Who taught you to play board games

When I was still a student, my classmates taught me to play assorted board games that they brought to school during Children's Day. I learned to play Chess , Snake and Ladder and Ludo. However now with the latest technology, you can rely on apps games online to teach you to play board games. My son had learned to play English Chess after I had downloaded a Chess app that includes tutorial. Now he can play chess his classmates without feeling shy or embarrass because he had practiced a lot at home with the smartphone .

Well, my grandfather taught me how to play Chess when I was staying at their house during holidays as a kid. He is the Chess "pro" so naturally, he had to teach me how to play. We often played but I lost the majority of the time Who taught you to play board games other games, such as Snakes and Ladders, Monopoly, ... I think that my parents taught me all of those. Every few weeks we had days set aside where we purely played board games. It was so amazing because not only it was fun but we also had a great bonding experience.

Snake and ladders is also a good boardgame to play with family, too. I remember when I was young, we used play it and whoever is the last to make to the finish will be in charge of the dishwashes. That's how simple games are before technology took over.

Oh, that is a clever trick. This helps you to try your best to win in order not to wash the dishes. We played in school for fun. My son prefers to cheat instead of playing the proper way. He keeps turning the dice to 6 in order to gave more turns.

I loved playing Snakes and Ladders. It was really fun because you could instantly win with a few a good rolls. You could even lose due to unlucky rolls because you end back near the bottom of the board.

That is so cool of your grand dad. My parents do not play with me the boardgames. I either play with my younger brother or my classmates. Now I play with my son.

You've very lucky to have a "pro" grandpa. No one in my family knows how to play chess Who taught you to play board games Is that weird? I tried learning online but I still don't get it. The only board game I know how to play is snakes and ladders. I played this game with my sister when were young. Who taught you to play board games

Yes, I did exactly this! I used to practice with my grandfather a lot. At first, he would always beat me but with time I started to beat him. Either I was getting good or he was letting me win haha

Some of us grow up to like chess. Others not so much. I still can't say whether I like it. I find interesting. But the thought of so many other players being truly advanced in the game somewhat discourages me.

You know, grandparents are great players for chess games, they sure are very good at this. My dad is good at chess too.

I learned chess from a book I found at home and I think I played all by myself for 2 years before I played with a friend at school and I was surprised that I was good. I then joined the chess club and several interschool competitions without losing a single game. I thought of becoming a professional but I needed to work so that ended my career as a chess player.

My parents taught me various different board games. My favourite when I was smaller would have to be Snakes & Ladders. I used to love playing that. I never actually learnt how to play chess because no one bothered to teach me when I was smaller. I actually tried to learn recently but I just could not get the hang of it and I just had trouble trying to remember all the different pieces so I gave up.

Same as you. My parents also taught me how to play different board games. But one of my favorite board games is chess, we are opposite lol. I used to play chess with my friends when I was a kid. Until now that we are teenager we still play chess when we hangout.

That's the same with my friends. For some weird reason, they started playing chess a lot regularly especially during our classes. They played the online version of chess so there weren't any physical boards. It was funny because even our computing teacher got involved and started giving out suggestions to those who were playing.

Almost all the games I know how to play today were taught by my brothers.

My brothers were all games and never joked with board game.so I a girl didn't have girls to gossip with,so I had to like what they did.

Actually you can learn to play chess by downloading chess apps. My son did and he learned the steps well because there is a red dot that guided him where to place the chess piece on the board. Now he can play against his chess mates. I can't play well myself

I was taught by my father to play chess back when I was a kid and I also remembered playing snake and ladders taught by my elder siblings and we used to play Scrabbles back when smartphone doesn't exist.

My father was completely against playing any board games because he had one silly experience during his youth age. He was arrested together with all those he was playing with and ever since then, he had a great avarice towards playing any board game. I managed to learn how to play board games online although I'm not that good at it yet.

Me too, my father taught me to play board games especially chess and he have been to places being a contestant in playing chess, he is really good at it, and because of that I became good too in playing Chess, I was able to defeat my teacher at High school and that feels really great.

