CHOICE: GAME ON
While parents plunder the toy cupboard for interactive entertainment, board games are enjoying an equally enthusiastic resurgence in the club world. By night, twentysomethings are transforming themselves into lounge lizards, tapping their feet to Engelbert Humperdinck and flipping their tiddlywinks, all in the name of kitsch. Even the Ministry of Sound has joined in and set up board-game chill-out areas.
If you need to know what's hot and what's not - in the world of board games, Jenga is the top-selling family game with Monopoly, Frustration, Scrabble and Connect Four hot on its heels. Proof that there is life without Mega-Drive.
