I keep it classic with Monopoly and Scrabble!

I came across a Godfather Edition Monopoly once. It was super cool. You buy places like Corleone's Estate and make your way to the top of the family business. I saw an article about this a little while back about a bunch of Godfather games and toys - I'll see if I can find it.

Man I miss being a bit younger and having the time to veg out and play some board games. When I have kids, I'll luckily have an excuse to play more often.

Friends of ours are ardent quizzers, so we always get hammered at trivia games. We went round last week and they'd invested in Pictionary to level the playing field. I think we won, not sure, many beers were consumed so memory is vague, we didn't get home until about 5am.

I have a good idea for a board game it's called disney infinety vs skylanders the video game ok so here it goes it is compatable with an exisiting chess board but you need to buy a starter pack of peices and scenery costing £60 then extra peices will cost £6 each or or £15 for expansion packs sound good to anyone? .... or shall we just play ludo?

Not a boardgame as such, but received Legend of Zagor one Christmas.

It was like a basic D&D board game, each square had a tile you overturned, and this would reward you with gold / potions of a fight.

it had an electronic 'box of wonders' that used to shout NPC stats to you and subsequent rolls during combat. Once you had vanquished your foe there was a hilarious sound effect of the creature dying.

Was a good laugh at the time, not sure how much fun it would be now!

Guessing this was late 90's.
