How Classic Games Have Changed
Growing up my sisters and I usually always got one new game for Christmas.
I'm not talking about a new game system or video game for one. I'm talking about a board game that takes interaction with other people. Monopoly, Scrabble, Yahtzee, Battleship, and Clue to name a few. My family also loved to play cards. Rook, Uno, and later we bought from our school fund raiser a card game nobody had ever heard of...Skip Bo. After several years of Skip Bo only being available through fund raisers it was bought and marketed out in the big discount stores. The last couple of years a new favorite has been Mexican train dominoes.
It amazes me how these classic games have evolved and increased in price. You have electronic Monopoly, Battleship, Uno, and Yahtzee.
I like to stick to the more basic, non-electronic versions when buying for my boys.
The game bought this year is...
It comes in a compact case. I'm hoping it will be a good down to earth game my husband, son and I can play together on the cold bleary days ahead of us. The price was reasonable and frugal compared to other games too. $9.99
