First of all let me say how odd it was to write that post title. Is this like asking who’s your favorite doo-wop band, or which soda fountain in town has the fizziest drinks? Do people even play board games anymore?

Well, Amish do. Last night we got in a red-eyed round of Settlers of Catan,a hit game in Lancaster County and elsewhere. Other friends enjoy Life on the Farm, a dairy agribusiness simulator.

Board games appeal to Amish for the obvious reasons-they’re easy to pick up, don’t take electricity and are great for the family. That said, not everybody likes them.

So what are your favorite board games? Or are you like another Amish friend of mine, who considers them “bored” games?
