Brickset Bonusball Bonanza - Snowhitie editon - UK draw 15/09/2108

edited September 2018 in Everything else LEGO
Tatadaaa, TGIF, it's Friday night so Bonus ball time!
For those who don’t know the rules, write your answer below and the first 59 entrants will get a number. This is open worldwide.  And the bonus ball from the UK lottery on Saturday night will decide the winner. A CMF/poly will be sent to you. If you fancy hosting one of these yourself, shoot me a PM.
So, without further ado, on to this week's question. We've been playing some nice family games this week so I want to know, what is your favourite boardgame?
Ours is at the moment is Killer Bunnies (info here) . My husband and I used to play it when we were courting and collected the extensions. It's one of those games you need an hour the first time to understand it all and get the strategy but then it's really fun. Some nice graphics, lots of jokes and good gameplay. We always thought it would be better with more and now our son is old enough to play these kind of things, we now play it with 3 and it is indeed great fun again. He is always asking to play it!
Please no double posting until 59 has been reached and then you can discuss everythint to your heart's content!
Good luck all!

    I am really enjoying Sagrada right now. It's kinda weird, you build stain glassed windows out of colored dice and earn points in various ways.

    Just bought Exploding Kittens. My kid is having a blast when either me or my wife explode :D

    Have to go with Monopoly but a relatively newly discovered one is ticket to ride
  • TheOriginalSimonBTheOriginalSimonB Member Posts: 1,771
    As kids there was a neighbour who bought us games every Christmas and the ones I most remember were Mousetrap, Downfall, Buccaneer and Pathfinder. But my all time favourite has to be Scrabble.
  • terfstenterfsten Member Posts: 303
    Risk has to be one of my all time favorites! Also really like sorry.

    Trivial Pursuit... I always win!
  • Toc13Toc13 Member Posts: 1,144
    (still shuddering from the filth. I really need to teach some of you decent boardgames :-D )

    My favourite is Gloom of Kilforth.
    The idea behind it is to take the epic scale D&D campaigns & make them happen in a hour or two. Stunningly beautiful artwork. Oh, and my two older daughters appear

    I enjoy Trivial Pursuit and the kids always liked Sorry! And Trouble. 
  • Mr_CrossMr_Cross Member Posts: 1,672
    From childhood, probably Cluedo, scrabble or maybe Monopoly. Not so much of a board game user at the moment although I'm sure that will change when the kids are just a bit older.

    Have always liked card games, used to play gin rummy, whist, canasta etc. with my grandparents. Uno is a fantastic game, I used to play that in the pub with mates, we also used to play a lot of s**thead which is vicious but so, so enjoyable. Go fish and chase the ace (or lady) were popular ones too.

    I've got a copy of Creationary that I hope to try playing with the kids soon. I also got a vintage Connect 4 in the charity shop the other day for £2 which I hope will be getting played soon too.

    Thanks for hosting @snowhitie. I think I've become incapable of answering these questions with anything like brevity.

    Connect 4 - I played it for hours, very addictive!
  • redarmyredarmy Member Posts: 741
    Love winning at Snakes and Ladders against my 7 year old..
  • LuLegoLuLego Member Posts: 1,010
    A new monopoly game has been released recently here: cheaters addition.

    As I recall, we always cheated as kids at monopoly anyway.
  • kezkez Member Posts: 831
    +1 for Monopoly :-D
  • datsunrobbiedatsunrobbie Member Posts: 1,813
    Scrabble, without a doubt. 
  • DiggydoesDiggydoes Member Posts: 1,079
    The last Board Game i‘ve played was Monopoly,the „digital“Version (where you pay with a Plastic Card,instead of Bills),tbh def.prefer the Classic Version!
  • DB361DB361 Member Posts: 299
    Cards Against Humanity ;)
    Same here. Always enjoyed the slightly edgier side to humor, and the added sheer randomness makes this game for me.
  • Switchfoot55Switchfoot55 Member Posts: 3,280
    Well, as a father to a 3 year old girl, my current board game reach is limited. 

    Right now I'm an avid Disney Princess Enchanted Cupcake Party Game player. 

