Ahhh, the classics, they are hard to beat!
This is the place where I will share my guilty pleasure in playing some old fashioned games. We will talk about the true classics like Chess and Backgammon, but I will also throw in some more modern games that I like that don’t get much love these days.
Rook is an all time favorite of mine, but it seems that not a lot of people play it any more. Same goes for a game we had when I was a kid called Aggravation, a truly great game that is really hard to find anymore.
Maybe you are looking to find info on a great game you remember, or perhaps you want to learn more about a great game you’ve heard of, but don’t really know much about.
For example, Chess. It is the “game of kings,” and has been around for close to a thousand years. With staying power like that, there must be something to it. Right?
I will be giving you my take on some of the great games that have stood the test of time and are still fun to play today.
