Cool What is your favorite indoor game?

What is your favorite indoor game?

I like table tennis most. I used to like ludu a lot when I was a child. I also like Carom, but do play much because I am not very good in it.

then i'd say it's a tie between table tennis, snooker or pool. when you say bowling do you mean ten pin bowling? that's definately fun. though still not sure what you mean by game because table tennis, snooker and bowling are sports like the games i mentioned in my earlier post...

well in those definitions they say a sport can be a game, in any event by those definitions table tennis would be considered a sport, if you play competitively you have to be pretty athletic and pretty quick, it's still quite a physical game. snooker, billard and bowling could be considered sports as well (though the skill takes over much more than the physical so like golf it's debatable as to whether it's a sport or a game).

these are the top 2 definitions of each on answers.com

sport:
"1) a. Physical activity that is governed by a set of rules or customs and often engaged in competitively.
b. A particular form of this activity.

2) An activity involving physical exertion and skill that is governed by a set of rules or customs and often undertaken competitively."

game:
"1) An activity providing entertainment or amusement; a pastime: party games; word games.

2) a. A competitive activity or sport in which players contend with each other according to a set of rules: the game of basketball; the game of gin rummy."

and this is why i find the poll confusing because it includes some sports but when i asked if sports are included you said no.

Quote:
Ludo (from Latin ludus, "game") is a simple children's board game for two to four players, in which the players race their four tokens from start to finish according to die rolls. The game is a simplification of the traditional Indian Cross and Circle game Pachisi. It originally appeared in 1896. The game was patented in England. In the Caribbean, the game is usually called Ludi. In Sweden, the game is called "Fia", with the loser of the game (last one to have all four tokens to the finish line) called Fia.

Board

A ludo board is normally a square marked with a cross. Each arm of the cross is divided into three columns, with the columns divided into usually six squares. The centre of the cross is the finishing square which is often divided into four coloured triangles. Each coloured triangle combined with a coloured middle column appears as an arrow pointing to the finish. The shaft of each arrow is a player's "home column" and is five squares long.

To the left of each home column, one square from the edge of the board, is a starting square, also coloured. During game play a piece moves from its starting square, clockwise around the perimeter of the board, and up the player's home column to the finishing square. In the space to the left of each arm is a circle or square to hold a player's pieces before they are allowed into play. Unlike Pachisi, there are no resting squares, but the coloured home column may only be entered by its own player's tokens.

The special areas on the board are typically brightly coloured with yellow, green, red, and blue. Each player uses cardboard or plastic tokens of matching colour.

Rules

At the start of the game, the player's pieces are placed in the areas to the next to the arms.

Players take it in turn to throw a single die. A player moves one of their pieces forward the number of squares indicated by the die. When a player throws a 6 the player may bring a new piece onto the starting square, or may choose to move a piece already in play like any other throw. In either case, every throw of a 6 is rewarded with an additional turn. If a player cannot make a valid move, such as when they have no pieces in play and they do not throw a 6, they must pass the die to the next player.

A piece may not be moved onto a square occupied by another piece of the same player. If a piece lands on a piece owned by another player, the other player's piece is said to be captured. It is removed from play and must re-enter via its starting square when a 6 is thrown.

Once a piece has moved around the board completely, it passes along the "home column" of its colour. A piece can only complete the journey by throwing the exact number required: if the number thrown is too large, another piece must be moved or the player must skip their turn. The winner is the player whose four pieces finish the journey first.

If playing the block rule (See below), where a piece is doubled if a player lands on a space he already occupies, then an opponent's piece is blocked at this point and cannot move onto or past the space unless a six is thrown.

Texas Hold 'em - sitting down
Pool - Standing (but not too active)
Ping Pong/Table Tennis - Actively on my feet
Monopoly - 10 years ago (with the neighbors two hot daughters)
Carom Board - 15 years ago in BD

But if i had to pick one of all - Texas Hold 'em!!! Nothing better than digging in your friends pockets.
