Fun N' Games

Today's post is a part of Alex Cavanaugh's Fun And Games Blog Type Party

The goal is to list your three favorite games of all time.  This is really hard for me for some reason.  I'm going to list one game for each of the major categories of gamagehood.

Sport: College Basketball
Let's face it, the NBA is meh.  But college basketball is amazing and summer is officially the longest time of the year whilst I wait for it. 





Board Type Game:  Hungry Hungry Hippos
It was tough not to go with Risk, but this is basically the same thing but faster and more violent.  



Video Games:  This category is tough as it is hard to not put every Legend of Zelda or Grand Theft Auto game.  I'm a sucker for free map games.  The best made to date has to be Fallout 3.  


Come back tomorrow for Music to Make Write to With Cheese Boy.
The next person on the blog fest is here.

  1. Oh, I completely agree that NCAA basketball is far better than the NBA. I don't even bother to watch NBA games, but I would never miss March Madness.

  2. I love NCAA basketball. It's so much fun to watch and get into. Though I do love my Bulls. But March Madness is a religious experience for me.

  3. Hungry Hungry Hippos brings back flashbacks of hand slapping and screaming. The other two I have no clue about.

  7. Excellent choices! Fallout 3 was awesome. And college basketball is always more exciting than the pros.
    Thanks for participating in the blogfest!

  8. Hungry Hippos... that brings back so many memories from when I was a kid. It's always best to play on a table with a slant. Everyone will wonder how you keep winning.

  9. I'm a big fan of duck duck goose. There comes a time, usually around 5th or 6th grade, where the game gets a little more violent. You smack the 'goose' like he owes you money, and if he catches up to you, you know you're gonna get pummeled.

    That, the original Super Mario Kart, and tetris. I can play tetris until my balls fall off.

  15. Yay, Ted & Tonja fixed my blogger problem. Now I can talk to you again. I'm no longer muted. maybe I'm still moot though. :)

    I got my husband Fallout3 for x-mas. He's still enjoying it.

  16. Ha ha on Hungry Hippos! I have played that in the last five years!
    I like college ball better than pro as well. But I've only been to two games (go Illini!).

  17. I never thought of Hungry Hippos as violent but I see your point. Really, what could be more violent?
    Nice picks.

  18. Ohh I forgot about Risk - great game. Love those Hippos though.

    I would be curious to know your favorite Legend of Zelda game. Mine's LTTP. :)

  20. KANSAS BASKETBALL!!!! WHOOOOOOOO!!!!!
    it must be terrifying stuck up there near all those huskers!
    our little town is halfway between manhattan and lincoln and some years they have this big parade and events when the two teams play each other and people put out their flags and hate on each other for awhile! so fun! my boss loves k-state so much that her whole office is covered in purple and white!
    one of the main cooks is a huge jayhawks fan, and the two of them smack talk all basketball season- it's hilarious! :)

  21. Hungry, hungry hippos! Can't wait until my boys are old enough that they can play it.

  25. I totally agree with you about college basketball vs. NBA. I don't know what it is, but professional level feels boring to me while college feels fresh and exciting.

    And LOVED hungry hippos! ROFL about the comparison to Risk. :D