    ...I'm pretty sure my daughter has figured out how to rig it so she wins every time. 
  • adiemcadiemc Member Posts: 592
    Me and my brother used to play Stratego quite a bit during the school holidays.  We occasionally used to play Monopoly but that usually ended in an argument!
  • lluisgiblluisgib Member Posts: 225
    Probably for me is Shave the Sheep from LEGO Games. I really love how the sheeps are built and the way to play. Simple but funny

    I've had the most fun playing Heroica. I loved the way that game worked. I'm kicking myself for taking my Caverns Of Nathuz apart.
  • jmeninnojmeninno Member Posts: 1,164
    Exploding Kittens.  We have both the safe for work and non-versions.  Also have the Imploding Kittens expansion pack.  It's good stuff and hours of fun with good friends.
  • Speedman29Speedman29 Member Posts: 2,293
    Good question. I've recently got back into boardgames. Solo play I'm loving Castle Panic, need to get some expansions for it now. Mrs Speedman and I play Ticket to ride Europe together or with a couple of friends. And we all play Tsuro or Uno Extreme as a family. At work it's one of many variants of Fluxx. I prefer games that take an hour or two over epic day long sessions. Or those quick fire games like Fluxx.

    Thanks for hosting @snowhitie

    Trivial pursuit or Risk...
  • SumoLegoSumoLego Member Posts: 15,217
    RISK.  But nobody wants to waste seven hours playing.  

    We've recently been playing 'Life'.  I always end up being a lawyer for my career.  Blah.

    It only feels appropriate to say Lego Creatrionary.  ;)
  • kiki180703kiki180703 Member Posts: 1,063
    Cards Against Humanity is always fun :)
  • alldarkeralldarker Member Posts: 224
    Trivial Pursuit is still one of my favorites
  • Addicted2OxygenAddicted2Oxygen Member Posts: 467
    Settlers of catan. 
  • dmcc0dmcc0 Member Posts: 778
    Only one I've played recently is Pig Goes Pop, my niece and nephew love it!
  • CCCCCC Member Posts: 20,526
    So many. Monopoly, Carcassonne, Catan, Risk, Cluedo, Yahtzee, Snakes and Ladders, Othello, Triv, ... But just for the amount of time I used to spend playing it with my brothers when we were kids, Soccerama.

  • benbacardibenbacardi Member Posts: 712
    I love any games like Settlers of Catan, Carcassonne, Stone Age, etc... but since I've had two kids we've barely played anything :(

    We're always too tired in the evening, and my two year old is still a touch too young for Settlers...

    Currently we frequently play Haru Ichiban. Short 2 player game where you need to make garden patterns. Ideal when you don't have hours to play a game, and there's only 2 of you.

    Thanks for hosting @snowhitie!
  • ravendragonwingravendragonwing Member Posts: 193
    Favorite game of all time? Scrabble, closely followed by Scattergories.
  • Wicksy80Wicksy80 Member Posts: 596
    Scrabble!!! Only because it’s the best feeling in the world when I eventually beat my wife!
  • CoviCovi Member Posts: 334
    Settlers of Catan - Cities & Knights!!!
  • eggsheneggshen Member Posts: 596
    Sushi Go! Is a family favorite, and Survive! is also up there. We have fun with coorporative games too, so Forbidden Island gets played a lot. A couple of my kids and I are having a lot of fun playing HeroesQuest, which is essentially DnD lite.
  • Muftak1Muftak1 Member Posts: 547
    Trivial Pursuit.

    For some reason none of my friends or family will play my Star Wars Edition with me...
  • starwars4everstarwars4ever Member Posts: 489
    Poker. Particularly Stud and 5-Card Draw. Trying to teach it is a lot harder than playing!

    I can't pick a favourite. I just can't. So here's just a few to be getting on with, in no particular order:

    Scrabble, Upwords, Pictionary, Scategories, Sorry!, Taboo, Mr Pop, Connect 4, Downfall, Atmosfear and all the add ons, Hero Quest, Key To The Kingdom, Pass The Pud, Guess Who, Hungry Hippos, Labyrinth, Operation, Perfection, Trivial Pursuit Genus III, Super Quiz II, Articulate, Monopoly Mario Gamer, Pop up Pirate, Chess, Guess Who, Draughts, Cluedo, Jenga, Snakes and Ladders, Shhhh Don't Wake Dad! Battleship, Pacman (with a plastic pac man that swallowed white balls that sat in holes on a real playing board). Bizzy Buzzy Bumbles, Who Wants To Be A Millionaire, Blockbusters, The Krypton Factor, Doh Nutters, T.H.I.N.G.S including Grabbit & Sir Ring A Lot. Pass the Pigs, Boggle, Uno Roboto, Buckaroo, Kerplunk & Frustration.

    Not all of these have a traditional board, but lots of fun memories in that lot.
    There are definitely more! ;o)

    Absolutely love trivial pursuit. Genus IV is the best version though.

    Settlers of Catan. (I'm unsafe playing either Monopoly or Risk!) The boardgame version of Civilization was a great game too.
