Revisiting this game 3 years later, I have now heard of (and played) Catan, and it's pretty fun. I don't feel like "I hadn't lived" until I played it though.

In Scrabble, Bingo is slang for using all 7 tiles in the same play, gaining the player an extra 50 points. Not sure it's an official term or not, but very commonly used. Similarly, a Blackout is sometimes used when scoring a Bingo across a triple word score (rarely happens, by the by).

Clue is the nickname, but Cluedo is the full name. Would be nice to see the proper name in there as everything else seems to have the full name. Also, traditional Monopoly doesn't have "Boardwalk" or "Reading Railroad". I'm not sure what version of Monopoly they're from, though.
+2

Apr 29, 2014
I'm guessing you're British, or perhaps from the Commonwealth. Cluedo is indeed the original name, but in the States and Canada, the game is named simply Clue. Also, Boardwalk and Reading Railroad were both on the 1934 gameboard which is the generally accepted 'traditional' setup. The UK/Commonwealth version wasn't produced until 1936.

Duh for Operation. I knew exactly what game it was about, but had no clue what it was called in English. I think it was "Dr. Blubber" or something similar-ish when I saw it. Never had it myself though.

You should accept "Pitch" as well on the clue for "Hearts". All of those terms are used in Pitch games.

It saddens me nobody has heard of Catan.... That game is fantastic. I love strategic board games like Carcassonne, Risk, Catan, China, Doge, Vienna, etc. Go look them up if you never heard of them and go try them out!

No. Is that an Australian name for it? It has various other synomyns. I grew up in UK knowing it as Slippery Ann or Black Maria and never heard the name "Hearts" until the advent of the computer. I suggest that quizmaster should accept many alternative names for this game!

Great quiz! I appreciate you accepting D&D for Dungeons & Dragons, although it's really not a board or card game (so its inclusion in the quiz is a bit odd).

Ah, disadvantaged by my nationality again! In the UK, I'm pretty sure we don't have many of these, and even Monopoly is different here.

Im not from the us either ( or even a english speaking country, uk and us usually have most things in common) but we have all of them besides candyland and euchre. Many have different names though (8 out of the 20, even more I think, but in those cases the english way is used atleast as much)

We always called Hearts "Find The Lady" in my family. Did a quick search and found it called that along with Black Lady, Chase the Lady and Black Maria.
