Favourite board games

I am looking for good ideas for board games for the Christmas season.

pictionary--my absolute favourite game ever. closely related: cranium.

scattergories

trivial pursuit is lots of fun, but not everyone loves it as much as i do (i'm a huge nerd )

monopoly--good ol' stand by

i second the game of life--fun for everyone!

i wish board games weren't so freakin' expensive, though. you could bankrupt yourself trying to gather a decent collection.

We have a good collection atm. We have Monopoloy, Cluedo, Boggle, Scrabble, Casino games, other random games that are for 5 - 8 year olds but we still like them.

i came top in the year (well out of the people who studied a-level french = 60 people) in french boggle and won a tintin book

boggle is great though.
my dad thinks me and my siblings are real wheeler dealers and we were all good at business studies because he bought us junior monopoly when we were about 5 - 8

The only memory I have of Junior Monopoly is my little sister not speaking to anyone for days on end if she didn't win and me and my brother hiding money in our socks that we stole from the bank.

I play Candyland all the time. But that's really for little kids. I think Boggle is a good grown up game.

Trivial Pursuit!!!
I also enjoy Cranium, which combines charades, pictionary, and trivial pursuit, and it's especially fun to play in teams.
and of course Scrabble and Upwords. I like mind games so I can flex my brain in front of the less intelligent.

Taboo

Not exactly a "board" game, but a fun game nonetheless. You need at least 4 people though.

Trivial Pursuit is the greatest. I asked for 2 different versions for Christmas - Pop Culture and 90's. (They're kind of expensive though)

I might like Risk... If I could stay in the game for more than 10 minutes.

Pictionary, Monopoly, Risk come to mind first off for me. Taboo is a good party game with a bunch of people (obviously). Then again, are Pictionary and Taboo really board games?
