    Best board games in your house

    I was just wondering what kind of board games are out there that you guys and girls have a great time with.
    I just bought a game called "Snorta" which is absolutley hillarious and would recommend it for anyone.. it only costs 20 bucks which certainly beats out 60 dollar playstation games and gets the whole family and friends involved which in my mind is much better than blowing some imaginary person up in a video game.
    I just wanted to know what kind of board/card games you guys play that are lots of fun since I want to start up a good collection of games to play when I start my own family, which is not too far in the future.
    Here is my list of must haves-

    Apples to Apples (instant classic)
    Snorta (made my same company as apples to apples)
    Mad Gap (hard to understand instruction book, but once you get it, it's tons of fun)
    Guestures (Hillarious acting out game which will make anyone look stupid)
    Balderdash (Just came out with a new version, I have the orig. and it is GREAT)

    Those are my "must haves".
    Any other suggestions??

    Uno Attack is a cool variation of Uno.

    And I really thought Zobmondo was cool, but I could only get my family to play once, for obvious reasons (look it up and you'll see why).

    Thanks to Josdin for the awesome sig!

    Sorry! was one I was brought up on as a kid and easy for the kids to pick up the rules too.
    Another good one is yahtzee and isn't too long that would get the kids bored. Of course Monopoly is a classic as well though you need plenty of time for it, I always like buying Regent Street and all the railway stations ;D

    We have the new updated Monopoly that we got for christmas.We really like that one.
    Yahtzee, Life, and the Trivia Peresuit Jr. Because I can actually answer those questions, and the 90's version

    We also have the old Titanic Board game, that I found when I was cleaning out my Mom's storge closet.

    I love Catch Phrase, although it's not really a board game and another favorite of mine is Sequence.
    I also like some of the others that have been mentioned, Apples to Apples is a family favorite, and my family just got Mad Gab for Christmas although didn't play the game just had fun reading the cards.

    Re: Best board games in your house

    Yahtzee only cuz a board game at our house can tragically go wrong in so many ways. so we roll some dice and add up numbers, nothing really horrible can happen with a dye anyway.....unless you try and jam one down someones throat
    Yahtzee a game of luck and talking trash
