Dedicated to my Didi, Joy Dada, Tupam Dada(Abhi), Ronnie Dada, Piku and Sags! I really miss us being together.
Almost after 2 weeks, I return! *claps*
Every vacation for me used to mean a trip to Nani‘s place, getting together with 5 of my cousins and playing everything that would come our way. The computer came to a lot later(when we were hooked to NFS!). Here are a few of the games which we played and are still in love with them! I’m sure many of you have must have played them too!
The great GAMBLER
This is our family game(no no no, don’t go by the name, no one of us is a Gambler!). Every family in our house has got this game. This is probably the oldest of all our board games. Vintage hai.
I don’t know what makes me write on these board games but somethings in life sometimes deserve an acknowledgement. Nothing so amazing about this game but we played it and it’s very close to my heart. It is just the basic game of rolling dice and earning money and then the person with the highest bucks win.
Unlike the other games, you have to lose all your money to win it
I still don’t know how to play chess. I’m very bleakly aware of the pieces used to play this game though I feel
The games I played with my Didi–SCRABBLE and PAY DAY
Pay Day is another roll-dice-and-earn-money-game but it had its own charisma. Endless pay day sessions at our home! This game was bought by my sis some 16 years back but we started playing it almost afters 10 years of buying it. You know these games are difficult to understand!
P.S. 1) I and Piku did a lot of treasure hunting- playing loads of games of “Treasure Hunt” in our drawing rooms. But I guess it does not meet the criteria of the board game here, so couldn’t mention it.
