5 Games I Loved To Hate

1. Perfection
Perfection Game. This is NOT a happy memory. This has to be the most stressful game ever made! It was so nerve-racking waiting for the PoP!

There is something about this game that makes me jump out of my skin. I can't put my finger on it - oh wait, it probably has something to do with the fact that you are counting down to a big POP of the board. Yeah, my anxious little self was not a fan of that. I couldn't ever find even five shapes because I was so nervous about the POP at the end. Ah well, something still made me want to play it.

2. Operation
Again, a matter of my nervous little self. I had consistently shaky hands that always bumped the metal sides making it buzz and vibrate. Did it actually vibrate or did I make that up in my mind?
3. Bed Bugs
1985 Bed Bugs Game By Milton Bradley

Bed Bugs. Really? Those jittery little things were impossible to pick up with those plastic tweezers. Not to mention the fact that it was bed bugs. Ew.

4. Mousetrap
This one almost didn't make the list. I loved it. Truly. But, it took a billion years to set up and a billion years for me to actually make it all the way through. Exaggerations sure but not too far off I swear. It was super fun to try until...it wasn't.

5. Monopoly
Break out the board games and have a family game day!

This game has always been a difficult one for me. It involves making decisions and counting money. Those are two of my arch nemeses. Still it was great to play, as long as I was winning. I'm being honest here folks.

What about you? What games did you love to hate?

This is a great list! Operation was terrifying! That horrible noise when you hit the metal! I couldn't stand it, BUT it was fun to play! I also loved Mouse Trap, but you're right it did take forever to get set up. I don't mind Monoploy. It just takes a long time to play.

I totally forgot about Perfection. I loved that game!
