When I travel I’m always surprised about what games are extremely popular in certain countries.


In Turkey it’s backgammon.
In Brazil it’s dominoes.
In Argentina it’s the card game Truco.

I think in Russia, it must be Chess. I visited once, but I was young and unaware at the time.

In Japan; Rock, Paper, Scissors is rampant, but it’s not really a game, just a way to decide things.

In Canada, like a lot of countries, there isn’t one game that everyone plays.

I’m talking about adults, children, and everyone in between.

I feel deprived.
