Winter fun

February 9th, 2018 · No Comments · Books, City Library, Uncategorized

When there is a Nor’easter roaring into town and the winds are so strong you can’t go outside, what can you do? The snow is drifting, the roads are impassable, and no one wants to go out, not even the dog. The opening ceremony for the PyeongChang Olympics is later tonight but what shall we do before that time?

Let’s get out a board game so all of us can play while we wait for the Olympic Games to start. We have several to choose from and there is sure to be at least one that we can all agree to play. Or perhaps a game of cards would be more fun? Whatever we decide to do, we have only to look at Hoyle’s rules of games: description of indoor games of skill and chance, with advice on skillful play if we need to check on rules. Find this book, and other books on indoor games, on display in the library rotunda.

So what shall it be? Monopoly, backgammon, or checkers?
