Great list!  A lot of fun.  BTW, Scrabble was my number 2 too.

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/v/ZD0Z0CwRDJw" target="_blank" class="new_win">http://www.youtube.com/v/ZD0Z0CwRDJw</a>

Only heard this song for the first time a couple years ago, but this is still a great song.

D & D is a very fun game.  I DMed a few years back after playing 2 fun campaigns (one I was a drunken monk and the other I crossclassed to become a Bard-barian.  The latter was VERY potent.  I also had a guitar-axe I called my Cherry Axe) and it was a lot of fun, but we just never found the time to keep going, which was a shame, since I had some fun stuff I never got to (we did get to do a murder mystery though).

Scrabble is another all time favourite.  Played against my aunt recently.  She's a pretty hardcore player.  Only beat her once.

BTW, don't forget to vote for the next LoC, in the place to be:

There are actually a fairly large number of fairy pieces out there.

  • Gurps
  • Poker
  • Car Wars
  • Talisman
  • Magic the Gathering

I'm a bit surprised that I'm the only one who mentioned Werewolf. Especially since it's played on this forum.  And being advertised for on this page.

I don't think of Werewolf/Mafia as a tabletop game, same way I don;t think of spin the bottle as such, it's a social game but not tabletop.

Bill, you still had three of your top five place.

I must have missed something... [EDIT} Yep. Several pages worth... You people have redeemed yourselves somewhat, but are still more boring than I ever imagined :P

Kudos for having Ace of Aces on there, though I don't know that I'd count it as a table top game.

My dad bought Arkham Horror a while ago, but we never played it :/ Co-op games are pretty cool though.

Nice writeups by the way. I'm a fan of purple and orange as well; our house is decorated in it (which you'd know if you actually came to a QT showing  :angry:)

Pretty table-tastic list, y'all. Here's mine:

1.   Euchre (sad I was the only one to include this -- it's seriously addicting, but it needs 4 people to play it and they all have to be into it for it to be fun)
2.   Trivial Pursuit
3.   Apples to Apples

4.   Encore (it's a singing board game that is hard to find but a lot of fun)
5.   Liar’s Dice
6.   Catch Phrase
7.   Scrabble
8.   Texas Hold ‘Em Poker

9.   Pass the Pigs (you roll pigs -- what is wrong with you people?)
10.   Taboo
11.   Solarquest (Monopoly....IN SPACE!)
12.   Trouble with the Pop-o-Matic Bubble
13.   Yahtzee
14.   Risk
15.   Gin Rummy

16.   Golf (card game)
17.   Hungry Hungry Hippos
18.   Dungeons and Dragons
19.   Uno

20.   Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (The Role Playing Game)
21.   Rummikub
22.   Pictionary
23.   Mille Bornes
24.   Sorry!
25.   Settlers of Catan

We had Pass the Pigs. Sort of a surrealist version of Craps.
