The Holidays are a great time to get together with friends and family. What is your favorite game to play with friends and family? When I was growing up our family used to play: Monoply, Aggravation and card games like crazy eights.

I really love playing 'Cards Against Humanity', it can be quite offensive so its not for everyone!

All the best, Leia

Unfortunately, I'm not much of a board game player. I never really understood the point of them. There were a few exceptions though. I once enjoyed playing chess and Othello. I'm not sure Othello is called that in English. It's the Swedish name. Also, I'm a little curious about Go. I have heard of it, but never seen or played it.

#2 I've not heard of Othello, I can only think of the Shakespeare play, is it related to that?

All the best, Leia

No, it has another name in English but I hoped to get away with the Swedish one. 😊 I'll try to find the right name.

Reversi is another name that is nowadays synonymous with Othello.

I think I remember Othello. Did it have black and white tiles or disks or something?

I haven't played board games for a long while. When we are kids we usually got Monopoly out at some time. If you look at all the thousands of board games that have been launched over the years it is remarkable how the classics Monopoly and Scrabble in the UK have stood the test of time. In the current era I suspect the Christmas tradition of Board Games has eroded. I suspect that in most families the individuals are busy tapping messages etc on their phones (just as I'm doing now). We have lost something for sure.

Last week a colleague and I found that Monopoly has tried to adjust to today's society by creating co-branded versions, like Monopoly Fortnite edition. Not only the looks of it are changed, but also the scope of the game. No more streets, money or real estate.
