Salaam,

I used to be into Monopoly a lot but these days my favorite board games are:

Rummikub is specially good for mental exercise and can be played from 7 years onwards. No max as it is challenging for all.

What board games are you into?

I haven't played board games since I was a kid. My older sister used to cheat and always win. The only game she couldn't figure a way to cheat was Trivial Pursuit. One day I won. She beat me up, kicked me out of her room, and vowed to never play with me again. 

So I guess I pick Trivial Pursuit as my favorite. Getting beat up was totally worth it.

Nice. I used to be pretty good at it.

Here is a novel idea - we should have Trivial Pursuit on SC based on the 7 categories within the Main Forum. What fun that would be!!!

For me all my favourite stuff has a connection to my life. Thats reminds me of when I was younger, trading hockey cards with best friends on a rainy day, while taking over the world at Risk.

I feel old.

Though Monopoly will always have a place in my heart.... because I can beat ANYBODY on this site at it.

Seriously now, l haven't played a board game in 40+ years. We use to play PanzerBlitz and we had several of them so we could do large engagements. We even had a clear plastic sheet with hexagons printed so we could use 1:1200 maps and grease pencils to mark certain features more clearly.

Since many board games are Haram, Checkers and Chinese checkers are the ones I favour.

Ludo... Actually on the board!!! 

I have only ever played Ludo on the board and I grew out of it long before smart phones came on the scene. 

I miss the times when there was no technology and friends and family would gather around a board to play the damn game. Now everything is on a screen. It seems like we will soon loose our sense of the 3D world if we continue to spend half of our lives on the screen and the other half on bed.

It's for everyone. My mother used to play with her mother and I used to play with my mother and grandmother and younger and older cousins.

I grew up with Ludo boards and its "gotiyan" around me. I do not have a memory of when I started playing it. But I stopped when I left home to go to university and haven't played ever since, for like almost a decade and a half!

    • @E.L King gave great advice. Also make sure that even if she doesn't listen, you don't let her think that you're fine with her not wearing hijab (Sayed Sistani). But you have to remember to give her the message in a way that resonates with her and is most likely to produce a response. It also doesn't mean you should stop treating her with kindness - on the condition that such treatment doesn't encourage her in her ways, in which case even breaking ties with family is wajib if it's the only way to stop them from committing sins (see Sayed Khamenei's Q and A on this topic). So pray for her and find the best way to guide her to fulfilling this important obligation.
    • As l posted during Europe's refugee "crisis". one country built something like 75-100km of border 'wall' (chain link, razor wire, and all) in a weekend following a week or more on another section of their southern border.
    • A new anti-Trump book has been released. Collusion by Luke Harding(2017). These two book reviews express skepticism over the inherent validity of any innuendo or "relationships" between Russia and Trump. ln a BBC interview, 23Nov17, Harding said this putting-Trump-in-the-Soviet/Russian-camp has been a Moscow objective since the 1980s. https://www.kirkusreviews.com/book-reviews/luke-harding/collusion-harding/  https://www.publishersweekly.com/pw/by-topic/industry-news/promotionalss/article/75310-vintage-to-release-collusion-a-new-book-on-trump-russia-controversy.html
    • Whoever is telling you "that's between her and Allah it does not concern you" is ignoring the commandment of Allah to enjoin good and forbid evil. Enjoining good and forbidding evil is even more important when it comes to your own family members. If she has her mind made up and you cannot stop her, then it is not wajib on you anymore, only then can you let it go. But if you can stop her by convincing her through dialogue and preaching, then it is wajib on you to to try. But you should never show pleasure in these actions of hers. May Allah bless you.
    • Yeah I think she's exactly the same.
