Any game players here? Do you enjoy card games? How about games of skill like poker? Or is solitaire more your speed? Or perhaps you prefer a board game? New board games are created all the time... Or do you prefer the classics like chess or checkers? The first playing cards appeared in the 9th century China, but they didn't appear in Europe until the 14th century. Since then there have been countless varieties of card games over the years. Some popular card games are actually common games that are commercialized by game manufacturers. For example, the game 'Uno' is based on the old game called Crazy Eights. Board games are even older, having been found in Egyptian tombs dating back to c. 3500 B.C.E. Some games, such as Chess, depend completely on player skill. Other games, like Candy Land, are dependent entirely on the luck of the draw or the roll of the dice. Many board games, however, like Risk, Monopoly, or backgammon, feature a mixture of luck and skill. Do you enjoy playing games? What sort do you prefer? Do you enjoy solitary games, or would you rather play against friends and family? Let's talk games!
