PHC Top 3 Fav Board Games

Board games!! Who remembers playing board games with friends and family???

Everybody at once, "I do! I do!" ๐Ÿ˜

In my childhood, I actually didn't get to play boards games so much. I remember I had a Scrabble game that I played most often by myself. Tough game to play by myself but it did pass the time.

As I got older my stepfather showed me how to play a few other board games. Chess was one of them.

I remember seeing the game before and playing with the different characters but not knowing how to play the game.

After much practice and time, I started figuring out that I needed to plan my "attacks" more if I wanted to win. Premeditate his moves if I were to move a certain pion. This game definitely taught me patience.

The other game my father taught me was Cribbage. I can't exactly say this is a board game, more of a card game....well a two in one actually. The board serves as the points system. The goal is to get enough points to reach the end but careful not to get skunked!

This game had me working my maths skills. Counting my points and trying hard not to give the aponent more points. Another game that takes time to play.

These games are my top 3. The first brings back memories of a lonesome childhood (not a bad thing), and the other two brings back memories with my dad. I think the next time I visit, I'll break out the Crib game and play a game or two. I know his favorite games have to do with cards, like Sequence.

Board games are the best. It seems like they are not as popular these days, and many would rather play the same games on devices, which to me is not the same.

Thanks for the nostalgia @foxyspirit :)

They aren't popular as much with people sticking their faces in technology. It's up to us to keep it going and showing how important it is to stay connected without the screens.

Thank you for coming by!

Nice ones @foxyspirit! I can definitely see Scrabble being a bit tough on your own, but still a good way to work on vocabulary. That's still one of my favorites, though I never did jump on the digital Words with Friends bandwagon too much. I like actually having the tiles and board right there in front of you. That's nice to have those memories with your stepfather, as well. I think you need to have the right kind of teacher to have someone show you how to play chess. Says a lot about his patience. I've never played Cribbage, though I have heard of it. I'll have to look into it a little more to see how it is played. It's not often we play games anymore, but maybe we will dust them off when my niece gets older. :)

I agree, it's better with the board on the table. You can communicate much better too, have a drink and munchies.

I'm not that strong in the game of chess but it does take someone good at it to teach it so that the person learning can eventually get good at it as well.

I think you'd like playing cribbage. If you like playing cards, it's all about planning and counting. It's my go to camping game ๐Ÿ˜

Ah so you were an impatient child before starting playing Chess hey? :D

Scrabble and Chess are classics but not heard of Cribbage before, sounds like it would be good fun as long as you don't get skunked!

Nice one meuf!

ย  ยท ย 11 months agoย 

I was patient, just not with a lot of things ๐Ÿ˜†๐Ÿ˜†

If you like playing cards I'd suggest checking out the game. It really is fun and has that good competitive side to it ๐Ÿ™‚

Solid choices there @foxyspirit

They will be popular, for sure. Scrabble always did my head in and I am even worse at Chess. Jaime plays Cribbage with her Granny. She loves it.
