I confess, I’ve never been big into games. I mean, I do enjoy a rousing game of Cards Against Humanity, and back in the day I loved me some D&D, but for the most part, games aren’t really my thing. But, when you have visitation with your dad every other weekend and that involves going to your grandma’s where your family members all take naps after lunch while seasonal sportsball blares from the TV and you and your brother are the only kids, you learn to play games. These are a few I didn’t mind playing and others I resented the fuck out of.
Here are the games I resented the fuck out of.
I will forever hate this game. I loathe this game.
Fuck this game, too.
And fuck these little long-armed bastards with their judgey faces.
And really fuck this game. Literally the most boring game ever. And if we played Star Wars we had to play this one, too. Because “fair is fair and you have to share”.
So, what were some of your favorite games? More importantly (to me, anyway), what games did you despise? Be sure to check out Deelylah and Jess‘ posts.

Whaaaat? I LOVE Monopoly. I kick BUTT at Monopoly. Monopoly might be the only thing I am really competitive about. It’s, uh, probably not unrelated that no one ever seems to enjoy playing it with me.
We had that Trouble game, only ours was called Frustration. Which is actually maybe a better name for Monopoly? https://www.amazon.co.uk/Milton-Bradley-411602-Frustration/dp/B002Y0RZTS Everyone was clearly only there for the popping dice bubble, though.
Where do you come down on Risk?
LOL about no one wanting to play Monopoly with you. I’m sure that has nothing at all to do with you being competitive.
Popping the dice bobble is the beeeeeeeesssst.
Honestly, I don’t know that I’ve ever played Risk. I’ve seen it played, and it usually devolved into a lot of yelling so I figured it probably wasn’t for me. Now, I’m curious.
It’s so good to know I have a kindred when it comes to Monopoly! <3 I'm also not a big fan of Life, either…although I think I may have softened in my old age.
Literally one game of Life a year with my niece is about all I can take. Even then, I’m kinda whiny about it.
