Ten on Tuesday: Ten Favorite Games from my Childhood
1)Candyland - I played this game with my maternal Grandmother constantly. Such a fun game :)
2) Loom - this is a bit of a stretch as it is a computer game, but Loom was a really awesome adventure game which involved casting spells using musical notes. Very very fun! I believe my dad and I were competing as to who would finish first. May have even been me! See the intro to the game below.
3) CLUE-Board game based on the Tim Curry movie. Classic and loads of fun.
4) Trouble! -I remember playing this with my friends after elementary school.
5) The Game of LIFE -I still really like this game, but I don't have a copy of it. It was really cool having your little car and filling it up with family members.
6) Chutes & Ladders -An absolute classic game that I remember playing at a very young age.
7) Hungry, Hungry Hippos -The name says it all. But in case you aren't familiar... check out the video below.
8) Battle Chess - Another game that I played on the computer. Not that I was good at chess or anything, but seeing medieval knights crush any pawn in their path was really neat. Like Wizard Chess in Harry Potter. Oh, and it had a good soundtrack too.
9) Guess Who? - A fun guessing game that I played. I don't think I actually owned it, but I believe a friend did and getting a chance to play was much coveted by at least me. Commercial below.
Aaaaaannnnd, last but not least, my favorite game I played while growing up....
10) Monkey Island - BEST. GAME. EVER. You can see a little video on the game and it's history below. The game was remastered this past year to be appealing to a whole new audience, so you can download and play it now. DO IT!!!! (You can download it on Steam here for only $10). I can even play it on my iPhone... weird.
