3 Old Board Games to Revisit

3 Old Board Games to Revisit Cornerstone Wealth Management

In a time when computers and online platforms dominate our leisure time, revisiting classic board games like Scrabble, Rummikub, and Clue can offer a refreshing change of pace and a great way to unplug for the night. These games, timeless in their appeal, provide not just entertainment but also a way to stimulate the mind and foster social connections.

Scrabble: A Word Lover’s Paradise

Scrabble, first introduced in 1938, is a game that appeals to the vocabulary enthusiast in us. This word game, where players earn points by constructing words on a board using individual letter tiles, is as much about strategy as it is about having a robust lexicon. The thrill of creating high-scoring words from a limited set of letters never gets old and provides a satisfying challenge to our linguistic abilities.[1]

Rummikub: A Test of Strategy and Luck

Rummikub, a tile-based game that combines elements of rummy and mahjong, is another classic that deserves revisiting. The game, requiring players to create sets or runs of numbers, requires a blend of strategy and luck. The excitement of drawing the perfect tile to complete a run or the tension when you’re left with high-value tiles brings a unique level of engagement. Rummikub also enhances cognitive skills, as players must constantly adapt their strategies based on the ever-changing game board.[1]

Clue: The Quintessential Mystery Game

Clue, a murder mystery board game, is a classic that takes players on a thrilling detective journey. The objective is to deduce the details of a murder — the who, the where, and the weapon. The game fosters deductive reasoning and strategic thinking as players collect clues and make educated guesses to solve the crime. The suspense of the game, combined with its interactive gameplay, makes Clue an enduring favorite.[1]

In a world dominated by screens, these games remind us of the joy of gathering with loved ones around a table, indulging in friendly competition, and creating lasting memories. So, dust off those old game boxes and rediscover the charm of these time-honored classics.

Everyone’s retirement plan is different. If you’re the kind of person who is looking to design a retirement where you spend more time away from screens, our advisors can help you build a plan that takes that into account.
