Hence each year ends with a list of the most popular and the most dis-liked board games played in live sessions and also in the online world. Below is the list and explanation of the top 10 popular board games of the year 2009. Take a look!

Clue

By its original format it is known as “Cluedo”, a United Kingdom version published in 1949. This game is based on speculation, presumption and guessing techniques that the player must posses. As the game of Clue has a fun-filled format and encourages social interaction, it’s become a favourite one for adults and kids. Everyone knows the story of this game to do with the rooms and weapons. But what makes it more interesting is guessing aspect that heightens the worry and raises the stakes for players. Many variations have been introduced now, including editions for kids and in many language versions.

Monopoly

Monopoly has certainly existed and thrived as the most popular board game in the commercial industry. Almost for 100 years this game has been initiated in many forms. Though monopoly is an over-hyped game and is well-known among the modern board games, it is still given less valued. The experience gets monotonous while playing because most people are not aware of the rules and hence play on wrong terms. But there is a solid game here involving some basic economics.

Players try out the various novelty incarnations (Simpsons-opoly, University of Texas-opoly, etc). The old-school Monopoly, the basic introductory version, that you played in early times features the infamous paper money and is the version that reigns best over all other commercial games.

Life

The Game of Life was invented in 1861 and it was released by Milton Bradley that year. Players proceed in the game of life by rotating a wheel and following different tracks and taking serious decisions while they are on their way. Even this year the game has achieved enough fame as it includes fun activities. You enjoy growing up, adding kids and jobs and cash. This is indeed one of the older American board games still played. New rules and new careers to practice are included in the Updated versions. This is based loosely on the classic Parchisi game from India like a slide and pursuit game. The game also includes aspects of card games and capture games – the rules are simple to follow and players of all ages can participate.

Chess

Chess is a global happening that continues to challenge players world-wide and it stands as an all-time holder for board games. On a global scale, chess is the only well-known and most-played game of chess than any other game. It involves factors like complexity, strategy, planning, and easy to play steps. You don’t even need a board and characters, but just a pencil and paper and that keeps the game special and the most wanted one till date. The rules of Chess have always been evolving from the 7th century until today. But it’s still a wonderful game that drives players from all over the world.

Scrabble

The game can be enjoyed by two or four players who participate by forming words on a board type like crossword puzzle. The best-known and most popular word game, Scrabble has an extreme following of wordsmiths – you know those people quick to correct your usage and grammar on the bus. More vague letters and words lead to higher point score. Some players study Scrabble, the most popular word game in the world, like Garry Kasparov studies Chess. The Deluxe version has many features including a board that spins and holds letters in place.

Checkers

The board game Checkers is also known as Draughts and dates back to at least the sixteenth century. Just like chess and other accepted games, there are tournaments in checkers that’s played on national and worldwide basis, and popular culture has fully embraced this game of “capture”. Considered “the poor man’s chess”, checkers is almost as tough and famous as chess, and the variations have been listed in books and websites for years.

Stratego

Stratego makes the players to control a large number of pieces representing the soldiers and officers of rival armies. This can be defined as a classic war strategy game. Organize your troops in a way that safeguard your flag while giving you a chance to capture your opponent’s flag. This game is an adaptation of an ancient Chinese chess variant, called “Animal Chess”. The game involves steps like misleading your opponent, a good deal of tricks, and strategy learned over time in order to win.

Risk This game is based on the world during the period of Napoleon which is played by two to six players. This is a war strategy game invented by a French film director in 1957. The goal is to rule the world with your army by over taking countries through military might. Risk is another game known for eating up entire weekends and creating rivalries among friends. Many expansions exist, both official and unofficial, including a futuristic version called Risk: 2210 AD. An updated version of Risk, Risk 2210 AD improves the original by shortening the game (five turns), introducing underwater and space territories, and more. Powerful commanders and cards add new strategy.

Battleship

Battleship is a simple game that has entertained players for decades. To understand it better and in a simpler form, the game of Battleship is based on guessing techniques. Much before the board version was introduced, which featured the classic back-to-back setup “cheat proof”; players used paper and pencil to submerge each other’s battleships with. The basic theme of naval combat was first published in 1931 and hasn’t lost fame. Two players furtively deploy their armadas and then try to destroy each other.

