Even though I've only been interested in 'hobby' board games for the past year or so, I've had quite a few games as a kid. Looking back on them, it's easy to see why I've taken to this hobby like a fish to water.

Add your own but try and keep em from your pre-teen years.

This is one that I still have. How could I get rid of a game with a box that's so freaking sweet? I mean, look at that thing!

I remember having more fun playing with the board than playing the actual game. I would set this up in my room and line up the explorers as the idol sent wave after wave of fireballs towards them.

In an odd parallel with my current gaming situation, I had a great game that I knew the rules to frontwards and backwards, but no one to play it with.

This is another one that I still own (along with the Elf expansion) but have played it, at most, 4 times in my entire life.

A couple years ago I was helping my Mom move when I noticed this game among her boxes of crap. "Gimmie that!", I declared. Taking it home and openening it up was a treasure. There was the door that got bent and taped to hold it upright, there where the character sheets with my friends name's on em from the one time they played it with me. There was even some hair shed from my old dog that passed away 7 years ago.

Here is one that the Geek helped my rediscover. Without this site I woulda probably never remembered all the great times my Mom would play this with me.

I actually remember getting this one with my Mom from a garage sale and playing it with her all the time. I can't remember very much about this game but I'll never forget the sound or breaking glass when the thief would jump out a window.

The very first game I ever bought for myself with my own money. At a flea market for $1.00 and yes, all the pieces were there.

Still have it, tho I've *ahem* lost some pieces. I've tried playing the online game, but I still like playing the board game.

I have a die cast, hand-painted fleet of ships i use instead of cardboard these days - and i even made rigging by coating black thread in super glue and then gluing them to the ships.
