Describe a game that you liked to play in your childhood
You should say:
What it was
When and where you played
Who you played with
And explain how you felt about the game
A board game (棋盘游戏) I enjoyed playing as a child was Monopoly. Basically (基本上), players throw a die (掷骰子) and move around a board buying and trading(购买和交易) properties of different values. They can then develop their properties by putting up houses and hotels which increases their value. You then collect rent (收租) from other players who land on(登陆) your properties. Although there are other facets (其他方面) to the game the objective is to bankrupt your opponents (使对手破产). The person who ends up with (最终) the most money is the eventual winner. I used to play it at home with either my parents or with friends on weekends if the weather was bad and we couldn’t play outdoors. I remember we would spend the whole afternoon playing it. Although the rules for Monopoly were more complicated(复杂) than those for other games at that time, they were still easy enough that children could understand them and play the game. The appeal for children was playing with large sums of money, and this is why I was so fascinated by it(为之着迷). And, I loved the feeling of owning something. I also liked to challenge myself and challenge my opponent. Playing the game actually(实际上) stimulated(激发) my ambition of being successful. Arguably it is educational too as it teaches counting, strategy and, if you play in pairs teamwork, decision-making (决策). To be honest, I haven’t played it for years but reflecting on(反思) it now I think it is probably a slightly immoral(不道德的) game, given that the objective is to leave your opponents penniless(身无分文).