Trivial Pursuit

The classic trivia pursuit game is still a concoction party standard. Though most players these days have deserted the boring board setup in favor of a more simple trivia session, using the cards and not the game pieces. New versions of the game appear all the time, including anniversary and topic-specific editions.

5 Family Favorite Outdoor Games

We love every chance we get to turn off the television or the video games and get outside. Kids love to play, and the backdoor is just a skip, hop, and a jump away. These five outdoor games that I played as a kid are fun and have lasted the test of time. I can remember being outside all of the time, even if it was just lying in the backyard grass looking up at the clouds, finding pictures, and dreaming. Enjoy taking a look back at our family’s five favorite games to play outside.

1. Red Light, Green Light: Pick someone to be the Red Light. She should be standing across the yard from the other kids with her back turned so that she cannot see them. The other kids stand shoulder to shoulder. Red Light closes her eyes and yells, “Green Light!” Everyone runs as fast as they can to try and get to her and tap her on the shoulder. They must be careful because at any moment, Red Light will turn around as fast as she can and yell, “Red Light!” As soon as the other players see her do this, they must freeze. If Red Light sees anyone moving when she turns around, she must send them back the starting line. The first person to reach Red Light, when her back is turned, wins!

2. Ghosts in the Graveyard: This is fun to play at night. For a recent family reunion, a friend of mine purchased little flashlights to tape to the player’s fingers. One person is chosen to be the ghost. Everyone else hides in the yard. The ghost counts one o’clock, two o’clock, and so on until he reaches “midnight!” Then, the ghost will search for the other players and tag them before they reach home base. Once a player is tagged, they become a ghost and will start looking for the others that are hiding in the yard.

3. No Bears Are Out Tonight: Pick someone to be the bear. This game was the most fun when dad was the bear. The bear hides while the other players run around singing, “No bears are out tonight, daddy killed them all last night.” When the players get close to the bear’s hiding spot, he runs out, growls, and tries to tag one of the players before they can get to home base. The last person tagged wins.

4. Annie-Annie Over: Divide up into two teams and stand in the front and the back of your house. A player calls out, “Annie-Annie Over!” and throws a ball over the house to the players on the other side. If a player catches the ball, they can quietly run around the house and throw the ball at you or catch you and tag you. If nobody catches the ball, they can wait a little bit to make you think they got it, then call out, “Annie-Annie Over!” and throw it over the house again. Your team has won when you have tagged the last player on the other side.

5. Mother, May I?: Our family loves to play this game. Whether we are 2 or 42, it is the most requested. Choose one person to be it. Everyone else will stand in a line facing her. She calls out to each player, one at a time, calling them by name and giving them a direction. For example, she might say, “Michael, take three giant steps forward.” Michael will then have to ask, “Mother, May I?” If she says yes, Michael can do what she said. If Michael forgets to ask, he has to go all the way back to the starting line. The first player to reach “it” takes her place and you start over. Other fun directions include asking players to take baby steps forward, do jigs, cartwheels, somersaults, ballerina twirls, etc.

These fun outdoor games can be played all year long. We have played in the rain, the snow, the sunshine, and in the light of the moon. Go outside and enjoy making memories that will last.

The Road To Passive Income

If you want enough passive income to get out of the rat race, you will want to read this. There is a lot of hype and nonsense out there about passive income. Let me show you how to get it right now.

Why do you want passive income? Maybe because you want more time with your family. Maybe you want more time to devote to your real passion in life. Maybe you want to build a serious business. Remember, when the going gets rough, why you want passive income to begin with.

Passive income is income from sources other than a job. Passive income can be: rental real estate, stocks, bonds, mutual funds, businesses that you own (but do not require your presence), royalties, and perhaps IOU’s.

Let’s start with rental real estate. You need capital for a solid down payment and to rehab the property. You also need decent cash flow. Look into foreclosures if you have the money and the skills necessary to rehab a property. Be honest with yourself. Getting a Realtor’s license is an excellent idea.

