Board Games II

I got quite a bit of feedback regarding my Board Games Post from yesterday, so I liketo add a question.
Nearly every time me and my family here in Germany come together, we play a game that's called "Mensch Ärgere Dich Nicht". It looks like this:


I looked for title in a translator, but the only suggestions were: "Ludo" or "Parcheesi" which I unfortunately never heard before. The goal of the game is to get your 4 gaming tokens into the safe zone first - without getting them knocked back to the starting zone by the other players.

Do you know and play this game, too?

  11. Such a good game, Parcheesi. It's made it's way to america I think. I used to play it while I was young, but then again it could have been brought over form Europe while my dad was in the military. Good post.

  13. Our family loves to play this game. My relatives have played it since their youth. We even bought a new "Mensch ärgere dich nicht" from a store in Nurnberg which was designed to look like an old well worn version.
