Bored Games
<center>https://www.fionasfavourites.net/wp-content/uploads/2019/07/PHCTop3_July2019.jpg</center> <br/>There is not one board game in our house.  When I met The Husband, there was an ancient game of <strong><em>Trivial Pursuit</em></strong> which arrived as part of the final merger.  Somewhere, though, over the last nearly 20 years, it's gone.  I think it got thrown out <strong>because</strong> it was so old...

<center> <img class="wp-image-5480 size-large" src="https://www.fionasfavourites.net/wp-content/uploads/2019/07/Trivial-Pursuit-1024x682.jpg" alt="" width="640" height="426" /><br/> <a href="http://lorierosenberg.com/article/living-game-trivial-pursuit/" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">Source</a></center>

I loathe <del>bored</del> board games.  As for games evenings, well, I'd rather sit around around a table, break bread and enjoy conversation.  I remember a time when when a group of us would gather at mutual friends' homes to watch the rugby (local and international matches).  When the practise began, the match was followed by a meal - usually a braai or if it was a late-ish match, a winter warmer like a curry or oxtail would be consumed during the match. Of course, the post-match conversation included detailed and scientific analysis which could run the gamut of emotions from jubilation to anger and desolation.  It all depended on whose side had won or lost or the referee's folly.  Generally, though, the conversation would move on to other things.

Then, something changed.  I'm not sure what, and instead of conversation it was either <strong><em>Trivial Pursuit</em></strong> or <em><strong>30 Seconds</strong></em>.  Both games are fun with the latter being my favourite of the two, but having spent well nigh on two hours glued to a television, why?

I have a love-hate relationship with <strong><em>Trivial Pursuit</em> </strong>and quizzes, generally:  although I can be, and often am, a mine of useless information, I don't do well under pressure.  In a quizz, when I know the answer, I'm so happy about it that I develop a temporary Tourette's-like condition and just shout it out.  Often I know I know an answer, but it doesn't appear in my brain, let alone get to my mouth.  Until the following day.  Fat lot of good!

<em><strong>30 Seconds</strong></em>, on the other hand is a bit like charades with cards and words.  Need I say more?

<h2>Games from my childhood</h2>
Cold winter Sunday afternoons were times for board games.  In front of the fire after the parents had had their afternoon snooze.  The entire house, including the dog would take to their beds.  Except me.  Mother gave up on forcing me to have an afernoon zizz.  I just couldn't and still don't.  I'd prefer to curl up under an eiderdown, or in the sun, with a book.

Just another reason for a love-hate relationship with board games:  playing them was not an option.  That said, I will acknowledge that there were times when I allowed myself to have fun.
<h3>So, what were the games?</h3>
Well, I recall for Christmas one year, getting a compendium of games which included everything from snakes and ladders and ludo to tiddlywinks and bingo.  Although I played snakes and ladders, to this day, I don't see the point.  Perhaps I'm a little dim.   Ludo, well, let's just say that it didn't seem quite so pointless.

With tiddlywinks, skill and dexterity are a prerequisite, as they are with Pick-up Sticks which I did enjoy.  Someone gave me a set, I can't remember whom, and I loved them.  Technically, neither are board games, right?

<center> <img class="wp-image-5482 size-medium" src="https://www.fionasfavourites.net/wp-content/uploads/2019/07/PickUpSticks-300x300.jpg" alt="" width="300" height="300" /><br/> <a href="http://www.sciencetoystore.com/contents/en-us/p697_Toysmith_Pick-Up_Sticks.html" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">Source</a></center>

There were three other games that featured at different times in my childhood and all of which were much enjoyed and only ever played with my Dad.  It's a long time since I played any of them:

<center> <img class="wp-image-5487 size-large" src="https://www.fionasfavourites.net/wp-content/uploads/2019/07/Games_Steemit-1024x341.jpg" alt="" width="640" height="213" /><br/> Collage created on <a href="https://www.befunky.com/" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">BeFunky</a> with stockpics</center>
<h4>But</h4>
It's the board games I'm supposed to be talking about. There were two others that we played as a family.  One, I mentioned in passing <a href="https://www.fionasfavourites.net/2019/06/10/television-after-school-never/" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">here</a>, was a present from Granny - <strong><em>Peter Rabbit's Race Game</em></strong>.

<center> <img class="size-large wp-image-5488" src="https://www.fionasfavourites.net/wp-content/uploads/2019/07/Peter-Rabbits-Race-Game-894x1024.jpg" alt="" width="640" height="733" /><br/> <a href="https://www.amazon.co.uk/PETER-RABBITS-RACE-GAME-CHARACTERS/dp/B07B8THFNT" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">Source</a></center>

Mine looked exactly like this and when we played, I was always Jemima Puddleduck.

