Even in College, many friends would often get together and play Poker and other card games. We would often play BINGO in between tables just for the fun of it and for a gamble to get the next buy in pot. Unfortunately, my level of maturity was not in the right place and I took the enjoyment to the wrong places as Casino were readily available near me. I would often find my myself using my food budget for playing and it was tough to get past it.
Given these experiences, I really walked away from gambling in general and even had to start applying this mentality to my investing as I found how it also had implications there. Particularly after the boom and bust of the dot com bubble, there were a number of bad investments where it was really a gamble and no logic behind my decisions. I also learned the hard way after the bust but at least the boom was good enough to get me what I needed to finish College comfortably from the gains made.
During my quick weekend trip with the family, I crossed paths again with BINGO on a cruise ship. I was hesitant at first my my daughter was curious and she recalled a time we played BINGO with the family back home. As she associated it, she asked to play so how could I deny her. I was surprised how technology has impacted the game as now cards were given out on tablets with automatic number detection. While I was hesitant with it, it was very convenient as the alternative would limit the amount of cards that could be played.
We enjoyed it as we got close a number of times but technology sure impacts the speed of games. Given the ease with which people can track the numbers automatically, the games were fairly short as there were some very lucky people. One game lasted 5 numbers to of a possible 4! It was fun and I took the opportunity to give my daughter some stories of these challenges in the past. I even went deep into how these games impact our behaviors and psychology! Maybe too soon for that but this world is getting faster every day!
