I love board games, but hated monopoly! Whenever I was forced to play, no one knew the rules, and made up their own ones, like having to go round the board once before buying properties, landing on Go gave you £400. Taxes and fines went in the middle and landing on free parking let you 'win' it.

My favourite board game was Talisman. Played with those too young to grasp Dungeons and Dragons.

@regaeforth1976 Yes it has progressed from snakes and ladders now and we play monopoly every time the family get together

@frenchielove stay with it for a few more years and then the monopoly board will make a re-appearance

The last time I played a board game was a good few years ago - nowadays, most games have gone to consoles and the like.
Especially handhelds such as the Nintendo DS and Switch era.

@regfaeforth1976 I do actually remember KerPlunk, I used to play that a lot when I was younger...

Unfortunately we got rid of our KerPlunk many years ago, and that era is over for me...
