I mentioned before that I've become completely addicted to the word games on Facebook. I love word games and solitaire card games and those games where you match the same colors of whatever together and they disappear, dropping new ones down or clearing a board before they reach the end. (Did that make sense?) Even when I have no energy or brain power for anything else, I find games like that (even word games) to be mindless, fun distractions. Time wasters, for sure, but sometimes exactly what I need.
Question of the Week?
What types of games do you prefer?
I also love interactive, non-computer games, as does Londo. We love card games and board games (except I don't really like the types of games that require a ton of set up or that you have to track a bunch of things). We both grew up playing a lot of card games and board games with our siblings, and we can't wait to share this with our kids.
Some of my favorites include: Yatzee, Gin Rummy, Rook, Fluxx, Rummy Cube, Life, Cranium, Connect Four, Othello, Scattegories, and a ton of other board games from Candyland to Monopoly. I highly recommend all of these and created links for the ones I thought people might not have heard of. I'm happy to explain and rave about any more in detail, if anyone requests it!
How about you? What types of games do you like? Any favorites you want to share? I love to learn about new games!
