Even as a kid there would have been better board games than Monopoly. Most games are better than Monopoly. With just a deck of cards you can already play dozens of games that are better than Monopoly.It is funny to me how many of the board games I used to play as a kid when we were bored and stuck inside, are now video games.
Still no Kingmaker - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kingmaker_(board_game) - but a lot of the others are. I still wonder why... we had to play them, we had no choice.
You take that back! Mouse Trap is way better than Monopoly. Setting up chain reactions is always fun and is made even better by screwing people over while doing it.There were worse games than Monopoly to have to play
Mouse trap which is probably hard to recreate as a PC game
Ludo - OMG, its online.... why people?
RISK - which I know is online already
UNO - which is also online.
You have 10000's of video games and people want to play these.
Although, it depends on age of person as some just want to recreate youth.
Some games from my youth strangely not remade now
We had a Dutch variant of that as well, though ours was about biking. It's better than Uno purely because it gives more opportunity to screw people over.
I'd love to try a proper war game some time, but I doubt I'll have the time or room for one any time soon.Admittedly my only memory of Mouse trap is from playing it at my Grandmothers when I was a kid, and that was so long ago we aren't even sure what decade it was. So I haven't played it for most of my life
No, RISK isn't long, Long is when it takes a day to set the board up. My dad played War games like the one below,
When it takes 30 minutes to have 1 turn, you know its long
Makes me remember the past. I wonder if we still have that anywhere.
