As a child I loved to play Ludo and later Monopoly.
In the early 1980’s I got hold of a Board Game based on the Science Fiction series “Dune”. It was kind of a precursor to RPG, as each participants had to play one of six roles: Atreides, Harkonnen, Emperor, Fremen, Spacing Guild or Bene Gesserit. We formed a group at work (Carl Bro) that would meet up once a month to play for control of Arrakis.
These days we play either various kind of quiz games such as Bezzerwizzer or Trivial Pursuit, creative or challenging games such a Pictionary or Scattegories, or personal games like Scruples or Ego, with friends and family.
