Sad barometer of decreasing free time – 'express' board games
Posted On November 12, 2007
This is one of the saddest statements on our culture that I have seen recently. People have so little free time that they need “express” versions of classic board games like Monopoly, Sorry or Scrabble that can be played in 20 minutes. If you don’t have more than 20 minutes to sit down and play with your children or your family or your friends, maybe you need to change your life, not buy an “express” version of leisure. Board games are MEANT to drag on, to be lingered over, to pass time… We could probably all benefit from making the time to sit down and play a good old non-electronic board game with other people – for more than 20 minutes!
