Default Card and Board Games

What card/Board games do you like?

I love cards, I have a big italian family, and we all like to get together and play cards. We play some games and Im not too sure of their popularity.
-Euchre
-Oh **** (Osh)
Aside from poker, I love these games ALOT. I also enjoy hearts, spades and cribbage.
I like some drinking games, but those are hard to discuss for the names are so variant with location...Kings(Circle of Death) and Smithfield are my favorites. If no one is familiar with them I will explain the rules.

I have recently got into some cool board games too.
Cranium is a company that comes out with some pretty fun games, especially when youre drinking. My favorite game by them is called Cranium WOW. Its pretty much awesome, although I enjoy all of there games for adults.
Some classics I like are Sorry!, Chess, Pente, Stratego, Candy Land, Mouse Trap, Yahtzee and Scategories. I can think of about 30 more I really enjoy, but they are not that cool for me to type. Im sure theres a few more I enjoy more than these, but this is a good start and wheres the fun for you if I name them all. Maybe List-Master-Flex will want to make a list.

Cranium i've played twice and the first time it was great but the second time was lame. Drink and large numbers help i think.

I own at Monopoly. I haven't been beaten in years, I wish it was real money

I like Munchkin and Magic: The Gathering .. Card games have almost exclusively been part of the nerdy side to my existence.

Munchkin is the most entertaining of the two. Me and the GF played it a lot with other friends the last time we were up in the arctic where there's not always such a lot to do in the dark season. The rules in the game are not very straightforward which leads to loud arguments with people getting up from their chairs, shouting across the table .. it's awesome!

Man, I tried to play that Magic game when I was in sixth grade, but couldnt figure it out and didnt know too many people that played it so it was a lost cause.

When I was 16, I had a girlfriend at 18 who had started a cafè with some friends. This was possible because this was a norwegian small town and they basically asked the office of culture if they could start it up in this public building that had been used to host a cafè before, but had since been left unused. The office said "sure, go ahead" and so they started up a little coffee place where I ended up working on and off for about 4 years. Me and my friends also went to the office of culture and said we wanted to start up a little club for people into card/board/roleplaying games and host weekly meetings in that cafè .. they gave us money to buy in a few games (we spent them on RPG books) and we had a lot of members.

Every friday night from like 7 in the evening to 3-4-5-6 in the morning, the cafè was full of people playing all kinds of games, RPGs, Robo Rally, Junta, even Warhammer on the pool table. We sold pizza, fizzy drinks and coffee of course until we were too immersed in the games to bother ..

Man, those were the days

I like a good game of blackjack or poker with my flatmates every so often.

As for board games the only one I still play is chess (oddly enough I think I've actually got worse at it with age as well).

I used to play a lot of chess when I was a kid .. Me and my friend developed our own tactics because we basically only played against eachother. Later in life (at the cafè I mentioned) when I tried playing against this other kid who had won a championship, I beat him two times in a row out of the two times we played.

I think he was probably unfamiliar with my tactics

Like you, I feel worse at it now, though. I feel like the opponent's possibilities have become harder to spot.

I love beating someone who I know is a lot better than me like that. The amount of times I've fluked my way to unlikely pool victories

The thing about chess is I reckon it takes a certain kind of mindset, and one I've long since neglected in favour in writing, music, cigarettes and alcohol.

That is awesome, is this still possible? I mean, to go to the OOC and easily get funded for things like that? I had a friend that played that Warhammer game when we were young and it looked real cool. I helped him paint some guys and build a big mountain that he said he would play the game on. I never bothered to learn, but the fact that you had to build your own pieces blew my mind.
