Qwixx: One of the favorite games played at Shakes Manor!

Here is a thread for discussion of all things gaming: Board games, card games, video games, dice games, role-playing games, strategy games, party games, whether you play in groups or on your own. Tell us all about the games you love!

I haven't played anything new lately, so today I'll just share a pic of one of my favorite things — my Atari Touch Me, the only handheld game that Atari released, a version of their arcade game of the same name.

The party game "Simon" was a ripoff of Atari's arcade version of "Touch Me," and Atari tried to compete with "Simon" by releasing the handheld version of "Touch Me" in 1978.

Suffice it to say, "Simon" won that battle, but I nonetheless love my little handheld "Touch Me" and still have fun playing it.

What game(s) have you been playing lately?
