What games do you like to play?  I'm not talking sports.  I'm not talking video games.  And I'm not talking about activities.  I'm asking about board games and card games and other games you can play while sitting at a table having a conversation with some friends.

 

A lot of people here play chess.  I enjoy poker (texas holdem), reversi, dominoes, and blackjack.  I have no idea how to play backgammon, but think it would be fun to learn.  Also, Hungry Hungry Hippos kicks some serious ass.

insert maniacal laugh here.
omg, i just fell in love you guys.
Inconceivable!
Yes. Best board game out there. I actually play all the time online. www.conquerclub.com is a great site for games. It has around 100 different maps with tons of different ways to play
check out www.warfish.net
I became a pinochle fan while in the stir. I also played spades but that stayed locked up with the other guys. I'm a fan of most board games, such as scrabble, that build one's mind.
My family and I have been playing Liars Dice, but Lunch Money is an all time favorite.
Go (Weiqi, Baduk), a 4000 year old Chinese board game. The number of variations in Go is somewhere around 361!, which is around 8*10^768.
Classic Mahjong is a great game to play when I get bored of poker
We have a lot of games here, too. I like historical games, like hnefatafl, Royal game of the Goose, Fox and Geese, Nine Mens Morris, bagatelle and others. Surprised no one has said Checkers yet. I play the occassional game of chess (i stink) and I wouldn't mind playinga few of the historical variants of chess, such as Byzantine chess, which is played on a circular board. We also play Monopoly a bit around here. The Crokinole board gets a fair workout around here.

I have a few mechanical action games, like a table hockey game, and a table baseball game. Those can be fun.

For card games, I like euchre, never could quite learn bridge, and cribbage. My favourite poker game is Lowball, where you try to get the worst hand. My favourite card game, however, is solitaire. In my experience, this is in fact a social game to play, because as soon as I lay out the cards someone will show up and start telling me what moves I should make.

Anyone remember lawn darts? Now that was a manly game. My older brother and I used to play all the time. He made me play 'goalie'.
