    I loved playing Guess Who as a kid. I used to fuck with my family and lie about the descriptions of my person. This would totally fuck up the point of the game and they would guess someone entirely different. I used to get a kick out of this. They didn't feel as I did and stopped playing with me.

    Monopoly is a fun game, but I cannot roll dice for the life of me. I ALWAYS roll shitty, and I can never buy property. This will lead to me quitting the game like a pissy little child.

    But when we busted out the Scrabble, my mom would kill us all. She was shockingly good at that game. My dad and I would come up with these shitty 3 letter words and embarrass ourselves. Mom would come up with these verbal monsters and get astronomical amounts of points. She was also amazing at boggle.

    I dominate at Trivial Pursuit. No one can touch me in my family.

    During freshmen year a couple of friends from our floor would get together every so often to play Trivial Pursuit. This ended rather abruptly as whenever my roommate read the questions for everyone he would invariably mispronounce certain words and we would all always correct him. Finally it got to the last straw for him when he completely fucked up "yarmulke" and we all corrected him almost in unison. He threw a hissy fit that I didn't even know he was capable of (I knew him from high school), overturning the board and kicking everyone out of our room. Talk about awkward for me considering it was my room also and I had to just sit there on my side of the room pretending like nothing happened.

    As for Trivial Pursuit, I love that game but sometimes it's fucking dumb. Even now that there are supposedly varying difficulty in the questions (at least in the version we have), sometimes on the easy questions I have no fucking clue, while the other team will get "hard" questions that are essentially gimmes. Maybe my knowledge of trivia is just skewed but this pisses me the hell off when I play.

    Monopoly. I love this game; I'm near unbeatable at it. I'm such a prick when negotiating deals that I usually alienate everyone I'm playing against and force them to team up against me the best they can, cheating and doing suspect deals, but I still manage to win. Maybe I should go into real estate or something.

    Connect 4 is by far my worst board game. I used to be pretty damn good at chess, so I should be good at thinking ahead and winning connect four, but for some reason I simply cant do it. I used to volunteer at a special ed afterschool program, and I swear to god a 8 year old special needs boy beat me at this game. I'm hoping he was one of the autistic savant types.

    Getting hooked on online scrabble is a great way to make people hate you when playing real life scrabble. Apparently, knowing all the two letter words and how to manipulate those triple word tiles (XI anyone?) does not make people want to play with you again.

    Hahahahaha...

    Excuse me, but is "Ex" actually a word in any language? It's a prefix that is generally accepted to mean a former partner, but not a real word. Ax is actually spelled axe , but I'll give you ox. At least that is a word.

    I bring up an obscure Scottish word and you throw back slang and misspelled words?

    Jesus, even the Canadians can do better then that and they speak gibberish.

    Now I can die happy. I've proved I'm a geek and pissed off the Canadians. That was my final goal in life.

    You would know, since you've known of Canada since Cartier actually landed here.

    Don't make fun of us. We have an army too, you know. Granted, it still uses cannons and our submarines are landlocked in the West Edmonton Mall, but don't make us get all 1812 on you again.

    Anyhoo, back on subject.... Bladerdash. Endles fun, especially when drunk. It's the filthiest game ever invented, because YOU invent the definitions of the fifty cent words they throw at you. This game can really bring out some inner demons, almost to a frightening point.

    But how many of you bitches played a game of Scrabble with a chick who placed the stakes at the winner getting top during the post board game sex? Anyone? Anyone?

    And . . . . . . . . .I'm pathetic.

    Risk was my favourite game ever. In my second year of university, a big group of us got right back into it, though every game we ever tried almost always ended in violence and a thrown board.

    I learned to play chess when I was 8, and still play it. The games today are totally different then when I was little and playing against my dad. Back then he would play against me, give me tips when I wanted to make a stupid move,then beat the crap out of me, then sit across the board pointing and laughing.

    When I turned 12, I first beat him. When I was 13 beating him became normal, and by the time I was 15 I won the majority of times and he didn't want to play against me anymore.

    Yeah. He totally instilled in me the fighting spirit I have now. No easy wins.

    I was a precocious kid, so the adults taught me to play Monopoly early. We didn't play much, though, and my family was not very good or very sneaky.

    Much later in life, I played a Monopoly game with two engineers and a physicist, and I realized what a terrible, horrible game it is. It's like fucking Survivor.

