Played some fun board games over the weekend, which reminded how much I used to love board games as a kid. So, figured I'd take today's post to rank, in arbitrary order, my favorite childhood board games:
Monopoly – Every child needs to play this, it teaches so many valuable life lessons: winners gloat like assholes, losers have to stick around until it's over, and the uncaring capitalistic system will only punish you for your careless deeds.
Candyland – It's candy. There's a land of it. Whaddaya need, a road map?
Operation – I've heard this actually gets you some Pre-Med credits in a couple of schools. Seriously.
RISK – War reduced the whims of an untrained commander and the roll of a die. Sounds about right.
Battleship – War reduced to “YOU BASTARD, YOU LOOKED AT MY BOARD WHILE I WAS IN THE BATHROOM, DIDN'T YOU?!”
Connect Four – I'll be honest, I never finished a single game since I would release all the pieces just before my brother beat me at it. After the third time, he caught on to my winning strategy.
Sorry – Love means never having to say you're sorry, ya dingus!
Crossfire – Ha! You fool, nobody owned Crossfire! But now the song is stuck in your head!
