I really enjoy dragging out the old boardgames when we're away on holidays. Sadly, this is the only time we get around to playing them, so keep them stored in our camper trailer. The exception is Scrabble which we keep in the house - love a good game of Scrabble!😜

Has technology replaced Boardgames in your household or do you still play Monopoly, Twister, Cluedo, Mousetrap or Trouble?

My kids are a bit young for most of the games you mentioned, by my daughter and I do play some simple board games for kids (Snakes and Ladders etc.) and I look forward to getting into more complex ones as they get older. My husband and I have tonnes of board games and card games that we like to play with friends but we rarely seem to have time at this point in our lives.
Same here Jennifer, we really enjoy cards and Boardgames but it's hard to find the time! Our kids are at the other end if the spectrum - they're past the age where they want to play games with the oldies!
We still play board games- much easier for the whole family to gather round a table than a screen!

favourites are monopoly, carcasonne, and our most recent op shop find!

(we are all adults btw)
What type of game is carcasonne, Rachael!
The fun kind :) You build the board as you go and colonise it with your "followers"

No we are more card games people.
We all got together in August and had a lot of fun one Sunday.
A lot of 'cheating' went on too!
We played UNO. :)
We still have fun with UNO too, it's a great game!
I love board games, but for 'some reason' people in my family Loose the little playing pce's :(

I love board games. My partner and I have several versions of trivial pursuit, but haven't had a chance to play for quite some time! I can't wait until my kids are old enough to appreciate board games!
I live alone so I do not play with family.

I DO play scrabble online however and love it. My teacher is a good friend of mine who is a champion and she gives me tips on what to do and what not to do in a game....have been watching her over years and learnt some excellent, unusual words.

I used to love monopoly also but no longer play this type of game -mostly now it is online games.

I play Words with Friends online, Finy - maybe you could give me a few tips! 😜
she gave me a whole lot of things -the main one is you do not use an S or a blank unless you can get a score of at least around 28 or more!
Do not hang on to z or x as it can hinder your game in the long run if you keep them waiting for a high score.
Shuffle those letters around to look for bingos....
just a few!

I got my 1st Monopoly set when I was in year 6, from my 2 older cousins as it had been theirs. It was in a beautiful gold box, & all lovely & tidy! I still have it, (I'm now in my late '60's!) but it's NOT all lovely & tidy now, unfortunately. I lost the box lid years ago. We're always looking in op-shops for more board games for our 2 young grand-daughters, (they don't have a tv in the house, & never have!) And also for our daughter who doesn't have any kids yet! My parents gave me my 1st Scrabble set when I was 11, & I still have that also.
