Board Games

A Monopoly term came up today. This reminded me that I don't see any "hits" in the stores anymore. The same games stock the shelves as when I was a boy. Clue, Life, and of course, Monopoly.

Why is this? Computer games are nice but for social purposes, there's nothing to beat gathering around a good old fashioned board game.

Diplomacy was a game that encouraged social inter-action. Its objective was to conquer Europe. People who played it as a wargame were unlikely to succeed. One had to acquire allies and that required talking. -Good old days!

Some may feel squeamish about eating it, but rabbit has a fan base that grows as cooks discover how easy they are to raise — and how good the meat tastes.
