Itâ€™s hard to believe that there was a time not that long ago, when there wasnâ€™t 943 satellite channels to sway our boredom, we didnâ€™t have 18 video game systems for each TV in the house and the only thing we knew about computers was that Mathew Broderick could change his grades with one. Yes, it may seem like the dark ages compared to today, but there was always one thing that we could depend on to ease the pain of our primitive existenceâ€¦ the board game. Granted, the board game was not a tool you used often. In fact, it may have only been a weapon of last resort saved only for that grim time in between after school cartoons and Knight Rider.
