    Isn't it board game?

    Anyway, my favorite was always Risk.

    Edit: And trivial pursuit and Scene-It

    the only problem with monopoly is that you need more than 2 people..

    I love those old Avalon Hill games. My favorite is PanzerBlitz.:cool: Finding someone to play against/with is a bit of a challenge.:(

    When I had my first kid, my favorite board game was Candyland.:rolleyes: I played that for hours with my daughter. We've worked our way up to Monopoly now.:)

    Change it? I thought it was a brilliant, clever title until you admitted that it was a mistake. :p

    Have you seen or heard of Monopoly playing cards? It's the most fun I had playing any sort of game in quite awhile. I forget exactly what it's called, but I'm sure it's on the official website.

    Instead of playing with a complete board, dice, money, etc, you have a deck of cards that represent all these things. The games take 30 minutes to finish. :)

    If you're looking for a two player game, I'd recommend The Settlers of Catan Card Game (not the board game).

    Lost Cities also comes to mind as a decent 2 player game. It's a little lighter than Settlers, I think. Faster too.

    Here's a good site to find reviews for board games
