Guess who took 1st place in a 90 man Hold'em tourney last night playing online poker? That's right, ME.

100 bucks in me pocket.

Eat it.

So, who else here is a fan of the game or any other board/card games in general?

Like some Axis & Allies do you?

Have fun playing some Monopoly?

How about some muffugen Yatzee?

    I love Clue, but everytime we play in my house, a fight breaks out.


    Last time my sister got a little lead pipe thrown at her eye.

    Reminds me of the Monopoly game on the Sopranos a couple weeks back.


    Last year i used to get drunk or high and play Hearts every weekend. Before that I played spades with a some black kids I knew in high school.

    I was DMing a side adventure for a couple guys in my D&D group.

    It was supposed to be a short, sweet, kind of easy thing, but they both ended up dead.

    Rolled 3 20s for one player, and critted the other during the first combat.

    So, the night ended pretty quickly.

    I have a love/hate relationship with Risk/Castle Risk. I love the games and will play any time someone suggests it but I don't recall ever having won a game my whole life.

    I'd also like to play Texas Hold 'em more, but not for money. Just for fun.

    The best house rule in monopoly is that you can steal money from the bank provided no one catches you. If you're caught you go straight to jail. Always gotta keep your eye on the crooked banker.

    Oh man. I've had epic battles of Risk.

    Friendships have been put on the rocks because of that game.

    I love playing Risk with my friends back home. Our games end up being very short and very violent.

    Are you asian? That may have something to do with it. I don't think I've ever seen a white person who knows how to play. Also, people get cut throat playing that game.

    Mahjong is fun if you have non throat cutting friends who lay on the moves. Since and easy plus its quite fun actually. Of course, I found never dream of challenging the old ladies. They would freaking cream me.

    Me and some friends went through a short phase where we'd go to a parking lot late at night, pull out a flattened cardboard box, and play dice till the wee hours of the morning. Man, high school was dumb.

    Yeah, that's the prize pool.

    You see, they usually pay people that place from 1st to whatever.

    In this case you'd be "In the money" if you finished between 1st place to 18th place.

    Everyone knows the real way to hold any sort of tournament is with one man on top, and dozens of humiliated, people on the bottom with nothing but tears.

    I grew up playing it and I love it. If you have a partner you work well with then the other team needs to watch out. I used to play with my father and we knew each others tendencies very well.
