Here are two types of games all geeks will be sure to love:
Horse racing might not necessarily stand out as being a game that geeks will love, but you will be surprised at just how engaging and strategic this type of online game can be. There’s way more to this form of entertainment than just picking a horse and hoping that it wins, that’s for sure. To truly have a fun, entertaining, and potentially lucrative time when you engage with this type of online game, you have to study a whole host of factors. Some of these factors include:
- Horse ability
- Jockey history
- Trainer track record
- Weather conditions on race day
- Horse racing fixed odds
- Track surface
- Assigned weight
The need to consider these all-important factors makes horse race betting a worthwhile experience for anybody that is into strategic games.
Not everything has to be about the internet, you know. Board games are still incredibly fun to play, especially when they are played by a group of people at one time.
Here are just a few of the tabletop board games that you and your loved ones should seek to play together over the holiday season:
A Game of Thrones
Lovers of the hit HBO series Game of Thrones will be all over this one. King Robert Baratheon has been killed by a boar, and now the realm of Westeros is engulfed in war. As a player of this game, it will be your job to lead your house of choice to the Iron Throne. To succeed at this challenge you’re going to need to be diplomatic, you’re going to have to engage in warfare, and you’re definitely going to have to do a bit of coercing!
Harry Potter Scrabble
You didn’t spend all those years memorizing Harry Potter movies word-for-word for nothing — you did it because you knew, one day, you would be involved in a high-stakes game of Harry Potter Scrabble! This edition of Scrabble is basically the same as the original version, the only difference being that you can only use Potter-related jargon. If any of your friends aren’t avid Potterheads, fear not as this board game comes with a Wizarding World glossary.
This deck-building game is perfect for fans of the Marvel universe (both comic books and cinematic). When you and your friends decide to give this one a go, you will each be assigned a different Marvel character (Spiderman, Hulk, Iron Man, Captain America, Magneto, Wolverine, etc.) with your task being to construct as many decks as you possibly can.
If you’re looking for a new game to sink your teeth into, be sure to consider horse racing and board games. Should you decide to give either of these forms of entertainment a go, you’ll be sure to have fun for hours on end.
