As it was said on a perticular shopping channel today/yesterday as they were trying to sell a tablet " they are called board games for a reason".

What about angry birds in space. Smile

Apropos of nothing at all: http://www.independent.co.uk/life-style/health-and-families/features/the-10-best-board-games-8424229.html?action=gallery&ino=1

My favourite boardgame, although it's not exactly a Christmas classic, was the german classic Formula Dé, F1 racing in a boardgame, absolutely brilliant and dozens of track expansion packs.

RE: favourite board games for christmas

We got Where is Moldova a few weeks back - it starts off as quite a lot to remember (especially when you'd drunk the amount of wine I had the first I played), but once you've played it a couple of times, it's easy to remember and it's quite enjoyable. Two good things about it are (a) it's not just knowing lots of general knowledge / having some sort of skill - it helps if you do, but the game is also based on chance, so everyone has a chance of winning; (b) games generally last about 1 - 2 hours, rather than 3 - 4 hours some games can take which can be a bit much at Christmas time!
