I was a small fish in a big pond before I played life. But this game taught me to put myself out and hope for the best. You just can not beat life.
brings back lots of memories
This game has opened up a whole new meaning to my life. I set out to be a millionaire with only £10 in my pocket and this game has given me the incentive to apply myself in a whole new adventure. I <3 LIFE THE GAME. THANK YOU

Awesome game. Its really fun to play with people who have no idea what their history, science, etc is!
fun game, really entertaining to just answer the questions
Been playing this for30 years - the best family game
Fun as, never gets boring.
So much to play with a group of adults. Exciting and easy. No Set up! Just the hand held game and a lot of laughs!
Best game in the world!!! If you are looking for a game for laughs this is the one! Just make sure you are in a place where its okay to be loud. Also, its fun if you get together and play it with a group of close friends!!! Good drinking game too! ;)
this game is awesome i play it all the time fun for the family
They still sell Stratego! I love that game! I have both the original and the LOTR version! It's the most fun game ever!
one of the best board games, like chess but it needs luck because you cannot see the no of enemy or the bomb or the flag
Great game. Unfortunately, all the stores I've went to have took this item out of stock. idk how long its been since they stopped buying Stratego, but not many people kno about it now. :(
Buy this game people, and be amazed at the fun you will hav!

smart ppl only, idiots not welcomed
We played with our life group and it was fun, got us thinking outside the box.
Fun fantasy strategy game with different teams to chose from. Good replayability as resources can definitely alter your plans.
Little known fantasy strategy game that can be played by casual and serious gamers alike. I'll meet you at the center tower!
Not only on boardgamegeek, all charts of real boardgamers i know list PR as number one. Absolutely deserved!
The number one game for over 100,000 registered users of Board Game Geek and over a million viewers a month, for a damn good reason.

Oh Yeah! Love it, It mixes the strategic nature of risk with a sci-fi type gameplay. The bonus cards etc are amazing.
This is the best game ever! You just can't beat it!
5. Trivial Pursuit
And why the hell is pictionary 28th!
I want to be an artist when I grow up. (I want to be other things too, of course).
Come on! How fruity is this game.
Best war game ever hours and hours of fun, you have control of navel, air and land.
This game is a truly unique experience, rare have I played a game where I felt like I was in complete control of an army, it is a very fun game in my opinion.
With a large group of people nothing is funnier than a game of balderdash
So fun. Why isn't it more popular!
The core rules of Diplomacy are so simple but the intrigue and backstabbing that goes on behind the scenes is what makes this such a good game. Insanely addictive and guaranteed to consume many a rainy day.
I love this game because it does drive your imagination. It brings structure to anything you can think of and immerses you into a fantastic world. It is the largest influence on role-playing games, without Dungeons and Dragons games like World of Warcraft and The Elder Scrolls wouldn't exist. More people should play this game; with the proper guidance casual players can learn to enjoy this game and critical thinkers will feel right at home with the strategic options and builds they can make within this game. I believe it deserves to be scored higher because it has influenced so many games; but only too few see the true value of what an amazing game this truly is. Pick it up and play with your friends and family; you won't be dissapointed.
Convoluted and fantastic, gets your mind working, and imaginations running. It may be your classic version of hardcore nerd gaming, but it WILL surprise you. And you WILL end up getting in touch with your inner RPGer. Everything possible from mid-evil to zombie apocalypses... Never under estimate this game!
This game is timeless and badass, don't let no-one tell you you're a geek, they can keep monopoly!
Heroscape is amazing. You can still get some of the expansions and boosters for relatively cheap. Do so, and you will enjoy the game so much more. Even if you don't have the game at all, you can still play free online at heroscapers. Com
Heroscape is a really fun game. I like the original version more then all of the secondary ones. Unfortunately these days it's very expensive. I don't have any expansions but I don't need them.
It's such a simple game but has just the right elemts to keep it exciting right to the end. Plus a great football shaped dice.
Truely the best Sport Surviavl; board game around!
I love this game. I have been looking for a copy but they are never available.
A semi-war, semi-politics game based around the cold war. The concept is genuine while the game play is challenging and enjoyable for eurogamers and wargamers alike.
try it. you will never get the red one!
I have never played this game but it gave me a great idea fro my own game just by looking at the name, so if you should like this game just because you can created about a thousands others different games! So I say LOVE LOVE IT! I do and I am as good as president...
You will love this game! Questions on all your favorite brands by it now at your retailer target
Awesome game, once both players have mastered the rules, it never gets boring! :)
Oh my god it should be in the top ten, it is really interesting...
It is real fun. You have to think very cleverly and deeply about each move you play in order to win. It is the best detective game.
New chess variant, pieces move simultaneously
My brother loves this game and so do I. I play it all the time. When someone gets four in a row he/she wins!
It uses concentration thinking and strategy. Get it, play it, love it!
If you want to have a fun while back stabbing your best friend and than offering to save him for a reward naturaly. You should get a copy of munchkin. More players you have, better it gets.
its a great game for all the familly when its a wet day out!
best board game I've ever played - luck factor 0 ^^ great gameplay
Not very well known outside hobby boardgamers, but hands down, the best board game ever designed. It's a medium-length boardgame (90 to 120 minutes is typical), with a fair share of both tactics and strategy, and just a little dose of luck.
Plus, it's very high on player interaction.
Hello? A game where you can control the flow of containerised cargo around a map of the world? How is this so low in the charts! My favourite feature is the little white reefers. They are beast.
Based on the BBC1 quiz of the same name.
Truly a gamer's games and one of the most well-designed. Casual gamers may not be drawn to it, but hardcore gamers will love the complexity.
