"In an age when electronic games consoles dominate so many people’s leisure time, Farscape’s aim is to offer the ultimate, reliable source for the kind of games that encourage friends to meet up, and families to pass fun-filled Sunday afternoons together".
We both play card games, board games and PC games. The grandchildren all love playing board games and card games and they have v. quickly become numerate doing it. We have piles of them here and the kids seek them out and want to play. A game of complex Rummy or 7s is a wonderful way to spend an evening with them, and its keeps them from the Playstation and TV and makes their brains work a bit as well adding some personal skills.
We're out tonight playing Bridge.
As for games being sad in any way, I couldn't agree less.
