I love playing scrabble with anyone who also likes to play, I've even thought about joining the library scrabble group.  We also play scene it, outburst, bingo, anything really.

We never have with friends, although I'd like to. With the kids we used to play D&D for a while, then monopoly.

We have played board games but failed at making a family or friends game night, too many schedules to juggle.

We play UNO, Sorry, Monopoly, Story Cubes, Scrabble and Apples to Apples, the kids play chess, too.

Board games are a staple in my house! We like monopoly, and trouble the most but we also play scrabble, trivial pursuit, chutesand ladders, candyland, kids of catan, and rattlesnakes.
We used to have game nights where we would invite friends over on fridays but not so much anymore.

I have played lots of games with my family and friends through the years, although some of them won't play Trivial Pursuit with me anymore!  lol  My nieces love to pull out "Life" when we're visiting my parents.  My son is only a baby yet, so we obviously don't play anything like that with him right now, but I certainly plan to once he's old enough.

My husband has friends that host a game night every month.  We haven't been able to go for quite awhile now because of the baby (and the fact that they are a considerable driving distance away from our home), but hopefully at some point in the future we'll be able to make the trip again.

I enjoy trivia games of any kind, especially the ones that include video (Scene It), as well as Cranium and anything that gets groups involved.

We also like charades, Pictureka, chutes and ladders, and Last Word.
My dh has had a Texas hold 'em poker game night w/ my dad and brothers a few times.

We have never had a game night. Usually we all do dinner at someones house and everyone brings something, then we play w the kids and then its bedtime so everyone scatters. Maybe when the kids are older wecan do game nights.

we are still into chutes and ladders and candyland...the whole family likes to play wheel of fortune.  I believe it has helped our boys with learning the alphabet and now reading.

Uno, monopoly and scrabble. Those are family favorites. We also love playing dancing games on our Xbox Kinect.
