12 Classic Family Games

Candy Land | 3-6 yearsRemember the days when you sat around a board game with your friends or family?

It's time to show those gadgets who's boss! Here are 12 old-school games we want to bring back.

Battleship | 7-14 years

A “hit” since the early 1940s, Battleship was originally a paper and pencil game called Broadsides, the Game of Naval Strategy. Today’s version still presents the challenge of plotting each move while keeping track of all the hits and misses — just with a cool, streamlined “board” (and
a catchier name).

Board Games Group in San Diego

by sdguy00001

Looking to find a group of guys interested in playing strategy board games once or twice a month. The types of games would be Settlers of Cataan, Game of Thrones, Axis & Allies, and the like. It's important for you to have some free time so that games can be scheduled, I already have a group of friends with families and obligations and we can't ever seem to find a time when everyone's free. Please be mature and easy-going, I don't want any hostility or fights over a game. It would also be convenient if all players were located in north county (coastal preferred) to cut down on drive time for everyone. Lastly, I'm not able to host right now, so please be able to host occasionally.
I'm 35, but all ages within reason welcome. Email me if you're interested, it should be fun.
