A Square With Dots


I bet board game people were very happy when dice were invented.

and people who weren’t good at Chess … or Checkers/Draughts … or The Royal Game of Ur … or Go … or Mah Jongg … or that spinner thing in The Game of Life.


note:It looks like a great game … but how are people going to get these playing pieces around the board?

double note: like so many other ones, this entry started out very complex before I just went back to the basics … basically … and got basic … or simple … or started thinking about dice and how cool they are.

triple note:       Yahtzeedice not included.

quadruple note: I originally was thinking about the cool horsey move in Chess … if you really must know.
That move should really be used more in martial arts.

quintuple note: sometimes it’s just as important to remember where we learn things as what we actually learn.


notes to myself #121

Our father only plays games with us until we win … then he teaches us another one. I’m not sure if he just lets us win or not. We will never know.
We are solid at Chess, Cribbage, and Checkers: be grateful.

  1. Art Major has about 500 dice. They are all different shapes and colours. “Cube” isn’t the only shape any more. It’s really confusing.

  2. They all look like a church choir! LOL 🙂

  3. the mouths look like belly buttons for a second. lol. I LOVE yahtzee. It’s the only game I could beat my family in. I was forced to play chess with my older brother at home. he was a brainiac, so it was more like, “hey Renee, come here and let me beat you at chess”

  4. Thanks for the comments.

    S. Le: I’ve got a few 12 sided dice, but kids keep rolling them off the table … and then they miss a turn. They know the rules.
    Kids could probably roll a one sided die off the table too … if I had any of those.

    Doraz: maybe those pigs up front are from the Vienna Sausage Boys Choir. hee hee!

    sweetiegirlz: playing Yahtzee with one die takes a long time. hee hee!
