Board Games

Board Games... Y'know, I used to love board games so much. As a family, we'd get a new game every Christmas, set it up when the rest of the family visit, and then have to have the standard family argument when someone broke the rules or counted spaces wrong, or handed out the wrong amount of money. Quality Family Times, guaranteed.

Many board games have been ported to computers and consoles over the years, especially the likes of Scrabble and Monopoly. But who has ever taken on converting the complicated physics of KerPlunk? Or translating the frantic slapping of Hungry Hungry Hippos? Some games just don't convert to bits and bytes very easily, but then again, even for the ones that do, isn't the original always the best?