Well, no body taught me how to play chess, i learned it my self, or should i say the computer taught me, when i was a kid, i was so introverted, i don't go out of my comfort zones. And my dad always check my laptops for video games, if he finds out i installed any game, he will delete it, so that left me with no choice than to stick to ChessTitans when am bored. The computer kept on beating and whooping my ass, for more than 3months, till i mastered the art wizardry in the game Who taught you to play board games. and the rest is history.

why did you dad delete those games you had install? Are those violent games? Boys are prone to play heavy bashing games, it is natural, as long there isn't any porno scenes. However, your dad had helped you to learn to play chess by pushing you into a corner. Not good but turned out good in the end.




Are you sure you want to delete this post?

Authord

The game actually didn't contain any porno scenes, although it has some bikini girls on the boot up, I'm talking about GTA, but I don't think that's the problem. He just doesn't like me playing games, if he had the power he would have uninstalled the chess, but fortunately it came pre installed.
He prefers me having my face bent vertically to my books.

My father always scold me if I play with my computer everyday he doesn't stop until I play chess with him. I never even beat him even once though even though I can't beat him my father always tells me to not give up and if the time I beat him he will let me do what I want so until now I am trying my best to beat my dad so he won;t bother me anymore when I play my computer.

If memory serves me, I believe that I first played board games at my grandparents house with my cousins and my grandpa. The oldest game I remember playing was Mousetrap, but when I got a little older, we would play epic battles of Monopoly and Risk. I eventually got into even more complicated gaming once I got my first Dungeons and Dragons set, and my neighbors and relatives and myself would wile away for hours at that fantasy format. I remember that being a lot of fun. I guess you could say I was primarily self-taught, but we all learned about strategy and proper gameplay through interacting with one another.

Yep, cousins and grandparents had the fault hahaha. I still have memories of the big grandma house, with all my cousins, my sister and me, making my grandparents crazy. So, Monopoly was the big salvation, it had a lot of fake money, we could all play together, and we could send some of ourselves to jail. Also, that game lasted for hours and they could keep us busy. Then we started adding some extra games like, Ludo, Bingo, Parchis, Snakes and ladders, card tricks. I had a blast with them, and nowadays I'm teaching them to my little cousins and god-daughters and god-sons.

I think that most people can share a similar story to yours, just because it's common for older people or at certain family gatherings to be playing these types of games, It's always a good lesson to learn on how to play such games, because they can develop your thinking a lot, especially from a young age and can make you develop some interests that could help you in life as you grow up.

My first time playing a board game was at the age of 12 with some of my close cousins. We played Monopoly and I couldn't stop! We probably played 12 rounds that weekend. Since then I've collected about 20 different versions of the game including "National Parks" and "Dinosaurs". It's a blast!

I started playing ludo game as far back as I can remember. I used to watch my mum and siblings play and I kicked off from there. My older brother taught me how to play scrabble, and I got so interested that I downloaded the app on my smart phone. I'm pretty good at it.

Drafts, this game I had to observe how the grown ups used to do it. It was the board game was the most popular in our place before I grew up to discover other games like Ludo, scrabble and snakes and ladder. I can Confess that my first board game I was taught how to play by observation.

This question brings me back to my childhood memories. It was my mother who taught me the basics of every game. But it was my father who supplied strategies that I worked on and implement on every game I played.

My parents taught me, I remember when I was a little girl we used to play board games every weekend and it was so much fun. We spend time together and it was a quality time, My sister and I get along very well because of that. We used to play Rummikub, bingo, chess, and other board games. We also played a game called scene it where you had to answer questions about movies.

I had a self taught in playing board games. I'm just observing to what others are doing in playing board games. The board games I play are chess, Scrabble and snake and ladder. What I like about board games is you are able to enjoy and also sharpens your mind. Board games are best when boredom strikes you and your friends. Its is an alternative time killer.

My father taught me and my siblings a chess game when we were kids. I still remember those days when my brother and my sisters got a fight because nobody wants to lose a good game. It was crazy but still, it was fun. I'm ashamed to say that until now I'm still slow with this game. I don't know the strategy to win a few moves. Funny but everything goes wrong. Ugh, loser.

Honestly, I'm still ignorant on chess. I've always wanted to learn, but haven't had the chance to find someone with patience enough to teach me. Believe me, I've tried, but sometimes I think I can't remember all the movements from the different pieces. I know it also requires practice, but I feel I get all confused and eventually stop playing it.

