Boardgame Chat

I decided to take this out of the Summer Plans thread before it got out of hand.

Just so ya know, Exxie, there's a difference between Monopoly, Whatever Edition and whatever-opoly.

I don't know if you've seen the games like Dog-opoly and such?

They're made by a group called "Late for the Sky"...it's evil!!!

They've changed the prices of everything, you start off with 1750 instead of 1500, and all the colors are switched around on the board! I know this is so parker brothers wouldn't sue them...but I asked my mom for a $30 board and found out it wasn't parker brothers later...

It was so sad... *whine*

Oh, I have a really rare board! There were only 100,000 made. I know that sounds like a lot, but they were only given out to labs throughout the US a couple of years ago. It's the Fisher Science Centennial.

There's another similar to that story that was only given out to workers at the Coca-cola factory. It must be mine!

Right now, my collection includes:
Monopoly
Monopoly Here and Now
A reproduction of the original monopoly
Fisher Science Centennial
Pokemon (*cuddle*)
Star Wars Ep 1
Star Wars
(and I have a third SW, but forget what it's called)
Disney
Family Guy

And I have a neato Quillow that I won at one of the rabbit shows. I almost refuse to part with it.

*Reposts from old thread into new thread*

Just got the ordinary Monopoly.

Although I was thinking of getting a simpson's monopoly set I saw yonks ago...

But I don't actually play monopoly much now...prefer other games...like Munchkin...

I do know. =).

Still... we can't play them in our house =P.

Woa... that's alot of monopolies.

we have alot of board games... I would list them... but I can't remember them all...

Having uncle who owns a Games Store is good =).
Wukei

*pouts at Exxie*

Your uncle, he gets monopoly at a discounted price, right? So he can sell it at a normal price?

*becomes Exxie's new best friend*
Exachix

*Hummms*

I don't actually know if they are stocking any monopoly at the moment.... We didn't (or I didn't... but I wasn't paying attention) see any the last time we were down... but yes they would.

Another Uncle/Aunt who also owns a game store may stock them....

Hmm...Board games we have...

Monopoly
Cluedo
Solar Trader
D&D Boardgame (Brother's)
Mousetrap

Errm...those are the ones that come to mind at the moment...*Goes to have a look*
Wukei

Ah, I've got more board games, and probably more monopolies that I've forgotten, but I don't really care about my other board games...


Exxie...you've gotta tell your aunt and uncle to be nice to me...that I'm you're best friend ^.^

I figure I'm gonna be spending thousands of dollars on Monopoly items. I try to get my dad to go to United's daily right now so I can win that t-shirt. If I don't win one, maybe I can convince one of the people that work there to sell me their shirt when the contest is over...
Timberwolf

I've only ever played it about 5 times. There was nearly blood between my brother and my dad.

Thank you my elder sister's boyfriend trying to get on my good side! He is a sweetie anyway and I like him. He cut my steak up at a restaurant when I was like... 9? Liked him ever since. Good thing she married him!

^_^" Ok, that was besides the point.

Settlers of Catan? Suh-weet! My big bro had that game and we loved it. I don't think I have it, but I should. I have all of his D&D books. All 2nd Ed, but I still love them!

As for board games in general... I have no one to play with. ^_^" They don't like board games.

Boardgames...I have a couple of fairly unusual ones, found in the annual charity sale I help out at. Weirdest ones include:

Crystal maze (As hard as it was for the players in the TV series.)

Doctor Who Battle for the Universe (Still not sure why I bought this. Had it for years and never played it.)

Axis and Allies (The original. So...many...tiny...pieces!)


And that's just the weird stuff I have, my parents have several cupboards filled with the weirdest boardgames I've ever seen.

I have mah jongg, I have the pieces and a book on how to play The Four Winds. I enjoy playing it with my father and Kendra and both of them are pretty good at it.
Exachix

We have Mah Jongg too! *snap* I knew i recognized it when Arha taught it to Lyrak =P.
Wukei

Mah Jong is fun ^.^
Castaras

Mah Jongg! That's the game I was forgetting the name of!

Mah Jongg is awesome.
Exachix

Heh.

*idea* we could have a forum game of it... but... we'd need someone to be there to be the *dealer* and so we don't cheat.

Seafarers! That game is awesome, and I haven't played it for yonks!

Some of my favorites include Risk, Othello (although it could be classed not a board game), monopoly (of course) and... some others.
Wukei

I actually don't know how to play the multi-player version.

I have a Mah Jonngg set but don't have anyone to play with and don't really no how to,

If there's a forum game, count me in though
Baeleck

I haven't a clue what the hell Mah Jongg is, but it sounds... interesting, to say the least.

*To thar wikipedia!*
Timberwolf

It's kind of like whist mixed with poker with some rules that don't come anywhere else played with tiles.
Exachix

No.

It's kind of like Gin Rummy... with tiles and specials.
Castaras

And chinese symbols.

Characters, Sticks, and something else which I can't remember.

And Dragons. And Winds.
Baeleck

Looks interesting. You say it is a bit like poker? Because I am epic at poker. Very Happy
Timberwolf

I just remember being reminded of poker.

Seems a bit like bridge too from my limited understanding

Like no other game is kind of right I guess.
Exachix

Ok... Rules Learding time.

There are many tiles.
4 each of:

1-9 of Flowers (or dots)
1-9 of Characters
1-9 of Bamboo (or Sticks in Cassie's version)
And
Red-
White-
and Green- Dragons
East, West, South and North winds
136 tiles so far... that seems a bit too many... hang on.

There are also 4 flowers (Not to be confused with the 1-9 of flowers) and 4 Seasons
Winter - (Flower)
Spring - (Flower)
Summer - (Flower)
Autum - (Flower)

Each Flower is paired with a Season.
I can't exactly remember which go with which.

That post was going to explain the rules... but I need to type them all up first =).
wxdruid

Yeah, I don't have my game here with me
Moozy

What about the OotS board game? No one mentioned it!

Though, admittedly, it does get boring after the first couple of games. But it's good for when you have a party, you get up to five other OotSers to play a game with all six characters.
Vael

Hey, has anyone else played Twilight Imperium?
It's sort of like a futuristic version of Axis and Allies- but more complicated.
