It’s Friday. That means another edition of Five Fandom Friday from geeky bloggers all over thanks to the genius of Super Space Chick and The Nerdy Girlie. Today’s topic: Favorites Games I Love to Play. I love games! All sorts of games, but I decided to focus my love on the the type of games that started it all – tabletop games. I’ve loved playing them since I was a kid. So here are my favorite games:
Ticket to Ride
True story, a friend of mine actually called me a really dirty name because she was so irritated I’d blocked all her routes. It wasn’t on purpose – they happened to be my routes too. And then we both lost the game to her husband. Go figure!
This is agame no one has ever heard of but everyone I introduce it too loves it. I got it as a Christmas present when I was around 10. It involves trying to brew the Elixir of Life while avoiding muggings, theft, and other dangers.
I love trivia of all kinds but because I’m especially versed in the Disney lore, I happen to love the Disney Trivia games (like Disney Scene-It) more than other games for the completely selfish reason that I tend to win.
Apples to Apples
Who doesn’t love to hear the completely ludicrous reasoning players give to defend why one card should be chosen over another. I always end up with a sore belly from laughing so hard and in my opinion that’s the sign of a great game!
Harry Potter Clue
Don’t get me wrong, I love the original version of Clue and I can get a little annoyed with all the licensed versions of classic games but this one is awesome. There are secret passages and the possibility that everyone loses! It just makes the game that much more intriguing to me.
While I chose to focus on more classic tabletop games, you know I love other games too. So, I included my top five digital games (without commentary, but let’s just say I get very addicted to all of them and can disappear for hours playing) as well. They are:
- World of Warcraft
- Mass Effect
- The Original Mario Brothers
- Plants vs. Zombies
What are your favorite games, tabletop or otherwise? I’d love to know.
