Yahoo! Games

Yahoo! GamesOn Monday I spent my evening playing board games at Yahoo! If you are thinking I spent my time staring at a computer screen, then you are wrong. I drove to Yahoo's campus in Sunnyvale (about 16 minutes from my house) and joined a meeting of South Bay Boardgamers, a group that meets every Monday on Yahoo!'s campus to play board games.

Today I played Vegas Showdown and Clippers. The former has (surprisingly enough) nothing to do with gambling (but a lot to do with bidding), and the latter features ships of different colors that do not belong to any of the players. Both games were interesting and full of strategy (Clippers more so).

This is the second time I attend such a meeting (last time it was Silicon Valley Boardgamers). In both times I've learned new games I've never seen before. I'm enjoying myself very much here.

  2. These games sound fun! I guess I should give them a try and see if I like them. I have a lot of free time as I am freelancing - providing content writing service (working from home). Books and Netflix are my go-to activities, but I even get bored with those. I think these games will make my free time more fun.

  3. There are many writing services boasting their academic writers to serve you with the research papers you need. Some offer you quality but they do not guarantee your work to be submitted before deadlines. Others offer you promises to have your work delivered on time but they do compromise on the quality of writings. Similarly some writing services charge students enormously. Each organization boasts its services and achievements on various platforms in particular on their websites. This makes students ponder that “What is the best website to buy research papers online?”

  4. That’s nostalgic! It has been days since I have opened my yahoo mail. Ever since I joined this group of professional essay writers, my work has shifted to Gmail. That is why I am unable to open my yahoo mail. However, you just gave me to open it. I would also tell my colleagues about it. So we can play some games in order to take a breather.
