Games People Used to Play

Some favorite recreations….once upon a time in India

Antaakshari – anytime, anyplace fun…songs are just byproducts!

Dumsharaz- enacting to help your team in identifying movie titles without lip movements… mix of drama and wit …

Playing Cards – more about talking and gossiping… good pass time for lazy afternoons…. other versions are …UNO, WWF Cards etc…

Carrom- for people of all age groups and times….night matches are usually preferred…

Chess – Brainy types and strategy oriented folks…. seriousness essential requisite…

Snakes and Ladders- gone are the days…but lovely finding… for simple types….high and lows keep the excitement on…

Scrabble – these days for GRE / GMAT aspirant types…but enjoyable vocab builder….

Business Game – good one to get inducted in business thinking…. there is ‘risk’ as well as ‘return’….Plastic money ….but real fun….

There used to be many others….but the Temple Run, Angry Bird, Fruit Ninja …have changed us a lot…we are now chained to mobile..

Soon there will be a History Channel  documentary on Games People Used To Play…
