Board Games

m_burrell82m_burrell82 Member Posts: 97 Courageous
Normal times I go to groups in pubs, like The Selkirk in Tooting to play Board Games. We don't know yet when they will bring back pubs. Then would they allow us to play Board Games, right up to people and where you can't wear masks cos you are drinking, sometimes eating. The games at the pubs often times more difficult than ones we get to play at our drop ins. Since I lost where I used to have a list of my games. Lets try to do it here. Maybe in better times folk can come to my place or something:

Monopoly: original, Cheaters; mega, Empire, , Milliionaire; Marvel Universe, Here & Now; Ticket to Ride: European. King of Tokyo; Risk: old & newer, Captain America Civil War; Destination: Downton Abbey, Great Britain, Exploding Kittens, new Cluedo, London Board Game, Great Game of Britain, Scotland Yard; Hotel Tycoon, Labyrinth; Doctor Who Time Travelling Game; Zombie Labyrinth; Game of Life: original; Fame; I'm a Celebrity- Get me out of here;Omnitrix Battle Game; Bratz: Passion for Fashion; Rock Angelz

    Hi @m_burrell82

    That is a really nice list of games, I have to admit I haven't played that many on your list! I am a big fan of Mouse Trap if you have ever played that.

    One thing I was going to suggest is have a look at this thread in the meantime, it has some board games you can play with friends, against the computer or people that are waiting to play.

    Monopoly is my favourite. I went to a board games cafe/bar about a year ago where they have about 2,000 different games which you can play while you eat and drink. That was fun. :)

    Chess or backgammon for me.

    Are you a fan of Monopoly Cheaters Edition @m_burrell82? I found the cheats a bit too restrictive, if I'm honest! :lol:
    I've never learnt how to play backgammon @mikehughescq but chess is a favourite in our house. It's about the only game I can play with the kids and still reliably win at.

    well, made it a little different. Whether I should say this funny story here, but in a Munch with Dominant women. (Well there are all kinds of Munches, normal times, a Beard Munch, a Mac and Cheese Munch, for instant). The Munch I took it too, though, we played it and the ladies went over the amount of cheats you should have in the game. In keeping with that Munch though, us guys didn't think we could say anything.

    Backgammon is great @Adrian_Scope. 80% luck and 20% skill but the skill is tough to get right.

    Monopoly is also a firm favourite in this house! We have far too many additions... 
    • Game of Thrones
    • Disney
    • Electric
    • Star Wars
    • Stranger Things
    But I do like Labyrinth, it was something we always played at my Aunts house. :)

    Just out of interest, I remember monopoly has had many different editions based on films, I bet they are collectors items now. Does anyone have any?

    Hi all, I don’t have the brains of chess lol I used to love playing Frustration, Kerr plunk, Connect 4 a different type of games I know lol but I loved playing these when I was young. 
  • Adrian_ScopeAdrian_Scope Testing Team, Community Team Posts: 7,746 Scope community team
    Frustration is, unsurprisingly, one of the most frustrating games I've ever played. :angry: It's basically banned in our house.

    I think I've played Cards Against Humanity both at a Munch I mentioned about above as well as Board Games meetings, as well as Exploding Kittens as well as at least this Expansion. I also played a game called Kittens in a Blender at a Board Game meeting, so poor kittens.
  • ross2503ross2503 Member Posts: 91 Pioneering
    @m_burrell82
    Yes poor kittens indeed!

    I've played Cards Against Humanity a few times, it's not so much a board game but it's still great fun :) 
  • m_burrell82m_burrell82 Member Posts: 97 Courageous
    America calls these games Table Top Games which better covers all the games we play at our meetups and in those cafes.

    @Chloe_Scope   How shall we get folk together? I'd be happy giving out my address, email address, telephone numbers etc. & who knows how many households one is bubbling,  and how many households folk belong to and so on.

     Hi Everyone 

    There are some great games mentioned here👍

    Ticket to Ride games are awesome we’re big fans here - We have the Europe, London and New York editions. Europe is good for more in-depth game. London and New York good for quicker games or a a starter for newbies to the game. Something different about each board though 😀.

    We also like Carcassonne (tile based), Lost Cities ( great online scorecard for this which makes things easier and quicker), Forbidden  Island (cooperative game) and Quirkle  (tile based very addictive)👍.

    @Stayce  So, I live in New Addington, South London. How far away are you from me?

    This thread is really helping me at the moment! Restriction permitting, I'm going on holiday later this year with the family, we're planning on taking some board games to play in the evenings :)

    I was in the Chess Club at school many Moons ago.

    And years later I more or less taught my old Gardening instructor at College how to play.

    I used to play a lot of Warhammer. I actually enjoyed painting the figures more so than playing the game. This is an example of what I used to paint. Its fully magnestised so the arms / wings / etc can be posed in different positions.
