Win! That child-like 'want' to win fades away with growing age. The happiness in winning remains the same but the excitement in journeying towards victory diminishes. We become less competitive and more comparative. It's not that we don't want to win. But, we don't want to play. Or, we don't want to lose maybe.
However, we can disprove this by participating generously in all the sports activities. Here are some fun games that never fail to excite us and keep the spirit of winning always alive.
You should know when to encash on the plural forms of words; you should know when to use inflected forms of a word and you should know how to not play an open-ended game. And that's not all. Scrabble is much more than this; it's a wonderful game. You need to play it to really know it!
You plan all your moves, you miss to recognize your opponent's strategy, he continues building up his army to attack your king and if you miss to realize that, you are gone!
You work on giving a check to his king, you plan your moves accordingly, but you forget to keep your king safeguarded, your opponent is sure to say "check and mate". And remember, you can turn the table over any time; you just need to be watchful about what your opponent is doing, rather not doing. And you can emerge winner.
Obviously it's not as easy as 'filling grids with numbers'. It requires quick thinking and speedy permuting skills. You need to zero in at 'the only position' for every numeral. Sudoku indeed is very interesting. If you are one of those Sudoku freaks, know how to solve Sudoku fast.
The fingers of carrom players crawl all over the board; at times to smoothen the 'playground', and at times to grab the striker to pocket the little pawns. Well these pawns, or coins are actually called carom-men. And the ruling lady in the scene is but of course, the pretty queen!
These were some games to up the fun quotient of the sports event in workplace. There are many more games that brings back the child in us, but the ultimate motive of such games is enjoyment.
