    So, this one is all about the games you play with your friends and family. Excluding video grames, PC games, basically anything with a screen. I'm talking board games, card games, leisure sports like Darts or Pool, stuff like that. Maybe write a few words on how and/or why you play it, though that's optional. Also, no naughty games, we wouldn't want to anger Google.

    No media, though I'll allow ads for specific games, as well as TV footage that's non-fictional (as they do have championships for all sorts of things). And as usual, max. size is 200x200 pixels and/or 1 Mb data.

    And so, let the Games begin.

    Here's my entry:

    I was infected with the Texas Hold'em virus back in 2005, when it became all the rage (and caused James Bond to switch from Chemin de fer). I play occasionally with friends and/or my brothers. Not for money though. We just use the chips.

    I'll try to enter something on the weekend. This week has been crazy busy. And I'm too tired to make one right now. ;)

    Nice to see some entries. @auntiehill , what game is that? Whatever it is, it's visually interesting.

    Oh, right. One of my brothers was in love with that game and got the family to play once or twice. It was fun, but hard to follow all the rules, so I didn't play a lot myself. Heard there was a Star Trek Edition, though, maybe I should try that.

    Glad that we've gotten some great entries, even if it took a while to get going. But it's time to do a Last Call! Poll goes up in two days.
