Friend Makin’ Mondays: Hobbies and Games

I meant to do this much earlier in the day, but I had to go the doctor — well, the eye doctor — well, the iPhone doctor to be honest.  That is, I cracked my iPhone 5s screen and had to take it to the Apple store and they replaced it. And I walked out $269 + tax poorer, so less money for hobbies and games in April for sure!

Hobbies and Games

1. Do you have a favorite board game?  Probably Monopoly, although I also used to love various versions of Trivial Pursuit.

2. Do you have a favorite card game?

For card game using traditional card deck, I would say duplicate bridge.  I used to play that a lot, but when I had kids that went by the wayside.

Currently, my favorite card game is Hearthstone, which is played online.  I’ve also enjoyed playing Pokemon, Yugioh, and Magic The Gathering.

3. Do you play games on your phone?

Occasionally.  Mostly Bejeweled or Candy Crush but I mostly play games on computer.

4. Do you prefer the x-box, playstation or wii?

None of the above?  I love games, but prefer computer based games.  Right now I’m mostly playing Hearthstone, Diablo III (new expansion is out) and World of Warcraft.  We have a Wii (first generation) but I haven’t played it in awhile.  We also have a Playstation 3 but my son appropriated that years ago.

5. Do you have a favorite outdoor hobby?

I like walking in our neighborhood which is kind of hilly so fun to walk in.

6. Have you ever been geocaching?

I have not but it sounds interesting.

7. What’s your favorite hobby?

Reading is probably my most favorite forever.  After that, I would have said World of Warcraft until about 3 or 4 months ago when I kind of got tired of it.  I guess video games of some sort (played on computer not console) would be second to reading.

8. Is there a hobby you would love to try but are too scared too?

No.  If I’m too scared to try, then I wouldn’t love to try it.  Years ago, I went skiing with some friends and that cured me of the desire to try that or to try anything else where they have ambulances at the bottom of the hill.

9. Do you enjoy doing puzzles?

Occasionally.  I get bored with it pretty quickly.
