    I would definantly have to go with Scrabble. Its fun, challenging, and excercises your brain. Plus you get to learn cool new words!.

    I love Mousetrap, I think it was more for just watching the contraption work than anything else.

    Ouiji is the only one that was ever fun. Though it was fake, still neat.

    I don't like Scrabble. I'm a dick so I always use like 3 letter words and kill the game for everyone, including myself.

    I like Chess and Pictionary a lot. Especially Pictionary.

    Best of ALL TIME? Chess.

    Best modern board game (Parker Bros style)? Risk.

    I have one of these that I purchased for $.50 from a Thrift Store. I still search the dusty corners of my mind for the reasoning behind said purchase. I've never played the stupid game.

    I'd have to go with chess, even though I don't play. :)

    I personally like Scrabble.

    I don't really like board games. I like to drink and play board games. But it is not the board games I enjoy, it is the drinking and making fun of the people I have to play board games with. I could do that without the board games.

    Chess is for people who arent smart enough to handle the paradoxical simplicity of checkers.

    Risk is the only game I know of where you can start off playing as friends, but as the game ends, you all hate each other...

    Chess probably. But Trivial Pursuit and Risk are two that are awesome. I mean what is better than a game where you can dominate the whole world?