The other, and more frequently-played game was <em><strong>Monopoly</strong></em>.  We had the South African version and when I ventured, for the first time to one or other of South Africa's major cities, I loved discovering the premium properties in real life:  Eloff Street where I'd shop and catch buses when I worked in the centre of Johannesburg.  Roeland Street down which I'd drive if I had occasion to go to the centre of Cape Town to, among other places, the parliamentary precinct.

<center> <img class="size-full wp-image-5489" src="https://www.fionasfavourites.net/wp-content/uploads/2019/07/Monopoly.jpg" alt="" width="500" height="375" /><br/> Vintage South African Monopoly <a href="http://img.bidorbuy.co.za/image/upload/user_images/246/404246/404246_140902010157_IMG_6515.JPG" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">Source</a></center>

If memory serves, "my" piece was always the iron.  My mother's which I only remembered when I looked at the picture, was the battleship.

I have no idea what happened to those sets which, the research for this post suggests, would now sell for a pretty penny.  I wondered why until I realised that those sets would have been more than 40 years old...
<h3>An unscientific theory</h3>
I am not a gamer.  The closest I get to any gaming is one or other iteration of solitaire.  I will play it on the PC;  give me a pack of cards and I'll play one or other version of patience.  I think of it as "brewing" time for the project(s) on which I'm working.

I have often been struck by the time that the male of the species will spend either on playing a game, or creating (a) game(s) and striving for perfection.  Frankly, I have too much to do - in the kitchen, around the house and just getting on with life.  It was one of my <del>pet</del> peeves that my ex-husband <del>could</del> would live in a pig sty and eat swill and spend all his spare time on a game.  I just didn't get it.

So, my theory is that women actually have a whole lot less free time than men.  Whether we like it or not, managing the home and caring for children is still primarily women's work - over and above what we might do to earn a living.  Time on their hands, and what do men who don't have a hobby, play sport and who no longer hunt for food, or go to war, do?

Create and play games.

Perhaps this <del>scientific</del> notion, in addition patriarchy, could also explain why most of the arts are still dominated by men?
<h2>My favourite three board games, if I were to choose?</h2>
<ol>
 <li><em><strong>30 Seconds </strong></em>must top the list.  It can be <del>serious</del> educational and fun.  It can be played in teams which makes it elastic, and more fun.  It can also be played by people of all ages and "skill" level.</li>
 <li><em><strong>Draughts</strong></em> - I'd love to play this again.  I recall watching folk play this on the streets of Johannesburg:  the games were as fast as the lightning of a Highveld thunderstorm.  I loved playing this game with my Dad.</li>
 <li>Finally, and it's just for sentimental reasons:  <em><strong>Peter Rabbit's Race Game</strong></em></li>
</ol>
Now that I've got that off my chest, let me explain what prompted this post:

<center><img class="aligncenter size-full wp-image-5436" src="https://www.fionasfavourites.net/wp-content/uploads/2019/07/PHCTop3_July2019.jpg" alt="" width="920" height="304" /></center><br/>

An <del>evil, really nice</del> bunch of people in our PowerHouseCreatives group on Steemit run a themed contest once a month.  It's always about one's <em><strong>Top 3</strong></em> of something or other.  I keep on saying I don't do competitions because I don't do competitive.  I really don't.  But then, I keep on participating.

Ahem...

So far, all the topics have piqued my interest in one way or another, including last month's to which I had absolutely no connection, but which got me thinking.  You can read that entry <a href="https://www.fionasfavourites.net/2019/06/10/television-after-school-never/" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">here</a>.

This month's theme:
<blockquote>
<h3><center>Board Games</center></h3>
<center><img src="https://steemitimages.com/640x0/https://cdn.steemitimages.com/DQmcvVqhGMbF1KAHTn9Wh8FiRhmpAbiEuAKerVM7ugDnXfX/text16.png" alt="text16.png" /><br/></center>Open up the cabinet and blow off the dust, we are breaking out the board games for the topic this month! Get ready to duke it out for your favorite game piece (we all had that lucky one, right?) and clear off the table for a night of fun. Perhaps it was a family tradition to come together at the end of the day, maybe a monthly date with friends, or getting the big guns out whilst the stereo system was playing dodgy Christmas songs! However it happened, we want to know, so share your top 3 favorite board games that you couldn’t resist bringing to the table!

Wow these games are definitely unique. I liked risk, stock ticker, and scrabble.

