Maggie’s subject for Throwback Thursday/ I remember when is Games People Play.
I wrote this shortly after I started my blog in 2013 and it was a bit long winded so didn’t see a lot of traffic.
We don’t have our toy box since leaving the cottage, but would always have a pack of cards. Hubby and I still play crib, we have a Scrabble and Mahjong set, and plenty of Suduku books. Patience we play on the computer (I swear it cheats), and still play words games by letter or name the film from a quote we remember. Best bit about it all is it’s FREE!
Happy memories anyway.
Games can be between adults, children or a mixture of the two. Card games, box games, verbal games, visual games, strategy games, logic games, sports, you pick.
This post is about the less strenuous varieties, those you can play almost anywhere at any time with anyone. No special tools or materials are necessary, and they are intended to relax you, not generate friction or illfeeling, though I know of several instances where the loser was far from graceful, and they were not the child playing! Games are supposed to be enjoyable and fun for all.
My favourites are probably Scrabble and Countdown as I love word and number games. Rather than have a winner and loser in our house, we go for a joint Scrabble score. Our personal best is just under 700, but I have no idea if that’s good in the eyes of the experts, but who cares?…
