    Not computer games; there is a separate forum for those.

    Our family is big on playing board games, and we probably have close to 60-70 of them. I have always loved Clue, and a newer game called Mystery of the Abbey, which is very Clue-like, but set in a Medieval Abbey.

    Which are your favorites?

    Speaking of games and politically incorrect; most of you are probably too young to remember, "Rock'em, Soc'em Robots". That was great! 'Knock your opponents block off'. :laugh:
