I have Risk....but it takes so long, we end up only playing once or twice a year.

I don't recognize many of the games mentioned. Might just have to try a few of those. Hey! Does anyone have Risk? I use to....don't know if I still have it or not...think it got lost or tossed when moving or something...don't recall seeing it. Might have to buy another one. It was fun.
Most of ours are newer/geeky games, simpler board/card game versions of tabletop RPGs. (Well, Munchkin/Quarriors are like that.) Apples to Apples is very approachable, easy, and belly-slitting laughable. Highly recommend it.

Oh man we had huge risk parties at my parents like 15 years ago. All strategizing with others and stuff. My brother was always taking it too seriously though.

Can't say I've played many games since, but I like them. Just not too interesting with two people. The last I've played is Carcassonne, hubby has friends we used to visit pre-kids and we played that once a month.

I play all kinds of board games.

Chess - I like chess but I'm lousy at winning.
Stratego - Used to play this all the time but no one to play with now.
Super Rack-O
Scrabble
Monopoly
Sorry

I bought Risk years ago and couldn't even figure out the official way to play it. We made up our own rules instead.

We are geeky gamer types. We are part of a group that regularly gets together and plays games.

We do card games, board games, and table top rpgs.

As a matter of fact a couple of our group are indy game designers

We still play board games! And card games! It all cycles around in a rotation with video games.

Right now we really are into games that are "players against the game" style. We all play as a team and try to beat the odds against the game. Things like Pandemic and Forbidden Island. (We REALLY like Forbidden Island.)

We bought Agricola a few months ago and are still trying to learn it. I found Puerto Rico on sale at a Half Price Books a little while ago, too... but we haven't even been brave enough to open the box. LOL

As for card games, our favorites at the moment are Bonanza (which we just call "Beans") and Monopoly Deal.

We are heading to a friend's house tomorrow to play Cards Against Humanity, so excited! We don't play games very much as a couple, husband hates how competitive I am. We'll play occasionally with friends though!

Do they have anything/have they had anything on Kickstarter? That's where my boyfriend finds most of his games.

You'd probably enjoy Zombicide then. It's all about teamwork.

I HAVE to play Agricola. I've been dying to play, but miss all the game nights for various reasons.

Cards Against Humanity is hilarious! Love that game...especially inebriated.
