Why Play Board Games?
Why board games within the twenty first Century? That is like the 19th Century right? I've acquired a Wii, a PSP, a broadband internet connection and an iPhone. What else do you want?
Well, here are some reasons why I would say you might want to play more board games:
They will surprise you - When you've only ever played Monopoly, Risk or Scrabble, you will be in for a real treat if you break out a number of the new games which might be out there these days. The games are more specialised, more strategic and quite usually less reliant on pure luck. When you liked Monopoly and the building side, attempt Carcassonne. For those who enjoy war games, there are tons like Battlelore and Memoir '44. And Scrabble - how about Bananagrams?
Socialization - Most board games need more than one person. The vast majority require at least one other person. And the nice thing is, that different person isn't half the world away. More, there are tons of award winning games on the market which can be finest played with 3 or more. That means, well, a social life of kinds!
It's not on that machine - After 8 hours at work, the final thing I want to do is sit down and play on the computer for another 5 hours. And it's only because it's given me tendonitis already (sit straight, take breaks and read and apply all the nice ergonomics you can. No, seriously.) however because I just don't wish to deal with that monitor either.
Nothing stays the identical - Each game you play changes because players and scenarios change. Each time you take it out, there's something new. The luck of the draw will shift how you play the game and the way your opponents do. Quite different from a pc game or worst, movie.
All this randomness ensures that each game is new, providing players a new experience in a similar setting. While the principles may hold the same, it is the altering board and rolls of the dice that make the game interesting.
Portability - Even when everything appears to be getting smaller and smaller - well besides my waistline - all those digital toys are still very much depending on their batteries. Portable board games equivalent to Citadels or Blokus will continue to entertain long after the batteries have run out in your different toys.
Cost - Now, this is probably the most important for a lot of of us. A single board game like Citadels or Odin's Ravens comes under the $20 range, less than the worth of a single CD or console game. Lengthy after you have grown bored of listening to the album, you will be enjoying these games.