If you lack funds, move on to one of the next ideas. You can always return to rental properties as an investment in the future.

Now let’s look at stocks, bonds, and mutual funds. Again, these investments require money, but you can get a brokerage account for as little as $500. A 401(k), you can start with nothing. Bonds will likely pay out more than stocks. Stocks to investigate are: oil & gas companies, REIT’s (or Real Estate Investment Trusts), and common stocks with large dividends. Be careful of dividend traps. A company can only pay out so much in dividends. A stock other than a REIT will have a very hard time paying out much more than 7% in dividends. Research your stocks and look for red flags, like SEC investigations, etc. If you decide on stock or bond mutual funds (or ETFs), keep your expense ratios down. You may want to consider a balanced mutual fund. If you have no experience in investments, hire a reputable stockbroker, and have him/her pick some good stocks, bonds, and funds for you. By all means, I encourage you to take an investments class at your local college. Tax free municipal bonds might be suitable for you, too. Remember, your dividends and interest will fluctuate over time.

Ok, businesses that do not require your presence. Self storage units, coin op laundries, gas stations, etc, you can own and run without spending all your time at them. You will probably hire a few people to help. You could own other types of businesses and pay someone to run them, but you would have to make sure the manager you hire is competent. You also could be running a store if the person quit. Make sure you are ready for that event. Start looking reading and writing business plans for your proposed venture(s). Initially, it will take a lot of preparation and work to get your venture running.

Online business are still much more passive than storage and coin op laundries. Setting up a web site is very easy these days. Search engine optimization is not as easy, but doable. Set up your site, add an auto responder for your newsletter alerts, find and create compelling and valuable content, and after you get going, you should have a nice second income.

Don’t put all your eggs in one basket. If you want to stay semi retired, diversify, and stay on top of your businesses. Have a competent tax accountant, lawyer, and make sure any other pro you need is competent.

If you’re saying, “I can’t. I’m broke.”, my answer is to work your heart out at your job, maybe work two jobs, and save every last penny, and sell stuff. If you have some investments, rather than opting to take dividends, choose instead to invest aggressively for growth. When you get a little dough, go find an excellent stockbroker.

As Confucius said, “The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.” As Tony Robbins says, “Take massive and consistent action!”

What Started It All

Surprisingly, one of the most well loved sports in the world is also relatively young. Despite the game’s youth, it has gone through a wide variety of changes and evolution as a part of its rich history.

Believe it or not, but at one time there wasn’t Asics or Nike women’s volleyball shoes or even volleyball uniforms for sale anywhere, let alone online!

To fully understand and appreciate how much the game has changed and how much work was put into to make it successful, you need to search back to the very origin of Volleyball, and study when and why changes were made.

Just over 100 years ago, in 1895, William G. Morgan developed the first game of Volleyball. At the time, Morgan dubbed the game “Mintonette”. “Mintonette” was created for business men as a game that involved less physical contact at the chapter of the YMCA where he worked at in Holyoke, Massachusetts. Morgan borrowed aspects from several games to create his own game. The first aspect was from tennis, borrowing the net. Instead of the standard net, however, he raised it to be 6 foot 6 inches high, so it was just over the heads of average men. Other sports he borrowed from include basketball, baseball and handball. During one of the demonstration games of the sport, one of the spectators commented the game was more about volleying, and the games name was changed to Volleyball.

That was only the beginning.

In 1896, the first official game of Volleyball was played at Springfield College. This game signified the first real take-off of the sport, and led into further games being played at a variety of different Colleges. In the year 1900, Volleyball had taken off enough where a special ball was designed just for the game. Another feat also accomplished in 1900 was that the YMCA took the sport from America to Canada, the Orient and the southern hemisphere. Five years later, Volleyball also spread to Cuba. This spreading was what signified the start of the Volleyball era. Unlike most sports, Volleyball moved International in its early days, allowing for the game to evolve to meet the players needs world wide.

In 1907, Volleyball received its first recognition of being one of the most popular sports at the Playground of America convention. This was the first recognition the sport received, and helped to further its popularity. In the following ten years, the YMCA continued to spread the sport to Brazil, Puerto Rico and Uruguay. In 1913, the first official Volleyball competition was held in the Far Eastern Games.

