I like lots of board games. The first one that comes to mind is Backgammon, but I assume like Chess and Dominoes, this can be ruled out on a technicality that it isn't truly a board game.
That said, Scrabble probably edges out Monopoly, but the Eurails "train game" comes in a close third.
Or Trivial Pursuit. Or my latest obsession with the game Set. Does Poker count? What about Candyland?
