NonElectronic form of Entertainment (TimePass mostly), 152°

Greetings dear clan members... How are you'll doing??

I had this idea a couple of days back in my dream... Which i thought should have been placed here already. But, today, when i searched "non electronic form of entertainment", i could not find any action! So... Here it goes....

Use of Non Electronic form of Entertainment - Mostly Time Pass related stuff which we can practice consciously should help in saving a great deal of energy - at the same time, it will definitely help in socializing at a personal level (i mean, in real world - not virtual world)

Thus, using Games like: Chess, Scrabble, Playing-cards, and many many more can definitely be energy saving fun :)

Last weekend we brought Chess & Scrabble. Next weekend, we have UNO + Playing Cards on our agenda....

So... Have you got your board already??

Or a Kilt.
My wife's family has a history with Scrabble. Her father competed here in Britain on a national level. I soon realized when I met her that learning the game was going to be essential to our relationship. Not since childhood had I been into any type lof board games, I'm rather uncooperative by nature. It's a good thing too as I started with words like "cat, it, the" which quickly led to resounding defeats. I think I didn't win a game, aside from the ones she let me win early on, for 2 years! But I persevered and gradually became quite enamored of the game.

When we moved on board our boat to live off grid we didn't have any form of electronic entertainment for the first year or so and even when we did, a laptop to watch DVD's on, we were limited by it's energy use which we had to carefully monitor. So we played a game of scrabble almost every night. We usually played in the cockpit while also cooking, watching the glorious mid atlantic sunset, tracking the local kingfisher as he worked the shore and defended his territory, talking to neighboring boaters, even swimming midgame. Sometimes our game would last for hours. It was absolutely wonderful and is an enduring memory of that time. As part of our past off grid lifestyle scrabble earned a special place in my heart, not to mention because it is was such a part of our relationship as well, and will most assuredly be a part of lives in whatever lifestyle we lead. We still play though not as much. No matter where we live we always have a board with us, even in a tent when backpacking.

Isn't there strong mitochondrial genetic evidence that we are all descended from one African woman some 140,000 years ago?
That puts a new spin on the word "clan".

in October 2008

A clan is a group of people united by actual or perceived kinship and descent. Even if lineage details are unknown, clan members may be organized around a founding member or apical ancestor. The kinship-based bonds may be symbolical, whereby the clan shares a "stipulated" common ancestor that is a symbol of the clan's unity. When this "ancestor" is non-human, it is referred to as a totem, which is frequently an animal. Clans can be most easily described as tribes or sub-groups of tribes. The word clan is derived from clann meaning children or progeny but not family in the Irish language[1][2] and Scottish Gaelic languages. According to the Oxford English Dictionary, the word was introduced into English around the year 1425 as a label for the tribal nature of the Scottish Highlands society.[3] Clans in indigenous societies are likely to be exogamous, meaning that their members cannot marry one another. Clans preceded more centralized forms of community organization and government; they are located in every country. Members may identify with a coat of arms or other symbol to show they are an independent clan.

let the discussion about CLAN end here :)

What more offline games can we have??

Years ago I found myself on a small island in the marshes off the SE coast of the US. We ate all our food and had hours till bedtime. We devised a backgammon board out of shells and sand. We wrote numbers on paper for the dice. It took hours. Backgammon should be on the list though I don't play my wife any more because she has the ability to roll doubles 3,4, sometimes 5 times in a row. Very Frustrating! I guess we should go to Vegas.

Our kids love cards (luckily I was brought up in a card playing household and love card games too). One of the best games we have just started playing is dominoes. Great for maths and number recognition, not to mention the fun stacking and knocking them over in rows!

Me being a kid, I know how hard this can be for me and my comarades, being so used to our computers and what-not. My advice for any parents having trouble getting their kids into the idea of not using electricity for a bit, start with maybe a game night, every second week. If they like it, you can just keep making the days closer together.

And for any of those people who can easily beat their friends at electronics/video games, try giving them a chance to win at chess.

Playing chess with my hubby is a great fun. I also love doing SuDoku, I prefer using pencil and paper for that game.

This is particularly important for kids. They need toys that require their energy, not the energy of a battery or plug. Better yet, the great outdoors is the best form of entertainment of all.
