Almost everyone that I told about online game felt that it is a waste of time and money. “You can do better things than just sit there and play your game” would be a common response from them. Haiya… if everybody thinks about doing “better things” all the time, life would be so boring. We do need time to relax, time to play and time to have fun. All work and no play make me a dull person.
Furthermore, not all online games are a waste of time. Most of the games require thinking skills. Games like Backgammon may not be as easy as it looks. Firstly you need to know the Backgammon rules before you can play it well. Of course, you need to constantly use your mind in order to win. That is the difficult part as some of us are not use to exercising our minds. Come to think of it, those who “exercise” their mind constantly seldom get Alzheimer when they get older.
Another advantage of playing online game is that you can actually play Backgammon for money. No, I do no encourage gambling here. It is more of entering a game competition. If you feel that you can win, why not go for it. That is what most of the athletes do in the various tournaments, so why not online gamers do the same.
