I went to an unusually painfully boring meeting today, and I spent my time wondering what forms of torture I would honestly rather go through than going to said meeting. And of course, they were all board game related.

Here is a scale I came up with: (best first)

- Playing a game of Monopoly (not too bad)

- Playing any of my games with a no. 1 rating

- Playing candy land with a d20

- Playing candy land for an hour (with a -1 modifier).

And of course, none of the above count if played with kids (which might actually make the game fun!).

Any more ideas?? (I need a more sophisticated scale methinks :)

My favorite 18xx game for six players is two games of 1846 with three players each.

Playing a game of Trajan in which each of the other players berates me every turn for not thinking my move through carefully.

[Edit: no; on second thought I'll just attend the meeting.]

I read here some account of a game of Monopoly with a house rule that you can't build houses or hotels because apparently that makes the game too complicated. As boardgaming torture goes that sounds pretty hard to beat. Not far behind is playing with risk with the old rules that give each set a fixed value throughout.

Playing any game that cheaped out on a board and requires you to measure movement with a ruler. Absolute torture.

As long as no stupid rules are added to lengthen the Monopoly game, I'll gladly play it. I'll even enjoy it.

In no particular order:
Playing an adult storytelling game with your parents.
Playing BANG! The Dice Game sitting next to the guy who has PSP (Pre-Shower Paralysis) in a crowded booth.
Playing any board game with the in-laws/relatives that you dislike and no turn timer.
Teaching a heavy game new 5+ new players at once.
Teaching an old, complex AH game to young children.
