Card games and Board games

A change of pace, going to talk about fun board (ha board games fun) games I liked that doesn't need a lot of players at the same time to be fun most of it is 1v1 though. Talking about the experience I had;

Othello,Reversi The game with the circles that have a black ad white side and the objective is to dominate the board with your color.

Checkers A simple game were you just move to the other side of the board to take all of the opponents pieces.

Chinese Checkers Take a side from the star shaped board and jump your way across to the other side of the board first.

Go The game thats not racist to the black piece because, black goes first and all you gotta do is surround your opponent with 4 corners to win.

Chess The game were the objective is to protect your king and, pursue the opponents king.
This is a good place to find real time chess with no hassle, and I was trying out the computer only beat lv 1, on lv 2 the best I can do is make a draw so far.
A recap of me vs a lv1 AI

Shogi Japanese Chess its rad it also have a ranking system play were it makes it impossible to beat guys with 1337 status I don't know all the details on it and I didn't look for a web site with a just play option.

Majong there is many ways to play this game in Asia but i'm talking about the one were the Japanese gamble with it even has some rank system too, I have some links were to play and learn but I didn't add time to learn how to play.

Explanations for the tiles, rules, scoring etc can be found here:

Backgammon I got this game as a birthday gift and I didn't try to play it because I didn't bother with learning the rules but, I think all you have to do is skip across the board.

Connect Four A fun simple game were you just connect four circles.

Dominoes I can't describe it I'm not eve sure if there is different ways of playing dominoes.

I don't know much about the traditional card games, but I did know black jack and poker but I didn't check on the rules to know how to play poker properly.

I love that scent when you buy a pack of fresh cards.

I have a collection of pokemon cards, yugioh, and used to have digimon they got stolen from me when I was a 9 year old at the last day for summer break a classmate wanted to see the cards and,  the teacher took the cards from me on the casual trip, then we did it after school then some 8th grade dude came and riped it off my hands and ran away like a bullet, I know what he looks like even till present I can kick his ass too now but whats the point.;_; So I never collected digimon again and I buy cards less. Well now I got the internet so I can find the cards on the internet. Thee was also magic cars but I never got into it because it wasn't marketed and it wasn't popular in stores let alone the kids.

I was quite the pokemon fanatic(because I use pokemon in my multi game scheme, the one hand play and play another game or, do some thing else)  I had guide books and most of the games not the present games though and I don't want to catch up so I can wi-fi battle.  I stopped with the leaf green, on sapphire were I had caught 360 on the pokedex the legitimate way and, my little sister deleted it surprisingly I didn't react or feel any thing. I had a silver card, I made a 55 win streak in the tower, max money{implying money matters in pokemon when you are 1337} had a decent pokemon stats( I didn't know about the IV/ EV training, because I had no internet, but I was doing it with out knowing it in detail and not knowing the best results possible) it was also a lonely thing I did because my community didn't play it to catch em all or battle strategically so basically  I was the elite guy. My best friend that has picky taste in the pokemon he uses called me a tourneyfag I would like to find better players but I didn;t and I don't make rules thats how the game is made for the battle tower. The battle frontier mad me jizz my pants too.

My face when battle frontier.
If you guys know ay other cool board/card games I would like to know and, mabe we should have a game. I will add a contact me page after I er do past a week of blogging, and don't forget to take it easy. Sorry some links don't work but I will try and fix it.


  1. Thanks for all the info and links! I do love a good game of chess. I've tried Shogi before but I suck at that. I'd love to learn the rules for Mahjong one day, but it looks so complicated..

    I used to collect the Poke cards when I was younger, despite never having anyone to play with ;_;

    Perhaps we can have a game someday : 3

  2. I don't play board games anymore since they seem a bit outdated due to the rise of video games.

    The Pocket Monster games have gotten better over time, maybe you could get back into the series with Black and White.

  3. I used to collect Pokemon cards, but I never actually got into playing it. The first TCG that I played was Yu-Gi-Oh.

  4. Two of my guy friends used to play chinese checkers during math class. They were trying so hard to be like the old Asian guys in movies... They only had the Asian part down...

  5. I love chess when you can say "CHECKEMEITO!!". I only could say it once, though, since I am very bad at it ;_;

    Oh, and that Pokemon trading cards... I remember having a bunch of them and playing with them... alone, when I was a kid. I liked them, though.

  7. Howdy, i read your blog from time to time and i own a similar one and i was just curious if you
    get a lot of spam responses? If so how do you stop it, any plugin or anything you can advise?

  8. First off I would like to say superb blog! I had
    a quick question that I'd like to ask if you don't mind.
    I was curious to find out how you center yourself
    and clear your thoughts before writing. I've had difficulty clearing my mind in getting my thoughts out. I truly do take pleasure in writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are wasted simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any suggestions or tips? Thanks!
