My parent's favorite game, but neither my sister or I care for it. I put in an order for the game Paperback, hoping that it can bridge the gap between our gaming habits. We should find out soon!

Euchre is one of my family's favorite card games, if we can get all four of us together, this is one we turn to often. The team aspect is fun and we all have a great time.

Aside from the classic Monopoly, this is the board game that I remember my family playing together. I think that it plays well with any number (plays 2-4) and we always enjoy the experience. Its great when you can pull everything together for a win not even you saw at the begining of your turn. A classic.

This was my favorite game growing up, and I still remember it fondly. We used to hold an annual game every Thansgiving with my Dad, Uncle & cousins. Though we don't play it much any more I hope to one day revive the tradition with my own family.

Rod Hockey, or Table Hockey, is great fun. When we were looking at our old house, we found one of these in the basement and my Dad and I played a few rounds and were hooked. We bought the house, but they wouldn't sell us the game, so my Dad went out and bought one. We used to hold annual tournements, my Dad would invite a buch of his work friends and much of the neighborhood to play. We would play in teams of two, and in the first year I was allowed to play in the tournament my team took the championship, beating out my Dad's team in the final game. Still great fun to play, but I miss the tournies we used to hold back home.

This was the first real hobby game I aquired when I got back into gaming a few years ago. I immediatly made my family play it with me. My Dad & sister enjoyed it, but didn't love it. My mom seemed indifferent to her one play, this is about as heavy of a game as she is willing to play. Every once in a while I can round up my Dad or my sister to play, but its tough to get them to commit to an hour to play.

This is the game I've had the most success with on my family. Though my Dad doesn't really like it, the rest of the family force him to play it with us. This definately my Mom's favorite hobby game, and my sister's 1 or 2.

For Halloween this year I hosted a Halloween themed boardgame night at my local bookstore. I picked this game up in anticipation and forceed my family to play it with me the night before so I'd know how to better teach for the event. I loved it. They, well, not so much. My Dad picked it up quick, but he thought the game was too long. My Mom took longer to pick it up, but she too though it out lasted its welcome. While I think my sister eventually picked it up, by that time she was more than ready for the game to end. Admittedly, the game was long I think at least an hour and a half, but that was due to the slow place of the players early on. I think that if we played it again while they still remember how to play it would take a more reasonable 45 minutes, but alas they won't let it touch the table. I'll note that when I played it on Halloween, while my Dad didn't play, he said that if the game we had play last night would have gone as quick as the one we played that night he would have enjoyed the game.

This is my Dad's favorite game, I got him to play it at the Halloween event and he loved it. My played it a couple times that night, but really never got the game down. A week later my Dad requested we play the game (again, at night), and so we did. My sister finally started to get it, but she just doesn't seem to like it and her play showed it. Though my Mom won (with many strategy tips from the table), she never grasped the game, and she didn't like it. Its one I'd like to try again when we all have a day off and we can devote our full attention to the game. I thought this would be the one we could all play together, but perhaps I just like to dream.

We played this at our Halloween game night, and both my Dad and my sister loved it. Only problem is that my Mom won't play it and it doesn't really work with 3 (I'm not convinced it would work well with 4 even if my Mom was willing to play it).

My Mom and Dad liked this one, but my sister is indifferent to it, she'd much rather play something else.

I had such high hopes for this game, I don't know if it was the latish hour or what, but it fell rather flat. My Mom and sister were having a hard time picking up the game, and by this time my Dad was only playing because my sister made him. I'd like to try again when everyone is more eager to play somehting, I'm just not sure they'll give it another chance.

But usually if I'm gaming when not with my group its the solitaire game B-17 QotS. I just love the theme and have a blast trying bring my boys through hell and back. I've lately purchased a few more solitaire designs to broaden my solitaire horizens, but between work and school I haven't had time to learn them and play them. I'm very much looking forward to the reactivation of the 281st, it was the reason I orignally hunted down the game before their hiatus this past year.

Otherwise I play some videogames, usually of the RTS genre. Some of my favorites are the Company of Heroes series, Age of Empires series and the Wargame series.

Some of my other favorite games include the Battlestations series, Halo series, Call of Duty 2, Battlefield series (esp. Bad Co series) and recently World of Tanks: Blitz. I also have and play many digital versions of games on iOS.

So far I've just introduced this game to my sister, and it has quickly become one of her most requested games. I have yet to introduce it to the rest of the family.

Again, another one I've only played with my sister. She likes it, but not the lengthy setup.
