I was talking with Amber earlier and comparing the old board games we use to like and play all the time(before we met eachother) and I'm wondering what board games you guys use to love and play a lot.

My list:
Hungry Hungry Hippos
Shutes & Ladders(sorry for spelling, can't remember how it was spelt)
ConnectFour(it can be classifed by a board game, my grandma said so when I called and asked her :tongue: ... :lol: )


And for those that want to say Rock'em Sock'em Bots, it's not a board game, you know who you are :wink:

don't break the ice

Oh man, that one never crossed my mind. That game was crazy and fun.

What was the name of the game that you had thin plastic sticks things and stuck them in a see-through plastic tube and marbles or something were in the inside and if you pulled a stick and marble dropped, you lost.

Does Uno count? The Mor loved Uno. It's not a board game, but still a classic game.

Mancala is awesome. And also I don't know how it's called but that game where you have a picture of a guy and you say does your guy have hair on his face, and pull down pictures... dare I say Guess Who? (it was called adivina quién in spanish which means that)

Clue was a good one too.
