I have similar memories for #The Game of Life. My grandparents would have us over for a few weeks in the summer and they had a cellar filled with classic games, most of them from the 1960's and 70's. The whole room had a very distinct smell, like dusty books or an old library. It's hard to describe but the smell alone still brings back good memories. The game I enjoyed playing as a kid the most was The Game of Life. I think it was just the fact that it was colorful and I could spin the wheel for movement. Whenever I see the game nowadays I think back to those summers.

The Dice tower did a series of video's a couple of years ago that were "10 games better than X" where X was classic games like Clue, Monolopy, Sorry, etc.  I watched those as I was getting into the hobby.  It was nice to know what type of games gave you similiar experiences to games I already knew.  There is a lot on these lists that I wouldn't recommend a new gamer jump into or purchase right away, especially towards the top of the lists.  Given the expensiveness and expansiness of the hobby a little knowledge can help keep people interested and excited.

Well of course I grew up playing classic games like #Monopoly, #UNO, #Boggle, and more strategic games like #Stratego and #Chess. I also played #Munchkin for years, but my first moment of "whoa there are actual cool games" was with #7 Wonders. I played it at a friend's bachelor party. I bought a used copy shortly after, then #Azul, and then eventually #Evolution: Climate, which I consider my first step into the "deep end of the pool," haha.

As for providing that moment to other people, I don't really know. I like to play games with people, and of course I try to pick a game that I think will go over well with the group and the setting. I teach the game as well as I can, and then that's pretty much it. I doubt I've caused an "awakening" in anyone, but we usually have fun.

I would love to have #Inis that is one of those classic games that I wish I had.

If I had $200 to spend on games, I would probably go for Wingspan and some of the expansions. I would love to get that title!

If I win the title... Be prepared for some pictures and videos, one to thank Board Game Atlas amd two to show off my prize to the world.

 

   Thanks!

Nope. I have a pretty small collection compared to you spychos, so less options means all games are played more or something like that.

Actually, I have yet to play #Choose Your Own Adventure: House of Danger, but I doubt that's thought of as a classic games

I’ve been a gamer all my life too! I’m mostly an exclusive PC gamer but was still able to experience the classic games from other systems. I vividly remember getting my SNES in 1st grade. So many great games for that console. 

My favorite PC games through the years include:

Baldur’s Gate and Baldur’s Gate 2 - some of the best RPGs ever made. If you haven’t played them you are missing out. 

Sid Meier’s Alpha Centauri- I got this when I was in 6th grade and I played so much of this game. It’s universally regarded as one of the best 4X games of all time. 

Diablo 2 - so many fun memories with this game. The music brings back so many feels. 

StarCraft -playing custom online maps with friends and playing through the excellent story campaign. 

Half-Life and Half-Life 2 - to this day these are two of the best games ever made. No other games come close. 

Counter-Strike 1.6, Day of Defeat Classic - my friends and I spent so much time playing these games (at the time they were mods for Half-Life) online. 

Rome: Total War - to this day it’s still my favorite Total War game. I love the interesting factions and this is my favorite period of history. Steam says that this is my most played game. I used to be the biggest fan of all of the Total War games but the newer ones have really disappointed me, starting with Rome 2. That game totally crushed me and I haven’t been as fond of the series ever since.

Civilization series - got into Civ 4 the most but have played all of them. Civ 2 had a really fun Cold War scenario that I loved to play. Civ 6 is a modern classic. 

World of Warcraft- wow, what a game. I was a big player from release through just before the release of the first expansion. I ended up quitting cold turkey because I was starting pharmacy school and needed to break my addiction. My character was one of the best warlocks in the Alliance on our server. I was in one of the best raiding guilds on the server. So many fun hours spent playing this game with my college roommate. What a fine time to be alive. 

The Witcher 3 - absolutely amazing and beautiful game. On of the few open world games that I really actually enjoyed. 

Oooooooh, unpopular opinions! Those are tasty! I, too, have some of those. 
  • Inaccessible game design, especially around colorblindness, is lazy game design. 
  • Disregarding games because they are cute is a terrible plan. Games don't have to be hard edges and getting thrown out of the airlock to be good games with serious gameplay. 
  • Kids deserve access to classic games with no judgement as well as more modern games. 
  • Game designers deserve to be paid fairly for their work, AND people who can't afford to drop big bucks on games deserve to have access to games. (The unpopular part of this one is that they must exist in tandem.) 
  • Games that aren't originally published in English can be just as good as the pile of games that are, and we should give them the same chance. 
  • The boardgame world is sometimes (often) an echo chamber. 
  • #Risk is a terrible first date but an oddly effective opening for a one-night stand. 

This is one of those classic games that I have read a lot about and still feel like I barely know anything about it. 

I played the classic games as a kid and also many a marathon session of Axis and Allies with my high school friends!

However, I took a hiatus when I had my kids.  I picked up games like Flux, Carcassonne, and Settlers of Catan to play with the kids but it never really took off.

My real reintroduction to the hobby was seeing a few guys I used to work with having a board game day on facebook.  I asked if I could come out too and go reintroduced to the hobby with none other than Power Grid. 

Not the easiest game to come back in with but I loved it.  I'm back baby!
