    Doh - didnt think of chess. Though I am better at TP - I'm a lousy chess player. Would love to be better at it though

    Axis and Allies.

    It has been made a computer game, too, though
    I never played that one. No computer can be as
    much fun as a group of friends.

    ( If you don't know it, check it out, it's like risk )

    She was so Blonde, she spent 20 minutes looking at the orange juice can because it said "Concentrate."

    When in doubt, read the FAQ.
    Then ask a smart question.

    Axis and Allies. I love that game. I think I was in
    elementary school the first time I played it. I played a
    game of it earlier this year that lasted more than 7
    hours...

    Anyway, besides Axis and Allies, I'd say Mouse Trap. Very
    creative game.

    Yes- Mouse trap. Very nice.

    Operation-- very risky, good feedback.

    Sorry- such a sweet irony.

    Cop-it- Good dorm game, less rules- more fun.

    Candy Land- If only it were real.

    Shoots and Ladders- I'm too afraid of heights to play myself but it's fun to watch others.

    Life- My first car- I'll never forget my wife and 3 kids.

    Monopoly - fantastic game

    Polyconomy - simalr to monopoly though you buy, sell and launch takeovers on others' businesses.

    Game of life - dont know - just one of those games

    Scrabble - one of the finest games ever ( you can play PROGRAMMING SCRABBLE - same as scrabble, but you are only allowed to use C++ keywords!)
    Monday - what a way to spend a seventh of your life
