Board Games Are Cooler Than You Think They Are :: Beday 224

Sometimes over the course of a conversation, someone will mention to me that they are “not a board game person”, and I am constantly puzzled by this statement. I never understood people who don’t like video games or think they’re lame or don’t want to admit to liking them. Because you guys, board games are freaking awesome and also way fun.

It’s not even really just the board game. It’s the concept of getting people around a table for an hour or two and the inevitable interaction that follows. It’s the funny accents that come out, the conversations about random nonsense, and the sense of camaraderie that comes from ganging up against a particularly tough opponent, who also happens to be one of your friends (or family).

There’s a kind of stigma that comes with board games about them being childish or something, but board games are even more fun as adults. Get a few beverages in there and it’s an automatic party. Plus board games are becoming way more interesting, it’s not just roll your dice move your mice anymore.

Give board games a shot. They are a ton of fun. I promise.

About Lananification

I'm a twenty-something Canadian trying to figure out what it means to be an "adult". I've recently moved to England to try to be an adult in a different country. It is just as hard. My Wanderings are travel blogs; sometimes I travel, and lots of times I write about it. My Meanderings are thoughts from this crazy, random head of mine. Songs and Reasons Why happens when I pick a song that means a lot to me, and tell you why, and then let you listen to it. In 2013 I wrote a blog every day for the whole year, minus a couple. Check those out in the BEDAY tag if you want.
