So I was playing Candyland and Don't Spill the Beans with my kids tonight and it was bringing back memories of when I was a kid and the games my sister and I played! Soo I was just gonna see what everyone elses favorite of all time games would have to be!

I'd have to say it's pretty close tie between Hungry Hungry Hippos and Operation for me!!! :)

We would play boggle, speed pairs, and cribbage. Another fam fav. is scategories :) One year we got Make Your Own Opoly and we made Blakeopoly, it was the best game ever!!! My dad lives in a trailer and we would always give him a hard time ;) I made one card read "Dad's house burns to the ground, property value increases. Collect $XXX" (can't remember $) It was hilarious! My dad was soo made at me for that card ;) now the game is MIA? Sad!

I liked Operation, Balderdash, Game of Life, Monopoly (my sister and I would have games that lasted for days), Perfection, and Jenga.

Anyone seen the new Lego games? We just bought Creationary for Mike for Christmas. Basically, it is Pictionary with lego. You have to make it out of lego as opposed to drawing it. It's harder than it looks, but we had GREAT fun playing it :)

I loved Operation and War. Life, Monopoly, Scrabble and Twister were also faves of mine. I've never played Chutes and Ladders and I don't remember playing Candyland either lol

My current fave is Scrabble... Speaking of, anyone play Words With Friends on iPhone?

Oh, and Some other favorites growing up were Yahtzee and Jenga. My 3 year old loves Jenga now too - if only for the fun of making the tower fall.

We were a Scrabble, Trivial Pursuit and backgammon family when I was growing up, but I used to love visiting cousins and playing Operation and ?Mousetrap. Oh, and I remember getting Connect4 one Christmas and playing it over and over and over...

We used to love playing Twister :) Monopoly and Scrabble were probably a couple of my other favourites. Oh, and Trivial Pursuit, although I was a bit older when that came out. But we used to have a lot of game nights when I was a kid. I try to do that with my kids now too.

As a young adult (as opposed to now), Pictionary was also a favourite - and used to be even funnier after a few drinks ;P
