For me I'd say chess. About 10 years ago I got so fed up with my hand held chess computer beating me even at the lowest level that I made a determined effort to improve. 2 years of studying and practicing and £200 worth of chess books later I'd say I'm a pretty strong player. :pi: Not Master level, but I know how to play logically.

Some people are good at other games like draughts (checkers) backgammon or card games.

I'd love to learn bridge but the complexity of the rules has always been a hurdle to me.

I was a good chess player, but I don't play anymore. I'm also good a backgammon and card games generally. Oh, and let's not forget hopscotch.

You payed that much money to learn chess? O_O wow..

Well, I'm pretty good at the card game "Uno", I guess. :) But I've not obsessive over any one particular game at the moment. ;)

No... I don't think so...

It's a pretty simple card game where 8 is the most important card. I don't know the English name for the game!

I'm rubbish at card games, I only know this one! :p

I'm good at logical games (chess, sudoku, puzzles etc.), not very good at sports, and downright awful at anything that depends on the luck factor.

Anything With a Deck of Cards :)

Also one of my fav Hobbies is to get this magazine in the mail and see the back with two pictures, The top being almost exactly alike as the one underneath it with small photoshoped changes and figuring them out, usually nine changes, 2 being obvious and the rest requiring some good eye work.

Problem is after doing them so long i know exactly where to look and what are the most obvious changes done in every single one.

Scrabble... except against grandparents. They must cheat because you can never beat an old fogie at Scrabble. :cln: I've got such a wide knowledge of words I end up using words that people have to look up in the dictionary just to make sure I'm not cheating. :o

And when Pokemon was still the craze, when I was ten or eleven, I used to pwn everyone in the primary school playground at card battles. Nobody would ever battle me any more because I always won their cards when they did. ;_;