My friends taught me to play board games. My first board game that I learned is the snake and ladder when I learn to play this game I feel addicted to it and basically play it all day long with my friends. After that my cousin introduced me to play chess and I don't like it because he never let me win. HAHAHAHA

My uncle introduced me to board games such as Ludo, Monopoly, and chess. I only learnt Chinese chess when I first met my maternal uncle. He was sort of a prodigy in the game so I always lost against him. When it came to university days, I always played 7 Wonders, Risk, Catan and other strategical board games with my clique. We usually played this on weekends. I guess board games are already an integral part of my life nowadays. I still play board games as a hobby and will purchase some games if I am interested from time to time.

I learned from the older kids when I was younger. I went to a lot of Summer camps, sleep away camps, after school programs, etc. I watched all the older kids play board games and learned how to play them that way. My parents taught me how to play as well, as well as a few of my older cousins.

I love this question! My mom and dad taught me how to play board and card games and it just continued to get more and more fun as well as competitive. From the game Sorry to Monopoly and then the card game Spades, We always had a great deal of fun while attempting to destroy our opponents. Now I just love the fact that I have my kids and I can teach them all of the games that I loved so much.

My uncle was the one who taught me how to play boardgame, chess to be exact. I was only 7 years old when I learned how to play chess. He gave me tips and techniques to better play it and what piece should I use for attacks. I enjoyed playing it before but as I grow up I rarely got the chance to continue playing it.

It is my father who taught me board games including chess board. I was only 6 that time, too young to understand the rules. He had bought me a set that had two sets of pieces. One set was the typical plastic people, and the other one consisted of flat cardboard tiles that displayed the movement abilities of every piece. I still remember how I felt that day. I was finally able to use the plastic pieces and I still remember how to move all the men.

When I was in elementary school, my father taught me to play chess. We play maybe an hour or two just to teach me on how to play the game. I remember I can't beat him LOL. But when I start learning, I start to beat him barely. I play chess with my friends and it's always fun playing with your friends because of teasing when someone lose.

The first board game that I have ever played is Monopoly. I remember playing this with my parents when I was around 7 years old. It was fun and interesting for me even up to now. I still play this with my family when we all got some free time at home. One benefit you can get with playing this that you learn about personal finance and budgeting at an early age. I love the colorful board and pieces of this game, I think it's not boring at all!

My father taught me to play board game and the game he taught me is chess. At first, it's hard to memories the rules and regulations of this game. But after several game with my father, I get now the logic behind the game. I also try to think strategies to beat him because I am always the loser. And with my effort and confidence to myself, finally I got a win. I'm thankful to my father that he teach me to play this board game.

I was never very much into board games as a kid, since I always just preferred to play video games. However, there was a period of time where I played chess with my father. He is the one who taught me how to play, and he is also the one that taught me that the world will not show mercy to you, since he always refused to let up and let me win. I can actually respect that because even as a kid I would have felt that simply throwing the game so I can win would make the victory feel empty.

The first one that taught to me play board games was my father, but the board game that I'd really liked back then was chess. After my father taught on how to play, I had always played chess everyday with the older friend of mine that was liked an uncle to me without blood relations. It was literally everyday that we play chess, we play for more than five hours everyday back then. And did I gained anything from it? Yes, because I became really good with it, that when I was still in Grade 2 or 3 there was a girl that became my friend. She was already about to finish her grade school and about to be in middle school. She was always on top of her class each year, and she also liked playing chess. So after she knew that I also liked playing chess, we had played for like three to four times a week since then. But every time we play I had always been the winner of every single game that we played, our standing was like 100 plus to nothing and she can't really accept it, because I was always at the bottom of our class that just get average scores on my card report and always gets on fights with other students. So I think having a good track records on school won't really mean that you can be good or great at anything you do and vice versa, because having a bad or not so good track records won't mean that your going to fail in life and can't be good or great at anything you do. Each person is unique in their own way and you can't compare a person that is good at math versus a person who is good at art. Bottom line is do the things that your good at and also being happy while doing it, because that will be your passion and hopefully your job or source of income as well.

My grandfather is the one that taught me how to play board games. He taught me to play the board game called “Chess”. He told that this board game is easy to learn if I’ll just listen well and I learn fast because of what he said. Nowadays people would take this game seriously because you actually need to use your brain in this game. But playing this game is quite fun unless you lose but it’s always about having fun and doing your best all the time.

