    I enjoyed playing Games of the Generals in the early years of the new millennium. It is like chess although the pieces are soldiers with military ranks. You see the rank of your men but not your opponent's men. The entertaining part is when a player goes for a kill, either side could emerge winner in that battle. I don't know if the game still exist.

    Never heard of that one.

    My favorite is the classic Monopoly that I still play when my family gathers. It's really fun if there's like 3+ players. I remember when I was a kid and whenever I was the bank, I would cheat so much. I constantly took extra cash when nobody was looking.

    I also loved playing Snakes and Ladders with my grandparents. It was too easy beating them :p

    I'd have to say that an entertaining board game would have to be Payday or Life because they're both very fun and you can play for as along or as short as you want.

    Growing up, my household favorites were Sorry! and Monopoly. Both were incredibly fun. Monopoly, however, would stretch in duration sometimes a bit too long. Sorry! was a perfect game for the time and all. My dad introduced that game to the family and it instantly became a classic. We didn't play a lot of board games growing up. Mainly because we were too busy battling it out on GameCube! But these two bring back good memories.

    You can't go wrong with the classics like The Game of Life or Monopoly. Especially since there are so many different variations of them.

    It seems like every brand/TV show/movie/whatever has its own Monopoly. Look at this list!

    Monopoly, it's fun and exciting game, especially if you play it with your friends and family. Main problem is the games takes a few hours to be over, I've never finished a game. We just set a time then count who's the richest one and he wins.

    I love board games, I've had several games. I liked to play chess, but I think my favorite game was Monopoly.
    I spent hours playing with my brothers and best of all was that I always won!!:smile:

    I have played a lot of board games specific to fantasy and the mythology genre. The dungeons is one game that I have played a lot. I have enjoyed settlers of katlan, monopoly and few other games. I think puzzle and the mythology games are fun. Some of the games like bejewelled are good too. Time spent well this way.

    My friends and I all love board games. Cosmic Encounter is one of our favorites. It's a game of random characters, skills, and chance. For all of us, it's a chance to be a cunning jerk. We also like Cyclades and Ticket to Ride. All are fun to play with groups of people and can even be fun to watch because it's so entertaining.

    Try risk! entertaining and a total challenge, also try with clue, that's fun with family or friends. I don't fully recomend Monopoly, it makes all of you fight each other.

    Have you tried UNO? It's simple enough to fit in any ocassion and deadly enough for you to hate whoever you started playing it with.
    No, for real, expect things to get pretty intense if you happen to have a competitive friend amongst your rivals.
    Or if you want to find out who's the worst person in your group of friends, go for Cards Against Humanity as well.
    ... Overall board games can end up in WWIII. if you're not careful enough.

    That game sucked in my opinion. It was always obvious where the general was, since players mostly heavily defend it under layers and layers of soldiers. Nobody would play mind games since they are too paranoid with putting the general at the flank or at the vanguard. It's always under layers and layers of protection, which really makes the game boring and predictable.

    My favorite board game would be Cluedo. I used to have the classic Cluedo that used to belong to my Uncle when he was a kid and I thought it was a really creative game. Me and my mom used to play it a lot back before I lost it. I thought the game was very clever, guessing who's the killer and all, and it steps away from most board games where the competition is all about a race to the last tile or the last minion.
