In general, games played at home provide a wholesome activity for the entire family.
Many people find that the time spent playing games at home contributes to feelings of closeness
among family members, thus giving them time to relax together and promote familial ties. Three
types of games played at home that have remained popular over the years are card games, board
games, and outdoor or backyard games.
Card games have remained popular in many homes. Bridge, canasta, rummy and whist
are only a few of the hundreds of games that can be played with an ordinary deck of cards. The
popular movie star Omar Sharif has given bridge popular advertisement in his latest book and on
nationally syndicated talk shows. This positive endorsement of the game has brought attention to
the fever pitch. Canasta and rummy have always been considered staples of the card-playing
crowd, particularly in the northern climates where people are indoors during the winter months.
These card games provide a healthy way to spend leisure time together, and the popularity of
these games has not diminished over the years.
Board games have also been very popular with the typical Canadian family. Monopoly,
Clue, Chinese checkers, checkers, chess, and newer games like Trivial Pursuit are but a few of
the board games currently on the market. Clue has been so successful as a board game that it has
been made into a video game. Monopoly is the true Canadian standard board game. What
family does not have one somewhere in a drawer or closet? Its premise lies at the heart of every
Canadian — to become successful and earn enough money to be happy. It is the ultimate success
game. Trivial Pursuit, a newcomer to the board game market, has become very popular with the
young urban professionals who play it at parties and weekend get-togethers. There have even
been spin-offs of the trivia game like Bible Trivia, Movie Trivia, and the like. Yes, board games
certainly have always been popular in Canada, and it appears that this style of home
entertainment is still a family favorite.
Outdoor or backyard games round out the list of home games that have remained popular
over the years. Touch football and baseball or softball are played in almost every vacant lot or
large backyard in the country. Most homes inhabited by children have a basketball hoop
somewhere on the premise...

large backyard in the country. Most homes inhabited by children have a basketball hoop
somewhere on the premises. These games not only appeal to family togetherness, but also appeal
to those who are concerned about physical well-being since these physical activities promote the
concept of fitness.
These games promote healthy competition among friends and family members, provide a
healthy release of frustrations, and aid in understanding sportsmanship. Many younger players
learn to win--and lose--graciously while older players are reminded that how the game is played
is the most important thing to consider. Home entertainment has remained popular for many
years, and it appears that games that can be played at home will continue to remain popular for a
long time to come.
