New episodes every other Thursday!

Cracked brought this list out this morning, but it’s not all bad. When they list the bad games, they also offer alternatives, some of which are familiar to TableTop fans. (Near the end there’s a TableTop shout-out, as well)

The TL;DR Version:

#6-Bad: Chutes/Snakes and Ladders   Good: King of Tokyo

#5-Bad: The Game of Life   Good: Ticket to Ride

#4-Bad: Connect Four   Good: Alien Frontiers

#3-Bad: Battleship   Good: Ricochet Robots

#2-Bad: Risk   Good: Settlers of Catan

#1-Bad: Monopoly   Good: Power Grid

    I call bullshit on this list, especially calling Risk and Monopoly bad. They’re both fairly simple games mechanically...
