The Good Old Days

Do you remember the good old days?

I suppose everyone has their good old days, and what this means has changed significantly in the last 50 years or so, I'm sure. From my point of view, I remember the days (I suppose it was the early sixties) when families played scrabble or cards or monopoly together.

Scrabble is still a great game and doesn't cost much (even the deluxe version, which is well worth the extra cost, is about the price of a video game or less). It can be played by a wide range of player ages and a game can be played in several minutes or an hour or so, depending on your enthusiasm. With such a varied pool of word and placement possibilities, every game is fresh and new. This game has been recently enjoying a resurgence in popularity worldwide. For those who are interested in words, here is a link to The Free Dictionary website.
