Senior Citizens, what is the lomgest time you played at a game?

Any game is OK.

BQ: What was it?

I remember some long Monopley games. The longest was 3 weeks one summer playing with neighbors. We would play about 2 hours at a time.

    I'm ashamed to admit that when I first discovered Tetris, I played it for days at a time, only stopping to go to work and to sleep. I was absolutely hooked on it. Luckily, though, that only lasted for a month or so. I started having hallucinations and seeing the blocks falling everywhere I looked. Seeing a tile floor, especially a checkered one, would drive me crazy because I'd see the Tetris shapes. Trying to sleep was an utter nightmare, watching the shapes falling from the ceiling. I remember we were listening to NPR one afternoon at the office and someone was reading an essay about playing Tetris - "and the pieces fall faster and faster and the music gets louder and louder and faster and faster...." and my boss asked me "Is that the game you're talking about?" and started laughing at me.

    There was a game my sister-in-law and I played with the kids when they were little. I think it was called Bonkers - as in "this game will drive you bonkers!". Those games, because of the way the board was set up, could literally take hours to play, because you'd get to the point where you knew you were going to win and back you'd go to the start of the board. I don't remember that much about it, but the games were really long and a lot of fun.

    During the winter we kids always had a running game of Monopoly going. This was at our one room country school, so I don't know if it really counts since we only played about an half hour a day.

    Glad to know I was not alone in my Tetris addiction. I'm in recovery.

    Remember when Freecell was first installed on the computer? One Saturday morning I took a break from housework to have a cup of coffee and play a little FreeCell.....5 hours kids have never let me forget.

  • I have to say playing UNO and Yahtzee were the longest with me

    Could play for hours sometimes all day and night.
