I'm an avid computer gamer, but recently I have become interested in going "old school" and getting back to some of the games my grandmother used to teach us as kids, and some she didn't. I just recently picked up a dominoes set and a backgammon board. The rules for both aren't too hard, but there is a subtle strategy (especially with backgammon) that makes me think it would be a lot of fun when the power is out or even if it isn't. Spades and hearts can be a lot of fun too. And of course, Monopoly is the best, I don't care who you are. ;P I guess the real allure is having good games to play with real people in your presence without the need for electricity (even if the electricity IS on). Kind of more intimate. Anyone else into these types of games? If so, what is your favorite?
