  • Okay, I'm going to have to give in and have a go at one of these quizzes... thought this one was a better bet than sports or films! I have a mother who is a board games freak (current favourite - 'Articulate' - hysterically funny, especially when the Baileys is flowing at the end of the evening!)













    1. 'Monopoly'

    2. 'Scrabble' (love Scrabbulous on FB - I'm beating my hubby, and that *never* happens!)

    3. Ah, I know this one... Alex has a PS2 (which he *never* uses) - it's Sony, isn't it?

    4. Hmmm... is it 'double screen' or 'dual screen', something like that.

    5. Game Boy Advance, I think.

    6. 'Snap'

    7. 'Solitaire' or 'Patience'

    8. Chess <shudder> - Alex is always trying to teach me, and my brain doesn't work that way

    9. Ah, now, this is really sad, cos I know this one - we used to play dominos when I was in the sixth form, at school (cos, you know, we didn't have lives, or boyfriends, or hobbies - weep for me and my wasted youth) - it's 28, if you're using a standard double-six set, although you can get double-nine (55 tiles), double-twelve (91 tiles), double-fifteen (136 tiles) and the really hard-core double-eighteen (190 tiles) sets.

    10. 54

    11. Charades - many a happy Christmas day

    12. 'Jenga' - I *suck* at it - it's not really compatible with salbutamol shakes!

    13. 'Trivial Pursuit' - another one that Alex is really good at, and I suck at

    14. Urrrm... PlayStation Personal, or PlayStation Portable, one of those

    15. 64

    16. Two, I think

    17. Ooooh, I used to play this one, I think, with my sister - is it 'Sorry'?

    18. Pinball - yeah!

    19. 20, if you are playing International Draughts on a 10x10 board; 16, if you are playing English Draughts on a 8x8 board

    20. 'Mouse trap' - I used to watch the adverts for this, and I thought it looked *so* cool - my mum wouldn't buy it for me, cos it 'wasn't a real board game'. What a cruel and deprived childhood I did have!

    Well... how did I do? Alright, I think, except the games consol ones, which I know nothing about.

    Okay, well, I am off now to make my moves on my Scrabbulous games - there's some a** kicking to be done!
