Does anyone play any games? Real life games, not computer games? Would you like a game? Since going on to Twitter and asking 76,000 people if they fancied a game, Dave has got involved in all sorts of pastimes and capers. Put simply, Dave has become rather addicted to playing random games with strangers. Amongst more regular games such as darts and snooker, Dave has played: Khet (Egyptian Laser chess), Table Tennis, Kubb (traditional Swedish game of territorial skittles), Pool, Poker, Settlers of Catan (twice), Zombies + Ticket to Ride, Toad in the Hole (traditional Sussex pub game played against a world champion), Agricola, Cribbage, Cluedo, Dominoes, Gobblet, Disc Golf, Ultimate Frisbee, Cranium, Tikal, and Smite (Cornish, mathematical skittles, played at the World Championships). These have taken him all over the country to meet all sorts of people - and it turns out us Brits are a competitive bunch! And it turns out that playing games can teach you a lot about what makes the British tick. Of course, Dave hasn't been keeping score. Much.
