A - Z Challenge: G is for . . .

For this posting I have decided to write about gaming. I love gaming, and have so for as long as I can remember. There are many types of games to play, card games, board games, console games, computer games and online games to name just name a few.

As a young girl I use to look forward to rainy days at the trailer with my nanny. We wouldn't let the rainy weather outside put a damper on our day. We would craft and play games. We would play tic-tac-toe, hangman, connect 5, mazes, word searches, puzzles. We would play card and dice games too. We also had an original Nintendo. It was fun to relax and play games.

As we got older we had more board games and a few different console games. You never forget the fun that you had playing all the different games. So many memories have stayed with me over the years. One of my favorite memories is of Nanny playing Mario on the Nintendo, she was more fun to watch then actually playing the game. She would work her way to the edge of the sofa over time. When she wanted Mario to jump, she would jump, when she wanted Mario to run, she'd lean in that direction. She always had so much fun, and so did I watching her.

Now that I'm older I play more computer games, online games and console games. I have countless games I play on Facebook. I enjoy the Facebook games because the are free and there is no limit to the ones you can play. I also play World of Warcraft and Star Wars Galaxies online. These two games are computer games that you have to buy and pay to play online. I still play Spider Solitaire. I have a Nintendo DS and a Nintendo Wii also that I waste countless hours playing.
