We played a game called RUMMIKUB at a friends house recently and ordered one for ourselves. Its a number based game based on the rules of the rummy card game. Simple rules, so easy to get going, but fiendishly difficult to get good at, due to the number of ways of playing your hand.

​You can also get a version using letters rather than numbers.

Yawn!

Call of duty black ops online split screen.

Good times.

Best present. Getting a bike when I was young. Worst.. In 2007 my gifts. Wallet. Ties. Socks ect I put in carrier bag. Wife threw it out by mistake.. Nightmare. Best to look forward to is Turkey, chips, peas, onion rings on boxing day. Plus Christmas is over. Wahoo! Worst is having to deal with family members with personality disorders over the period.

Yawn!



LoL, plenty of games out there which require no grey matter! Kerplunk maybe?

I like Fustration, the original pop o matic one, not this new fangled one with dice flicking switch

we also like rummikub, though it gets a bit tedious with hubby playing moving all the numbers round in the hope of getting out and then forgetting where they went to begin with!

I used to love my megadrive I had for Christmas one year.... think my worst present was my nana buying me oranges

Can't beat Jenga as a party game.

The worst present I've ever had was a pack of Lynx smellies a few years ago, I've no desire to smell like a 17 year old.

Best present ever, either one of these blingy bad boys I had when I was 7:

Or one of these I had when I was 14:

Quite funny watching their faces when they can't remember the sequence that they had cleverly worked out in the head go horribly wrong!
There is a 3 tile penalty if you don't complete the turn.
