And so, in no particular order, here are my three favourite games:
The Secret Of Monkey Island
Witty point-and-click gaming as Guybrush Threepwood undergoes the three trials to become a pirate, visits Monkey Island and kicks the ghost pirate LeChuck's butt. I can't recommend this and its sequels highly enough.
The murder mystery board game Cluedo rhymes with Ludo (renamed Clue in the USA, because Ludo is apparently called Parcheesi there and Clarcheesi would be a rubbish game name). You play one of six colourfully named characters, all suspects in the murder of Dr. David Black out to prove their innocence by correctly identifying the murderer, the weapon used and the room that was the scene of the crime. Its more fun than I'm making it sound.
The game that anyone with a hand can play, simply choose Paper, Scissors or Stone. Your opponent does the same. Paper beats Stone, Scissors beats Paper, Stone beats Scissors and a draw means play again. Settle arguments without fighting. No one to play against? Play solo here.
