Default Board games

Anyone into board games like Starwars: Armada or Starwars: rebellion?

Or anything for that matter?

I know it's the tech forum, but I thought I'd catch more nerds here.

I'm a chess guy myself. Never was into board games as a kid, except for Operation.

That's probably the only one I've played in the past couple of years.

My wife grew up playing it with her folks, so we bust it out whenever we're hanging out with them.

Kinda screws up the whole game. Plus he doesn't count each step when it's his turn, so like if he rolls a 5, he picks up the marble and just tries to place it 5 holes down, trying to be cool I guess. But half the time, he puts it 4 or 6 spots down, because he isn't counting each spot one at a time. So I have to watch him like a hawk and constantly correct where he's putting shit. I'll try to let it slide until the game gets close to the end when it really matters.

Then there's the fact that they had all of these stupid rules they made up. The first time I actually read the instructions, I realized they had been playing it all wrong since forever. Some of the shit they were doing didn't make any sense at all.

Ya, it's just a game, but if you're not going to play it right, why play it at all?

I understand this far too well! Especially not counting your spaces. "You didn't get to the fucking ring! You can't roll a 7!" God damn kids.
