And is so which ones?
The new board games seem so detailed and intriguing, much more so than when I was young.

I actually have some friends...who play boardgames with me!  

Settlers of Catan is the big one but we have a few others:

Pandemic: a co-op game where you all have to help each other cure the world

not really boardgames, more card games: Welcome to the Dungeon, Love Letter and Skull

I've also played Ticket to Ride and enjoyed that.

I love watching Shut up and Sit Down reviews of boardgames. Most of the time I won't buy the games but their reviews are great: https://www.shutupandsitdown.com/

Board games have come on quite a lot since Monopoly, Cluedo days.

Nowhere near as often as I'd like but I do.

Twilight Struggle is brilliant. Only a two player and takes a long old time to learn and equally, to play, but it is well worth it if you get off on strategy.

Risk is/was all time favourite but I think it's probably been trumped by TS.

How is that board game you invented in the mid to late 90s coming on? I remember it always used to be in the back of your just in case.

In the back of my?

Cash Football (a card-based, share trading game - trading shares in four football teams) peaked in popularity around 2002/2003 when it was played daily by three/four people for about six weeks. (It was around the time Newcastle and a few other clubs floated on the stock exchange and was thus a little topical)

I invented it with the intention of sending it to game manufacturers with a set of rules. Twenty two years on, I still haven't gotten round to writing down the rules and therefore it is yet to be exposed to the world.

Missed the word 'car' out in my breathless excitement. I remember chatting about your game and it sounded interesting. Pull your finger out, get it made and give me 10% for reminding you.

I really like to play Monopoly. Because playing board games it's very fun. You can bring your friends and play different games all day long. I think that it is connect us better than Internet games

I was actually looking at buying Twilight Struggle today (that and Dead of Winter). I think I'll buy the PC version and learn how to play and then see about getting the cardboard version.
