I learned to play all of those early board games from the older brothers and sisters that were around. We rarely even finished one of them all the way through before giving up and starting a different one. As an adult I’ve gone back and read the actual instructions to games like Monopoly and cracked up at how different the real rules are.

I started out with board games like Sorry! and Candy Land. They were mainly up to chance. Luck of the draw or roll of the dice. Then suddenly a game that not only required skill but a game that my older brother convinced me delivered actual painful electric shocks. I eventually learned the truth but the anticipation of that buzzer still made Operation my least favorite game at the time.
