I am seriously like the Bobby Fisher of all things board game related. I once went two months without losing a game of Scrabble, and Iâ€™m a terrible speller. (Thank God for spell check) Last time I visited Costa Rica I brought along Magic the Gathering cards, lame I know, but tons of fun.
My travel buddies and I would be sitting around a hand made table, dirking cheap beer and smoking special cigarettes, while we played this lame fantasy card game. Youâ€™d think every passerby would attempt to steal our lunch money and gives us wedgies, but they didnâ€™t. In fact, youâ€™d be surprised out how many people stopped and wanted to play.
Ever since then I have made it a point to make some room in my backpack for games. Games just seem to be an instant ice breaker, but go and add some grass and a bottle of rum, and itâ€™s a downright bonding experience.
