Board Games

Board games are a vanishing breed. At one point it would probably be safe to say that almost any home contained several board games that were played often. Monopoly, Scrabble, Risk and others were common pastimes.

Today, board games are much less common. Part of it can be attributed to other diversions; radio and television, role-playing games and collectible card games, video games and computers and the Internet. But, the games are still there and are still played by many people.

Here are some of the games in my collection. Some are older games and others are still produced today. I like them because of their themes, unique components or just because they are fun to play. Click on any of the titles below to find out more.

Two of my favorite boardgames were "Solar Quest" (Monopoly-like game based on planets and moons in the solar system) and "Tactics II" (a wargame using tiles)

I can\'t agree with your comment that board games are a vanishing breed. This is a real spring time for board games. The number of publishers, designers and players has been steadily rising for at least a decade and some board games are even finding their way into mainstream shops like ToysRUs and Waterstones.

Have a look at this link to see some of this year\'s new releases announced at the Nuremberg game fair (keep clicking on the \'Next Page\' link to see it all):

There has never been a better time to be a board gamer (except that we tend to be spending more than ever on these marvellous new designs).

Where have you guys been? You state that board games are a vanishing breed even though there is a renaissance in euro/designer games. Just check the over 40 thousand reviews/free expansions/geeklists/pictures/movies/extra rules etc... on Boardgamegeek.com. Boring/long/gimmicky/party games are on their way out. Perhaps, since you can't get good games at walmart or toys'are'us, it may seem that boardgames are vanishing but it's just that you need a hobby/gaming store or go on line to find the good stuff. Some of the funnest games you might try are ticket to ride, carcassonne, citadels, memoir'44, puerto rico, race for the galaxy, agricola, twilight struggle, power grid, battlestar galactica-and the list goes on. Happy gaming!

You should review King Oil. It was another great game from 1974, only to be issued once.

It's not unusual http://www.coachoutletstoreinoa.com/ for a visiting head of state to lay a wreath at the Tomb http://www.coachfactoryoutletmsna.com/ of the Unknown Warrior in London's Westminster Abbey -- but when it happens on Tuesday, the gesture will be anything but routine. http://www.coachoutletonlinemu.com/ This is history in the making.The commemoration by the President of Ireland, Michael D. Higgins, http://www.coachoutletonlineben.com/ will take place during the first state visit by an Irish leader to the United Kingdom. http://www.coachfactoryoutletmona.com/ It follows on from Queen Elizabeth's trip to Dublin in May 2011, http://www.coachfactoryoutletsnai.com/ the first by a British monarch to the republic since it gained independence from London in 1921.The countries are close neighbors but have a long, http://www.coachfactoryoutletori.com/ contentious, often violent history which has left thousands dead, among them Lord Mountbatten, http://www.coachfactoryoutletnos.net/ a relative of the Queen who was killed by an Irish Republican Army (IRA) bomb in 1979. http://www.coachfactoryoutletenm.net/ The very fact that the British and the Irish once fought with each other under the same flag is still very difficult http://www.coachouteltmon.net/ for many Irish Republicans to stomach.But the relationship between the http://www.coachfactoryoutletenm.com/ two countries has gradually normalized since the peace process of the 1990s. http://www.coachoutletboc.com/ That will be formally acknowledged when Higgins pays his respects at the tomb of an unknown British soldier who died during World War One when http://www.coachoutletstoreenm.com/ Ireland was under British rule.Diplomats from both countries are stressing the significance of the five-day trip. http://www.coachoutletstorecos.com/ Dan Mulhall, the Irish Ambassador to London, has said that Dublin is "now willing to look at the facts of history" http://www.coachoutletonlincaen.com/ rather than shying away from them.Meanwhile a Foreign and Commonwealth Office spokesperson has said that the visit is about acknowledging http://www.truereligionjeansftc.com/ the past but also "demonstrating that the relationship is moving on and looking to the future." http://www.truereligionjeansct.com/ The spokesperson stressed that both state visits are "pivotal moments in our shared history." http://www.truereligionjeanssi.com/ The Queen's trip nearly three years ago included a visit to Croke Park, http://www.michaelkorsoutletic.com/ a Dublin sports stadium where 14 people were killed by British forces in 1920 during the war of independence. http://www.michaelkorsets.com/ She also spoke in Gaelic during a dinner in Dublin to audible gasps in the room; http://www.michaelkorsoutletnio.com/ and visited Northern Ireland in June 2012, when she shook hands with former http://www.michaelkorsetoutletbeo.com/ IRA commander Martin McGuinness, now the province's deputy first minister.These were all highly symbolic moments that politicians couldn't create to http://www.chaneloutletmobai.com/ the same effect -- and Buckingham Palace is well aware of that. A palace spokesperson said http://www.louisvuittonoutletina.com/ last month that the Queen herself has become a symbol of the warming relationship http://www.louisvuittonoutletine.com/ between the two countries.
