Remember Cluedo, Game of Life, Risk, Scrabble and the favourite (which either made us into bankers, real estate agents or theives) – Monopoly?
On a rainy day or away on holiday you would argue for ages about which game to play. The finally everyone would agree and out came the box from the cupboard. The table was cleared, the pieces were counted to make sure that there were none missing.
The only distraction back them was either the television or the person who wasn’t playing but shared their opinions too frequently.
The players would squabble about the rules so the most trustworthy person (or the one who could read) would hunt for the rules in the box to find them either missing, on the base of the box or Wrong!
The dice would be thrown and lost under the table. Someone would be bored, someone would try to cheat but everyone would have fun.
Ah, those were the days….
