Are board games ever going to go out of style and stop being made ?
I really don't think so. As long as people still enjoy sitting down together and playing a good game, rather than being virtually linked up to everything imaginable, board games will still be around.
The scale and type may change, but I think they fill a great family or party need.
I'm with Brandon on this one. Board games are like books that way-- they evolve with the times and press their way into new niches, finding new audiences who will love them even more! Heck, just look at all the board games Fantasy Flight Games has come out with! Some of those are even sold in major book stores, like Borders!
Like everything else, board games will make a comeback someday.
Well, probably not. There have been many styles of games in the past that have gone extinct, so to speak, but I have to agree with brandonhart 100 on saying that they will probably stick around for quite some time.
That is, if you still enjoy playing Candy Land.
