I did learn how to play dama. When I and my brother play a game it would almost always end up in a fight since I would make up my own rules as the game went on to make me win.
Other board games that I remember playing were Millionaire’s Game, Pictionary, Scrabble, Snakes and Ladders, Games of the Generals. It was always fun although I had to restrain myself from throwing a fit when I was losing. I am a very competitive person and I always want to win.
We didn’t own any of those board games. Except maybe for Snakes and Ladders. A gift I received from a classmate on my 12th birthday.
I started toying with the idea of collecting those board games. I know I won’t be able to use them as often as I would want to but it would be nice to own them as a collection.
So off I went to a toy store. I thought these games costs only a few hundred bucks. I was sorely mistaken. Monopoly costs more than 2k. Pictionary for 1.2k. Scrabble for 900. Expensive.
I ended up not buying one. I still plan to collect those board games. Not now. I’m saving up for a new baby.
Have a great week everyone!
