I grew up playing all kinds of board and card games with friends and family. Scrabble, Yahtzee, backgammon, chess, checkers, cribbage, Monopoly, poker, etc. I’ve many happy memories of all night sessions at family reunions or with friends playing games til the early hours of the morning.
I’m sure that Scrabble improved my vocabulary and spelling. Monopoly and poker helped my math. Chess, checkers, backgammon and cribbage all gave me insight into strategy. I still enjoy playing board and card games. The sight of games pieces give me a sentimental feeling filling me with happy memories.
When I saw a Sunday Post photo challenge about what evokes a sentimental value that sparks a memory journey for me; well it was all about fun and games.
