New Poll - Board Games
Do you play board games? I used to play a lot, from light (Sushi Go) to heavy games (Gloomhaven), although I'm playing more video games right now.

The poll conflates liking board games, and playing them.
There is such a thing as liking board games, but not being able to play them. (or not nearly as much as one would like)
I love 'em!
...but barely ever play them.

Not sure about this.. Does monopoly, ludo, halma, and othello counts as boardgame? I haven't played them in quite a long time, but it's not like I dislike it. It's just that the people around me who used to play the games with me are now having their own life, so finding the time to play together is quite a challenge.

In what possible way, would they not count as boardgames?

...and I also have the huge difficulty, of actually having people to play with.

Only once in a while. Repeating this poll with card games, digital one's counts, ain´t the worst idea just to see how the pendulum shifts.

"I love them!", "I've played plenty", and "Only once in a while", are all accurate options for me.
Most board games, I'm unable to play due to lack of players. There are tons of board/card games, that I'd love to play, but can't
With Go, you can play online, which often solves the opponent-issue
...but there my depressingly low energy level, is what stops me from playing regularly.

Board games? More like bored games. 😛

In all seriousness, I do like them, but between video games and just having conversations without something getting in the way, playing board games is a difficult decision for me to make.

I collect vintage 80s & 90s kids board games. I love to play them with my young niece and she enjoys them too.


» LazyReviewer on March 14th, 2023, 7:25pm

Wait, 90s is vintage? That's not something I want to hear.

Used to, but not really anymore.

I do like them, but I play them around twice a year. It gets harder to find people to play them with, since most of them can't be played outside. So unless it's raining it feels like a waste not touring around the city and seeing what's changed and they occupy lots of space. I also prefer card game, they're way more portable and with two decks even 8 people can play stuff.
