    Talking What is your favorite board game?

    What is your favorite board game?

    I am not asking about strategy games, such as chess, Stratego, Battleships etc. I'm interested to know about games in which you move your piece on a track (around or on a given path) after rolling a dice, performing tasks along the way, collecting "money" or points etc.

    Let's hear some rare ones too, if that's your game. Links to games and rules etc. are appreciated.

    Settlers of Catan is my favorite, but since that is kind of a strategy game, I will vote for Cranium.

    Thanks for posting Ludo! There are at least 3 different such flavors that I know of.

    Has anyone heard of a board game called something along the lines of "Seeking Oil"? You'd go around the board, placing your oil drills, tanks and refineries in 4 designated areas, earning money from other players.

    Well, if you throw out strategy games, I'd have to go with something like Talisman, although I haven't played that in a good 10 years or so.

    That's nice Biju, but please read my 1st post again

    So would risk count? it involves rolling a dice or five. Out of the ones you listed I think I would have to go with the Game of Life.

    Ack, guess I didn't read the initial post correctly either, then I'd have to say Monopoly, or Parcheesi

    I'm surprised it didn't make the poll.

    I'm surprised no one mentioned diplomacy... we've been playing it at work to team build between departments.

    I prefer scrabble but Monopoly and CashFlow 101 is also in my list.

    My vote was other: I enjoyed playing a game called Axis & Allies. I believe it was a Milton Bradley branded game. Though I do enjoy Monopoly, I can't remember the last time a full game was actually completed!

    Definitely Monopoly. Whenever I can get some other people to play, I'm in.

    I believe both of those games are strategy games and that's why they aren't on the list (I never played Axis & Allies but I've heard of it. Sounds fun.).

    Do not pass go, do not collect $200!

    My vote for Monopoly as well, and trivial pursuit is a close 2nd.

    There is no topping the timeless classic that is, and always will be, Monopoly.

    I used to like playing Sorry! as well.

    Yeah Settlers of Catan is great fun. Especially when you are able to appear non-threatening and then slyly sneak up and grab the win

    However the regards to the list..Trivial Pursuit easily. I am the Queen of useless Trivia!