My father taught me how to play chess and my mother taught me how to play scrabbles. back in the day, board games are the best way to kill boredom. It's so fun because you interact with other people personally unlike now, your play mates are now virtually. Yes, that's still fun but kids nowadays doesn't know what the real fun feels like.

I learned to play boardgames with my cousins. On vacations we all stayed in our grandparent's house while staying there we found boxes of board games in the attic and we took them to our room and play games like chess, snakes and ladders, checkers, tick-tock-toe, and there are other complicated games like monopoly where we have to read a very long manual to play.

Sometimes I just watch and learn. But there were a lot of times that my sisters and cousins would teach me how to play some board games. It is not easy at first but it is really enjoyable to play. It's more fun playing board games before than now since most games are played in phones or computers. That bores me out when you're just competing with a computer and not a real person.

While I was younger, my parents used to teach me the basic of the most common board games, however as I grew older I'd learn on the streets, that means, I usually would play with some friends just to kill boredom or even join some people in random parks or coffee shops, which is actually awesome, because I've met a lot of interesting people that way, with whom I've exchanged a lot of wisdom, I could say.

Until now when i have a chance to visit their house we still play board games with my niece and his wife. It's really fun playing board games with your family. I don't like playing it on mobile phone or ipad. I can't feel the competition when playing on mobile phone.

I remember playing a board game for the very first time with my friends. So, my friends are the people who introduced me to the world of board games. My family can't afford this kind of luxury of buying board games, so I learn it when one of my friends brought with her a board game and taught me so I could join and play with her.

My father is one of the greatest teacher I ever had he was the one who taught me board games such as chekers, chess, generals, and even tick tac toe. When I was a child my father first teach me chekers and chess which is very interesting in the sense that you actually need to think before you move a piece. Checkers is simpler that chess because the moves of the pieces has only one pattern which is diagonal unlike chess that there are different pieces with different move patterns. I was very fond on playing those board games since it will improve your decision making and strategy or planning. For the generals board game it is a very interesting where the pieces are actually derived to all soldier tanks. Learning board games is one of the very interesting things I will remember the fun and struggle while your playing it is actually a great experience.

I have played many board games when I was a child, some of them with my grandparents and some of them with my parents. My grandparents had a small collection of very old games and my parents have bought me some new ones. I haven't learned how to play chess though because I was never good at those logical games.

My dad taught me how to play board games. The first board games that I played are Ludo and snakes. Those are the games that I used to play during my childhood. Later on I started playing Scrabble and Monopoly with my cousins and siblings and this was definitely fun. Just thinking about this bring back good memories. Nowadays, l play Scrabble with my nephew and niece as this game is very good for kids. It will help improve their vocabulary.

My father taught me the basics of chess when I was about 9 or 10 years old. Then I grew up playing and getting better at school, playing with mates and competing in small tournaments. Nothing too serious. Later on I forgot it a bit, and I started to playing chess again when I was about 16. It's kinda funny, cause now I can see how a kids vision about a game complex like chess it's so naive, yet inovative. It's something that I, 23 years old right now, won't have anymore.

Back when the only thing kids do is play outside the yard when the weather is good or indoors when it's not, I learned board games through my siblings. The first ever board game I learned when I was a little is the Mancala (Sungka). I remembered me and my siblings would compete and build a team to battle with each other. Then we had the ladder and snakes, dominoes, scrabble and monopoly. All of them we learned through the instructions that comes along the game and it was such a fun activity to do while you're with your siblings. When Monopoly came in our country, all four of us chipped in part of our daily allowance to save up and buy the game. As a result, we really took great care of it and we managed to save it and keep it for as long as we can. Now my son learns boards games through the apps and some of the classic games, me and my husband taught him to. He learned to play chess at school and told him to practice playing it in the app. I still gift board games as a gift because I believe that playing together brings so much joy to families. Even though there are numerous ways to play it alone these days, still, nothing beats the old fashioned way of playing with your family.

I learn board games from my eldest brother. he used to teach me when I was 7 years old. He's so funny and cheated me always. I used to cry and he laugh so hard that makes my Mom mad.

I have no time now on board games since i started working. But i can still share my techniques to my younger cousins, nephew and nieces.

