Ok..let's have some fun with this one....choose ANY game (but not the board game 'Life') to describe your personality and tell me WHY you think it does!

Can be a board game (except Life), a card game, a kid's game (duck duck goose?). But you must explain why you think it fits you!

I would have to say Chutes and Ladders.  Everytime I feel I'm finally getting somewhere, down the greased rungs I go.

"Duck Duck Grey Duck," everybody calls me by the wrong name, and all I ever do is run in circles....

Tetherball--although I am not quite sure if the description includes the entire game, or am I just the ball?  sigh...there I go with perception of reality problems again.

Hmm... well I'd have to say backgammon
..analize and anticipate situations or issues which can be good and at times be not so good

I would side with Alicat (I call it snakes and ladders though...) and for almost similar reasons...

is chess considerable? then that would be the perfect one for me... reasons later...

I read 'Chutes and Ladders' with horror...but fortunately my ally Suddy was there!

CHUTES???

That's not nearly so threatening as sliding down a snake into its fangs at the bottom!!!!

My game?
Boggle.
Without a doubt. Not only do I love words but my life is usually...a boggle...

all over the place...up and down, up and down...

need I say more?

I'd have to say Scrabble

well because I love the game
and how does it descibe me?
well during the game we search for a word or a letter.... AND I'm always searching for something, always!

Hmmm...after much considerable pondering and musing, reflecting upon the economic difficulties faced by looming student loans coupled with a low income job, I would have to change my choice from the aforementioned game, to one called 'The Great American Welfare Game'.  Yawp, and it was a real board game, back in the early 80's.  Right now, I'm stuck in the 'working man's rut', paying left and right, taxes up the wahoo.  Now, if I could just be belligerent, I could end up on 'Easy Street', i.e. Welfare, and live in the lap of luxury (as compared with my present situation, anything would be luxury   ).

Hey I love SCRABBLE too...  

chess actually makes me think hard
scrabble makes me think, period!
but snake and ladders make me think hardly ...


some work hard, others work hardly
either way somethings get done for
those who work hard get the others' work to do,
they complain hard too, but then continue to work...

Ummm after giving this much thought, I would have to say it's the board game, Aggravation. Just when you think you're almost home, ya finally made it, someone comes along and knocks you back 10 spaces,lol. Be hey what doesn't kill us (or make us lose in this case) only makes us stronger huh? This was great fun.

it's a toss up between the following

*darts
*dodge ball
*hide & seek
*chess

if i could explain why, i'd be able to figure out how to stop playing them

thanks for the creative topic

hm...I think I'll side with Satiate. Boggle would definitely describe me, because no one hardly ever understands what I'm saying! And I "Boggle" my husband with my poetry

Well, let's see. I over-analyze just about everything, I try to plan a few moves ahead, and the story of my life proves that checkmate invariably following mating.

Ah, but how much simpler it would be if real life consisted of only 64 little squares.

This is really hard! I would have to say 'Pictionary' because my life has been spent trying to get others to understand what I'm trying to say with the scribblings I put on paper!

In my current state of mind I would have to say Monopoly.  Everytime you get all the hotels and houses set up the way you want, some meanie comes along and takes them from you.  
A bit like my life, someone doing wrong, or 'taking' what I've worked so hard for!
LOL  not a happy answer?  No.. ok a happier one???  Then I'd say 'Beetle' cos you are making something beautiful LOL

I would have to say Trivial Pursuit. . . the pursuit of knowledge has always been a big part of my life. . .

To know others. . . to know myself. . .
