Sepia Saturday

Playing board games has always been a favorite pastime of mine. I especially like backgammon, checkers, and Risk. My family often played Monopoly, but we never finished a game. Fun though they were, the games went on and on.

Here are some nostalgic photos of board games.

In Japan, the game go is very big. There are movies like March Comes in Like a Lion and television broadcasts of tournaments.
