I was reminded of my love of 500 after posting in the "What do you do on weekends?" thread. http://forum.earlyretirementextreme.com/topic.php?id=306
Does anyone play? Not rummy, the kind with four people, two sets of partners.
My parents learned in a class in high school, as I guess was typical then, so I grew up playing. I feel like it's a dying game amongst my generation.
I love games like this where you can think and strategize. I can't stand playing "roll the dice" games where it's mostly chance.
Others I enjoy are Taboo and occasionally, Risk. I learned chess when I was younger, but too boring for me. I like games with more people where you can yell and discuss, etc.
These games are a great source of really inexpensive fun.
Anyone have any to add?
