    I doubt you played these games as a child, and I hope you would not play them with your children.

    Well no, these are mostly new board games. Some of the aforementioned I wouldn't play with young kids, but there are a few that would be fine.

    I don't see how it would add to it, unless it was computer chess or something similar, like the 'brain teaser' and logic puzzle type things you used to have gt books for. Most of the popular ones tend to give its players an imaginary sense of achievement, for one, and can be highly addictive and harmful.

    In the military, card games were a way of socializing. Hours of off time playing pinochle. Even got to the point where two decks weren't enough and we went to four. An afternoon sitting on the veranda of a Gasthaus on the bank of the Rhine. Drinking amazing beer.

    Good example, although the players are not involved in the killing. In many video games, it is very personal and graphic.
