I hope you’re having a good one! As you can see by the title of this post, today I’ll be talking about board games!! I got the idea cause I was playing Monopoly yesterday at home!! Now get ready to discuss about this topic!
I like board games in general, of course there’s some board games I don’t like, but right now I’m not gonna talk about that, I’m just gonna talk board games.
I think lately board games are kind of extincting – if I can call it that. When I was in elementary school, I used to play board games with my friends every time we had time; at break, when the teachers let us do whatever we wanted… We used to play mostly cards. I think we’ve also played chess as well.
Now, in high school, we’re not playing THAT much. There used to be a chess board in every class. Right now, I think they’re all kept in the library, because pieces get lost every day. But now, every time we have free time and stuff, people just go on their phones – it’s forbidden, before you ask, but people still do it. There’s always at least one kid in class checking their phone, always.
Now let’s talk types of board games:
I don’t dislike chess, I don’t love it either – it’s ok. I know to play, but I don’t play much because I’m not a big fan of it. What I don’t like about it is that it last a really long time and it makes me tired most of the times. I’ve played with my father, it was cool – but I’d not play with my friends. As I’ve already said, my friends played chess, but I haven’t played with them. It’d be fun to play with them, but I never have – not because I’m bad at it, which I shouldn’t care about, but they don’t have the rules clear. I’m not a crack at it, but at least I know the rules. You know how boring it is to play with someone who has no idea?
Also, I like seeing people win – I can’t explain it, but it makes me feel like watching a movie, for some reason – it’s like so dramatic!!
It’s been a long time since I played poker for the last time. I almost don’t remember a thing. I know that you have some cards and the other person can’t know if you have good chances or bad ones. You also have to bet. Anyways, when I played this game with my dad, he would win because my so called poker face isn’t really convincing. I love the song, but I’m not pretty good at making it, I’m still learning today.
Monopoly’s by far my fave board game!! I remember the first time I played it was with my grandmother and she had an old version of Monopoly which is sort of equivalent – it was called World Tourist. I loved it, I loved buying places and travelling and getting money!! I’s like to be a millionaire when I grow up, I guess this is kinda why I like it so much. Nah, but it’s also freaking fun!!
What I also like is that you don’t have to be smarter than the other person to win, you just need luck!
I love Jenga! I’ve played this game countless times! The only drawback is that you can’t play during night cause you’ll most probably bother your neighbors. The coolest thing is that you don’t have to learn a lot of rules, just a few! You need basically to be careful, nothing more. Well, also people can cheat, or distract you, or push you.
What’s cool also about board games is that in winter, as you can’t go out much, you have plenty of time to have fun with your friends and family! And it also doesn’t require WiFi, huh?
I remember in winter, there used to be a lot of board game commercials. Monopoly, Clue (which I also love), Rummy (which I’m also really into), stuff like that – but now I don’t see many of those. Now that I think about it, I don’t see board games much at the stores, how weird! I guess you can have all the board games you want on your phone for free, but it’s not the same!!! *cries*
Do you like board games? What’s you favorite? How many board games do you have at home? I think I have about 14! I’m not playing much board games lately, but I’ll be playing more from now on! They’re pretty cool!
I hope you enjoyed this post as much as I did making it! Lemme know if you have any funny tales about board games, I’s love to hear from you! Before I go, I hope you have an awesome day!
