Old Board Games

I only played once and it was probably 2 years ago maybe, I don't remember....but yeah, it's pretty fun, I think you'd like it. Not very complicated to play once you get the gist of it.

Monopoly and Risk were huge staple board games in my family. They always ended in fighting and strife. Good times, good times...

A few other interesting ones we used to play as kids.

-4 way chess (uses 5 boards and 4 sets of pieces)
-LEGO Time Cruisers
-Balderdash
-Star Wars - The Battle for Naboo


Some older board games I’ve only discovered in the last few years... Scotland Yard, Clue, Axis and Allies (1942).

Holy crap, I haven't played Scotland Yard in ages.
We always had the game and never played it. Then some friends wanted to play one night. I ended up loving it, it’s a brilliant game. We played probably 30-40 rounds.

That reminds me that I bought Zombicide 2 many years ago and still haven't played it yet since I don't have a clue how to play it (I actually mixed the game with another board game I used to play that had zombies as the backstory of the game).

For me it was just Connect Four and Checkers.

Two simple games, but games I liked to play every once in a while.

Snakes and Ladders, Boggle (ooh which reminds me I need to order this one), Scrabble, and some games that I find in some bookstores now as "vintage" games, haha

We had this super ancient set of RISK. Probably 1970s at least. All the game tokens were roman numerals rather than the mini figures you get with any modern set.
