    This disappearing experience seems to correlate with a diminution of reasoning ability among the general population, whether it be an "everybody wins" mentality or a lack of negotiating skills. Instead of dealing with the uncertainties of life through probability and experience, many of us prefer to live in a fantasy world of "reality" shows and empty slogans. Why is this?

    How about you share why you do first?

    I grew up with board and card games- and so did my kid. We both enjoy 'fantasy' but not 'empty slogans'.

    Why do you prefer reality shows and empty slogans?

    I am a major play of board/card games. Very few weekends pass without us playing some sort of game. I loving nothing more then sitting around the table with my best friends, some bourbon, and, board games.

    I can play Poker and Strip Poker, the latter I'm excellent at, I am always the only person sitting in my underwear when everyone else is....um....okay perhaps this is the wrong section of the forum to elaborate :smoke:

    What was the question again? :eusa_doh:

    Oh yes, that's right, I can also play Backgammon and Baccarat, I play most things that involve the Casino, I'm very good at Roulette....I also have a table and a Casino Roulette wheel in the house and I'm teaching my 4 year-old son how to play Roulette.

    They're playing video games. Those probably teach probability and how to deal with losing, too.

    Not any that I have seen. Even "death" is temporary in these games.

    What makes you think it's "disappearing"?

    Do board games have a lot of permanent death in them? Just asking.

    I can't think of any board or card games that involve death. Can you?
