Two of my favorites were Candyland and Chutes and Ladders. When I got older, my sisters and I would duke it out at Monopoly and Parcheesi. In college I discovered backgammon.
All of these games are enduring classics. Just last week I enjoyed a play date with my sweet little six-year-old neighbor girl, and she brought over Chutes and Ladders. I was whisked back in time and had a blast.
What board games did you enjoy when you were younger? Are they still around today?