1916 saw Volleyball have its first true evolution. In the Philippines, the set and spike offensive pass was introduced, and game play was altered to involve this new form. The Filipinos developed the “bomba”, which is the kill, and the named the hitter the “bomberino”. In this same year, the NCAA was invited by the YMCA to alter the rules of the game, and it was initiated into Colleges and other schools as a part of the standard physical education courses and intramural programs. A year later, the scoring system was also adjusted so that a game ended after 15 points instead of 21. This allowed more games to be played within the same span of time, in an attempt to make the sessions a little shorter for the players.

Three short years later, in 1919, the American Expeditionary Forces donated 16,000 Volleyballs to the troops, which provided a stimulus for growth in foreign countries. With this rise in growth of the sport, new rules began being developed. A year later, the three hits per side rule and the back row attack rules were put into place.

By 1928, players and fans of the sport realized that “official” tournament rules and regulations were required. The United States Volleyball Association was formed, and the first U.S. Open Volleyball tournament was held. The U.S. Open allowed for squads that were not YMCA sanctioned to participate, which was a breakthrough at the time. This evolution permitted lovers of the sport to fully enjoy the game without having to be tied to the organization that created it.

After 1928, the game of Volleyball was forever changed. With the “official” rules set down, and a tournament that wasn’t private to the YMCA, the popularity of the sport was allowed to sky rocket. The Men’s U.S. Open was held every year thereafter, with the exception of three years. 1943, 1944 and 1989 did not have the yearly tournaments, due to wars and other obstacles.

In 1934, Volleyball saw another extensive change through the recognition of official referees to oversee the games. This change in particular drastically altered the calls and the fairness of the game.

The 1940’s held several special events for Volleyball. Not only was the forearm pass introduced into the game, the first world championship Volleyball game was held. It was during this time that the volleyball movement saw fruition, and squads from all over the world could find out who was the best. This became a yearly event, allowing for more publicity of the sport, which aided in its growth. Around this time, over 50 million people were playing world wide, in over 60 different countries.

By 1964, Volleyball had spread enough to warrant introduction into the Olympic games. The first games took place in Tokyo, where a rubber carcass with leather panels was used for the ball. This ball became the one that would be used in most modern competitions. As a part of the Olympic games, Volleyball was allowed to grow even further, until it secured a place for itself as the second most played game in the world.

Despite this high level of popularity, it wasn’t until 1986 that the Women’s Professional Volleyball Association, or the WPVA, was formed. With the growing rate of professional interest by both sexes, Volleyball was finally allowed to reach its full potential for popularity. Elementary, middle and high schools, as well as colleges all invested into the game by providing courses in Volleyball in their physical education, so that the sport was known in most households around the world.

While still trailing behind Soccer for popularity, Volleyball has done extremely well for a game with roots so young.

Handwriting Without Tears

In the last few years the number of left handed persons has increased dramatically. This is partly because left handed children are not forced to use the right hand for writing any more but are rather encouraged to use whichever hand the child shows a preference to. Previously a left handed child was always corrected and encouraged to use the right hand. A left handed child cannot be taught to write using the same principles that are used to teach a right handed child. The normal and the more regular methods of teaching are more suited for a right handed child. Often a right handed person is not even aware of the problems a left handed person has to face.

Here are some of the common problems faced by a left handed child:

Push Vs Pull: When a right handed child is writing he or she is pulling the pen/ pencil across the paper. This works well because we write left to right. Left handed children have to push their pen/ pencil across the page. This is quite hard. This also makes the nib of the pen/ pencil go deeper into the paper rather than flow smoothly.

Smudging: When a left handed child is writing on the paper his or her hand is following the pen/ pencil. And this way it is easy to smudge the letters they just wrote. This can cause a real mess. The mess can be even more when a left handed person uses a proper nib in cartridge or a fountain pen.

Watch What You Write: Since we write from left to right (in majority of the languages), a right handed person can watch what they are writing as they are writing. This is often difficult for a left handed person and hence they can develop bad handwriting if not taught using the correct method and approach.

