What Board Games do you play? Just started getting the itch to play them.
Got a couple new ones this past Holiday season.
1. Qwirkle.... Fun abstract game. Match shapes and colors to earn points.
2. Ticket to Ride... Even more fun than Qwirkle. Board is a map of USA and southern Canada. Earn points by connecting cities.
Just bought Carcassone... and have Caylus and Ticket to Ride on my iPad/iPhone.
Caylus is pretty heavy duty strategy and takes a long time to play for a iPad game.
Ticket to Ride is fun and quick on iOS. Great presentation.
Can't wait to play Carcassone. I remember I played it on my XBox a couple years back.
Anyway... I am just beginning to get into it. Xbox and Wii are getting less playing time.
I loved nuclear war back decades ago.
Nuclear War (card game) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Settlers of Catan is an oldie but goodie.
Ticket to Ride looks fun. wish the kids were a little older to be able to play it.
How old are your kids? Played with my 7 and 9 year old. The only problem (or is it learning experience) is them asking where certain cities are and how to pronounce them.

Ticket to Ride is pretty fun. Settlers of Catan and its expansions can be a ton of fun. My siblings and I have combined each of its expansions as well as the 5-6 player expansions to create a massive game board and created a few of our own rules to make all the additions work. Monopoly is always a classic and if you enjoy it, I recommend Mega Monopoly which has a larger board, more properties and a few little things that make it a bit more interesting than the original. We're fans of more in depth games that can take a while and we love to tweak rules and add stuff to customize games in our own way.
