Are the classic board games dead?

Do anyone have interest in board games any longer? I've been a writer for nearly 20 years and I've written about computer and video games in that time, but my first love is still board games.

I like the so-called "Eurogames" but what happened to the great old military board games? Now everything is about conflict resolution and economic victory.

I've actually been working on a game on the history of colonization in Africa, but I had people tell me it wasn't "PC." I mean, who cares... history doesn't have to be politically correct.

It does have to be PC if it isn't about white people.

I love board games.  Today, kids look at them like they look at an abacus (spelling?) but if you get them to play for 5 minutes, you'll get them hooked.

If you want, you can write about the colonization of America.  Just don't say anything positive about the Europeans.

If you want to say that the Inidians sent the Europeans back to Europe were Africans enslaved them, that should be cool.

Nope I play old board games..and i mean old..not your Parker Brother's games or Milton Bradley's lol..but this old Shogi set I have..which Shogi is basically the japanese version of chess I play with my grandpa ALOT. the pieces are carved from this old type of stone and same with the board..It was once my great grandpa's from Japan so it's pretty neat and still in very good shape to play.
