The first board game I remember playing was Snakes and Ladders then Ludo (Pachisi) and Coppit (Trap the Cap). Card games followed. In particular Speed with its wonderful art and Whot. My grandparents had some Pepys cards games from my dad's childhood, though the only one I played was Round Europe. Other people's games that left an impression when I was 12 and 13 were Buccaneer and Hit the Beach.

In NZ in the 1970s there weren't many games in the shops and we had home made versions of Contraband, Conspiracy and 2 player Quintro (5 in a Row) plus shop bought Monopoly and Careers and packs of playing cards and a set Mancala from Ghana.

In the 1990s I came across 1830: Railways & Robber Barons and Modern Art as the fore-runners of today's board games.
