Most people have played one board game or another by the time that they are teenagers. They have a place in our culture although now we generally play them online. Of all the board games that I have played I like the ones listed below the most of all.
(1) Chess - This is my favorite game of all. I have played it for almost fourty years now.
(2) Backgammon - I never played it as a child although it was on the reverse side of the Checker board.
(3) Go - A great oriental game that I started to play a few years ago. It is as complicated as Chess and takes longer (in my opinion) to master.
