I am a huge board game fan. I have over 25 board games. 

A few of my favorites are...

1. Terraforming Mars
2. Settlers of Catan
3. Lords of Waterdeep
4. Dead of Winter 

For those who like board games, what are some of your favorites.

Settlers of Catan is probably my favorite of all time, but I haven’t played too many board games in recent years. These days my board game companions are my kids so the games have to be suited to their level. I’ve read good things about Stuffed Fables and I’m thinking about getting it.

Sequence, Cribbage, Scrabble, Backgammon, Mah Jong, Trouble, Sorry, Bananagrams, Othello are ones my wife and I play a lot. We have Clue and a couple of others that are in the rotation too.

We also like card games like Mille Bourne and Play 9, which is a fun golf card game. We used to play 99 with the kids on vacation to keep the entertained at restaurants. 

Cards Against Humanity is an adult version of Apples to Apples which is hilarious and not for kids!

I don't play too many board games but I do enjoy playing cribbage.

Our Meetup group uses Board Game Arena to play online games together.   We add discord and it's fun.

The various Catan games are high on my list.  I have a mixed-language copy of Starfarers of Catan -- a German copy of the original four-player (from before one could purchase it in English) and an English-language 5-6 player expansion.

I've been playing Gloomhaven with some friends every-other week.  Pre-pandemic we played sporadically, then in about May we went to playing online every-other-week.

Back in the day I really liked Axis/Allies and Shogun (sometimes marketed as Samurai Swords).  I don't know where my copy of the former is.  The latter I haven't played in over a decade anyway, and the latter the same, except a girlfriend (now ex, not because of this) wanted to play but she got bored during setup.

In college I played a lot of Munchkin and Bang! too.  Haven't played those since though.

I did play Bridge once upon a time.  I think I was even ranked as high as junior master (this only sounds impressive if you don't play bridge) at one point.  I haven't played in a decade.

I like the card game, Exploding Kittens.

Kill slow play. Allow walking. Reduce ineffective golf instruction. Use environmentally friendly course maintenance.

When on trips we take a magnetic Backgammon we can play on planes and train. We took the Amtrack from Michigan to Chicago, then on to San Francisco a year ago and played it on the train.  One of my favs as a kid was Chutes and Ladders

I second Exploding Kittens as a great game.   Unstable Unicorns is also a good one.

monopoly has always been my go to, but too many people I play with do “interest free bank loans”

Me and my kids really enjoy Exploding Kittens. My youngest (almost 6) just likes the pictures on the cards, and plays along, although doesn't quite grasp many of the strategic elements of the game, while my oldest (almost 😎 is quite good.

Some of the expansion packs that have been released are a little absurd though. I think the original game was fine as is.

The one with the Cat Crown has led to a lot of fun with us.   I think it’s best to swap them in and out.   My kids want to play with them all in at the same time and that’s a long game…

Trying to play with all the expansion packs is nuts. We did it a few times, but the games lasted over an hour so we use one at a time now. Imploding Kittens is my kids' favorite.

I'm not sure it qualifies as a board game, but I played a deck building game (online) with some friends last week called Dominion.  It was fun, and by the name I thought it was a board game I had played in high school but I cannot for the life of me figure out what I was thinking of.  It certainly wasn't that game.

Meanwhile my semi-recently acquired copy of The Fast and the Furious: Highway Heist sits with my older board games, yet to be played.  Hopefully that can change soon.

I played Kingdomino with some friends last week. The games are pretty quick and kids can pick it up fairly easily.

    • I stand just far enough away from the net that I’m not going to hit the frame in the follow through with the club. The ball shouldn’t ricochet back towards you with that net. The bigger problem is the wind likes to knock it down.
    • I will never stand within six feet of the net. Took a hard ricochet standing too close few years ago. Ball hit me on the nose bridge squarely making me pass out for a minute. Just saying...
    • Fortunately my wife doesn't care how much I golf. We are both in our mid 30s.  She doesn't play but loves tagging along and driving the cart.  Shes there to drink a few cocktails, look for balls in the woods with a retriever and make fun of my game.  We even went on a cruise to Bermuda this summer and let me play at Port Royal while she tagged along as well.    Im off weekends and she works 95% of weekends so those are wide open for me
    • Keep swinging in a simulator in the winter to stay consistent. That's a big if being I plow snow for the town and can be called into work at any second My last round last week outside, back 9 hit 5 of 9 GIR.   Amazing how much smoother a swing is when you're constantly playing.   Im still a 18ish handicap, short game betrays me from time to time.  Wish there was a better way in winter to improve the short game.  I have an indoor putting mat and chipping net with soft balls, works good for ball striking I guess
    • Right now I have a set of One Length Cobra F8s.   I really thought about getting the new Cobra LTDx One Lengths.   The PW of the F8 is 44*.   However the LTDx is 41.5*.   The 5i of the F8 is 22.5*.  The LTDx is 20.5*.    My question is, there will be a bigger gap between a new PW and my standard length 49* AW (yea a 44 to 49 is a solid gap as well but its pretty well gapped yardage wise).   And my current 4h will basically be the same loft as a new 5i.   Will it be a waste of time getting new irons without buying a complete new set of wedges.  Or is technology so far advanced in the shafts that the lofts don't mean as much comparing new and old irons.