    It started out all right. I knew a lot of basic strategy which got me off to an early lead (buy up every property you land on, even shitty monopolies like the purples can be cash cows if you put hotels on them, etc.) I also knew the actual Parker Bros. rules, so I was able to straighten out most of the weird-ass "house rules" (i.e., fines go into a 'pot' and then whoever lands on Free Parking collects the pot) and so on.

    As soon as it was clear that I was the dominant player, the other three ganged up on me. One of the engineers, whom I had on the ropes, sold the remainder of his assets to the other for $1. The Physicist and the remaining Engineer then teamed up on me, using underhanded tactics like colluding so neither one exchanged money when they landed on each others' properties. (They did this within the rules through some very sketchy trades - the Engineer would land on the Physicist's Boardwalk with three houses, and would pay the Physicist. Then the Physicist would buy the Water Works from the Engineer for whatever the cost of the fine was, and then the Engineer would buy it back for $1).

    In adolescence a favorite spare-time game was Axis and Allies, which is like Risk, but about a hundred times nerdier. It is not quite as nerdy as like BattleTech or one of those games where you need calculus to figure out what happened during a turn, but it's close. Anyway, this game was completely messed up by the game's owner, who had a very interesting way of interpreting the movement rules. The way he interpreted it, it was basically possible for a fighter to take off from the Eastern U.S., bomb some tanks in East Germany, and then fly back to a carrier in the South Atlantic in one turn, which is complete bullshit. So the games never lasted long because my German tanks were constantly getting hammered by his bullshit Nuclear-Powered Never-Land Fighters AND sixty million GODDAMN RUSSIAN SHOCK TROOPS WHO ARE LITERALLY SHITTING OUT BABY SOLDIERS ON THE BATTLEFIELD AND FUCKGIHADFHADFHADFH WHARRRGLEEEE

    This is why I don't play board games anymore! FUCK YOU! FUCK YOU RIGHT IN THE EAR!

    Already been mentioned but Apples to Apples is a great social/drinking game and can also make for some hilarious subject/response situations. For example the green card (subject) is "clean" and the closest related red (response) card in your hand of is "The events of Hiroshima and Nagasaki." If you play enough you will come across this hand in the deck and it never fails. Just found the game online.

    Perhaps a little off topic but the game of dominoes called muggins is kind of a board game and great for drinking and shooting the shit. It took a little while for me to spread it throughout my circle but several of my friends own a set of "bones" now. Things can get awkward if you encounter a fellow player in public and he loudly inquires if you want to come by and do some "boozing and boning" later without catching how incredibly gay it sounded.

    I'm sorry, but this made me disproportionately angry and now I feel the need to shit my pants and pop a vein in my forehead.

    Focus: This is the only bored game I've ever one.

    I fucking loved Axis and Allies. There was also some medieval Japanese game made by the same folks, which we played a lot and was as good as Axis and Allies.

    Monopoly was ok, but I really got to enjoy it when we played in college and instead of 'fines' clothing would have to be removed. We had some elaborate system that anything under $100 was like a shoe or a sock, $200 was a shirt, etc. The first few times we played, we didn't get very far until we instituted the 'if you already took it off, you skate on the rent' rule.

    Stratego was pretty badass. I am also a fan of chess, though I'm not very good at. Risk was awesome. We also played Parchesi (sp?) and Sorry! when I was a kid.

    Jenga

    Jenga will continue to be my all time favorite game from child hood. It is also ridiculously fun to play while hammered. A friend once came up with the idea of creating two block towers and the first guy to knock them down had to shout "Jihad" instead of "Jenga." Did I mention he was an asshole?

    Risk and Chess were the only board games I played growing up. I have a definite suspicion that it's because my dad spent hours and hours playing risk and chess while spending naval tours under the sea, and hence couldn't be beaten.

    I remember how impressed I was to be playing decent when I began placing armies somewhere besides Australia (oh to be young).

    Motherfucking Monopoly.

    Played last night with probably the most bullshit variant rule ever: whenever you buy property, the price goes in the middle (also fines and whatever else). Whoever lands on Free Parking gets the pot.

    Bitch landed on Free Parking four fucking times. Completely hosed the game. Never doing that again.

    I then proceeded to school her soundly at first edition Trivial Pursuit.

    I always got the game out but then played with the pieces instead. Considering that I'm single, live alone and hate holidays I guess is pretty telling, eh?
