This week’s poll question is: Do You Still Own Physical Board & Puzzle Games?

Love our t-shirts? The best comment in this poll will get one of our geeky t-shirts. That’s right, for free! So get commenting!

This week, my friend bought a Rubik’s Cube. A real one. It brought back many childhood memories, and the realization that no software game will ever be able to truly replace this sophisticated puzzle. Monopoly, Uno, Settlers of Katan, Connect Four, Go… these are all very popular games that started as board games, but all of them have a tablet and even a smartphone version now. Do these software versions compare to the real thing? And do you still own the real games, or are they slowly going out of style?

Tell us in the comments everything you think about physical board games. What does the future hold for them?