Here are some of the ways in which you can help a left handed approach:

Mindset: First and foremost never ever discourage a left handed child from using the left hand for writing.

Paper Position: Rotate the paper 45 degrees clockwise (top to the right). This way by moving the paper to the right (rather than the traditional approach of keeping it to the left) you are allowing the left handed child to view their writing as they write. This gives them confidence, makes them right faster and teaches them handwriting skills.

Pencil Position: Left handed children should hold their pencils an inch and half higher than right handed children. Encourage them to keep their wrist and hand below the writing line. If you find there is a lot of smudging then may be use a harder lead pencil like number 3 instead of a number 2 lead pencil.

Avoid Hooking: One of the main problems faced by left handed children is that they cannot see what they are writing. In order to be able to see what they are writing they tend to hook their hands above the writing line and write. This is a very difficult posture and cumbersome. Discourage them from hooking. A proper paper position and pencil position will enable them to see what they are writing. So encourage proper paper position and good pencil position and discourage hooking.

Special Products: There are special pens and pencils specifically designed for left handed persons. Make use of them and teach your children handwriting skills the correct way. And finally Happy Handwriting to one and all…Teach kids handwriting without tears.


Think The Casino Dealer Has A Weak Hand? Double Your Bet To Attack

Double Attack Blackjack is another variant of this popular table game. During recent years alternates have been appearing (and disappearing) from the casino pits. The most active variants today are Blackjack Switch, Spanish 21, Free Bet Blackjack, and Three Card Blackjack.

Blackjack rules for Double Attack Blackjack gives the player the opportunity to double the play bet if he or she thinks the casino dealer has a weak up card.

How the Game is Played

A Spanish Deck s used which has 48 cards instead of the usual 52. The four 10’s are removed. Ace through 9, and J, Q, K, are all in play. Eight 48 card decks are used. Insurance pays 5/2 but a player blackjack pays even money instead of the usual 3/2 or 6/5 in some jurisdictions.

After all players place their initial wager the dealer will reveal his or her up-card. It’s important to note that this is done before any cards are dealt to the players.

Based on the value of the dealer up-card, players then have the option to Double Attack the dealer’s hand by placing an additional bet in the appropriate position. The amount must be equal to or less than the initial wager. After two cards are dealt to each player the following options are playable:

  • Double Down – on any two cards on the initial and double attack wagers up to the original bet.
  • Split – any pair. Players must place an equal amount for both the initial and double attack bets.
  • Surrender – When the dealer does not have a blackjack players can surrender one half of their wager(s) including after hitting, splitting, or doubling down.

Optional Bust It! Side Bet

This optional side bet pays if the dealer busts with exactly three cards. Otherwise the bet loses.Players can wager as little as one dollar up to their initial bet but not mor than $50. Here is the winning pay table:

Third Card Bust

  • J, Q, K – Pays 3/1
  • Nine – Pays 6/1
  • Eight – Pays 8/1
  • Seven – Pays 10/1
  • Six – Pays 15/1
  • Bonus 8-8-8 Same color – Pays 50/1
  • Bonus 8-8-8 suited – Pays 200/1

Things to Consider When Playing

According to simple blackjack basic strategy:

  • If a dealer’s up-card is a 2 or 3, he or she is considered neutral
  • If the dealer has a 4,5, or 6, the dealer is considered weak
  • If the dealer has a 7 through ace, he or she is strong

Remember that players do not have any cards when choosing to attack or not.

The insurance payout of 5/2 (for the few players that take this option) is more than double the standard 2/1 however when taking insurance players are betting that the dealer has a blackjack. With 32 10’s removed from an eight deck game, there are fewer blackjack possibilities for the dealer and player. Doubling down is also less effective in that there are fewer 10’s.

Here’s a recommended strategy when deciding to double attack or not:

  • If a dealer’s up-card is 2 or 3, make your minimum attack bet
  • If the up-card is a 4,5, or 6 make your maximum attack bet
  • If the up-card is 7 through Ace, do not make an attack bet

The game is not as prevalent in brick and mortar casinos as the aforementioned blackjack variants. For you readers in or near Niagara Falls, Canada, the game is at the Fallsview Casino. It is also available online for free and real play.

