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: Yahtzee … dice 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.
