Today, I start giving away games…seems appropriate since Christmas season tends to be the only time I play them.
I give this game of checkers away to the RID pile today…one of these easiest RIDs I’ve done to date.
Why? Because I prefer games with more energy, more strategy, more collaboration. This game, checkers, is a bit of an evil game to me.
Every man for himself. War metaphors. People just trying to beat someone else.
I’ll keep my other games – games where people work together, create new things instead of just moving the same pieces around on the board all day long.
And games that teach you something…that grow you.
Goodbye, checkers. You are truly the minor leagues of board games.
At least in my opinion.
