What's your gaming routine?

Enjoy playing a game with your morning cup of coffee or in the evening to wind down? What's your gaming routine?

I have been playing games  since Pong. My late  wife  liked to play some  games, all my kids are gamers of various degrees... I'll play in the after noon when the  grankids go to school, but mostly at night before i sleep.. RPGs and such are my games of choice

I also play literary RPG's where we write out our characters and interactions in a sort of collaborative story.

I play a game on my phone for about an hour every morning because I am a very early riser.  It keeps the house quiet since my hubs sleeps in later than I. I never pay to play, it's just a wake up routine. Sometimes I may go back to game in the evening while watching news.

I usually have a nightly game or two of checkers, darts, and/or pool with the boys down at the local pub.

Before Covid, I was playing games in person every Sunday afternoon. All sorts of games from euro-strategy games to card games. During lockdown we were playing online, generally using boardgamearena.com and chatting on zoom. I also play a weekly Dungeons & Dragons game.

On my own, I have a few games that I play on my phone to unwind.

I record "Jeopardy!" and "Wheel of Fortune" and watch them both the next morning while having breakfast. That way I can fast-forward through the commercials and the contestant introductions when they start getting awkward and embarrassing.

 

Really? You're telling America you're a "pug mom"?  No.

 

I consider it gaming because I play the game — I call out the answers, and at least, oh, 7% of the time — before the contestants do. Of those, at least 4% of my responses are correct.

 

But more seriously, I enjoy both the shows. "Jeopardy!" is more cerebral. "Wheel of Fortune" seems to have been unfairly lambasted as being silly and inconsequential. I think it's fun to play along. "Jeopardy!" has you calling up data you know; "Wheel" has you actively solving word puzzles.  Both keep that gray matter busy.

My games usually consist of the three crossword puzzles in the morning, either during or after breakfast. After those, I sometimes do a few quizzes and then I go to Redeem some of my points for anything of interest, usually one or more sweepstakes and chances at the Instant Win items.

I seldom go play any of the games in the AARP Games area just to be playing them. By the time I finish the crosswords and redeeming, it's usually time to go take care of the yard, do other errands, or get some exercise.

Stay well.
