I play a ton of games, but not many board games anymore.

- Monopoly (I have the Futurama version on pre-order, and I couldn't be more excited!)
- Chess (My wife has only beaten me once, and she refuses to play with me ever since then.)
- Forbidden Island (sort of a board game?)
- Cranium
- Zombies!!!

I play tons of card games.

- Munchkin
- Mag Blast
- Cribbage (I play this on my phone too)

I'm also a super nerd and love me some D&D. I met a bunch of people that played back when I used to work summer camp back in the late 90's, and we still get together and try to play once or twice a month. Still using the same outdated books and everything.

Has anyone ever played Mille Bornes? It's a 1964 classic car race card game that we used to play at the cottage with my parents when we were kids. Fond memories.
.
My grandma had Mille Bornes and we used to play it at her house all the time. I remember back when I was helping out with the Boy Scouts many years ago, they gave me a very ancient laptop to use that ran windows 3.1 and it totally had that game on it. I think that was the only thing I ever used that computer for.

Futurama Version? I've never been so excited.

MONOPOLY? - Futurama Collector's Edition

That's to cool.

Not really a board game either, but I always found that the adults had more fun playing Twister than the kids did

As an adult I am unable to play. All I do is laugh and I'm out pretty quick.

My wife won't let me dance in public for the same reason.

posy pitch

As a little girl, my sister had an outdoor game called Posy Pitch. It had pink plastic rings with scalloped edges (they were supposed to look like daisies) and green posts. You tossed the rings over the posts. It was similar to horseshoes.
My sister's game is long gone. She still talks about it!

We had games like that.

I like yard games quite a bit so I'll see if I can't come up with an adult version.

Lawn Darts were fun.
No longer available because they weren't 100% safe
