Avalon Hill's Panzer Blitz and its early '80s computer offspring, Kampfgruppe. I was a war gamer first and the very first computer game I ever got for the Atari 8-bit was Chris Crawford's Eastern Front.

If you are holding out for the perfect game, the only game you play will be the waiting one.

Yeah, I think this topic is way, way off. There was a board game renaissance from the '90's on, spearheaded by a bunch of German game designers...
This isn't a signature, you just think it is.
Let's see who reads past the title, as I'm not talking about MMORPGs, or even video games.I mean the "true" old school board games which we older folks played by candlelight with actual people we knew in real life. I was a "gamer" back then too, spending every cent or asking "Santa" for nothing but board games year after year.So many favorites back then, going to create a poll with some of my favorites but feel free to add any you personally enjoyed before video games changed the world. (Poll will appear shortly)

My favorite board game as a kid was Parcheesi, played it almost every day.I also played Chess and another one i forgot the name where the board forms a star shape with many holes and the pieces that go in the holes are little spheres.EDIT: ah found the star shaped board game, it's called Sternhalma, but i knew it from the Japanese name Diamond game.
