GAME, SET, MATCH – AND LOVE
At this time of year, with Holiday gift-giving just around the corner, the thoughts of many folks drift to the challenge of finding the right gift for friends and family. I’m often asked – as I am sure YOU are often asked – “What is a good game to get for a gift?” Generally speaking, I’m thrilled to be asked this question. To me, it means that A) a fellow game enthusiast has been found or B) a potential convert to our wonderful World of Games has been unearthed. But that thrill needs to be tempered with some prudence. Presenting someone with the WRONG game as a gift is the gaming equivalent of taking a leisurely stroll through an idyllic meadow and then discovering you’re in a mine field!!! So, what to do? For me, I take the lead from a different sort of game: the game of tennis.
