I had a set growing up and no one ever got hurt.

There were many many close calls though.

I had throwing knives and a .22 though. Being 10 in Texas was pretty cool.

Scrabble is one of the greatest games ever invented as far as I'm concerned. Perfect for all ages.
These guys missed two triple word scores for lack of an S or two.

I'm terrible at almost all board games with the possible exception of Trivial Pursuit. Probable because I've been told I have a very trivial mind. I don't think I've ever won a game of checkers or chess. Scrabble, well I'm not going to say how I did on the thread with the spelling quiz. I'll just say I'm extremely grateful for spell check.

I was going to buy a copy this week but all they had was some weird space themed one and I wanted the traditional version.

Sounds like a plan! I'm going to be in Waco so just make yourself at home and I'll be back with leftovers ASAP.

I've only played Risk online.

I've never convinced anyone to make a day of a board game with me.

I'm going out and buying a copy of Candy Land this afternoon to play with my kid.