And, I should have mentioned Snap, Fish and Rummy. I think I played risk once or twice; similarly scrabble. Don't know stock ticker

Haha, well I'm glad we roped you into it for another round!  Always fun to get a little glimpse into the Fiona archives and world view.  I would tend to agree with you on some of your observations about free time and such.  I have seen the "Second Shift" effect quite often in my circle of female friends (and feel it myself sometimes despite not having any children).  Though don't let me get too far off the fun part of this, I'm glad you have allowed yourself to enjoy some times spent around a game board!  Once again I love the sentimentality of the Peter Rabbit game.  We didn't have that one, but I'm sure if we did it would have been a favorite!  Your other two choices sound like a blast to play as well, especially with the right crowd.  Thanks for taking the time to honour us with an entry this month!

Compendium games were so popular when growing up, each box had different games if I remember correctly. Pick up sticks, Tiddlywinks, Chinese checkers, deck of cards to play Rummy. Being 4 children selection varied to what was played (cheated), we had to share, Rummy 4 x 7 cards each always to highest points earned... 

Actual board games Draughts was popular along with Snakes and Laders, as you mentioned we were not indoor children, very seldom we played board games except when doing long trips by train in the evenings, _under supervision_.

This topic I will have to really drudge around memories Fiona, loved what you mentioned, also not one for sitting and playing board games, preferred darts, sling shot (katie, homemade of course), (clay) klei lat made from reeds, yes outdoors always trumped **bored games**!

Board on the wall passes my inspection test, used love dart nights from a young girl. Never stopped the over zealous children in the garden from a well aimed dart _'projected missile'_ into a bum or foot on occasion. We did have fun!

Great choices @fionasfavourites. If I had to be forced I wouldn't think it fun either.  

> So, my theory is that women actually have a whole lot less free time than men. Whether we like it or not, managing the home and caring for children is still primarily women's work - over and above what we might do to earn a living. Time on their hands, and what do men who don't have a hobby, play sport and who no longer hunt for food, or go to war, do?

I completely agree. I am an admitted gamer, but I am also female. I still don't understand how they can just get lost and ignore the state of things around them. The trash is smelling and they won't do something unless told.  You're trying to go do something and you have to wait on them.  Men sheesh 😁

I use to joke that they too the boys off somewhere while we were all growing up to teach them these absolutely crazy skills they have.  I figured it out ... gym class.  It's really the only time boys and girls were separated. Since there aren't many gym programs in schools, it might explain all the crybabies.  I am completely joking by the way.   This is one of those moments my brain takes over.

I think we have found the answer as to why you don't have much free time 😁

Peter Rabbit's Race Game does look like great fun and 30 seconds is one I haven't played before either but the way you describe it makes it sound like a revelation! Draughts is chess' evil cousin though lol. 

Another epic entry Fiona, good luck for the contest!

You have?

Yes, draughts is chess's cousin - evil, I'm not sure...

You know, I don't really remember much about the Peter Rabbit Race game, sadly.  Well, perhaps when, some day, my sons from other mothers have children....I might try to find out ;)

Yes I have 😁

I have lost count the amount of times a game of draughts has ended in a stalemate because pieces got trapped and couldn't move. 

Haha yes send over the spies and see how soon you can get to play that game again

Another epic entry @fionasfavourites

Lots of great games in your full line up. Haha on the 'evil bunch!' &#128513;

I do subscribe to your theory on men and women. I think we have to look back to our ancestors to really understand our urges and what makes us tick. You certainly sparked a good conversation between Jayne and myself.

I have never played 30 Seconds, so I cannot comment on that choice. Draughts is a fun game even though I am really bad at it. Jaime loved Peter Rabbit when she was a little one. We didn't have the board game though. We missed out there!

Thank you, as always, for your great effort in your enrty posts and good luck with this month's contest.

Thanks, Gaz

>I do subscribe to your theory on men and women...certainly sparked a good conversation between Jayne and myself.

I hope not to have contributed to a domestic dispute.... That comment/theory certainly seem to have struck a chord!

Look forward to the results!

What an epic post!!! So you say you aren't competitive, yet you have some interesting board games that you like. I haven't heard of your top 3 but they do sound quite competitive. Perhaps there's a competitive bone in you after all. 😛 

Whos to say we aren't evil? 😈😈

Nah we're great!! 🥰

Hahaha! I you notice that they were mostly sentimental choices or just for fun? Played with my dad; in a team where you have to collaborate and talk sh*t and then last, a game about which I actually have no real recollection? What does that say?

As for you lot: wonderfully evil! ☻😈

Awesome! Thanks for sending over your entry fee, just letting you know that I've added you in with your nominations now!

Good luck and keep your eyes peeled for the upcoming dpoll between 16th - 18th where we put it to the public vote and let the Steem community decide their top 3 :)
