There are lots of fun board games to play but if I have to choose one, I will choose Jenga. I am not really sure if it can be considered as a board game because it does not involve any board but I find it most interesting.
Jenga is a game played by two or more players. The players stack the blocks to form a rectangular structure or tower. The game is played by removing a single block with one hand by the players without causing the structure to fail and fall and putting it at back at the top of the tower. The person who causes the tower to be destroyed losses and the last person remaining wins.
I find it really interesting because the game requires some serious skills. First, the person must possess good analytical skills wherein he should be able to choose which block to remove wisely and in what way will it be removed. It is very difficult when you have shaky hands and when you move in really slow pace. Second, the game requires strategy. To be able to win, you should defeat your opponent by making moves that will make the game more difficult for the other player. By this I mean, moving blocks in such a manner that the next move he makes will cause the tower to fall down.
Among other board games aside from jenga, I also find scrabble interesting because it requires knowledge about words and techniques how to win the bonus points. There are plenty of other fun board games too like snakes and ladders and monopoly. I hope my answer helps!
I used to play a bunch of board games when I was younger, from Snakes & Ladders, Checkers, Chess...etc But the one that I truly enjoy is Monopoly, I bet everyone would agree that it's one of the most popular board game of all time.
What I think that interest me the most is the excitement that I get into gaining & developing the properties along my way through the board. The challenging part is to avoid getting bankrupt while buying properties and spending my money through passing-by the other players properties.
Aside from making and spending of money, there are also twist and turns along the board. One of them are the violations that might cause you penalties while could even land you in Jail. These are possible real life scenarios that might happen to me if I'm not careful enough.
It's the kind of board game that even adults will find it interesting enough to get them to play. And for a young child, it could also be an early preparation for his/her future when it comes to finacial management.

I think this is the best game ever made. It is something that is somewhat related to real life in a way. The good thing about monopoly is that is has many versions that are made. Then it's the first board game that let's us handle money. Even though the money is fake, but well it let's us know how important money is.
The part of the board that is very memorable are the utilities and the train stations. Those are really important,. Conquer them and you win. Then there would be the last person who has alot of hotels on their own land and those other players who land on their land has to pay a hefty rent fee. It relates somewhat to real life in a way. Imagine that one day, we own these lots of hotels and properties. Those who use the properties.
I also have scrabble, but I am not sure how to play. Hahaha. The other type of board game that I like to play is chess. This is a game of ego. Those who can win usually can brag about their strategy.
Sadly, nowadays many of the board games are less played and everyone prefers to be in a one man show rather than in board games or team work related games.
It happens to me, like everyone else, to play board games; in general it is with my family, like many people, during the holidays, family reunions, meetings ...
We play a lot of "Scrabble", which I like a lot, "Monopoly" and "chess", even if I am very nil. We sometimes play cards (laughs) too and many others ....
We also play other beautiful games that I enjoy very much, the games on issues of general culture (stress, fear of being null, ridiculous, but also the pleasure of learning, discovering, checking his knowledge, to surprise himself, to surpass himself, ...) Really magical, as moments! Fortunately, my family shares this pleasure (to learn, to discover, to understand, to marvel ...). Find your mind, your heart, your eye and your child's soul: it's vital and beautiful!
The quizzes and tests of general culture are really very pleasant, I tell you!
I am a huge fan of board games. I've been playing some since I was in grade school, like chess, Chinese checkers and scrabble. During break time and lunch time, you will see us playing.
Of the three games I mentioned, my favorite is Chess. Believe me or not, I am good at it that I have competed in the Cebu City Olympics, the biggest sports competition in DepEd Cebu City Division. I may have not tried being the champion but being sent in that prestigious event itself is already a huge honor. Because of this experience, Chess has been part of my life.
What makes me interested in Chess is, aside from being a very good past time, it can also enhance your thinking skills. Unlike scrabble where sometimes the outcome depends on the letters you picked, in Chess you need to think and plan out a strategy. Unlike in scrabble where you will wait for your opponent to cast his move, in Chess you can make a strategy while your enemy has not yet made his move. And most especially, chess helps you win more friends. Sometimes, your opponent becomes your friend because you share the same interest.
Even if I'm a grown up now, I still play chess especially when I am bored. I have a chess app in my phone where I can play against AI so I do not necessarily need someone to play with me.
