Remember when they came out with Masterclue?? I wanted it so badly, and i never could find it later...until i went to visit my friend James in high school and HE HAD IT!!!
I also like Balderdash and Life - very good games for friends night out. Clue DOES get rather old, if you don't have just the right amount of people.
I will never get tired of that video. Man, yum.
As for board games, my current fave is Balderdash (has been a while), but I really, really loved Mouse Trap as a kid (namely because I didn't have it, and only got to play it at friend's houses in the summer).
also, your music? Last Five Years, ftw!
i think monopoly is my favorite, but it really depends on who you play with, cuz some people can make that game absolute misery. i also really dig cranium and (i don't know if this counts as a boardgame) chess.
Monopoly is totally fun, unless you play with cheaters. lol. ;)
Cranium totally rocks. And I never learned to play chess. I kick some ass at checkers though. lol

clue, monopoly -------- life is really good too, i haven't played that in years
HUGE fan of Scrabble and Trivial Pursuit. What can I say, I'm a nerd. XD Oh, but Trivial Pursuit 90's Edition was *terrible*. Only genius edition!...though I gotta get a newer edition, mine's from the early 90's and it's got a whole bunch of clues about the 70's and 80's. T_T
Haha!! I love the hell out of Trivial Persuit too.
scrabble... says the English major.
Hehe. I'm OKAY at scrabble, but other people in my life are AMAZING at it so it's not fun for me. haha
I love any trivia game especially those about movies (Scene it & Shout About Movies) and Encore. When I was away at school, every one would moan and groan about playing them because my friend and I would kick major ass.
Balderdash is fun, but I suck at keeping a straight face when someone reads my definition.
trivial pursuit pop culture edition is pretty great. next would have to be cranium - such a great game for those with short attention spans.
Oh, both are fabulous. ;)
Monopoly. That or Risk. Either games turn me into the most gawd awful bastard you have ever met. A unusual pudgy hybrid of Adolph Hitler and Donald Trump. (There's a visual for you...)
LOL! Wow!! What a scary combo that would be.
Mine's either Balderdash or Life.
Oooh, very American games! I've heard a little of Balderdash and have played the computer version of 'Life' - 'twas great! :)
But my favourite board game would have to be...Monopoly or Taboo! Great games! *Wants to play a board game now!* :P
Oooh! Taboo! I haven't played that in years!!
I always loved Risk or Axis and Allies. All the war games, really. Other than that, its Clue all the way. I call dibs on Colonel Mustard.
Stratego! Best board game ever!
Oooh, I haven't played that one.
LIfe, Risk....Card games - Skippo & Cribbage :)
Yay! Another cribbage lovers! :)
I know I know, but it's fun. Also the trademark didn't sell so now it's called IQ Connections :D
haha. ;) Never heard of it.
