In your up-bring, did you and your family all sit down together and play your favourite board-game,and which game was it?

I learned to play chess playing game after game after game with my dad. That's one of my fondest memories.
I became better than him and quite a decent chess player, actually. I can beat my dad now about 98% of the time. We still play.
I'm a strong club player with an approximate 1700 rating today. I really caught the bug. I spent endless hours studying the game. After I started beating my dad, I started wanting to beat people who were much stronger than him and I eventually started playing in clubs and national competitions.
In my life, stable employment wasn't always there… a partner wasn't always there… but chess was always there and I generally agree with Bobby Fischer it is ''An Oasis of Beauty in this world''.
And my dad will always be my favorite opponent, no matter how many times I can beat him now. And he doesn't mind playing me. I started getting better than him at around 12-13. I had been beaten by him plenty of times before.
My first teacher.
He was merciless with me as a child.
Take that, old man. ;)

My father and I used to play Monopoly and Checkers. His family didn't believe in playing cards or dominoes, so we played board games. I also used to play Chinese Checkers with some friends.

No, we didn't do this. My parents fought a lot and they would go out to parties. Its quite sad I think. But sometimes when I was with my cousins or extended family we would play this board game called mancalla. It has marbles and 12 holes. Search it up

It changed around mostly due my mother and brother being sore losers to some extent. Monopoly was the main thing we did during rare power outages

Sure, a few times
Not wanting to judge people for this i'd guess?
