My Nominations for the PHC Top 3 Monthly Contest - Board Games

in phctop3 •  11 months ago  (edited)

This is my entry into this month’s PHC Top 3 contest.

This months topic is BOARD GAMES

I must say that I'm not a board game lover, since I was a little girl I've been characterized by being a faithful follower of video games, since I have use of reason to love to play with an Atari, Nintendo, PlayStation, and all kinds of video consoles. Nevertheless I remember some games that I saw my cousins play, and here I show them which were my favorites of them and one that I discovered being in the university, and even from time to time when reuniting with old friends we played it. Enjoy!

My Nominations are:

Nomination Number One


My Reasons for the Nomination

This is one of my favorites and I still keep my game well kept, I plan to use it when My Mathias this great, I find one of the most educational board games, it forces you to have a good spelling, and if you do not have it simply these finished, I am maniacal of good spelling. It's been a long time since I played it again, at home everyone is working on their stuff and we don't have much free time to share with this kind of games, however I remember the fights with my siblings because they invented words from nothing, they are really good memories.

Nomination Number Two


My Reasons for the Nomination

I think this must have been number 1, but no, let's leave it in this position, the domino brings back to me many memories of my childhood, it was the favorite of my father and my mother, and whenever there was a family meeting they took out a table with 4 chairs and a game of dominoes, I loved to see them play in pairs against another couple of players, I saw the complicity in their looks and how they knew how to communicate without talking, and this is what this game is all about, strategy, analysis and thinking a little more than just putting pieces together. This is another aspect why I like this game, you have to make use of our mathematical skills and even statistics and probabilities, is a game that really brings emotion to the moment.

Nomination Number Three


My Reasons for the Nomination

I'm an engineer, and in my country Venezuela an engineering student who doesn't learn to play this particular game, I simply fail as a student hahaha, I remember that in the long nights of study we always took some free time to play cards, and that's how I got to know this board game, not at all boring, which is played with Spanish cards, many play for money, but I did it for fun, because you have to have some mental agility and statistical analysis to guess what cards your opponent might have. It can be played by 2 or 4 people, the latter being the most used and the most fun, you have to be aware of the "songs" that has each move, and also do a little of the use of suggestion and "deception" often making your opponent believe that you have very good cards when it is not so. It's really fun.

Nomination Number Four


My Reasons for the Nomination

Chess is one of the games that most call my attention, I also have many years that I do not play it, however I can say that I love the level of demand it has, because you have to have a mental agility developed enough to play against the opponent, although some digital versions have come out, is still more exciting the classic board game with its board, seeing the worrying face of the opponent when you are winning and the time in the clock is running

Nomination Number Five


My Reasons for the Nomination

Who didn't rejoice as a child with a pile of bills in his hand, and imagining himself the owner of an entire city? Monopoly made many dream, including me, that they could be owners of shops, houses, buildings and all kinds of real estate, well maybe they are not all like me hahaha and just me and a few of us have had that dream of wanting to dominate an entire city hahaha, ok I said my true intentions. Well if you are one of the people who like business this is undoubtedly one of the best games to get started and start managing your earnings.

Now, I've named 5 games for you, and I only have to choose 3, I always overdo it. Although I find it difficult to decide, here is my final selection:

    I see it as a game similar to the pocker, but with Spanish cards, quite entertaining to tell the truth, good that you liked it!

    I'll have a look into it. If it's like poker then it's a great game indeed

    Well, yes, the most classic thing really, I'd say, I'm more inclined towards video games, but it's always good to have these games on hand.

    I used to play a load of video games when I was younger. Mainly atari, snes, psone and 2, n64, game gear and pc... OK that's more consoles than I thought lol!

    But yes, good to get away from the screen and play something else from time to time...

Besides cards, dominoes was my grandmother's favorite. We would often switch to that after a few games of cards for some variety. Great memories!

    I had to do it, I could not stay behind hahaha, the truth I had a lot of fun doing it, because it brought back beautiful memories, and I think this is what this contest is all about. Greetings!