Good Luck!

The Top 5 Pieces Of Sexy Lingerie That Drive Men Crazy

The upside is that men absolutely love this look and you are at once both covered and showing lots of skin which will excite him no end!

Classic colors are black, red and white, but you can also choose softer, more feminine colors like light-blue, pink and nude which aren’t so hardcore.

If your guy comes home to see you wearing nothing but this and some heels we’re talking serious fireworks!

3. Negligee

Teasing is the name of the game here. A negligee is one of the best items of sexy lingerie as it offers a lot of coverage and is very forgiving, so if there are some areas of your body that you’re not so happy with then it’s perfect.

This short gown can be rather sheer, but hides just enough to excite your guy with the anticipation of what’s underneath!

They’re quite pleasantly tactile as well, as negligees often come in silk which he will not only enjoy the feel of, but also feels great against your skin.

Sometimes it’s what you DON’T show off that’s the sexiest and in this case a negligee is a winner.

4. Corset or Bustier

Corsets and bustiers are great for everyone concerned as men think they’re a really hot item of sexy lingerie and they give you a really good shape. Corsets were invented hundreds of years ago to shape women’s bodies into a more desirable hourglass shape and the good news is that that hasn’t changed!

Naturally, a by-product of this is that your bust gets a natural boost, so prepare for epic cleavage!

Bustiers are similar, but actually have integrated cups, giving more support and a further boost, especially to girls with bigger busts.

They’re available in many different designs and colors, so if red satin is your thing for instance, then you can pick one up!

They’re also so versatile that you don’t only need to wear them in the bedroom, as they work well with jeans too if you’re daring enough to wear one on a night out!

5. Teddy

This sexy lingerie isn’t your favorite stuffed toy! It’s a slinky body-suit with spaghetti straps that is often made of very sheer lace or mesh material.

Again, teddies often aren’t super revealing, so are great for the more bashful amongst us, but where the front is fairly covered, they are often backless, so there’s plenty for men to appreciate. As ever, men love black, red and white. But for some extra fun you could get one in leopard or zebra print!


How To Download Wii Games Online

By now, few gaming fanatics wound argue that the Wii is not the game console of choice. Wii parties and get-togethers are commonplace these days as Wii communities proliferate. That’s not surprising, given that the Wii is really home entertainment, relaxation and exercise rolled into one. In fact, if there was to be anything at all that’s thorny about Wii, it would have to be the cost of its game discs.

New games keep getting better but they are not getting cheaper unless of course, there is an alternative source to turn to. As a matter of fact, there is. Being a digital product, it comes as no surprise that it would have a surrounding commercial presence on the net. People are quick to jump on the business opportunity and it did not take long for Wii Games Download service providers to sprout up all over the web. How to Download Wii Games then?

How to Download Wii Games can be done for nothing (FOC) through peer-to-peer (P2P) or torrent sites. This, however, is a no-no with serious Wii fanciers in view of viruses and malware. The process and quality often leaves a lot to be desired too. Paid membership download service is a much better proposition. For a nominal outlay, you get complete peace of mind.

There are different packages of paid membership to suit individual needs and preference. Per- download or limited-time options make more economic sense for the occasional gamers but they are few and far between. Wii-rockers are predominantly fanatical about their favorite gizmo and can’t have enough of it. Lifetime unlimited membership is hence the no-brainer choice and is by far the most popular option.

Unlike the per- download scheme, unlimited downloads are virtually free-of-charge. The one-time fee goes more towards the sign-up and purchase of the software and tools. Along with the games download, unlimited TV shows, movies and music are accessible. The market rate of the one-time fee charged by the top-tier providers is not much more than what you would pay for a single disc from the store.

Actually, How to Download Wii Games is the easy part. The trick is in picking out the right provider. The Wii market is hot so scams and fly-by-nights’ are lurking everywhere. Don’t settle for anything without full money-back guarantee and 24/7 support and one way to be insulated from identity theft is to shop only in secure e-commerce marketplaces like Clickbank.
