Finding Frugal Fun with Board Games
photo by gadl
First, a plug for board gaming that will be appreciated by GRS [Get Rich Slowly] readers. Board gaming is:
- Fun. A single game can provide your friends and family with years of entertainment.
- Frugal. An average game costs $25-$50 (about the cost of dinner and dessert for two at a moderately-priced restaurant) and never expires. This means that you’ll pay only 50 cents for each play of a $25 game if you end up playing the game 50 times.
- Educational. Many games help you develop and practice planning, puzzle-solving, and negotiation skills, making them great indoor alternatives to mindless television.
I have always heard so many good things about The Settlers of Catan game. After reading the article link aboved, I want to play it even more. Luckily, there is an online tutorial available at PlayCatan. Click through the link above fore more recommendations on board gaming goodness!
