    What games do you still play from your childhood?

    Do you still play any board games, card games, computer games or role-play games that you enjoyed playing as a child or teenager?  Why do you think they still appeal to you as an adult?

    I still play most of them (i.e. Uno, Trouble, Go Fish, Monopoly, etc.), as well as outdoor games like tag, frisbee, and hide-and-seek...but then, I can't say that they necessarily appeal to me as an adult, I'm just the mother of a 5-year-old and he loves them. He loves them even more when mommy plays too smile.

    I love playing games from my childhood. I like to play the usual games like scattegories, taboo, uno, jenga, and monopoly. One really fun game that I used to play when I was younger was what I call the "ABC" game. As a family we did a lot of traveling back and forth to L.A. because of my sister's illness so we had a lot of time to kill riding in the car. What we would do is as we went down the road we would start with the letter "A" and find something that began with it. Then we moved on to "B" and so on. Sometimes with letters like "Z" and "Q" it would take awhile to find objects so the game could sometimes last all the way to Los Angeles. :-)

    I still love playing the old classics- scrabble, monopoly, cluedo and trivial pursuit.

    They are lot of fun especially as a family. I recently played card games with my two brothers and we had an absolute hoot.

    As a child I grew up very poor. We didn't have board games so we made up our own. One game we played we called I SEE and what you had to do was find something obsure that you see, discribe it vaguely and challange who you're playng with to find it. After a certain amount of guesses( choose how many guesses each person gets in the beginning of the game)you have to give hints which direction its in, about what its doing, what color it is or how big or small it is . While you're looking for your object the others have to turn away so they don't know which direction your object is in. if no one can find it you have to point it out and you get another turn. If some one finds it its their turn. Its fun, easy, no cost,  interesting, can be done anywhere and you get to see things others see that you might not notice. I haven't played for a while because its hard to find someone else to play with.

    Chess or Indonesian call it "Catur" and my native language - Minankabau call it "Catue",  because chess can be played by all ages; children, teenager, adult, old man; man as well as woman. And, this game is also known by almost all peopla from the whole world. It is not boring, although we only play several pieces on the board.
          Beside that, I also still like playing domino. It is also enjoyable, even, in some condition, it is more enjoyable than playing chess, because there is so much fun in this game; in chess, we only play the game in two, meanwhile domino can be played by four players.

    Sometimes when I'm bored I play Life, Monopoly, and Uno with my friends. I guess they still appeal to me as an adult since they're great for killing time and reminds me of being a child.

    I still like to play truth or dare. I like daring people to do crazy things, but I can never come up with a good question for the truth part.

    I still enjoy most board games from my childhood--love playing them with my grandchildren.  One game I do not enjoy any longer is Candyland--that game goes on forever and I worry I will die of boredom and my grandkids will have to shove Nana's corpse under the table to finish the game.

    As a form of entertainment, playing games has been around in existence for many centuries.  The very first record of gaming dates back to 3000BC with evidence found for the Royal Game of Ur.  Also in that same century, Egyptians started playing... read more

    I play the occasional round of Monopoly or Uno, but generally I like to try new board and card games.  When I was a child I made up a lot of adventure board games and pen and paper RPG's for all of my friends to enjoy.  I wish I still had all those materials.  I'm sure the games weren't nearly as fun as I remember, but it would've been neat to see my childhood handy-work.

    I still play Scrabble. I would love to play Monopoly again if I could find anyone to play it with. And I would love to play Cribbage again, but I don't think I remember how to play it.
