|Indian Game of Snakes and Ladders|
19th Century Gouache on Cloth by Jain Miniature
But closer to home I looked for what games we still had hidden away. Specially for today I dug out this from the top shelf of our hall cupboard,
This is a game at which I rarely beat my wife. I do better at a game of chance.
The warranty slip inside the Scrabble box is dated 1993 but the Yahtzee must be much older than that.
Meanwhile there is not much point in just two of us testing our general knowledge.
I never was very good at the entertainment category and as the rules for this game are dated 1983 it shows how out of date it would be today.
The Scabble rules are still in pristine condition.
Of more interest is the pamphlet inside the box promoting Family and Adult Games.

I'm just hoping you can read the names of the games. I confess to being "Baffled" by the "Battle of The Sexes" and would need to take a "Wild Guess" at what they are about. Most of all I must take note of the warning "Mind Your Language."
I guess I prefer outdoor games but I would have to travel to Scotland to play.

Other games in the park which looks across the Firth of Clyde to Gourock include Draughts and (where I started) Snakes & Ladders
Perhaps I should just check other games at Sepia Saturday
