It was a different time when we were growing up. When we finished school on a Friday, unless we’d already made plans it would generally be Monday before we heard from our mates again, there were no mobiles to text and no Social Media to tag each other in.
There were no DVD’s, so if you wanted to watch something it was either on TV or VHS and films would take upwards of 18 months to make it from cinema to video, not the 3 – 6 months we see now. It would take about 5 minutes to rewind the video in the first place as you’d inevitably forgotten to rewind it after it was last watched. Then it chews up and gets tangled and you’re screwed unless there happens to be something good on the 4 channels available on the TV!
So what do you do? Well for us, it would always be a case of turning to a classic board game to help pass the time. We had so many to choose from, an entire cupboard dedicated to board games, which of these do you remember, and which were your favourites?
