I like games. Word games in particular. When I got back to the U.K. after Christmas, I started carrying around Scattegories and Quiddler everywhere I went. You know, just in case anyone wanted to play a random game or three. And I wasn't alone. I had dinner at The Charles Lamb; people were playing dominoes. I had lunch at The Peasant and people were playing cards. We had drinks at The George Inn, and people were playing something.
I declare 2009 the year of games in pubs. People can't afford to go out big-time anymore. We're getting back to basics. And I'm wondering…why did we ever gave this up? Games are fun. And cheap. I think I'm going to take up mah-jong.
Are people playing games in your local? Where? And can I play?
