A go-to favorite game of mine is Scrabble. Always has been. When the family gets together there’s a good chance we’ll pull out the game and start playing. My sister, Sandy, and I even take it with us when we travel. And yes, I’m a big Words with Friends fan, too (as evidenced by the number of games I have going at any given time).
When we were together over the holidays, Sandy said something about why I like Scrabble so much. She thinks it is because I like things with a definite beginning and end, that I can’t stand when things take longer than they need to and I just want to get things done.
That got me thinking about what your favorite board game says about you. She is right-on with her assessment and it certainly describes me in the workplace. As much as I like other games like Monopoly or Life, I get frustrated with how long it might take to finish. Willing to play a game of Battleship with me? Bring it on!
What do you think – do you prefer games of strategy that may take hours to finish? Or are you more like me? Somewhere in between?
