Why doesn't anything ever happen after I roll the dice in Jumanji? I just want to be sucked into another dimension for one lifetime - is that really too much to ask?

9. Sorry!

Sorry is the least frustrating overall, unless you're on the receiving end of being knocked back home. Watching your piece fly across the room and having to go retrieve it isn't that fun.

8. Chutes and Ladders

It's all a game of chance. One bad roll and all 43 minutes of your day is completely undone.

5. Life

That stupid twisty thing came off after every other spin. Also, this damn game gave me too many high hopes for the future.

4. Operation

Operation was so hard that when you managed to successfully pull something out you had to go outside for a smoke afterwards. Also, did they have to make that buzzer so loud and obnoxious and tear-inducing?

3. Mouse Trap

The contraption hardly ever worked - if you managed to keep all the pieces. BUT, the saving grace of the game was the commercial. That song was LIT.
