Some of my current favorite games are Chess, Go, Monopoly, and Stratego. When I was younger, I used to be a fan of many other games such as Chutes and Ladders. However, they've gotten a bit old for me.
I haven't played Clue that much, so I can't remember what the game was like.

Dungeons and Dragons is basically a fantasty role-playing game but played on a table (which is why it's often called a tabletop RPG). You play with at least 2 players, but the more you have the better except when you get to about 5-6 players. One person creates a storyline with different obstacles and choices for the other players to make. This player is often called the Dungeon Master. The other players control characters who maneuver through the virtual world of the storyteller with their own units that have experience, hit point, and other values. Those players constitute the "party" of characters and try to reach the objective the Dungeon Master has for them.

It does...this is one of the reasons why I don't really play. It would be nice if there could be a "pause" button in the world to actually finish one of those games and not get distracted by other things in life.
Dungeons and Dragons also comes with several hard-cover 300 page reference books.
