also means you can get some solo games in against decent AI.

Also, the "Humble Bundle" website currently has a good deal on digital board games. I think you Ticket to Ride and all the expansions, Pandemic, Lord of the Rings Card Game, Blood Rage, and Terraforming Mars for about £7.

I'm a bit hooked on the online implementation of Carcassonne at the moment. The AI players are more aggressive than my usual real-life opponents and there is a lot of trying to creep into the other player's city going on!

Formula One yesterday preceded by Munchkin for a wet bank holiday Monday.

We keep trying Munchkin and end up frustrated. The rules are written in a really friendly, fun way, but I'm always left with the feeling that we're missing "something" key about the terms used which means we keep coming up with scenarios that we'd not thought through. Perhaps we're just not sufficiently experienced.

Saw this on the BBC; I've known this game as Mancala, and played it with both a two row setup and a four row setup. Similar to dominoes or backgammon, the sort of game you can sit outside a coffee and play without stress and while the time away whilst chatting too.
