Tomorrow on the KAXE Friday Morning Show we're going to be talking about board games. In recessions, board game playing and purchasing tend to go up. In the first part of 2009 board game sales have been up 10%. Apparently people are doing more "staycations" and are nesting at home and getting to know their friends and families better. (I'm assuming arguments are included in getting to know people better!)
Tim Walsh is back on our show tomorrow morning. He's the author of "Timeless Toys" and created the game Blurt as well as Tri-Bond.
So what's your favorite game? I asked around KAXE and here's what we came up with...
Scott Hall: bananagrams
Jennifer Poenix: Scrabble
Linda Johnson: Scrabble (WITH DICTIONARIES AND A 2 MINUTE TIME LIMIT)
Mark Tarner: Trivial Pursuit
Maggie Montgomery: Monopoly
Chad Brandt: Sorry
Doug MacRostie: Aggravation
Dan Houg: Scrabble
and me? BOGGLE, definitely BOGGLE. Though I can never find anyone to play it with me.
Goons Be Gone - Coming from a long time fan and ice hockey enthusiast, I simply have to say - goons be gone. Cheap and dirty play like this tarnishes the game, the league....
