Going to leave this post up a couple of days, back to fairy tales on Wednesday.
Alex Cavanah has come up with another fun blogfest for us to enjoy. It’s All Fun and Games Blogfest
Just list your three most favorite games and why. Any kind of game including but not limited to; Board games, card games, RPG, video games, physical games, drinking games - even mind games! If it’s a game you enjoy playing, this is the time to share. Join us in the fun!
So as for me, I am definitely a board game kind of girl. Never really been much into video games, the controls always made me crazy.
When I moved to Norway 27 years ago there was one thing in my suitcase that I had to have with me. It weighed a ton, but that did not matter. Clothes could make room for my Trivial Pursuit game. Lucky for me I did take it with me. All games here are in Norwegian, and since I did not speak the language then, or know any of the norwegian pop culture questions, not to mention the other "Norwegian" very foreign categories, this made me very "Game" lost. So why is this game important to me? I had a friend with me in a foreign country, a piece of America that I could always take out and play, making me feel for a little while as if I was home.
This is the game I grew up, one of the only ones that would keep us occupied for hours without watching the TV. The norwegian version is a bit different when it comes to names of streets and such, but the tradition of playing monopoly with my own family as given us hours of fun, and actually still does.
How great is it to build you own town, well I can tell you I got so addicted to this game and the following Sim additions that I left this world completely. I guess you can say I am a recovering Simaholic and I should be attending SAA.
College included alot of charades, drinking games and strip poker. Games have changed alot. Many you can play online or even on your telephone. For me, games should be played with friends or family around a table. They should encourage discussion, teach us fair play and just be plain old fun. Call me old fashioned.
