Don’t Be Bored, Play Board Games
It seems like now is a good time to start thinking about things to do in the event that well... we find ourselves a little more bored than we had expected for Spring Break.
With kids at home and "nothing to do Mom" this might be a great time to turn off the television, turn off the phone and go a little old school with a board game. Or two. Or three, fine... four. No, five. ( It might be a looonnggg spring break).
Here is iwillnevergrowup.com's list of 20 Best Board Games of All Time.
- Chutes and Ladders
- Axis and Allies
- Trivial Pursuit
- Connect Four
What's your favorite board game and who in the world has ever heard of Othello? Did you even know that was a board game? Be honest.
Even if the idea of staying in for weeks on end with just your kids and board games makes you want to pull your hair out, it's at least been really fun today running around the office asking our office mates what their favorite board game is of all time.
We'll start the list and you are free to add your office's list of favorites too!
Charlie Mac says, "Call to Adventure". "You can win two ways; points or who has the best story at the end!"
Wes offers,"Life." "I don't remember the name of the place you didn't want to go, only that you wanted to end up in Green Acres."
Melissa says, "Checkers." " I love strategy."
Ronnie offers, " Trouble." " It brings back fond memories of my uncle and I playing it late at night and pressing the center bubble in the game as quietly as we could so the popping sound didn't literally get us into trouble!"
Randy says, " Chutes and Ladders." "I like to slide."
Taylor offers, "Wahoo." It's little marbles and dice. You can jump people and stuff."
Ingra Lee offers, " Sorry." " Except sometimes I would feel oddly guilty sending friends back to the beginning. Sorry."
JP says, " That's a tough one. We played board games all of the time."
You have to choose one JP.
" Monopoly. Or wait...Cranium."
JP, have you ever played something called Othello?
"Yes, a few times as a kid."
You've never played Othello.
"Yes I have, it's green and black and white."
Oh, wow, you have played it!
Well, there you have it, our favorite board games of all time. How about you?
Here is a quick video to teach you how to play Othello by none other than Howcast. Or you can ask JP.
