SoCS — Bored Games

“I’m bored, Daddy,” Erica said.

“I am too,” her younger brother Tommy said.

“But you kids love to play Clue,” Ben said. “It’s your favorite board game.”

“I’m bored with board games, Daddy,” Erica said. “I want to play virtual reality video games like they have for Oculus Quest.”

“I do too, Daddy,” Tommy said.

“Well,” Ben said, “Maybe we’ll see if Santa will bring you something like that for Christmas. In the meantime, let’s finish our game of Clue.”

“Mommy, I’m bored with board games,” Erica called out to her mother who was fixing dinner in the kitchen.

“I am too, Mommy,” Tommy said.

“Deal with it, Ben,” Mona shouted. “I’m busy.”

    I miss board games. Nostalgia tells me they were always fun when I was a kid.

    I miss board games, especially Scrabble, but also parcheesi and Monopoly. There just aren’t enough people around to play with.

      True. A lot of word games — even Scrabble — are available on smartphones.

      Sitting around a table with said people, in order to play, is the greater part of the fun. I recently gave one of my sons a game that can be played with as few as three people; it can be kind of a bummer when you don’t have a fourth person.
