In my young days it was cards, cards and more cards. Cribbage to Brag! Though in later life I have done Monopoly and Scrabble, maybe Trivial Pursuit.

Haven't a clue what some of them are....getting older by the minute, lol!!!

Played all those over the years.

I don't play monopoly with the other half cos he makes his own rules up. I play scrabble on line.

The other half taught me to play chess when we were first going out but I never really got the hang of it - he runs an on line chess clan called the 'Yorkshire Laikers'

Only played Hungry Hippo's once at a friends whose daughter had the game.

Hopeless at pictionary cos I can't draw!

Chess is too complicating for me DM, like the sudoko thingy!

I like cluedo and scrabble and have played hungry hippo and jenga.

Many of the others go on too long for me - I am easily bored!
Chess - I cant even remember 'which moves how!'

Strangely enough when I was looking for something in a cupboard a couple of weeks ago the flippin' Game of Life fell out on me - bits all over of course! Not played it for ages - is it the one where you have to lose all your money?

Always a favourite that isn't it Mos!

We have a board game called 'Mysteries of Peking' which my two, at 38 and 35, still like to play - it's often at one or other of their houses.

I used to like a game of Dominoes every now and again, and also Connect 4 has always been popular in our house.

We do a Jigsaw (is that a board game?), once in a while as well but you're always worried that one of the grand kids will get their hands on it and before you know it, there's pieces missing.

Little devils.

Snakes and Ladders!



Yes Mos, that should surely be in the top ten I would've thought.

I like playing board games. But the old pencil and paper games were just as good - what was that called when you had to join dots up to make squares?

Hey yes, I'd forgot all about that one Caz, and I used to play that quite regularly. In fact I can remember spending time doing all the dots in straight lines across the page making sure that each line was in line with the one above and doing eleven dots across the page and then eleven dots down, leaving a perfect grid for our game. Not sure what it was called though.

Another one that we used to do with pen/pencil and paper was Hangman.


And also the simple Noughts and Crosses.

I played hangman on a computer screen on a plane this year! Not the same though.

Well that's not something that I've done Caz, because I've never flown, nor have I any desire to do so.

In short, the thought of it scares me stiff.

Back to games now .. I was never clever enough and quite frankly wasn't prepared to spend hour after hour studying a move to get excited over Chess, but I played the poor man's version quite a bit .. Draughts

The other half is head of the Yorkshire clan on an on-line chess site - but no, it never floated my boat. I used to wander off when I was trying to learn in my own little world. I know the moves and that's about it. Was never much good at draughts either.

If I'm honest Caz, I never really tried to understand chess because I knew that a game could go on for hours/days/weeks and I don't really like long games, including Monopoly or the game of Life etc, etc.

Good luck to anyone who plays Chess though, and one of my sons plays the game every now and again.
