My fave board game when I was a kid was Trouble. It had that cool pop up bubble thing in the middle that frankly was more fun than moving pegs around the board.
Board games are cool and hip again apparently! But it also involves having friends that can get together in the one place at the same time and that’s just a nightmare I can’t be off dealing with right now. I mean, have you tried organising friends to come around and play games? First of all it involves having friends, and sheesh. Then you have to clean up the house and find room to play. Then get food for them! And drinks! And maybe dessert. Then you gotta figure out a game that everyone will like and not have to spend the first two hours explaining the rules for. Look, just leave me to a quiet room and a pile of comic books!
