I used to play a lot of board games when I was younger and I still like to from time to time. My girlfriend's mother is really into board games and usually when we go over for a visit we do some gaming of some kind. Karkazon is a good game that's been around for the last few years, but I only picked it up recently. It's pretty fun. Basically, there is no board here. Gamplay consists of building the board and strategically placing markers in order to win points and resources. It's fun because no two boards are alike and there is a lot of strategy involved.
As time goes by, the game changes. We practically play it every time we go over there. Games are loads of fun. I'm not sure if it's happening yet, but I think that playing board games is an activity long overdue for a resurgence. It's a good way for people to hang out and be social without having to drink tons, go out or watch movies or knit or whatever. Fun for the whole family as they say.
