    Re: What's your Favorite Board Game??

    Never really been a board game person. We played one heck of a lot of cards tho. My grandmother used to whip everyones behind at gin rummy. Rummy, gin, hearts, spades and sometimes poker.

    See. Semiconductors and batteries and stuff just showed up. That leaves a lot of us thinking fondly on Scrabble and Canasta and all the games of the 50's & 60's.

    Probably Monopoly and Clue were my fav's. I also had a game called "Masterpiece" about buying and selling works of art. "Dealer's Choice" was also a game I had about being your own car dealership.
    Nowadays its probably Cribbage and I do enjoy a good game of Trivial Pursuits. I'm a killer on remembering useless information.

    Holy old threads, nice to see some of those old member names in the posts. Makes you wonder how some of them are doing.

    I always liked playing the Mad Magazine Game.

    The 2nd amendment is not about hunting or shooting sports, it is about the citizens of this country having the means to protect themselves and the states from the tyranny, oppression, and misery of an over powering government. Modern rifles are a means for the citizens to stand up to an over powering government.

    Know the feeling.

    But I always got stuck playing Germany for some reason. If the guy playing Russia didn't get aggressive in his initial move, I had a pretty good shot at taking him out.

    Personally, I hated playing Russia. Fall back to Moscow, buy infantry is the safe play. Once you run out of counters, have all that infantry take 1 step forward and have the Americans invade the same turn from the west. With a little luck with the dice, Germany is toast and, if the Russians take Berlin and get the bank, the Japs have to worry about Russian tanks in China or Burma via India.

    An aggressive Russia in round 1 can be a bigtime spoiler in Europe and the Pacific. Attacking down the Asian coast throws the Japs off and they can't gain territory to up their bank.The Axis have to win fast before the Americans can build up and move it into theater.
