Life and Monopoly were big in my childhood home. I still love Life as much as I did when young. In college I was a dorm director and instituted "Midnight Monopoly" on Fridays after classes. It would start at 8 pm and lasted anywhere from 4 to 12 hours! Our longest single game went from midnight to 8 am when it was voluntarily ended. Thanks for the memories!
I grew up with monopoly. We didn't have a lot of board games, but there was a Ouija board in the home for awhile until it got broke and was thrown away. I liked the monopoly board game the best. The Ouija board was kind of spooky. I knew some people who had shoots and ladders, etc...they had lots of board games. I used to play shoots and ladders with them sometimes.
Clue and Apples to Apples. Though it was a family game, clue always came down to my dad and I facing off to see which one of us would get the answer first. In Apples to Apples, it was a game of who got which card because we liked to play that they described us. It's a game of how well do you know your family members.
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...
