While board gaming has been my primary hobby for only about 10 years now, I have been playing board games my whole life. I'd like to say thanks, Mom--my girl gamer role model. These are the games I remember playing with her growing up. Whenever possible I have selected the game cover of the edition we owned.

I vividly remember playing game after game of backgammon whenever I had to stay home sick from school. I don't think I ever beat her. I have recently started playing this again, so Mom...watch out.

Unfortunately this game requires 3 people, so I would have to beg my brother to play with us in order to get to play. I still love deduction games and I still have a hard time getting people to play them with me.

Mom liked to practice her French so I am not surprised she owned this one. This is one that my brother and my Dad would play with us. I guess it also got me used to playing games with foreign text.

You will see a trend of abstract strategy and deduction games--my clear favorites even today.

I think this might be my favorite childhood game. I loved the book My Secret Garden and I used to pretend that I had discovered a secret hedge maze and I was trying to find my way through it. I spent many hours with this one just making up mazes when I couldn't get anyone to play with me.

This was not one of my favorites, but it was one I could get my brother to play with me, so I would take what I could get. I still don't like games where you pretend to blow people up or kill people. My husband and my friends make fun of me because when I play Dungeon Clix or other fighting games I prefer to think of it as paint ball.

My parents met in a Sailing and Skiing Club and wanted us to learn about sailing before they ever took us. So this was a game that the whole family played.

I couldn't find this game at first in the database because I was searching for Aliens. Oops. Thanks for the help.
