My three favorite games....

Oh, the frustrations of Not being a technical computer person! I just tried linking up with a blogfest and I'm pretty sure I didn't do it completely correctly... my name is on the list, but I'm not too sure that people will be directed here! Oh well... I'm supposed to put down my three games that I love. I'm going to add a bonus. I'm also going to tell you three games that I hate!


Love em:

Bananagrams: Any word game actually, but bananagrams is my newest favorite game. It's a bit like Scrabble only each individual comes up with their own crossword puzzle. If you are a word person at all, you will love this game!


Pictionary: An oldie, but a goodie. My sister and I used to smear everyone at this game. She would draw for about two seconds and I would come up with the answer. Used to irritate everybody else that played with us! :)


The games that my son and I make up while swimming in our pool: Over the last few years, we have come up with dozens of games. A huge part of the fun is creating the rules and scoring for each game. Yesterday's game was throwing a ball into an innertube. Each ball scored was worth 1000 points until you got 5000 points. then you were allowed to starting betting on each shot. It was a lot of fun, even though my son won each round that we played.

Hate 'em:

In truth, there is only one form of game that I hate and that is the trivia games! I am terrible at them. The only problem with that is that my husband loves them and doesn't really like word games. this makes it tough for us to find games that both of us enjoy.



How about you?
What are your favorite (or least favorite) games?

Hey there! I came over here because of the Fun and Games blogfest because your blog name in the list made me smile.

Bananagrams sounds interesting (one of my nicknames as a kid was Susana Banana so I think that may have a little bit to do with it. :))

I like Scrabble, Spider Solitare and Chinese checkers.

I don't like Poker (can't ever remember the hands) and Risk

Linda my wife gets annoyed with trivia games because I usually win!

I love word games, too. I'm going to have to look for that one.

I'm not sure pictionary would be on my list of favorites - I've played a few times, I'm okay at guessing, but horrible at the drawing part.

Thanks for joining in the blogfest!

Pictionary is the best! My family and I have so much fun playing it together on holidays.

I saw someone else had picked Bananagrams, too. Cool selections.

I love Pictionary when my extended family! They just get louder and louder! Lots of fun.

the 1st time I heard of bananagrams was during this blogfest, now I really want to play it

Bryce Daniels said...

Pictionary is one of those classics! My family made it a ritual during Thanksgiving for years. Helps to know how to draw, though. I'm still wondering why noone wanted me as a partner. HA!

Great fun, thanks for sharing.
LOVE the title of the blog, too!

I think the games you make up are the best and most fun ones to play.

Linda Fischer said...

Thanks for commenting, everyone! I love it when that happens!

Thanks, Alex for helping out a technologically illiterate person once again.

And if you haven't tried bananagrams, try it, you'll like it! :)

I hadn't heard of bananagrams before, but it sounds like a great game, especially for readers and writers. :-)

Making up games is fun as well! :-)

I enjoy both word games and trivia games, but I'm not so good when it comes to modern popular culture trivia.

Oh I do love some pictionary! I haven't played that in years.

Tara Tyler said...

those are awesome! pictionary almost made it on mine and you should try backseat drawing some time. but i especially love that you put the creative pool play =)
