Essential Board Games

I was in a conversation the other day in which the main topic - somewhat controversial - was board games.

Yes, board games. 

I move in strange circles.

Is there one which is as good as Scrabble?

I so look forward to my kids being old enough to play scrabble.

Trivial Pursuit is dated these days but was one of my favorites.

Charades inspired games like Pictionary are always fun in a family or party environment.

For two Chess, Pente, Mastermind and even Checkers are great.

Daniel,

I've never played Pente and Mastermind. Will have to check them out.

My children liked Clue. As adults, they still play Scrabble.

Risk. Nothing quite as satisfying as world domination.

Kurt,

Risk is great.

Its only drawback is that world domination requires a sizable chunk of time.
