Board Games

The old fashioned board games, the kind where you have to do the adding and subtracting yourself, were the best. I loved counting up my Monopoly money or figuring out my Life points. Now the board games have electronic ways to keep track of the numbers. It goes faster, but it isn’t as much fun. Let’s dig that old Monopoly board out of the closet, shall we? Oh, wait, what about Scrabble, too?

  1. Board games are the greatest, and so are cards. There’s a whole world out there waiting to be enjoyed! Of course if there are only two of you, that makes a difference. But hey, there’s always Cribbage, Mexican Train, Rummy, Spades, and Scrabble like Virginia mentioned. Our dedicated cupboard for games is bursting with adventure at a moment’s notice: Backgammon, Aggravation, Pente, Yahtzee, Dominoes, Checkers, and SkipBo. This sustained quarantine calls for creative solutions and makes me all the more anticipatory for its end, when we can have friends over to play in fours and sixes. Have fun! Make plans!

  2. I love board games; I always have and I always will. In fact, I still have the standards such as: Checkers, Parcheesi, Chinese checkers, Monopoly, Scrabble, Risk and, my all time favorite, Stratego. All these games brought friends or families together so much so that many households have instituted game nights. Today’s society doesn’t accentuate this. Instead, people now revert to texting, Instagramming and emailing; so impersonal and unemotional. Whatever happened to picking up the phone and talking to a loved one?