I was taught by my cousin how to play chess when we were young since he was the only one who had a chess board that time. We played every time he visits our house until I learned and mastered it and eventually I joined competitions at school or in some local events. I learned some other board games in school since it is what we do in our Physical Education class during the earlier years before doing outdoor games.

My grandfather used to teach me everyday whenever he's not busy. Ah, those good old days, I just can't beat him up especially in Chess. I don't know, no matter how hard I try it's just hard for me to beat him in any way. But, sadly he passed away 9 years ago. If I could just turn back time and treasure the moment we've been jamming together. Thank you for reminding me with his memory OP.

My brothers taught me how to play several board games. We used to sit down and play chess 3 hours a day when we were kids. I love playing with them because they have some great tricks I wanted to learned. I was picked as a chess player at a school competition by one of my teachers in grade school. Playing with people who are really good at it helped me a lot to win that competition.

I learned most of my board gaming related stuff from the forums. I had some forum friends who were into board games. And they used to share a lot of information about it. Most of the typical board games I learned from the parents. Like say monopoly and few others. So those were the days about the board games as well. I can tell you that playing board games with friends and family is indeed fun. And it's something I'd be interested into.

My uncle taught me some board games, and he's very good at it. I always end up losing to him whenever we play, especially chess. Board games also fun but I always feel disappointed because I could not win a single game against my uncle. I think I need a lot of practice to be able to beat him someday.

My dad, despite his really busy schedule, took time to hang out with me when I was young and used to be like a playmate to me. He taught me a lot of board games, but the very first thing that came to my mind was the snakes and ladders board game. It made me really happy playing it, and had so much fun. As I grow older, he introduced chess and scrabble to me. I was pretty good at scrabble but sucked at chess. I know the basics, yes, but techniques used just don't come to me properly. I have never won a single chess battle with my dad, and I mean never. I guess because it's just not my thing.

I learned to play Scrabble from my aunts. They'd teach me how each letter gave points and how to calculate for each word used. It was a fun experience.

My childhood friend since elementary is the one who taught me to play chess, he's a chess player on our school and get to compete in tournaments with other schools. And of course I always lose to him although I don't mind as I see it only as past time with our other friends. He also plays with oldies in our neighborhood and most of the times he always lose to them at first, but after countless of games with them eventually he start to win again them. Some also are sore losers and can't take being lose to a younger chess player and tend to get mad some times. I remember he nearly won against this not si old guy but manage to elude us from the game for him not to be called loser.

Nobody, I'm a bad ass who gets through life by observing and reading necessary things to learn different kinds of things. *lol* Joking aside, what I remember that it was my grandfather who taught me how to play chess, he only instructed how the pieces move, the basics and that's it. All other techniques, strategies and secrets are all learned through continues playing and studying other games being played. I for sure cherish the game that was taught to me by grandfather and enjoy it even now.

"Nobody, I'm a bad ass who gets through life by observing and reading necessary things to learn different kinds of things."

HA! You got me. For a second there I thought you were totally serious, and I was going to be like "Get a load of this egomaniac."

On the topic of chess, my father is the one who taught me how to play. However, much like you said, he only ever taught me how the pieces moved. In terms of opening strategies and other important tactics, I actually didn't pick up on any techniques until I recently started learning about classical moves.

I honestly got kind of tired of getting my butt kicked any time I played chess, and decided to get better by analyzing time tested strategies. Needless to say, it certainly helps if you don't have a mind that's particularly gifted with regards to strategy.

I used to live in a close-knit neighborhood, and I would always go next door and play with the kids there because I didn't have any siblings to play with at home. That was where I learned how to play Monopoly. I was never very good at it because, at my young age, I didn't understand how to "monopolize". I vaguely remember Candyland and Snakes and Ladders too, but they weren't very interesting to me.

My father taught me how to play board games, especially chess. We always play those games, and even in the middle of the night. We love to play those games! or just stay bored the day doing nothing. It was my brother who cope the idea to play chess, and he even recommend other board games, only existed here in my country. We played games such as "DAMA", it's a popular game here in my country, and you only occupy one color of the board game. Many people enjoy playing "DAMA" game here.

I usually play chess, when I'm in home. Because, my father busy doing things in-car repairing. I even joined in different school competition of board game, and I even won of the best prizes of that time.
