Many got stucked in their computer screens playing online games like Angry Birds and Farmville. :)
And like any other electronic related things like social networking, surfing the net, chatting etc. it hurts my eyes, the whole day face-to-face with my laptop makes me feel nauseous. That's why whenever possible, like the net is down, no electricity, typhoon outside, or just passing the time, we play board games! *YAY!*
Mechanics: Shake up the letter cubes and make as many snaked words as you can for 3 minutes out of adjoining letters vertically, horizontally, diagonally and backwards without skipping or repeating any letters.
This is best played with 3 to 6 players. The score depends on the number of letters in a word starting with 3 letters = 1point and so on. If other players got the same word as yours, the word will be crossed out. Only words that no one found will score.
A mind-boggling game! Practice spelling (a dictionary might be handy) while training your sense of alertness, (best for parents with children, it's like teaching them words while having fun) really a good quality time for family and friends. :) Young and adults will both enjoy!
