I guess I’ve never really been a big fan of board games, I just tend to lose interest after a while. Me and my friends used to love playing on a board game based on ‘The Walking Dead’ but that’s about it.
I do find something calming and satisfying about jigsaw puzzles, however.
Hehe no problem Anita 🙂 That’s true Joe. I too lose interest and with technology so readily available these days, I ve forgotten how simple were the days when we would have fun playing with friends. I felt like maybe I can involve friends and perhaps family to play board games and see how it turns out.And I agree jigsaw puzzles are calming.
Ooo thanks Vikie, I ll look up these if I can order on the Internet.
My Mother is 80 and is a cut throat scrabble player. I use scrabble as a way to spend time with her but keep things positive. She has played for years. This summer my sister and I got her to move closer to the neighborhood we both live in.
I have now finally gotten good at it, and instead of humoring her love, I now love to play. She and I are fiercely competitive and I almost win 1 out of 3 games. She used to beat me badly. It amazes me how sharp she is.
board games are a great way to spend time with each other and stay off the “aint it just awful” rut mothers and daughters can get into.
