Fun and Games

How often do you sit down with your partner and play a game?

Español: Torre Jenga cayendo.

I’m referring to old fashioned board or card games.  The things we used to play before technology took over!

I love playing games.  I don’t believe age should be a barrier. I’d rather die laughing than bored.

My favourite games are those that don’t involve much skill but require you to be silly.  I like Charades, Who am I or Pictionary.  I like games that require me to get off my bum and act silly.  It’s embarrassing but that’s what makes it fun.

When I’m in a more serious mood I reach for Scrabble or Battleship. When I’m in a competitive mood I enjoy Draughts (Checkers), Backgammon or Chess.

I don’t have to win although sometimes if I’m feeling a little cheeky I will make a bet with my partner and then there’s no stopping me.  Out comes the competitive streak!

I’ve recently started completing jigsaws.  They’re kind of fun although at times they’re also frustrating.  I buy the ones with a maximum of 500 pieces as I have a limited attention span and I like ones with interesting but not too difficult pictures.  I have one on my table at the moment of cats sitting watching a movie while eating popcorn.

I’m always on the look out for new games, anything that’s quick and easy to learn.  Have you ever played Pass the Pigs ? It’s a must play in my book.  Simple and silly.  You can carry the game in your handbag or even in your back pocket so there’s really no excuse to choose technology rather than a game.

I’ve also found that most people are willing game participants, you just have to ask.

I challenge you to have a games night this week (after the kids have gone to bed).  What’s your favourite game?  Is there a game I should rush out and buy?

For those of you whose mind has wandered into R-rated game territory, stay tuned for my next post.  Of course I own lots of those too but sometimes acting like an innocent child without the overture of sex is more enjoyable.


  1. Games are great! My husband and I play a couple of times a week, it’s great for bonding, laughing, and relaxation. Scrabble is the game of choice most of the time. For during the day, I have a jigsaw puzzle ap on my iPad that keeps me relaxed for hours. More people need to turn off the TV and turn on actual interaction with their significant others!

    • I like Scrabble when my brain’s switched on! When it’s switched off, it’s too hard to think what to do with 5 letter Es an X and a T ! I hadn’t even thought of a jigsaw app…. those techno-nerds think of everything. 🙂

  2. We’re a big board game family, all time favourite is Scattegories.
    OH and i play a lot of cards on holiday – sunsets, gin rummy and gin&tonic.
