What popular games have left YOU cold? The SIMS, D & D, Trivial Pursuit? Did you finally get sick of the waves lapping the shore in MYST and sent the CD spinning like a frisbee against the wall? Does DOOM strike you as pretty sick, or good clean fun? What has left YOU cold?---Al

We play the star wars card/role playing game. There's also a Hobbit game that is similar. Some people go to far, however. There are people I know who will spend money on Magic cards and dragon dice instead of food and rent. My old roomates spent money on a new game system instead of getting their van fixed, and promptly started asking for rides everywhere. Wherever they are now, I hope wisdom came with age.

Monopoly - tedious to my way of thinking.

I'm with ya on Monopoly, Doug. We used to play it all the time when I was a kid, but man was that tedious! A friend just gave me the Wizard of Oz version of monopoly and we played it, but there just wasn't any magic left (and there was little to begin with!). I suspect I've played my last monopoly game...unless I ever have grandchildren, that is.
