It Beats Watching The TV

A daily blog about games, family and occasionally random other things. Well, it gives me something to do, and you something to read doesn't it!?

Boardgaming Thought for Friday - Episode 5: The People Who Play Them

It does sound a little trite, that line on the Dice Tower podcast "a podcast about board and card games but most importantly, the people who play them."
But it really is true.
Games are excellent things, often beautifully made and intellectually stimulating, but they don't really come alive until they are played with other people. Don't leave them on your shelf, unplayed; show them, share them, experience them.
Pick up the phone and call, text, tweet, Facebook message someone and set up a game. Do it today. It's Intenational Tabletop day tomorrow, and whilst that might be too soon for some people, why not the next day, or the next weekend? (or Monday, which is a Bank Holiday in the U.K.)

Get something arranged, especially if you've not seen someone for a while.
Have some fun and play some games. It's what they're made for.
And what people are made for is spending time enjoying each other's company.
Go on!

And to practice what I'm preaching here I'm going to get in the car this evening with Mrs B and Billy and we're going to drive 90 minutes or so to go and play some games, but most importantly, to see "the people who play them."
