I got in everyone's hostile little face. Yes, these are wooden cubes from boardgaming. Yes, I'm comfortable with that. I am enlightened.

I'll start off this list. Scattergories would probably be my guilty pleasure game. I love playing this game. Some of the debates about legal answers this game has spawned have gotten very heated. I like negotiation games and this game seems like no exception. A notable debate concerned the letter "R" for the category "Things in Space" the answer was "Right Triangles." Hilarious. I'm still upset about people not allowing my answer of "Grapes" for "G" "Breakfast Item" from a game that happened almost a year ago.

The idea of a guilty pleasure game is a little foreign to me. I mean, I think of a guilty pleasure as something that you're embarassed to admit that you participate in. However, every game I play is logged here, and is open for anyone to mock or criticize if they wanted. Perhaps if I were playing multiple games of Pretty Pretty Princess Monopoly I might not be so forthcoming but, even though not everyone likes them, I still really enjoy the games I play and I'm not really shy about it.

So this is the best I can do. I picked Mmm ... Brains! because of the frequency I've been playing it. Rikki has really latched onto it (it's one of her favorites now) and we've been playing it multiple times every month. I know it's not the greatest game design, and I know that Knizia has designed several better games, but I just can't help having fun every time we play.

I think I like this one more than my kids. It's actually got some very nice mechanics mixed in that keep it interesting.
Putting the board together is a pain, though.

Like Blott, I log everything, so I'm not hiding what I play. However, this game is certainly not celebrated here at bgg, but I think it's great. It's like Manhattan's uncouth and unwashed older brother.

I still enjoy a nice game of Yahtzee. Sure it is dumb luck, but it is fun dumb luck. Of course I could just play the sexy version called Reiner Knizia's Decathlon

I guess this would be mine. With the right people who share (or at least tolerate) my twisted sense of humor this is good every so often.
