 Board games aren’t boring!

Who doesn’t like to play games? We’ve got an episode for you all about board games, which ones are popular in Canada and which ones Harp and Maura have memories of playing. Have you heard of The Game of Life? Do you know Monopoly? Listen and learn here about games and game vocabulary.

Maura Harp

Harp: I’ve played a lot of checkers when I was young, but never chess.
Maura: Yeah. Checkers is pretty easy to play. There aren’t too many rules. I’ve probably played chess once or twice and I just wasn’t interested because there was so much memorizing with all of the rules. And if you wanna get good or enjoy playing chess, I think you have to keep playing so that you just start to know the rules by heart.
Harp: Yes, I agree. And it’s a game you always have to think a couple of steps in advance. I think now, present. “If I move this little piece, what does that do?” That’s it.
Maura: What are some of the other top games on the list?
