Fitting an average game of Battlestar Galactica: The Board Game under 2 hours is optimistic as well.

It has Monopoly and Candy Land on there...hmm.

Also Twister. gulp

I think the chart, although ambitious, needs some serious updating.

This chart is actually surprisingly not completely awful. It's got some good suggestions. The kid's game suggestions look like they're coming from someone with little experience gaming with kids. I think there's a lot of better games they could have put into that section for sure.

Do you secretly wish you were a dick? A.p.I. YES!!! And you get up Arkham Horror???
And Hardest rules ever?? Axis and Allies???? WHAT?!

This list needs a SERIOUS update ppl. That is a FACT.
When was this list actually made? Back in early 90´s? Late 80´s perhaps?

I know you guys are thinking this is stupid, but I went through the whole test and came out to puerto rico. (Which is my all time favorite game.)

If I want to play a competitive game with my teenage children, who are old enough not to be coddled, I get to play Monopoly. Oh joy.

If they are a teenager they are not considered "Children" anymore. So you don't have to go into the children category.I have an 8 yo that plays 7 wonders with us.

Are all players serious board game geeks?

No leads to Domaine, a game I find more difficult to explain than Puerto Rico. It's got subtle area control mechanisms where an experienced board gamer would just trounce a newb.

I'm not saying that my children play children's games anymore. They were playing adult games with us from around 6 or 7, while still enjoying children's games and junior versions of games among themselves. But the chart does specify "children," with the only dividing line set at 7. And since most teenagers are not mature enough nor responsible enough to not need guidance and supervision, they are children.

Not my favorite game. But you do look upon one of the Puerto Rico Champs here. Fact!
